Prithla Master Plan 2031 has been created for Prithla. . Prithla is located in National Capital Region at National Highway number-2 (Delhi-Mathura road) between Faridabad-Ballabhgarh and Palwal. Nearest railway stations are Ashawati, Ballabhgarh and Palwal and the nearest airport is Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi. It is geographically located at 28°13’ North Latitude and 77°18’ East Longitude.
The Government of India in year 2007 decided to construct a Dedicated Rail Freight Corridor linking Delhi and Mumbai namely Delhi-Mumbai Dedicated Freight Corridor. As per the alignment surveyed by RITES, the proposed 2762 kilometers corridor will enter Haryana in District Mahendragarh near Narnaul and pass through District Rewari, Dharuhera, Taoru, Sohna and Asaoti near Prithla from where it is proposed to go to Tuglakabad (New Delhi) and Dadri (U.P.).
Vision of Prithla Master Plan 2031
First Final Development Plan for Faridabad-Ballabgarh controlled area was published on 19th January, 1966. Since Faridabad-Ballabgarh complex was an important industrial town, therefore, Department continued to declare additional controlled areas around this urban complex and also amended Development Plan from time to time. Trend of development is observed mostly on Prithla-Dudhola road and Prithla-Jatola road in a haphazard way. Therefore, controlled areas around industrial/religious sites and Expressway have been declared to prevent ill planned and haphazard Development. A small stretch of land in village Prithla and adjoining villages situated between the controlled areas of Faridabad-Ballabgarh complex and Palwal though has potential for development but because of statutory limit of 8 kilometers up to which controlled areas could be declared, this area could neither be covered in the controlled area of Faridabad-Ballabgarh nor in that of Palwal.
Objective of Prithla Master Plan 2031
The proposed township which is located quite close to Delhi and also has good connection with the surrounding areas is proposed to be developed mainly as industrial and logistic hub/Dry Port City. In order to prepare a meaningful, realistic and pragmatic Prithla Master Plan 2031 inconsonance with Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Global Corridor Plan and alignment of Delhi-Mumbai Dedicated Freight Corridor, it is imperative to include adjoining parts of Controlled Areas of Faridabad-Ballabgarh and Palwal, Development Plans of Faridabad- Ballabgarh and Palwal would also be partially modified to the extent of urbanization proposals given in the Draft Development Plan of Prithla Controlled Area in the adjoining areas of Faridabad-Ballabgarh and Palwal Controlled Areas.
