Sirsa Master Plan 2021 has been created for Sirsa. Sirsa town lies on the National Highway no. 10 i.e. Delhi-Hisar-Sulemanki road. Sirsa is the only important town situated on the extreme west side of Haryana. Its distance by road from other nearest district-headquarter namely Fatehabad(Haryana), Mansa(Punjab), Bhatinda(Punjab) and Ganganagar(Rajasthan) is 41 kilometers, 55 kilometers, 100 kilometers and 190 kilometers respectively. Its hinterland which was inhospitable desert before the advent of “Bhakra Canal System”, has now become the fertile “cotton belt” of Haryana. Recently the importance of this town has been further enhanced due to recent completion of broad gauge railway line in December 1994 as the town has now been integrated with the nationwide broad gauge railway network.
