The land will be developed in partnership with the National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd (NBCC).

“The creation of a city-level destination near a beautiful lake will enhance the local economy and help change and upgrade the area. This will eventually restore a sense of safety and social pride in the vicinity of Trilokpuri and Kalyanpuri,” DDA Vice-Chairman, Balwinder Kumar was quoted in the media as saying. He added that the basic objective of the project was to enhance environmental value and usability of the lake which has been shrinking gradually.
