New Delhi games village plan

New Delhi Games Village is something completely new that is happening in New Delhi or even in India
A 47.3 hectare (118 acre) picturesque site has been selected on the banks of the holy river Yamuna. To be created at a cost of USD 40 million, the Games Village has been underwritten by the government. There will be no cost to the Organizing Committee. Within its immediate vicinity are heritage monuments and historical landmarks. Combined with the dense green natural cover on the sides, it will be a relaxing and soothing environment for the athletes and officials. Athletes and Officials from all sports will stay at this one village. This facility will provide ultimate world class facility to the athlete. The development is in full swing. Setting out a time table, government said the work on sports venues was proposed to be completed by December 2009, which is a kind of risk if you compare it with the dates when the games are supposed to start, the Games Village by August 2010 and civic infrastructure in phases by September 2010.
The government is on the look out for many other venues in and around New Delhi to hold many different events. The planning are all complete and it's just the implementation that is taking place.
The estimated expenditure for holding the games would be around Rs.37.50 billion ($805.81 million). This will be given to the Indian Olympic Association Organizing Committee on a "revenue-neutral" basis.
