The National Capital Region, Regional Plan 2021 AD proposes 78,757 population for Jhajjar. Although the location of this district headquarter i.e. Jhajjar town is on the cross roads of NationalHighway 71 and various state highways but coming up of the Rohtak- Jhajjar- Rewari broad gauge Regional Rail Network alignment towards west (which approved in 2006 by the Railway authorities), development of Kundli- Manesar- Palwal (KMP) Western Periphery Expressway in the close vicinity (approximately15 kilometers away) towards east to this district , Four laning of Rewari – Jhajjar – Rohtak- (National Highway 71); widening of the state highways linking Jhajjar with Bahadurgarh, Badli, Gurgaon, Dadri, Beri, sampla etc has increased connectivity and leads to infer that Jhajjar has high potentials for industrial and urban development through induced growth.
