The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation permanently close a 750m-long section of Ashram Road from Cargo Motors to the RTO, starting in December.
This closure is part of two significant projects: the Vadaj Ramdevpir Tekra slum rehabilitation project and the Gandhi Ashram Memorial and Precinct Development Project.
