Project Brief: The city of Nashik was designated as one of the 13 Heritage Cities under the JNNURM Scheme. The heritage components of the city – tangible and intangible have multiple layers of history overlaid. At the outset, the Nashik CDP had identified three conservation issues for the city: a) the conservation of the river, b) the conservation of heritage structures, and c) the conservation of the areas around these structures as well as the old city core. These three issues form the basis for a holistic approach to heritage conservation through the three DPR’s - a DPR on Heritage Conservation and two conjunctive ones on Riverfront development and on Urban Renewal of the old city.

Project Cost: 118 crores (All three DPR’s)

Project duration: July 2007 - August 2008

Project Status: DPR Completed
