About Cuttack

Cuttack City is situated in between two major rivers i.e. Mahanadi and Kathajodi, as such its geographical expansion towards north and south is limited.

The Population of the city has been increased considerably during the last few decades. To provide residential and commercial facilities to the increased demand of population, a High level committee under the Chairmanship of R.D.C. ( CD), Cuttack was constituted with reference to Revenue Department, Memo No. 3441/ R/dt. 14.8.83 regarding extension of Cuttack city.

The above Branches have been assigned with specific subjects under the sole control of the Vice-Chairman who is a whole time Member and Ex-Official President of the Authority. A section is a unit in a Branch-in-Charge of a Section Officer.

The committee suggested expansion of the city towards the Bidanasi area beyond the existing protective embankment of Kathajori and Mahanadi. About 2000 acres of land was made available for expansion of Cuttack City and the development work was entrusted to CDA. Accordingly CDA has taken out ‘Bidanasi Triangle Development Project’ comprising of 15 sectors divided into residential, institutional and commercial sectors. By now, CDA has under­taken Plotted Development Scheme of Sector-1, Sector-6, Sector-7, Sector-8, Sector-9, Sector-10, Sector-11, Sector-12(P), and Sector-13.

Lands of this project under the Bidanasi Triangle Development area comprise both Govt. and private lands. In case of Govt. land, CDA submits alienation proposal before the Revenue Authorities for its alienation in favour of CDA. The private lands are acquired under land acquisition proceedings under Land Acquisition Act.
