Hazratganj is the hub of Lucknow , the Capital of Uttar Pradesh, in terms of culture, academia, business, administration, politics(UP) and history etc. Hazratganj used to be the main market place and recreation destination for lucknowites. With the passage of time, the grabbing of foot paths and open spaces by fruit sellers, parking agencies, rikshaw pullers and even illegal extension by shopkeepers, hoardings etc. disturbed the whole serenity & pleasure of Hazratganj. The matter attracted the powers in force which resulted into serious upliftment of the area in order to achieve its lost image. The project was planned and finalized in 2009 and completed in 2011. The total Project cost was Rs.400 crores. Now all the roads in the Ganj are skid free, road dividers removed, no encroachments at any site, a multi level parking, hoardings are such that the grandeur of buildings is not masked and there is uniform colour on all buildings.
