Bhuj Area Development Authority

After the severe earthquake of 2001, more than 90% of Bhuj was shattered. Houses as well as all types of civic amenities including schools, healthcare centers, etc. suffered massively. Utilities like water supply, electricity, communication etc. were also disrupted badly. All these devastations had forced the government to look for a proper rehabilitation program for the people of Bhuj and as a result Bhuj Area Development Authority was formed. The aim of this authority is to work for relocation, construction of houses, town planning, and development of overall infrastructure. The guidelines of this authority are given as per the Gujarat Town Planning and Urban Development Act of 1976.
