The millennium city just got a lot bigger. It will now stretch all the way to, and include, Manesar.

What started off as a suburb across Delhi's southern borders has become a city in itself, with the 1971 population of 57,000 now touching 22 lakh and set to increase to 37 lakh by 2021.

Gurgaon's new Master Plan, notified on February 5 (a gazetted copy of which is with TOI), makes it clear that the city's construction boom is only likely to become more frenetic.

With the private-government partnership development model for the residential sector of 'New Gurgaon', private players will have a large role to play as Gurgaon grows even more rapidly than at present.

Besides a lion's share in the residential sector, private players will be permitted to develop 50% of area marked for commercial sectors.

The development plan is for a total of 37,069 hectares against the 9,881-hectares target of the 2001 plan. This includes special economic zones of 4,570 hectares and existing towns and villages in the region.

While the plan looks to focus on residential development - read more and more highrises - it also earmarks 5,441 hectares for industrial and commercial development. The inclusion of Manesar and its industrial environs is an indication of this.

There is news for Gurgaon residents who have begun to despair of connectivity with Delhi. Two 90-metre-wide link roads have been planned.

One is from Vasant Kunj to Mehrauli Road and Gurgaon, the other between Andheria Mor and Faridabad road through Mandi and Gwal Pahari.

Another 150-metre-wide link road has been proposed from Dwarka to Palam Vihar. An additional corridor along the 150-metre northern link to Delhi extending from Dwarka has been proposed in the final development plan 2021 while a similar MRTS will come up along Mehrauli road up to the proposed inter state bus terminal at Kherki Dhaula.

This will be extended to Manesar. A 150-metre road would be constructed along the NH 8, or Delhi-Jaipur highway, which will ensure that traffic entering Gurgaon flows smoothly.

This is essential if traffic which gets off the highway and moves in and out of Udyog Vihar and Cybergreens is not to be choked.

To cater to a projected population of 37 lakh, 14,930 hectares have been marked for residential purposes. Some 8,000 hectares have already been developed by Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and private developers and this is expected to accommodate some 20 lakh people. The additional 6,930 hectares would accommodate 15 lakh people by 2021.

The city's future would seem to be set in glass and concrete as is already visible in the case of New Gurgaon. There will be an explosion of malls and corporate parks.

"The new commercial areas will be in the form of big malls and corporate commercial complexes. In addition, commercial belts with the width of 200 metres have also been provided along the selected roads to cater to the needs of the surrounding areas,"states the gazette notification.

  • Gurgaon the new trade fair venue?

    You have heard it right. The India International Trade Fair could move to Gurgaon if the commerce ministry and the Haryana government are to be believed. The Exhibition-cum Convention Centre (ECC) at Panchgaon Chowk, NH-8, could be the venue for the biggest trade show of Asia in 2014 (below: an artists impression of the centre).

    To come up at the cost of Rs 2,500 crore, the consortium of Jurong-KPMG- DTZ - ESRI, the consultants hired for a pre-feasibility study, in their report submitted two weeks ago, asserted that shifting of the entire business of Pragati Maidan to this new facility will contribute a lot to its success.

    The consultants had also suggested creation of a facility for over an area of 250 acres, one of the three early bird projects of Delhi. The consultants have been further advised to submit a report on the Institutional Framework/Ownership Model for the project involving the government of India and government of Haryana.

    The International Trade Promotion Organization (ITPO) had also identified the area for creation of such a facility for the purpose of holding IITF. The DMIC consultants had suggested eight different locations for the project and zeroed in on the Panchgaon Chowk site in Gurgaon, at the junction of National Highway-8 and KMP Expressway, as the most suitable for the ECC project, Rajiv Arora, the managing director of HSIIDC, said while confirming the development.

    The plan will be implemented in two phases Phase-I, over 150 acres, and Phase-II, over the remaining 100 acres. The facilities to be created at the Exhibition-cum-Convention Centre include an exhibition space, convention centre for 6,000 people, retail arcade and hotels.

    The government is also establishing a dedicated freight corridor between Delhi and Mumbai, with terminals at Dadri in the National Capital Region of Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru Port near Mumbai. The corridor, covering a length of around 1483 kilometres, will pass through Uttar Pradesh, National Capital Territory of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra.

    In order to tap the immense opportunities likely to be thrown open by the corridor, a band of 150 to 200 kilometres around its sides is being developed as the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). The vision for the development of DMIC is to create base in this band with globally competitive environment and state-of-the-art infrastructure to activate regional commerce and enhance foreign investments.

    The state government has designated HSIIDC as the nodal agency for the DMIC projects in the state.

  • DEMAND ASSESSMENT AND ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN


    Anybody has any idea on exact location near panchgaon chowk for this project. I can see by the reports that the location has been finalized now and tender has been floated for architectural design.

    I think progress on such projects will provide really good support on gurgaon pricing. Your views are welcome

  • There are mainly four big projects which we are expecting in 2011, If any of three out of four will start then I think Gurgaon will be out of reach for small investors like me.

    1. KMP Expressway
    2. Dwarka expressway work starting
    3. ECC work starting at panchgaon Chowk
    4. Reliance SEZ work starting on ground

  • It is not only reliance now, IL&FC is also a 45% partner in the project which is very positive thing for this project.

    Moreover its a Mukesh Ambani's project where I doubt to be a flop show. Lets hope for the best

    Considering the land acquisition problems in India with recent issues in UP....

    What will be the future for such a huge project involving 6-7 states....what if even a single state drops out due to some reasons.....by will or by force...We India even not able to control a single village (shabari) - how to control several states together!!!!

    Are there any investment opportunity available for individuals at this stage?

    I think such projects are headed by Central Govt with NHAI (for roads) hence role of state govt. become minimal. Off course if state govt. is of opposition party then things become dynamic and politically motivated.

  • DHBVN aims to cut down Gurgaon outages

    DHBVN is developing a streamlined mechanism for diagnosing and fixing mechanical bugs in its supply network, which is likely to bring down the duration of hardware-related outages in Gurgaon. According to the plan, which gets a mention in the discom's new annual revenue requirement report, all transformers and supply line poles in every operational circle will be linked up to a central control system.

    "All these points will be fitted with location-identifying sensors, so that if anything goes wrong, the engineers get to know the exact point of malfunction," said an official. Hardware failures have occurred with disturbing regularity in the past few years in Haryana, once bringing a power generation unit in the Yamuna Nagar plant to a complete halt for several months.

    The transformers and poles will further be connected to the local substation, which in turn will be hooked up with the central servers of the department. This project has been listed under the grand upgrade plan made by the power utilities in Haryana, worth around Rs 2,500 crore. "Besides, we have planned to increase the supply," an official said.

  • Power complaint centres being revived

    The city will soon have the good old complaint centres with a wider scope. The Haryana Power Distribution Utilities has created a three-tier system for getting complaints registered regarding interruptions in power supply and commercial issues.

    A spokesman of the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) said on Monday that the Utilities has revived the old mechanism of complaint centres by making them wider and comprehensive.

    The officials claim that under this new mechanism no power complaints can be registered.

    "Under this mechanism, totally about 1,650 old complaint centres in villages and towns have been revived. Bijli Suvidha Kendras and control rooms have also been established at the circle and divisional level to ensure timely redress of the complaints and to attend/register complaints of consumers telephonically and physically during day and night. All the 33kV substations now have complaint centres where complaints can be registered telephonically or in person," said the spokesperson.

    He said that telephone numbers of the call centre, control rooms, Bijli Suvidha Kendras, complaint centres, names of officer on night duty, staff on duty and junior engineers and officers have been displayed on notice boards and walls of all offices and at places used by the community for the convenience of the consumers.

    The officials have been directed to write in the registers the time of registration and redress of the complaints. Also, under this system of grievance redress, the employees are bound to redress the grievances within the stipulated time.

    "After the specified time, the grievance would automatically escalate to the senior officer. Each grievance will have a fixed number of days in which it needs to be redressed failing which the grievance will escalate to the immediate senior of the officer. The next officer will also get the predefined number of days for redress of the grievance failing which the grievance would go up the hierarchy. Eventually, the grievance would reach the inbox of the highest officer in the hierarchy. The auto escalation will be as follows: AGM to DGM to GM to CGM to director to MD," explained the official.

    Also, the facility of computer-based "Consumer Grievance Redress System" (CGRS) has been extended to the entire state. Through this system, though all types of complaints can be registered, the system is more useful for complaints mainly regarding commercial issues, billing, metering, connections, expansion of system, maintenance of power distribution system, etc.
