The Haryana Government is considering to introduce Mono-rail between Faridabad and Gurgaon, which will further accelerate the pace of development in the area, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said today.

The modalities of the project would be worked out, Hooda said addressing a rally here.

On the occasion, Hooda also announced a bonanza of incentives for the people of Faridabad, which included construction of a road from Bata Chowk to B K Civil Hospital costing Rs 12 crore and rehabilitation of people living in slum areas after carrying out survey in February 2013.

In view of the problem of shortage of power supply in the State, the Chief Minister said soon 20 to 22 hours uninterrupted power supply would be provided to all cities and villages of Haryana.

Hooda also said that on invitation of Bhutan’s Prime Minister, he would visit the country regarding setting up of a new hydel power project there.

He said that under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewable Mission, developmental works costing Rs 849 crore were being implemented in Faridabad.

Hooda said that efforts were being made to extend the Metro Rail line up to Ballabhgarh.
