Noida Extension home buyers want Greater Noida Master Plan passed

in Plan

The uncertainty looming over Noida Extension homebuyers has forced them to write to the NCR Planning Board to clear the Greater Noida Master Plan 2021 at the earliest so that construction of pending projects can resume.

“We have appealed to the planning board to clear the Master Plan so that flat buyers get possession of their houses in time,” said secretary of Noida Extension Flat Buyers’ Welfare Association (NEFBWA), G L Sagar.

On the other hand, the NCRPB says that due process has to be followed before clearance is given to the Master Plan. “There are no time limits for clearing the plan,” said a senior official of the Board. “The plan has been submitted to us, but we have to examine it in detail as it involves the fate of the entire NCR that has four state governments as stakeholders,” added the official.

After notification of the NCR Regional Plan 2021 in 2005, the four state governments involved — Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh — are preparing their respective sub-regional plans with financial assistance from the NCRPB. The sub-regional plan of UP, which includes the Master Plan 2021 of Greater Noida Authority, has to conform to the provisions of the Regional Plan 2021 regarding environment, drainage, solid waste management, rural development, etc.

Greater Noida Authority officials agree that the NCRPB is not time-bound to clear the plan. “It’s due to this reason that we have filed a review petition in the Allahabad High Court seeking its nod to resume construction activities in Noida Extension,” said an Authority official.

The line, she said, would not only benefit the residents of nearby sectors but also help a large number of people commuting daily to Ballabhgarh from other NCR areas.

The detailed project report is expected to be completed by the month-end, said Rathore. Once the report is completed, it will be forwarded to the Union government for its approval.

Sub-divisional magistrate I P Bishnoi said the extension of Metro will also be beneficial to the people coming from Agra, Mathura, and Palwal etc, who can avail of the facility from Ballabhgarh.

On the cost factor, Bishnoi said: “At the time of the finalization of the project till YMCA, the cost was about Rs138 crore per kilometre and it has now risen to Rs 200 crore, taking the total cost to approximately Rs 400 crore for a two kilometre stretch.”
