Haryana Government Notifies Faridabad Master Plan 2031
Haryana Government has notified the development plan 2031 for NCR city Faridabad for a projected population of over 39.55 lakhs. The master plan has been framed keeping in view the overall town density of 115 persons per hectare, to accommodate 39.55 lakh people by 2031 within the urbanisation area of 34,368 hectares, said an official spokesman.
The plan has proposals for urbanisation of areas from Delhi border in the north up to foothills of Aravalli ranges in the west, beyond Gurugram-Agra Canal in the east and up to the revenue estate of village Jharsently in the south.
Under the plan, an area of 14,558 hectares has been proposed for residential purposes on the basis of the average residential density of 271 persons per hectare (PPH). Every residential sector would be developed to sector density indicated in the drawing with 20 percent variation on either side and, in addition to it, the density as prescribed in the New Integrated Licensing Policy, Affordable Group Housing policy and Transit Oriented Development Policy.

An area of 2,078 hectares has been proposed for commercial purposes. Since there is a tendency of converting existing residential areas into commercial areas along major roads, the present plan proposes commercial land use along major roads in a linear pattern along the sector roads between various sectors to curb the tendency to convert residential areas into commercial use. In addition, sectors 100, 120 and 154 have been proposed as the city centre.
An area of 6,179 hectares has been proposed for industrial development. The existing gas based thermal plant has already been accommodated in the development plan as a special zone. The HSIIDC has already developed an Industrial Model Township (IMT) in Sectors 66, 67, 68 and 69 situated in the east of Agra Canal. Due to the existence of industries in Sector 13, land use, there has been changed from institutional to industrial-cum-institutional, said he.
For smooth channelization of inter-city traffic, circulation pattern has been proposed in the development plan. Delhi-Mathura Road (National Highway No. 44), would continue to be the central axis for interstate traffic to Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
To relieve this road from external traffic, a 60- metre-wide bypass road has been constructed by HUDA, as per the provisions of published Final Development Plan-2011 A.D.
The spokesman said in accordance with the proposals of Regional Plan 2021 A.D. of NCRPB, provision of Regional Rapid Transit System along the existing Delhi-Mathura Railway line had also been made. Further, a regional plan provides for inner regional orbital rail corridor (IRORC) to connect Sonepat-Jhajjar-Gurugram-Faridabad-Dadri-Meerut-Baghpat-Sonepat, the spokesman said.
