Manjhiyaon Master Plan 2040 has been created for Manjhiyaon. The district of Garhwa is situated in the north-west part of the State. Garhwa district is bordered by river Sone on the north, Palamu district on the east, Surguji district (Chhattisgarh state) on the south, Sonebhadra district (Uttar Pradesh state) on the west. The district is spread over an area of 4,044 sq. km which is nearly 5% of total geographical area of the state. The district consists of three sub divisions namely Garhwa, Nagar Untari and Ranka. The total population of the Manjhiyaon Town in 2001 was 21,688 which reached 18,349 in 2011. The reason behind negative growth in total Population is the change in the boundaries and formation of Manjhiyaon Town after 2001. Hence, the population figures for the Manjhiyaon Town before 2001 has been taken from the population values of the villages, which existed before the formation of Manjhiyaon. The population of the rest of the 2 villages in the project area is 4,075 in 2011 as per Census of India.
Vision of Manjhiyaon Master Plan 2040
The vision statement for the development of any place/region becomes very much important since it helps in visualization of where and how one wants the city to be in the coming years. It should be carefully carved out and should encompass the aspirations of its local people and various other stakeholders involved directly or indirectly in the development process. The Master Plan for the Manjhiyaon Area has evolved from a comprehensive understanding of the existing situation, land utilization pattern, land suitability& potential analysis, and population projections carried out for the area. The process so far has involved an exploration of several alternatives, for each of which, certain principles, laid down with a view to achieving the vision for the project area, have been primary guiding factors. While the conceptual studies may differ in their design, the approach and underlying concerns, as briefly stated below, are the same.
