Once the plan is finalized after incorporating the suggestion of the officials, it will be presented to the Chief Minister for his approval. Earlier ‘Raj Expedith Architects’ (REA) were supposed to be involved in the project. REA exited the project and appointment of another firm in their place took some time.
