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.

    As Dwarka Expressway is likely to be completed by the end of the year, work on the realty projects along this stretch, too, is going ahead in full steam. Puri Constructions has awarded the work contract of Emerald Bay, one the most premium projects on the expressway, to Simplex Infrastructures, a leading contractor of the country. RAVI KUMAR MANGALAM writes


    There is good news for investors and end users who bought property along the 18km-long, 150-metre-wide Dwarka Expressway in Gurgaon with the latest estimates saying that the project is likely to be completed by the end of this year.

    Dwarka Expressway has emerged as one of the most sought-after real estate destinations in the National Capital Region (NCR) and promises handsome returns to buyers owing to its proximity to the national capital and the IGI airport.

    Construction of 15km of the 18kmlong stretch is already complete and only 3km is left to be delivered—Huda has committed to settle all rehabilitation issues on this strip by February 15, according to a report.

    The expressway will bring Delhi and Gurgaon closer. It will also ease the traffic problems on NH-8 and connectivity will become smoother and faster.
    One of the principal developers on Dwarka Expressway is Puri Constructions Private Limited, which is coming up with Emerald Bay, a premium, luxurious residential project, in Sector 104.

    Maximum appreciation: Emerald Bay is one of the few group-housing projects that open up directly on to Dwarka Expressway. The project is about 7km from the IGI airport and in close proximity to the Delhi border. These factors, coupled with social infrastructure like the proposed Metro line along the expressway, schools, hospitals, and malls—all in the vicinity—will yield maximum appreciation for the property here. The road in front of the project is already built.
    Arjun Puri, director of Puri Constructions, says: “We launched Phase 1 of Emerald Bay at Rs 7,250 per sq ft and the entire Phase 1 was sold out on Day 1. To ensure that Emerald Bay is built on time and as per its quality benchmarks, we have given the construction contract to Simplex Infrastructures. They are using Mivan Form Work to deliver Emerald Bay on time—the piling is complete and work on the basement is in progress. Once the expressway is completed, property rates here will double. We will deliver the project in November, 2017.”
    Simplex is one of the top contractors of India with a turnover of over Rs 6,000 crore. They are the contractors for the Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore Metros. They are also the contractors of one of the longest flyovers in India in Hyderabad, the Ritz Carlton in Bangalore, and Lodha World One Tower in Mumbai (under construction), Puri said.
    Emerald Bay is over 17 acres and is designed by ARCOP; the landscape is by Site Concepts, Singapore. It comes with high-end specifications like VRV airconditioning, imported marble flooring, all units with three side open, modular kitchens, and a 25,000 sq ft clubhouse.
    Puri Constructions is one of the leading luxury property developers in the NCR focused on Gurgaon and Faridabad. Both its developments—Palm Springs in Gurgaon and Pranayam in Faridabad—have won Best Residential Property-2012-13 awards, Puri said.
    The company’s Diplomatic Greens project on Dwarka Expressway is at an advanced stage of development and is considered as one of the most prestigious projects of Dwarka Expressway.


    15kms of the total 18km stretch is now complete..about a month ago this was 14km..any idea which is this additional 1km that got completed?

    200 slum families face eviction but get no govt homes
    Yogesh Kumar & Vimal Chander Joshi,TNN | Feb 9, 2014, 02.20 AM IST
    GURGAON: A group of 200 families living in slum clusters in Sector 12A face eviction following a Punjab and Haryana high court order but the authorities are yet to come up with a plan to provide them alternative housing. The residents have sought the intervention of the Haryana Human Rights Commission (HRC) to ensure they have a roof over their heads.

    The HRC has written to Gurgaon deputy commissioner Shekhar Vidyarthi seeking his response. The hearing is on March 14.

    Slum-dwellers near Raj cinema hall on Old Delhi Road said since they have been asked to leave their present homes, they should be privded new living space under the government jousing scheme for economically backward sections of society.

    The HUDA notice asked them to vacate their houses by February 7, failing which an evacuation would be carried out using police force. The eviction order passed by the Punjab and Haryana high court, being executed by HUDA, was served in response to a petition filed by the market association of shopkeepers in the area.

    "We have been staying here for the past 30 years, much before the market sprang up. They want to throw us out in a few days," said Asha, a septuagenarian, whose son weaves carpets operating out of a small shanty. Asked about the Ashiana scheme, Vidyarthi said "that pertains to HUDA".

    HUDA administrator PC Meena said: "We will comply with the high court order in letter and spirit. Shopkeepers have been assured that the dwellers will be shifted and some of them (dwellers) have already been shifted."

    Following the court order last month, slum dwellers approached the state human rights commission to push the administration into action and accommodate them in the flats that have been complete for nearly three years. "Chief Minister, local MLA, area MP and HUDA administrator had organized a grand inauguration of these flats nearly three years ago. But till date, not a single homeless person has been accommodated," said Raman Sharma, an activist who filed the complaint in the state human rights commission on behalf of the slum dwellers.

    As per a rough estimate, there are nearly 50,000 such slum dwellers sparsely located in areas including Sector 12A, 56, 47, 46, 47-51 road, Basai, Kadipur, and near BSF camp. These people have been staying here for several years, some for as long as three decades."Though the administration is in its right to evacuate at any point of time but when the flats have been made to house the homeless people in the city and all surveys have been done, we have submitted our documents and the BPL cards, then why do they want to first evacuate us and make us homeless," asks Dharmender, who stays in his shanty in sector 12A with five children, sick father and old mother.

    As per what i am being told, nothing has been resolved, everything is at a standstill..........off course, all this could be motivated . It seems contrary to the sentiments in the News reports .

    .........totally confused, since, nothing concrete is coming from either side . Both sides look to be using indirect means & sources to leak out information or send feelers .

  • Mr Manoja ji,
    You seems to be very correct at this point of time, when HUDA has given the final date of 15th Feb 14 as concrete date by which the all the issues relating to litigants wd be resolved and it is already 9th.

    I happened to meet one of the affectees who stated that the resolution is not straight forward as many of the oustees are facing double whammy; they were first ousted from Kashmir by militants, got settled in New Palam Vihar without any State help and are now being uprooted again.

    Therefore, it really is a challenge for HUDA to balance its R&R policy with the needs of the Oustees as at present there seems no meeting ground. just giving positive news in the news papers is not going to solve the problem.


    You are correct, deadlines have no meaning for HUDA.

    I would like HUDA to give OUTSEES fair share including a land and cost of construction .

    HUDA should have stopped the colony from being developed .

    DEW or no DEW the FAIR compensation ( not profiteering or less ) should be awarded .

    Without the 3 KMS of DEW rates impact will be just 500 to 1000 PSF thanks to alternate connectivity , but, this 500 to 1000 PSF should not be at cost of anyone be becoming homeless.

    Boss, They can not give EWS flats to them.

    If the EWS flats will be given to them, then how come you will see the advertisements of EWS sale flats on property buy/ sell sites.

    The fact is the EWS flats are already sold to politicians, and heavy weight people including big property dealers and they are now on sale in the name of 1BHK, housing board flats, and in some good location cases as studio and service apartments.

    One question spur up in my mind, Is it legal for a non EWS person to buy an EWS flat?

  • In todays nbt & bhaskar , there is report that some meeting took place yesterday at npv, where mr. rana along with npv residents resolved to fight against land acquisition notice in and around npv for development works and wud also fight for the regilarisation of the npv colony and in this regard, they have filed application in high court. They also decided to organise mahapanchayat involving nearby villages to oppose land acquisition.

    On the one hand, huda is claiming to resolve npr issue by 15th feb and on the other hand, this news.
    Very confusing. indeed.
    Hope things clears soon for the betterment of all.
    One thing is clear that NPR will come but my only worry is the delay which is not in the interest of people at large (investors, end users & oustees). Moreover, the court's stand is also very confusing which tends to delay the matter further. Sometimes, they say that NPR is public purpose project and oustees should be rehabilated as per state policy and on other occasion, they say that the same is not approved by ncrpb and stays land acquisition and issuance of fresh licences.
