2. Chamati Land Pooling Project:

Kathmandu Metropolitan City, with help of the government, has come up with another mega project, to develop the 1,355 ropani of land across the Bishnumati behind Swoyambhu into a well-managed residential area.

The fertile farmland beside the Bishnumati, being haphazardly developed into residential areas with sporadic buildings, is being brought into a system of planning.

Around 30 people including technicians are working these days to collect 3,502 plots of land and re-distribute the land to the owners after developing the area with open spaces, broad roads, drains, electricity, drinking water and telephone line facilities.

KMC’s Chamati Land Pooling Project has already stopped plot division and physical changes in area 1 ka and 1 kha of ward No 15 including area 1 ka and 1 kha of Ward No 16. The area south of Banasthali Ring Road, east of Banasthali Swoyambhu Road, north of Bijayashwori Swoyabhu Road and west of the Bishnumati river falls in the project area.

KMC is authorized to acquire the land as per Town Development Act 2045.
