Narwana Master Plan 2021 has been created for Narwana. Narwana town is situated on Rohtak-Narwana-Patiala National Highway No. 71. It is located at 29° 7’ north latitude and 76° 6’ east longitude at a distance of 89 kilometers from Rohtak towards north-east direction. It is well connected with Punjab and other important towns of Haryana viz Rohtak, Jind, Hisar, Tohana, Kaithal, Ambala, Karnal, Chandigarh, Assandh and Safidon. Delhi-Ferozpur railway line is passing through the town and is making a junction with the Narwana-Kurukshetra railway line.
Narwana town is one of the developing towns of Jind district. The name of Narwana appears to have been derived from Nirwan (salvation). In the year 1941, Narwana was classified as a town for the first time. Narwana town was a part of princely state of Patiala till 1948.
Vision of Narwana Master Plan 2021
The town has experienced considerable changes in its physical and functional structures, only in the record past as a result of which lot of haphazard and unplanned growth of the town has taken place. To control and regulate the urban development a sizeable area around Narwana town has been declared as controlled area under the Punjab scheduled roads and controlled area restriction of Unregulated Development Act 1963, vide Haryana Government Gazette notification no. 115-104 DP-82/3166, dated 23.2.82, published on 11.5.82. After the formation of Haryana state i.e. on 1st November, 1966 it was upgraded as a sub-divisional headquarter of Jind, the newly created district of Haryana so the need of the planned development plans was felt. The draft development plan up to 2021 AD for a population of 110000 has been prepared.
Objective of Narwana Master Plan 2021
The average decennial growth rate during the last six decades from 1941 to 2001 was about 39.08 %. But we can conclude that it can increase up to 45 to 50 % that is due to the development of HUDA sectors and industrial activity in the town. If it is assumed that same rates of population growth continue, the urban population by the year 2021 AD would be 1.10 lacs. While it may not be possible to make a precise forecast but it is expected that the population of Narwana may range from 1.10 to 1.5 lacs in year 2021. Requirement of land infrastructure, transportation, etc. is therefore planned for the population of 1.10 lacs.
