Farukhnagar Master Plan 2031 has been created for Farukhnagar town in Gurugram district. Farukhnagar town is Sub-Tehsil of Gurugram District. The town lies on Jhajjar-Gurugram State Highway No.15A. The town is located in south of Haryana State at a distance of approximately 21 kilometers from Gurugram, 27 kilometers from Jhajjar, 20 kilometers from Pataudi and 52 kilometers from the National Capital Delhi. The town is just 3 kilometers away from the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway towards west.
Farukhnagar, about 21 kilometers from Gurugram is a town, octagonal in shape and was founded by a Baluch Chief, who was a Governor appointed by Emperor Farukhsiyar, after whom the place was presumably named. Faujdar Khan assumed the title of Nawab in A.D. 1738 and the Nawabs of Farukhnagar played an important role in the history of the town till its annexation by the British. This estate was confiscated in 1858 because the Nawab had participated in the 1857 uprising.
Vision of Farukhnagar Master Plan 2031
In the following decades i.e. 2011-2021 AD and 2021-2031 AD, an induced growth rate has been envisaged keeping in view the pace of development and the upcoming projects such as Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway and the various theme hubs like World Trade Hub, Leisure Hub and Entertainment Hub etc. proposed in proximity along the KMP Expressway.

In addition, the impact of the rapid development of Gurugram city has also been taken into consideration. Therefore, the Draft Development Farukhnagar Master Plan 2031 is prepared for a population of 125000 by 2031 AD.
