Imphal: Manipur Cabinet has taken a decision and declared all the five valley districts of Manipur as Plan Area with the institution of State Planning Board, chief minister N. Biren Singh said on Thursday.
No works ( projects or construction ) will be allowed to take up in the Plan Area of the state without the consent of the state planning board, Biren said this while interacting with reporters at Khuman Lampak Sports Complex, here, on Thursday.
He said a notice will be issued in this regard.
The restriction is imposed under MLR Act to save the lawns and agricultural land in the valley and to function development works systematically, the chief minister said.
The Biren led Manipur government has been taking up measures to prevent misutilisation of agricultural lands for non-agricultural purposes.
