JDA: Jaipur city to go under major makeover
Most guidebooks on Jaipur will have Hawa Mahal on their cover. It has almost become the symbol of the city, but Jaipur is much more than just that. In fact, it is much more than all its forts and popular places combined. The essence of Jaipur is in its streets and JDA is on a mission to makeover the entire city. In a move that has fortified Jaipur Development Authority’s (JDA) plans to beautify the city, an executive committee passed several tenders and bids for the development of the city in a meeting held at the Manthan auditorium of JDA on Monday.
The Jaipur beautification project
