The largest multifunctional sports complex in Arunachal, with a maximum seating of 15,000 people, is coming along nicely in the Papum Pare region. The project, which was approved in 2014, was meant to be finished by 2018, but development has been halted owing to a variety of factors, including the Covid epidemic. Nevertheless, most of the progress has been made, and just the car park needs to be built. The program’s overall cost is Rs 59.48 crore. The stadium’s development authority, the urban development (UD) division, is currently expecting the government to approve the amended estimate provided for completion of the job.
“Aside from the parking lot, several further modifications must be performed before the stadium is handed over to the sports department.” “We have presented a revised estimate, and the state administration is taking our proposal carefully,” said UD Deputy Director Gyamar Tachung. He stated that after the development is complete, a group of authorities from the chief engineer’s (CE) office will conduct a final check. “The stadium would be turned over to the sports department only if the CE office is pleased,” Tachung explained.

There will also be a media room, a 16-room hostel, a gymkhana, and other amenities at the arena. “It will be an international class stadium featuring an 800-meter track and field, football field, javelin, and other facilities.” Except for cricket, all other athletic activities may be held there,” Tachung remarked. T Darang, the CE of Urban Development, stated that if the new estimate is approved by the government, the stadium might be built in 5 months. “Only the parking issue at Yupia Stadium needs to be rectified.”
“The state administration has been quite supportive, and we are hoping that the amended estimate will be sanctioned shortly, so that construction may be done as soon as possible,” Darang added. He went on to say that the UD department is also building the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Naharlagun, which is nearing completion. Tadar Appa, the department’s sports director, stated that the department is awaiting the construction of the Yupia stadium. “This is the state’s largest stadium, and it will be a huge benefit to the sports department,” he added. Concerning the delay in finishing the stadiums in Aalo, Tezu, and Chimpu, the director stated that the state administration is concerned about the poor pace and is working hard to expedite the construction.
