Board irons out development bottlenecks
Jan 12, 2013, 01.41AM IST TNN

NOIDA: Several development projects were approved in the joint board meeting of the Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities on Friday. Even though the main focus remained on boosting connectivity and developing industrial clusters, the authorities even attempted to pacify agitating farmers by amending provisions related to land acquisition.

Noida Authority CEO Sanjeev Saran said rapid population growth has led to an urgent need to improve the transportation system. An additional 170 buses, including 20 semi low-floor buses and 50 feeder vehicles, will be started at the cost of Rs 40.5 crore. "The Authority will develop the city bus terminal in Sector 82 on 3.9 hectare with world-class infrastructure," he said.

Concerned over rampant accidents on Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, an Rs 15 crore Intelligent Transport System (ITS) will be installed to monitor and manage traffic flow.

To counter farmers' agitation, the board passed several amendments in the provisions to sort out abadi regularization, disbursement of developed land, enhanced compensation and inherited and non-inherited property issues.

"The land in Gautam Budh Nagar district was acquired in three phase in 1976, 1979 and 1997. Earlier, those farmers whose land was acquired in 1976 were eligible to get 5% abadi land, while those whose land was acquired between 1979 and 1997 were kept out of pool. The board has approved to grant abadi land to these farmers too," said Rajesh Prakash, administrative officer, Noida Authority.

"The minimum size of developed plots to be given to farmers whose land was acquired will be 40sq.mtr. The 5% developed plots will also be given to those farmers who were found eligible for plots below 40sq.mtr," Prakash added.

Around Rs 650 crore has already been disbursed towards enhanced compensation to farmers and the board has approved another Rs 450 crore. For village development work, the engineering department will not need approval from the land records department now.

The number of highrises in the city is expected to increase in the next two years, so there is a need of updated fire safety infrastructure. "The Authority will buy 72m hydraulic machines in case of fires in highrises," Saran said. A 1MW solar power plant will be developed on a 5 acre plot over the Sector 135-152 irrigation drain mainly for streetlights.

    the news article mentioned 35000 jobs .. that's quite a size, looks rather oversized for a singlecompany at a location like Noida, that might give a bit of boost to the rental market as Infy thrives on freshers,which sure won't buy soon, but rather rent out. Or maybe Infy is investing in land, as they have got a huge cashpile .. or is it the Sikka effect .. waqt hi batayega ..

  • Authority get land from famers @850/sqm and then sell it to 50,000/sqm.

    And then it has been proved in Court that land acquisition is void and should pay 64% more so in this situation they are planning to shift that burden to general public.


    God knows where the difference between 50,000 and 850 goes.
    They just want to construct an road again and again to get their commission.

  • Noida, Gr Noida may become India’s first smart cities
    Purusharth Aradhak,TNN | Aug 15, 2014, 05.32 AM IST



    NOIDA: The twin cities in UP may become India's first smart cities, if everything goes as per plan. This is according to Noida and Greater Noida Authorities chairman Rama Raman.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government may have just announced the development of 100 new smart cities in its first budget last month, but Raman told employees of the Noida Authority on Thursday that 70% of the parameters have already been achieved by Noida and Greater Noida. He also asked the employees to cooperate with him to help meet the twin cities rest of the parameters.

    "From Independence Day, the Noida Authority is offering residents a citizens' portal. It is a big move towards making Noida as smart city of the country. Now Noida will get Ganga water supply. But, a lot still needs to be done in offering quality public transport facility and in terms of metro line expansion. We are also working on the concept of recycling the garbage of the city," Raman told TOI.

    "Noida is only city in the country that has laid down sewage and drainage network in its 82 villages. The twin cities also has wide roads, hospitals, parks, Formula One track and metro connectivity," he said.

    Raman said that the Authority's idea "is to become eligible for the central government's fund earmarked for a smart city".

    "These two cities deserve a smart city fund because we have already developed 70% of the facilities in past three decades. If we manage to get Rs 1,000 crore from the Centre, then we will invest that money into building even better infrastructure, including metro," he added.
