NEW DELHI: Delhiites will get to experience wildlife safari soon, with the central government saying a city forest or eco park will be developed at the closed site of Badarpur Thermal Power Station at a cost of Rs 343 crore.
Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on March 7 the city forest will be provided with unique herbivore and carnivore safari.
Talking to reporters here, Puri said the ecological project will be spread across 884 acres at the closed site of National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) in Badarpur.
According to the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry, the NTPC power plant is closed since October 15, 2018.

“The city forest or eco park will be developed in 24 months,” Puri said.
Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Vice-Chairman Tarun Kapoor said the NTPC will develop an eco-park on its area, which will be handed over to an appropriate agency in consultation with the ministry after development.
Besides, the government will develop ‘Bharat Vandana Park’ in Dwarka Sector 20 based on the mini-India concept, which will have cuisines from different states, an aquarium and recreation zones.
Kapoor said the tentative cost of ‘Bharat Vandana Park’ is Rs 446 crore and the project will be executed in 24 months. PTI
