Chandigarh : The Haryana government Friday announced that a new township, Sampla, will be developed near Rohtak, about 60 km from the national capital.
The new urban estate will be located between Bahadurgarh and Rohtak towns.
Sampla will be spread over 7,180 hectares and will have three facilities – a cyber city, a medi-city and a biosciences city – in its vicinity. It will cater to a population of nearly 300,000 residents, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said here.
The decision to develop a new city was taken at a meeting of the state-level committee of the town and country planning department here Friday under the chief minister.
