The Centre has plans to develop dedicated zones in state capitals to house its offices on the lines of Central Secretariat in Delhi, an official said Tuesday.

The Central Public Works Department, under the Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry, has sought details from its zonal officers regarding the requirement of office space and land available with it and other central government departments in state capitals.

"Once the CPWD gets the details, a proper proposal with estimated cost will be placed before senior officers of the Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry," the official said.

State governments have their own secretariats where offices of various departments are housed. However, there is no centralised place for central government offices in states.

The Union cabinet made an observation recently on construction of central secretariats in state capitals.
