The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike was on Monday sanctioned Rs 100 crore from under Centre’s Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission for the road upgradation works of IT-BT roads and flood affected roads.

A sum of Rs 54 crore has been released for works related to Rs 686.56 crore worth projects like Storm Water Drain remodelling and Malleswaram Circle Underpass, BBMP Commissioner K Jairaj said. It is said that sum was released late on Monday after BBMP Chief Engineer (Projects) A M Ranganath met Centre’s Urban Development Secretary M Ramachandran in New Delhi. Mr Ranganath also made a presentation on the detailed project reports of the road upgradation works to JN-NURM’s Central Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee.
