LUCKNOW/NOIDA: Putting to rest murmurs about the 'neglect' of Noida and Greater Noida under the new regime, UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav will on Tuesday give a turbo boost to development in the twin districts, launching projects worth Rs 3,337 crore.

The bounty includes two new affordable housing projects for Noida and Greater Noida, a state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant, two power generation units, a government inter college for girls, construction orders for a medical university promised last year and a 200-bed district hospital with a trauma centre.

The announcements possibly signal an end to the cycle of development and neglect in Noida/Greater Noida — depending on which party came to power in Lucknow. In 2004, former CM Mulayam Singh Yadav had dissolved the Gautam Budh Nagar district, formed in June 1997 by Mayawati, and stalled several projects. After the Samajwadi Party came to power in March 2012, it was believed that most of Mayawati's real estate and development projects in the area would be targeted by the new government.

Though one such land-grab scam, of illegal distribution and sale of farmhouses in Noida, is being investigated by the Lok Ayukta, Akhilesh has, so far, left untouched all existing projects that could affect consumers.

"The development plan includes projects which will improve connectivity and alleviate power and water problems, besides providing a host of other facilities," said Rama Raman, chairman and CEO of Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities.

On Tuesday, Akhilesh will also launch projects to set up power sub-stations in several sectors, build underpasses at some of the busiest intersections and construct a multi-level parking space capable of accommodating 3,000 cars in Sector 18, Noida. The government will also construct a destitute home in Noida in addition to living facilities for young girls between age 7 and 17.

Distributing his development promises between Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway Authorities, Akhilesh will inaugurate a 35 mld sewage treatment plant (STP) at Sector 123, Noida, that will make it the first Indian city with a capacity to treat all sewage it produces. To be built on recommendations of IIT Roorkee scientists, the STP will service 28 sectors of Noida and will also meet ISO 14001:2004 standards of environmental pollution control, a government release said.

To meet the growing demand for housing, the government has approved a residential project for the Greater Noida Authority that will build 7,200 'affordable' flats in ground-plus-three format in Sector 10. Each flat will be built over 29.76 square metres. Akhilesh will also lay the foundation stone of 4,425 affordable homes in Sector 18 of Greater Noida, each priced at Rs 7.75 lakh.

Four-laned underpasses have been proposed at sectors 32, 35, 39 and 51, and will be built parallel to the Metro line. The government will also build a seven-metre clover leaf on the proposed four-lane underpass on Master Plan road number 3 in sectors 94 and 95 for traffic travelling from Delhi to Sector 94 of Noida.

The proposed multi-level car parking at Noida's Sector 18, with a capacity to accommodate 3,085 cars, will be monitored by CCTV cameras and will have a battery-operated shuttle service to ferry car owners to nearby areas.

Akhilesh will also lay the foundation stone for a 200-bed district hospital in Sector 39, where "quality healthcare" would be provided at minimal cost. The hospital will have residential facilities for doctors and support staff, and will be equipped with a trauma unit, pathology lab, radiological units, intensive care and a special facility of a 100-bed reservation for women.

To address the acute power shortage in the districts, the government has decided to set up two gas-insulated power sub-stations of 400 kv capacity each in Sectors 123 and 148 of Noida. Besides, a 33 kv sub-station will be built by the Yamuna Expressway Authority at Sector 17 A, Greater Noida.

Akhilesh will lay the foundation stone for a Nari Niketan building in Sector 34 which will rehabilitate abandoned children, women, orphans and destitutes. The government has also cleared a proposal for constructing a five-storey building that will provide living quarters to 200 girls aged 7 to 17, apart from facilities for counselling, primary classes and short-term courses in handicraft and vocational training.

In other projects, an inter college for girls will come up at Hoshiyarpur village in Noida's Sector 51 and construction will begin on a medical university at Greater Noida. To be built on 56.5-acre land, the university will accommodate 100 students and provide courses such as MBBS, MD, MS, DM and MH. The government proposes to start the academic session by August 2013.

Akhilesh will on Tuesday inaugurate the OPD facility of a 500-bed multi-specialty hospital attached to the medical university.

  • Work on four Noida Metro projects likely to begin in May

    Work on all the four Metro projects in Gautam Budh Nagar district, which had been held up for the past several months due to various reasons, is likely to begin by May this year.
    According to sources, Noida authority officials are working hard to complete all the paper works related to the proposed Metro links — a 3.9-km route between Kalindi Kunj and Botanical Garden, the 6.7-km City Centre-Sector 62 link, 30-km City Centre-Bodaki (Greater Noida) line and 7-km Sector 71-Greater Noida West link — by the end of April.
    Authority officials said Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav will inaugurate infrastructure projects worth R10,000 crore, which include the proposed Metro links and three bridges over the Yamuna, in the first week of May.
    “Before the inauguration in May, the Noida authority will complete formalities of memorandum of understanding (MoU) to be signed with DMRC for the Kalindi Kunj-Botanical Garden link. We have sent the file to the urban development ministry for approval,” said a senior authority official.
    The detailed project report (DPR) of the City Center-Sector 62 route has already been approved by the Noida authority. “An MoU will be signed soon. The authority is also likely to approve DPR of two proposed routes — City Center-Greater Noida’s Bodaki and Sector 71-Greater Noida West,” said the official.
    Officials said that the CM would inaugurate three proposed bridges across the Yamuna — one near Okhla Barrage and one each in sectors 150 and 168 to connect the city with Faridabad.
