Proposed Land Use Pattern of Gangtok Town in 2020
1. Development of New Township

The Gangtok town has been already been facing pressure from all  aspects  due to rise in population and has little scope for availability of space for infrastructure development. The development of Alternate Township is essential to cope with the future urbanization.
The government has pleased to appoint RITES, a Government of India enterprise as consultants. The project has been already prepared for development of township at Reshithang /Ranka covering 750 hectares requiring Rs.260crores.The project has been submitted for consideration by the Government of India.

2. Neighbourhood Market Development
The capital town of Gangtok has small markets in its neighborhood like Ranipool, Tadong and Burtuk. At present the utilization of only one marketing center in the capital town has been creating congestion.  The development of these markets with the facilities available in the capital market will help in decongesting the capital town.

3. Lal Bazar Development

Lal Bazaar is the main marketing center for day to day consumer items. There is no scope for horizontal development and the proposal is to make multistoried marketing complex.   In the meeting with the Chief Minister and the Union minister Shri Jagmohanji ,Rs. 9.57 crore has been approved for the scheme and the work will be taken by NBCC.
