All about Noida master plan

New Okhla Industrial Development Area (NOIDA) is one of the fastest growing suburbs in India. Here are some highlights from the Noida Master Plan 2031

It was in 1976, when the government of Uttar Pradesh notified 36 villages of the ‘Yamuna-Hindon-Delhi Border Regulated Area’ as New Okhla Industrial Development Area (NOIDA) to facilitate planned development of urban centres around Delhi. The original idea was to create an industrial town for small and medium-sized units that could handle the growing population in the capital city. This was the reason that the Noida Authority came into existence – to oversee the development and to prepare the master plan of Noida that would serve as a guiding document for infrastructure planning. In this article we examine the key features of the Noida Master Plan 2031.

Initially, when Noida was created, the plan was to develop sites for about 10,000 small-scale industrial units, which could provide employment to over 40,000 industrial workers and create an integrated township for all workers employed here. The master plan was later revised, to cater to one million people. To keep up with the development spree in the region, the master plan is regularly updated, to factor-in the growing need for space, infrastructure and connectivity. Here are some of the key highlights of the Noida Master Plan and what to expect in the near future.
