Firhad Hakim to inaugurate new office building of NDITA
Kolkata: Firhad Hakim, state minister for Urban Development and Municipal Affairs department, will inaugurate the new office building of Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA) in Sector V on Tuesday.
Sujit Bose, Minister of State for Fire and Emergency Services department (Independent charge) will also be present at the function. Since the inception of NDITA 13 years ago, the agency used to function from Unnayan Bhavan, the headquarters of Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) in Salt Lake which does not come under the jurisdiction of the NDITA.
The new four-storeyed building will have a ground level coffee corner and a permanent exhibition centre where IT products made in Sector V will be showcased. The space will also be used to exhibit the steps of good practices taken by the NDITA including rainwater harvesting, zero waste segregation and the like to create public awareness. The ministers will also inaugurate a pocket park. Pocket parks have become very popular in Western countries and are especially for IT professionals who take a break from their busy work schedules and come for a visit to relax for a bit and enjoy the greenery. They often take light refreshments and interact with their colleagues to lessen the strain and stress they undergo every day. This will be the second pocket park. The first one is extremely popular. The state government has been planning a well-defined traffic management system for Sector V where thousands of people come for work everyday.
