Shop-owners of Ashoka Market were allotted shops at different locations across the city for the forthcoming Bhubaneswar Town Centre

Bhubaneswar:9/10/17: The shop-owners of Ashoka Market were allotted shops at different locations across the city for the forthcoming Bhubaneswar Town Centre (BTC) project.
In a lottery conducted in the premises of the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA), the shops were allotted.
129 shop owners, who have to vacate the Ashoka Market, will be accommodated temporarily at Chandralok Market Complex, Niladri Vihar, Ananta Vihar Market Complex, Pokhariput, Samanta Vihar Market Complex near Kalinga Hospital Square, Kalinga Nagar Market Complex (two locations in K-7 and one in K-8 of Kalinga Nagar), Indradahnu Market Complex, Nayapalli and Surya Kiran Market Complex in Sahid Nagar.
Now the shop owners have to vacate the complex within 15 days time starting from today so that the project would start immediately. Singapore-based Surbana Jurong Consultants will design the ambitious BTC project.
It can be mentioned here that following a public notice and individual notices to the allottees of Ashoka Market by BDA, the licensees had filed cases in the Orissa High Court. However, after hearing the High Court directed in its judgement that the licensees have to shift their shops to the new locations allotted by BDA within two weeks time to facilitate the development authority to go ahead with the new construction at the BTC site.
However, as per the High Court order the licensees will be allotted shop rooms in the new complex to be set up at BTC on priority basis, but this would be subjected to conditions laid by the developing authority while allocating the new shops in the proposed complex. It can be mentioned here that on February 16, 2016, BDA issued a public notice to Ashoka Market Merchants’ Society and the individual shop owners.
