    Dwarka-Iffco Chowk project gets on track after Haryana govt’s nod
    Isha Sahni, Hindustan Times, Gurgaon | Updated: Jul 19, 2016 01:52 IST

    After a delay of four years, the Haryana government approved the extension of the Delhi Metro from Sector 21, Dwarka to Iffco Chowk in Gurgaon on Monday.

    Prior to this decision, three project reports on the Dwarka-Iffco Chowk link were junked by successive governments as there was no clarity on alignment of the route. The high cost of constructing the Metro line proved an impediment for the project.

    On Monday, however, a review meeting of the Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation chaired by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar cleared the proposal to build the 12.6-km Metro route which will connect Dwarka to Gurgaon.

    The proposed alignment will start from Dwarka Sector 21, pass through Sector 111 in Gurgaon, move across the Dwarka Expressway, and pass through Palam Vihar, Sector 23, 22, Sector 18 Udyog Vihar and finally reach Iffco Chowk.

    The cost of the project and the timeframe for its completion weren’t, however, clarified.

    “The chief minister has accorded approval for the extension of Delhi Metro from Sector 21 in Dwarka to IFFCO Chowk in Gurgaon. The Haryana government has also authorised the Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) to review the agreements made in the past with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation,” said a statement issued by the state government.

    Sources said that two alignments were considered by the government one which passed through Kapashera and reached Udyog Vihar and was around 14-km long. The second, which has been approved, is 12.6-km long and passes through Bijwasan and reaches Iffco Chowk via heavily populated areas of Old Gurgaon.

    Gurgaon MLA Umesh Agarwal, who has been pushing for greater Metro connectivity said the Dwarka-Gurgaon link will help commuters and reduce congestion on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway. “This project will greatly help the people of Delhi and Gurgaon,” he said.

    Meanwhile, the Haryana government hinted it might build the 3.4 kilometre stretch in Delhi itself, and prefer to amend the revenue sharing agreement with Delhi government.

    The government, taking note of poor connectivity, said HMRTC could work on plans to improve the network.

    “The Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation could explore possibilities for increasing connectivity in Gurgaon,” said the official statement.
    Earlier in March this year, the Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) had asked the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to draft a fresh feasibility report for the Gurgaon-Dwarka Metro link.

        Conflicting news below.. does anyone know what would be the final alignment

        Dwarka-Iffco Metro line in survey loop

        Gurgaon: A long-pending meeting on the Dwarka-Iffco Chowk Metro line took place on Monday but the most crucial decisions were not taken. The long-delayed Metro project to link Dwarka to Gurgaon is likely to get pushed back further as the Haryana government has asked its agency, HMRTC, to rework the detailed project report, thereby putting off the finalisation of the alignment.
        Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar chaired the long-awaited meeting to review the Metro route to link Dwarka Sector 21 with Iffco Chowk on Monday. The meeting was pending for almost a year. However, the stalemate continues as no major decisions were taken in the meeting, which was attended by DMRC and Rapid Metro authorities as well.
        HMRTC (Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) has been authorised by the government to review the agreements made in the past with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and explore possibilities for increasing Metro connectivity in Gurgaon. The CM gave a formal approval to the extension of Delhi Metro from Dwarka to Iffco Chowk at the meeting.
        It was also decided in the meeting to amend the agreements made earlier with the Delhi government regarding revenue collection in case the 3.4-km stretch, of the total 12.63-km route, falling in Delhi gets completed by Haryana at its own level.
        According to sources, the meeting focused mainly on the revenue sharing and funding of the project. "According to the initial agreement, the Haryana government was to fund 80% of the project whereas it had to share 50% of the revenue with DMRC and the central government," a senior official said.
        Anil Kumar, principal secretary of the urban local bodies department, said the route between Dwarka and Iffco Chowk has not been finalised yet. "There are many factors, such as ridership, that will have to be considered before finalising the route. The DMRC and HMRTC will submit their proposals, based on which the final decision will be taken by the Haryana government," he said.While the government is yet to make up its mind on what the final route could be, sources told TOI that it would pass through sectors 22 and 23 before reaching Iffco Chowk. "The existing station in Dwarka is underground and therefore the first few kilometres of the proposed route will also be underground, which will increase the construction cost substantially. There is also a thickly populated village that falls in the proposed route and we will have to go underground here. The proposed alignment will pass through sectors 22 and 23 before reaching Iffco Chowk," said the source. Gurgaon MLA Umesh Aggwarwal too claimed that this alignment is likely to be finalised soon.

            It's still not final.
            There are multiple agencies involved and ofcourse another round of land acquisition issues so another five years before it can see light of the day.

              Instantaneous forecast! Can we bargain please, lets say 3.5 years? no, OK then at least come down to 4 years!

              For God sake how can one place '5 years' as timeline? speculation! reverse speculation, sixth sense, what is it. Govt schemes of public interest don't come up overnight, we all know. Or are you wishing that it shouldn't see light of the day before 5 years!

              Not clear about this familiar rant of yours! what are you wanting us to do?
              (Don't ask me to go break banker-builder-babu-politician nexus, like you broke it in neharpar.
              We are just mortals please!)

              Cheers

                Done
                Read the news again the official said the route is not final yet and thus by going by the land acquisition history it is normal that it's going to take double time.
                So I would say it was your instantaneous response that hey here comes a post from Rohit I am going to write against it.

                Read the news again dude

                    Metro came to gurgaon six years back and rapid metro also already exists now, successfully. So current proposal is just extension of metro , it is not something which has to be done from scratch. If metro guys also would be having attitude like that of Mr Warren, Metro would not have ever been operational either in Delhi or Gurgaon even till today. But for goodness to all of us, they are different people with different positive mind set. But yes these are huge operational projects so they take time. But get delivered for sure, once work starts.

                    Btw, metro route is created either overhead or underground. So where does land acquisition comes into picture only god knows !!!

                      Great enjoying the vella time

                      Now have you thought why the news pours only in these months ? last year it the news of high court guidelines and this year it is regarding metro (even whose route is not final which means putting the cart before the horse.
                      The answer is simple The builder banker lobby is so strong that they can twist anything in favor of them.

                      Don't brush is off let me give you an example.

                      Did you know that there is a small change in the lending practices of the banks ? what is that ?

                      Banks have stopped taking over the resale loans - which means if you have a loan on your flat and you want to sell it , and in order to do so the existing loan has to be closed or takenover now here is the fun - since banks have stopped taking over the existing loan and the other person does not have money from own funding to pay you to close the loan means he too is dependent upon the finance from banks - He Simply Cannot BUY A Resale Property. which means he has to go to builder and buy it from the builder.

                      This small change in lending practices has changed what ?

                      No more resale even at corrected rates
                      The builders will get mugras at the present higher rates.

                      enjoy the nexus of builder bankers babu and ofcours brokers
