A lot of companies are advertising for property citing nearness to Dwarka expressway corridor.

Shilas, Indiabulls Centrum Park and Ramprastha Edge Tower come to mind.

Does anybody have news on when this construction will start and when it is likely to finish? Has the contract been awarded and to whom?
Date of completion and start of operation will be vital news for evaluating the pricing of flats sold in this corridor.

Last I heard was that a few houses in Palam Vihar were slated for demolition for this expressway in May June 09 or thereabouts.

    How many flats can builder make per Acre in Gurgaon?

    Size assume average 2000 sq foot.

    Normally the amount of flats in 11 acre group housing is around 500+ in various sizes. So Larger sizes should be around 40 per acre. No proof though, just an Idea.

    Gurucharan Das in his excellent book compares Gurgaon and Faridabad thus, which reflects the rise of one city and the near death of another . Need not say more than this :) , though gurgaon has many issue and areas of improvement comparing it faridabad :) :).


    Indians are baffled by the rise of their country. And for good reason. Consider this tale of two towns on the outskirts of Delhi — Gurgaon and Faridabad.

    In 1980, Faridabad had an active municipality, fertile agriculture, a direct railway line to Delhi, a host of well-known industries and state government determined to showcase it as the state of Haryana's future. Gurgaon, located in the same state, was at the time a sleepy village with rocky soil and pitiable agriculture. It had no local government, no railway link and no industry. Compared to pampered Faridabad, it was wilderness.

    Twenty-five years later, Gurgaon had become the symbol of a rising India and an engine of international growth. It now has dozens of shiny skyscrapers, 26 shopping malls, seven golf courses and countless luxury showrooms of global brands. It has 32 million square feet of commercial space and hosts the Indian offices of some of the world's largest corporations. Its economy is reflected in fabled apartment complexes with swimming pools, spas and saunas, which vie with the best-gated communities anywhere.

    Meanwhile, Faridabad remained sad and scraggly. It is groaning under a corrupt, self-important municipality. How did this happen? Gurgaon's erstwhile disadvantage — that it was more or less ignored by the rapacious state government — turned out to be an advantage. It meant less red tape and fewer bureaucrats who could block its development.

    A strong liberal state has independent regulators who are tough on corruption.

    Gurgaon flourished primarily because of its self-reliant citizens, who did not sit around and wait for the government. They dug wells to get water. They put in diesel generators to make up for the state electricity board's failure.

    They also employed security guards — rather than depend on the police. They used cell phones — instead of landlines of the state-run telephone company. And they used couriers rather than the post office.

    Some buildings even installed sewage treatment plants. Since teachers and doctors, although on the state's payroll, did not show up at government schools and health centers, the citizens opened cheap private schools and clinics. Crucially, they even did so in the slums, where fees were as low as Rs 200 ($4) per month.

    Modern India is in some ways Gurgaon writ large. When Indians witnessed the stupendous rise of the IT industry and of cities like Gurgaon, they began to ask, "Why do we need a government at all, with corrupt politicians and unresponsive bureaucrats?" And they came to say mockingly, "India grows at night when the government sleeps." To rise without the state is a brave thing. But is it wise or sustainable? Gurgaon would clearly be better off with a functioning public drainage system, reliable water and electricity, good schools, roads and parks, as well as a decent public transportation system.

  • similar comparisons can be done between pune and nagpur etc. Private players and citizens have played a big role but can you cite some examples where Govt did not mark some areas as IT ITES SEZ/STPs and growth came due to self relaint citizens mainly. Gurcharan das seems partially correct and has over emphasised in my view.
    Gurgaon had IT/ITES SEZ/STPs marked by Govt which Fbd never really had. and it was closer to airport. land was also cheaper (as it was not fertile). I personally think that private players and IT/ITES govt policies worked in GGNs favor. Citizens helped the cause only later. To think that Fbd residents didnt do anything seems incorrect...they faced govt apathy whereas ggn got the right boost at right time.
    Fbd was in fact better in many ways 20-25 yrs back and sply in manpower (business oriented n hardworking). Other govt/private player things like japanese city, disney, maruti etc also helped land prices and image of ggn. Fbd never had such things. Self relaint citizen seems exaggrated.
    I like both the places and am financially n culturally more closer to GGN.

  • Finally after a delay of nearly six months, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has approved an estimate of R63 crore for construction of railway overbridge on the Gurgaon-Rewari rail track.

    The track crosses the northern peripheral road (NPR), which is also called Dwarka Expressway, near Dhankot and Garhi Harsaru.

    Huda gave its nod to the big-ticket project a few days ago, as it was considered a big hurdle to the NPR which has been hit by several other infrastructure projects, delaying its completion twice in the last two years.

    The rail overbridge construction work will start soon after Huda awards the tender in the next three months, said a senior Huda official.

    “We will float a tender in a fortnight to prepare the detailed project report (DPR) and we aim to start construction work latest by June end,” said AK Maken, executive engineer HUDA. He said that the total length of the rail overbridge will be nearly 1km connecting Dhankot and Garhi Harsaru in Gurgaon aimed at giving safe way to the commuters.

    We dont need to speculate with this number. There is a formulae.
    Pls. multiply the total area with the FAR that the govt. has allowed. This is different for different places and different classes of buildings voz. residential, industrial, instituitonal, group housing etc..
    for eg. in Gurgaon for group housing the maximum possible has FAR is 1.75 (pls. cross check this, I may be slightly wrong), so for a 1 acre plot this is the calculation :
    1 acre = 43560 sq fts. x 1.75 (FAR) = 76230 sq ft. of built areas, so assuming the question of 2000 sq fts/flat you will have 38 flats in an acre (76230/2000)

    in Noida though this can be as high as 82 flats (of 2000 sqft.) with the FAR being 3.75. So if you see ATS one hamlet they have packed close to 1200 flats in 10 acres (with a mix of 1600, 2000 and 2950 units). Also not included in the FAR are basement parkings, stilits, and mezzanines. So the builders use this to extract more saleable areas and still sell all the non FAR areas too.

    Defender - you are bang on with the number 40 :) in gurgaon in this case.

  • Senior Moderators - I am neither as expereinced nor seasoned blogger as you guys are. So may be I am just asking the same question as thousands before have asked. IREF is by far the best available RE blog sapce available in India. Is it possible to have a section for graphics only (no long writings - dont get me wrong, the writings are a wonderful way to thrash things out, but they just deviate you from the topic).

    So if we have a section where members can only post an image with a caption. Sorted by areas and projects just as threads. So members abroad can see project completion statuses, road development and many other things in graphic. Things are so much more clear then. Someone hasn't simply said a picture speaks a thousand words. :)

    For. eg. Manoja has done a commendable job of doing and maintaining a thread for all Dway related press releases and other development without much clutter of discussions etc. This may allow us to get to things quick and easy.

    I dont know if this post should remain here or somewhere else, but I dont know how to write to Moderators or system admin separately, pls. feel free to move this around.

    Are you serious! I read only a couple of days back that HUDA has only 50Cr as provisions for this project from EDC collections and the rest will have to be FOUND. Have they found a solution to the rest of the 13 odd crores. Thats really good news, if true. I thought they will linger with this for the rest of the year and then sanction an additional 10 crores by when the project cost would have escalated ti 75 crores and then they will be looking for 15 crores more even after the 10 crores. The usual stuff, you see...:D

    Can someone pls. confirm that this press release is not older to the one saying they need 13 crores as viability gap funding.

  • Fbd Vs GGN - The mother of all differences - One city had the advantage of having a car company called maruti and the other didnt. that also shows which city had the blessings of one of the most influential families in the country. I also feel that if certain things had gone right, GGN would have got a swedish backed aviation industry in the early 1980's.
