Taking first step towards developing the metro region, Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) has prepared a plan for what could be a small town near Jamtha. The scheme will come up on 1,000 hectares on outer ring road and contain all basic amenities.
The scheme will cover five villages-Kirmiti, Khadka, Sumthana, Panjara, and Shivmadka situated near Jamtha. Consent of around 500 land owners and villages has been taken. The plan is ready and will be sent for approval to the state government within three months. The scheme may increase the value of land by almost ten times when fully complete.
"NIT will provide all basic amenities including 12-metre or wider roads, water, sewage lines, gardens, streetlights etc. NIT will keep 40% of the land for amenities and remaining 60% will be with owners.

The owners may develop layouts or construct flat schemes etc. The scheme will be well connected to outer ring road. NIT is also planning to go for widening of outer ring road on this stretch from existing 60-80 metres to 150 metres.
