The Assam government has signed an MoU with National Building Construction Corporation (India) Ltd for setting up a Twin Tower Trade Centre Guwahati at projected cost of Rs 19.50 billion in self-financing mode.
The project will be implemented at Basistha Crossing near NH-37 within a period of sixty months. The construction work will commence from July 2018 using green technologies and would reflect rich natural heritage and culture of Assam.
“This building is not just an impressive structure but it embodies the spirit of progress, the aspirations of the youth and a world class design,” said Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.
“Today we are two and a half trillion dollar economy and fifty per cent of it is the external sector. This economy is going to be six trillion dollar by the year 2025 and we should therefore be thinking along the lines of Prime Minister’s vision of Swacchata, Housing for all and Smart Cities to reap maximum dividend,” he said.
He said the Twin Tower building is going to be not only a symbol of the greatness of Assam but also a visible manifestation of PM’s Act East Policy.
