New Delhi: The Delhi government cleared six developmental projects worth 590 million including one for enhancing security arrangements at the Tihar jail, the country's biggest prison.

The Tihar central jail will purchase three X-Ray Baggage Inspection System and 12 X-Ray Portable Scanners for setting up a control room, Delhi Finance and Planning Minister A.K. Walia said.

The works under Phase-III include construction of auditorium, guesthouse, sports complex, shopping complex, three hostels for boys and extension of library building and computer centre.

"The proposed works are essential in order to develop the institute in a manner as to achieve the status of a deemed university in the near future," the minister said.

The institute currently caters to around 2,000 students and plans are afoot to increase the strength to 4,000.

The irrigation and flood department proposes to reconstruct 28 bridges on the canals of Haryana's irrigation department falling in the jurisdiction of Delhi. Works worth 18.6 million would be completed by March 2007.
