The Development Plan for this area has been prepared for the perspective year 2021 A.D.
Objective of Taraori Master Plan 2021
Keeping in view the above projections, both the towns are being planned for a population of 1.25 lacs persons by the year 2021 AD. The development of existing Taraori town is within Municipal Committee limit and towards the Western side of Railway Line. So the proposed area for future development of town has also been kept mainly on this side. A ring road has been proposed to connect the two towns with each other and with Grand Trunk Road. The overall development plan proposes to divide the entire development plan area into 16 sectors containing various urban land uses like Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Institutional etc. The location of these land uses has been done keeping in view the existing conditions geographical aspects, easy traffic flow and convenience to the future and present uses. The major road pattern as indicated on the plan is proposed to be in Grid iron form. These towns are proposed to be developed as low density towns with an overall town density of 65 persons per hectare over an urbanizable area of approximately 1963 hectares (4849 acres), which includes the area within existing municipal limits. The entire area beyond this proposed urbanizable zone is being kept as a rural zone.
