Naya Raipur

A new city takes root

Hon. Chief Minister

“Naya Raipur will be the flag bearer of a resurgent

Chhattisgarh. It will reflect the rich heritage and natural
beauty of the state while marching ahead to become
India’s best planned and modern city”
... and the plans for its new capital

On the 1st of November 2000, the state of Chhattisgarh was

formed carving it out of the erstwhile state of Madhya
Pradesh. The largest city in the region – ‘Raipur’ – became its
capital. It was soon realized that the state needed a new
modern city to be developed close to Raipur to meet the
multiple needs of a fast growing state.
RANCHI A new city called ‘Naya Raipur’ about 20 kilometers away from
Raipur on its southeast would give shape to the dreams of
MUMBAI policy makers, planners, administrators and common citizens
of Chhattisgarh.
