    Bridges, red granite walkways: Sample shows what Central Vista will look like

    Red granite walkways with greenery all around, bridges to cross canals, stone benches at regular intervals, and ample lighting — a sample stretch of the Central Vista Avenue offers a peek into what the avenue would look like once ready.

    The sample stretch — 190 metres long and 45 metres wide — sports red granite stones from Rajasthan, replacing the bajri sand that lined the ground earlier. The stones, both square and rectangle in shape, have been placed symmetrically. Walkways and green buffers have also been created. The width of the walkway is 4.6 metres along Rajpath. In other parts of the avenue, it will be 3 metres wide.

    When contacted, Bimal Patel, director, HCP Design, Planning and Management Pvt. Ltd, the firm designing the Central Vista, told The Indian Express, “The sample stretch is ready, and we are quite pleased with how it has turned out. The work on Central Vista Avenue is progressing at a good pace. The contractors are doing their best to make up for delays caused by the pandemic, and the Avenue is expected to be ready in time for the next Republic Day Parade.”

    What’s new, what changes

    Fence, lighting: Officials working on the project said the heritage chain link fence and light poles are being refurbished and reinstalled.

    The stretch will have a total of 1,058 light poles, aimed at making it more pedestrian-friendly even after dark. These will include the old-refurbished ones and new light poles which will have the same design. Of this, 137 will be installed on Rajpath while the remaining will be installed in the canals, parking area, India Gate, and other parts of the avenue.

    As for the chain links, officials said they have been removed and stored securely for now.

    Bollards: The old structures have been removed and new ones are being installed. Officials said the bollards were earlier made of sandstone and replaced with concrete over the years. The plan envisages going back to sandstone bollards.

    Green areas: Green buffer zones have been created on the sample stretch. The lawn on Rajpath, akin to the lawns that existed previously, is 50 metres wide, while the green buffer along the canal is around 5 metres wide. The green zones between the canal and the parking area and around the canals will be around 30 metres wide, while those between the parking and compound walls will be 20 metres in most places. The green zones comprise grass and a few plants that have been planted at intervals.

    Trees: Most of the jamun trees which have been around for a century remain intact. However, 26 out of those 1,180 rai-jamun trees are being transplanted to make space for public amenities such as toilets. While they are being shifted on the stretch itself, some experts are unsure of the chances of survival.

    The avenue will have around 3,900 trees in total, of which 40 are nearing the end of their natural life cycle and will not be replaced. Species on the stretch also include Pride of India and Safeda.

    Other features: A few stone benches with engraved motifs have been placed on the sample stretch; a total of 400 such benches will line the avenue. At least one bridge over the canal is ready and there will be 16 such bridges (eight on each side). Work on the pedestrian underpasses is ongoing and there will be four such underpasses — two at the Rajpath-Janpath intersection and two where the Rajpath meets the C-Hexagon.

    Areas around the sample stretch are in different stages of completion.

      ​The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) had earlier issued guidelines mandating owners of existing and new properties measuring 100 square metres and above to install RWH structures.

      NEW DELHI: The Delhi government on Monday said it will provide financial assistance up to Rs 50,000 and a rebate of 10 per cent on water bills to encourage people to install rooftop rainwater harvesting systems.

      The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) had earlier issued guidelines mandating owners of existing and new properties measuring 100 square metres and above to install RWH structures.

      "The city government has extended the last date for the implementation of the RWH provisions till December 31, 2021," the water utility said in a statement.

      Also, it will not be mandatory to take DJB certification for rainwater harvesting systems from now on.

      "The Kejriwal government has also relaxed the compliance guidelines...the installed RWH systems can be certified by an architect registered with the Council of Architecture on the condition that the structure is made as per DJB guidelines," the statement said.

      "For the installation of RWH systems, the government will provide financial assistance of 50 per cent of the cost, up to a maximum of Rs 50,000, and 10 per cent rebate on water bills," Water Minister and DJB chairman Satyendar Jain said.

      For plots measuring between 100 sq m and 199.99 sq m, financial assistance of 50 per cent of the total cost of the RWH structure or Rs 10,000, whichever is lesser, will be provided.

      Similarly, Rs 20,000 or 50 per cent of the cost of the RWH structure will be given for plots measuring between 200 sq m and 299.99 sq m and so on.

      It is must to have an adequacy certificate for the RWH system to avail these benefits, Jain said.

        Delhi development authority makes land pooling flexible and attractive

        The proposed ADC norms, which would see implementation of new features like vertical mixing and transferable development rights for the first time in Delhi, were approved at the Authority’s meeting chaired by lieutenant governor Anil Baijal.
        NEW DELHI: Delhi Development Authority on Tuesday gave its final approval to additional development control (ADC) norms for areas notified under its ambitious land pooling policy, in order to make it more attractive for landowners & private developers.

        The proposed ADC norms, which would see implementation of new features like vertical mixing and transferable development rights for the first time in Delhi, were approved at the Authority’s meeting chaired by lieutenant governor Anil Baijal.

        The policy, which was notified in 2018 and aims to overcome the cumbersome process of land acquisition by making landowners equal partners in the development process, has seen 6930.4 hectares of land submitted for pooling till December 20, 2020, through a web portal launched in February 2019. While DDA is to play the role of a facilitator, it is working towards initiating planning and development in some likely-to-be eligible sectors.

        Officials admitted, on the condition of anonymity, that though overall enough land has been pooled to create a sub-city, the land parcels are scattered and need readjustment as the response from landowners has been far short of what was expected.

        “That is why, these ADC norms have been brought to allow more flexibility to developers and make the policy more attractive. Now mixed use in the land pooling areas has also been approved, including high-intensity mixed-use development along major transportation corridors,” said an official.

        Vertical mixing, a first for the capital, would allow multiple uses in a single structure with maximum FAR of 400 and transferable development rights, which is a new concept for the capital. It would be possible to build more commercial spaces in the pooled area or more residential ones, depending on the market demand. “For instance, flexibility to convert commercial use to residential has been permitted as long as the norms are not violated. The development should not be monotonous, and developers can take up land pooling projects based on market demand,” said the official.

        The total area that can be built at the sector level can be varied or loaded across different plots in a sector but without exceeding the maximum FAR limit of the sector, so that an overall balance is maintained.

        The new norms also allow plotted development in areas notified for land pooling in a cluster of a minimum size of 5,000 sq m on a net residential plot. Priority has been given to walkability, enhanced open spaces, public plazas and active frontage in the sectors. The proposed ADC norms will now be forwarded to the union ministry of housing and urban affairs for its consideration and final notification.

        The policy is at present applicable in the urban extension areas of Delhi, comprising 95 villages. The entire area is divided into 109 sectors, with an average area of 250 to 350 hectares in each sector, which are expected to accommodate a population of 80,000 to 1 lakh.

        Other important decisions taken by the Authority include constitution of a board for reviewing the objections and suggestions received on the draft Master Plan for Delhi-2041. DDA is working towards getting the final approval for MPD-2041 by December.

        DDA also approved modification of the nomenclature for a plot earmarked for a sports complex in Dwarka’s Sector-19 to name it International Sports Complex. The area is expected to become an entertainment and tourist destination with real estate development like hotels, retail, convention centre, residential, etc. It was decided at the meeting that facilities would be available to public not only on the basis of membership but through pay-and-play services too.

        DDA also changed the land use from residential to transportation for a multi-level car parking facility at Idgah Road, which would help north corporation and DMRC to construct the facility, which is coming up as an integrated project with the proposed Nabi Karim interchange Metro station of Phase IV.

          Nitin Gadkari: Delhi-Mumbai Expressway to reduce travel time between two cities to 12 hours


          Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Thursday said the 1380-km eight-lane Delhi-Mumbai Expressway — passing through Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat — will reduce travel time between the cities to 12-12.5 hours.

          The minister was addressing the press in Lohatki, Sohna on Thursday after he reviewed the progress of a section of the Delhi-Mumbai expressway in Sohna. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Union Minister Rao Inderjit Singh were also present at the occasion.

          Calling it a matter of pride, Gadkari said the expressway will be the longest in India and connect urban centres of Delhi through Delhi-Faridabad-Sohna section of the corridor with a spur to Jewar Airport and Jawaharlal Nehru Port to Mumbai through a spur in Mumbai.

          — Nitin Gadkari (@nitin_gadkari) September 16, 2021
          “The expressway will have wayside amenities – resorts, restaurants, food courts, fuel stations, facilities for truckers, logistics parks – at six points in Haryana. We have also envisaged a helicopter ambulance service for accident victims and there will be a heliport, which will use drone services for business as well. I also want to build electric highways along the expressway,” said Gadkari.

          Developed at Rs 98,000 crore, the expressway is expected to be completed by March 2023. The eight-lane access-controlled expressway can be expanded to a 12-lane expressway depending on the volume of traffic in the future.

          The first phase from Delhi-Jaipur (Dausa)-Lalsot and Vadodara-Ankleshwar is expected to be open to traffic by March 2022. More than 160 km stretch of the expressway which passes through Haryana is being built at Rs 10,400 crore, the minister said.


          “This corridor will improve connectivity in Nuh and Palwal through multiple interchanges to connect the expressway with major highways like KMP and DND Sohna. To address the serious problem of air pollution and traffic congestion in Delhi-NCR, the ministry is undertaking 15 projects worth Rs 53,000 crore, of which 14 projects have been initiated. This expressway will lead to a reduction of 27 per cent in vehicular pollution in Delhi,” he said.

          He said that the soon to be opened Delhi-Meerut Expressway will reduce commute time between Delhi and Meerut to 40 minutes. “There was an issue with an overbridge, which has now been resolved. I will inaugurate it next month,” he said.

          Stressing the importance of roads in a country, Gadkari quoted former US President John F Kennedy, “American roads are not good because America is rich, but America is rich because American roads are good. Kennedy said this. I have this saying written in my office. Roads lead to prosperity and development,” he said.

          He added that that the ministry was exploring options to adopt new technologies for the construction of roads and cut down the use of cement and steel. “We are exploring options such as the use of steel fibre, which is used abroad,” he said.

          Gadkari said that the ministry had paid 1.5 times more than the market price to farmers for land acquisition, in a liberal approach. “I appeal to farmers to not sell their land to builders and developers, who usually profit when prices increase after road construction. They (farmers) will get more money if they develop the land,” he said.

          Responding to a question about toll taxes making travel costly on national highways, Gadkari said, “If you want good services, you have to pay for it. If one wants to conduct a programme in an air-conditioned hall, one will have to pay the rent (kiraya). Otherwise, a wedding can be conducted in a field (maidan) for free as well.”

          Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, said, “With these road stretches being built, there will be economic prosperity in the region (Palwal, Nuh and Gurgaon) and bring employment opportunities, services and give a fillip to industry and growth. At least 73 villages in this region will benefit from this stretch. ”

          Khattar mentioned they had submitted a list of 18 points in South Haryana, where road projects needed to be built for better connectivity including underpasses at Bilaspur Chowk and Bawal Chowk on NH-48, an interchange point at Palwal-Aligarh national highway and eastern peripheral national highway and at Faridabad chowk.

              DDA to set up board of enquiry to consider objections, suggestions on Delhi master plan


              The LG, among other decisions, directed constitution of a board of enquiry, for hearing and considering objections and suggestions offered by the public on the draft Master Plan of Delhi 2041, officials said.

              NEW DELHI: Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Tuesday directed constitution of a board of enquiry for hearing and considering objections and suggestions of the public on the draft Master Plan of Delhi 2041. The last date to send objections and suggestions was August 23.

              The decision was taken during the meeting of the DDA authority, chaired by Baijal. He is also the chairman of the urban body.

              The LG, among other decisions, directed constitution of a board of enquiry, for hearing and considering objections and suggestions offered by the public on the draft Master Plan of Delhi 2041, officials said.

              The board will be headed by DDA vice chairman Anurag Jain, they said, adding that after this the draft will be sent to the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for final notification.

              From creating a ''24-hour city'' with night-time economy, extensive transport infrastructure, affordable housing for all and healthy environment to checking unauthorised colonies and pollution - these are part of the guiding principles the DDA has laid out for the Master Plan of Delhi 2041.

              The vision document largely covers the policies of environment, economy, mobility, heritage, culture and public spaces, among others.

              The Delhi Development Authority had published the public notice for inviting objections, suggestions with respect to the draft MPD-2041 on June 9 for a period of 45 days. The central government then had extended the period for filing objections, suggestions by 30 days, to August 23.

              After the publication of the draft MPD 2041, several urban planning experts and activists had requested to extend the date in view of the Covid pandemic and the voluminous nature of the vision document.

              The person submitting objections or suggestions was to give his or her name, address and telephone or other contact details, the DDA had earlier said.

              Highlighting the importance of safety of women in a rapidly urbanising world, a collective of civil society organisation and public policy experts on July 15 had urged the DDA to add a separate chapter on gender-related issues in the draft MPD 2041.

              The process of preparation of the Master Plan of Delhi 2041 was initiated in 2017, and it remained on track in spite of the lockdown and other restrictions on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

              The first Master Plan for Delhi was promulgated in 1962 under the Delhi Development Act of 1957, followed by the Master Plans of 2001 and 2021, each of which is an extensive modification of the respective previous plan document.

              "These plans were prepared for 20 years' perspective periods and provided a holistic framework for planned development of Delhi.

              The MPD 2041 is a 'strategic' and 'enabling' framework to guide future growth of the city, built upon the lessons learnt from the implementation of the previous plans," the draft says.
