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.

    Hi
    "Noida land rates are hiked by 18.4 per cent"- what does this statement mean? Does it impact circle rates? Bcoz today only I have seen in the news that Noida's circle rate has been increased by 18.4%.

  • Seems they are serious in getting this done by June 2017. News is interesting, few day back i was reading statement from DMRC head that it take anywhere 18-24 months to get coaches after order.

    The NMRC also approved several other features, including coach design and fare collection system. "The coaches would be state-of-the art and laced with modern technology. A model of the coach has been readied and approved and tenders will be initiated by the end of this month," said G P Singh, NMRC's executive director.

  • Now, circle rates set to rise in Noida
    Purusharth Aradhak,TNN | Feb 6, 2015, 01.31 AM IST


    NOIDA: Buying property in Noida and Greater Noida is likely to become costlier, after UP stamp and registry department increases circle rates by an expected 17-20%. With allotment rates already raised, circle rates are expected to follow, said UP stamp and registration department officials.

    The assistant inspector general (AIG) of the department, S K Singh, added the department will seek a 17-20% hike, though he added it is yet to ascertain if the hike will happen in the coming week or from the new financial year, starting April 1.

    "Circle rates are connected to Authority allotment rates. On Wednesday, Noida Authority passed hiked allotment rates. Through media reports, we've come know the hikes were to take effect immediately, though we're yet to receive any communication from the Authority. Based on the communique, circle rates will be raised within a week or from April 1," said Singh, adding this mid-term hike will not affect the scheduled revision of circle rates that takes place in August every year.

    "Gautam Budh Nagar DM has been transferred to Aligarh. We will discuss the matter with the new DM. We hope to receive the document on raised allotment rates from Noida Authority in a couple of days," he said.

    In August 2014, residential circle rates were raised by 10-17%. While commercial circle rates were raised by 2% (except in sectors 18 and 38A, which saw a 17% hike), institutional circle rates rose by 10%. There are five types of residential sectors in Noida. From August 1, plot rates for these will range between Rs 35,000 and Rs 86,000 per sq m.

    There was mixed reaction from real estate players though. "The move is welcome. We're happy as flat rates have not been hiked, and service-based charges have been scrapped," said Amit Gupta, Assocham member and MD of Orris.

    Others differed. "We should have continued charging apartment circle rates based on services provided,Moreover, commercial rates are unrealistic and higher than market rates. Hikes in both allotment and circle rates mean property across GB Nagar will cost more, but this is good for the region's development," said S S Bhasin of Bhasin group.

  • This is not an update as such but a small discussion.

    I got stuck the other day coming from eway till Delhi - IP Extension where I live now. Meant crossing Noida periphery, beside the Mayawati Memorial, 15A, Arched exit etc

    I noticed there are 4 real pain points, 1 in Noida and other 3 are in Delhi and since traffic is heavy - these should be sorted out:

    - Noida eWay moving from sidelines to main eWay. The exits are very poorly designed - from across JP there is one and the next 1 is near Amity. And there waz a lot of rush as all offices empty there. They hv got to make a few more exits. In my opinion it is an easy job

    - 2nd is all the way AFTER Noida border believe it or not. Noida has done a good job of keeping traffic moving. Even the 15A red lights etc have been cordoned off at this time. A very good development here could be the board I saw (yellow coloured - Just after ladyship flyover - they are making a 6 lane flyover from Mahamaya - direct to chilla. Some 5.7 kms long

    Now that will be awesome if they pull it off

    Coming back to the point - the bottleneck are the red lights just after the border to go to east-end apartments and others. This is a difficult nut to crack.

    The third point is the useless police checkpost with cops looking anywhere except inside the cars - does all this really solve any purpose.

    The 4th point is then the place where they are making the new metro pillar which will go over the existing line. This should be temporary

    The final choke point is the Akshardham metro station. Just pure mismanagement here - cars/buses park in the middle of the road with impunity while a PCR is parked permanently even.

    This is just for the stretch that I took. I know there are 100-200 more such chokepoints that one hopes the officials are looking at

  • You are absolutely right - this idea was first approved in 2012 - I was doing a search

    http://m.hindustantimes.com/india-news/delhi-noida-link-to-become-signal-free/article1-955193.aspx

    And there has seen no movement so far. Will take a long time presumably

    But good planning atleast - they intended to sync it to Barapullah flyover phase III i.e. Noida eWay to AIIMS - virtually non-stop and phase IV i.e. Noida eWay to airport non-stop

    As they say - if wishes were horses, beggars would ride

  • Sec 150 to be NCR's greenest patch
    Purusharth Aradhak,TNN | Feb 9, 2015, 05.36 AM IST


    NOIDA: The Noida Authority plans to develop Sector 150 as an ideal sector, with 80% of the 600-acre area as green cover and construction limited to the remaining 20%. The sector, according to officials, will also have a 42-acre park, one of the biggest in the country, besides a low-density Sports City.

    "We plan to develop Sector 150 as an ideal sector. There are only two low-density sectors in Noida, 79 and 150. A 42-acre theme park is also being developed," said Noida Authority chairman and CEO Rama Raman.

    Emphasizing that the proposed Sports City will be a place for both professionals and youngsters, Raman said, "People have cut on physical activities nowdays. Space crunch is also to blame for this. Our idea is to offer best sports facilities to residents and promote a healthy living."

    "The Sports City will be spread over 300 acres and developed at a cost of Rs 2,300 crore. It will offer both recreational and residential facilities. A separate provision for a permissible ground coverage and floor area ratio has been proposed as per the Building Regulations Act of Noida and Master Plan 2031," said Raman.

    The project will also house a 9-hole golf course. The maximum permissible ground coverage of the entire land shall be 30%, of which 0.5% will be reserved for commercial use and 29.5% for group housing and residential use. The rest 70% will have sports open area and sports facilities including multi-purpose playfields, indoor sports hall, cricket academy, swimming centre, a hospital and internal roads and green spaces.

    The authority is also constructing a bridge to the cut travel time between Noida and Faridabad. It takes almost an hour to commute between the two cities, as one has go via Kalindi Kunj in south Delhi, where jams are usual in peak hours. The bridge will link Noida and to the various sectors in Greater Faridabad. The bridge will lead to Pari Chowk and will allow commuters going towards Noida and Greater Noida to access the expressway.

  • Smart system for e-way traffic from next week
    Vandana Keelor,TNN | Feb 8, 2015, 04.10 AM IST


    NOIDA: From February 10, the 25km-long Noida-Greater Noida expressway will have a fully functional intelligent traffic management system (ITMS) to monitor traffic and make movement safe for commuters.

    Uttar Pradesh chief secretary Alok Ranjan will launch the ITMS on Tuesday as well as flag off a fleet of 23 police patrol vehicles and inaugurate the senior police superintendent's office in Greater Noida, officials said on Saturday.

    Ahead of the launch of the ITMS, senior officials, including the chairman and CEO of Noida Authority, Rama Raman, visited the ITMS control room located on the Noida-Greater expressway on Saturday. "A review of the system's working was undertaken," said Sandeep Chandra, the technical head for the project.

    The hi-tech system is being rolled out by an Austrian company at a cost of nearly Rs 30 crore and is expected to bring down the accident rate on the high-speed Noida-Greater Noida expressway by about 25%. The hi-tech system will monitor traffic along the expressway and guide commuters to adapt speed to ensure smoother flow of traffic. It will also help to coordinate between police and emergency services.

    As part of the ITMS, the Noida traffic police will also launch an e-challan system to rein in traffic violators. "The traffic police has access to a vehicle data bank, for enabling the e-challan procedure. For this, we have installed 15 automatic number plate reader cameras along both sides of the expressway," Chandra said.

    Meanwhile, the 23-strong fleet of swanky SUVs is being handed over by the Noida Authority to the Gautam Budh Nagar police for adding teeth to police patrolling. With the launch, the city will soon be safer especially for women, the officials said.

The principal secretary said that the government has also decided to relax provisions under hi-tech township scheme.
    On protecting farmers interest, he said that land acquisition law has become more stringent and under it the farmers are to be made stakeholders. Regarding illegal colonies, he mentioned that a policy would be brought soon.
