Planned and developed by CIDCO, New Aurangabad holds the singular distinction of obtaining the blessings of the Late Prime Minister of India Mrs.
Indira Gandhi, who inaugurated the project signing the development plan with the remark: “The plans look very good on paper, let us see how it is implemented”.
New Aurangabad Project was also fortunate because Mrs. Indira Gandhi once visited the project after the implementation of the plan started, and also planted a tree at New Aurangabad, which is nurtured and maintained by CIDCO as a precious treasure.
The New Aurangabad project has speedily grown and blossomed, just like this fortunate tree. New Aurangabad is today a well-planned new town, one of the best in the country. The high level of social facilities provided has created a healthy urban environment for all strata of the society. But for this planned development by CIDCO, the rapid pace of New Aurangabad’s industrialization would have led to haphazard overall growth. By providing nearly 20,000 houses to persons belonging to Low Income Groups, CIDCO has not only met the needs of the labour force, but also been able to meet a major social objective of the Government that of providing houses at affordable cost to the urban poor in Marathwada. Special emphasis on gardens, playgrounds and stadia has created an impression of an open city with wide roads. Development of the Dr. Salim Ali Lake as a Bird sanctuary has further added to the charm of the urban environment.
