The Haryana government is planning a new city near Gurgaon in the National Capital Region to boost the potential of the region. This new city which will be developed in a public-private partnership (PPP) model will be spread across at least 50,000 hectares and is expected to be larger than Chandigarh. However, the proposed city will be smaller than Gurgaon which is spread across 73,000 hectares.
It is expected that the construction of 136 km long Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway on the western periphery of the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi and 135 km long Eastern Peripheral Expressway by NHAI will become a vital transportation infrastructure for the region. The introduction of express connectivity within the region is expected to further accelerate the ongoing rapid urbanization in the region and hence it is necessary to undertake planned development in the region. Keeping in view the potential growth in this region the state government has mooted the idea of developing a world class city. The objective here is to create environment-friendly habitats that will provide world-class, yet a locally relevant living style through a planning and design process that is participatory and meets the felt needs of citizens, consistent with their respective socio-economic needs.
Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) will soon finalise a consultant for the project who will prepare the master plan for this new city. All efforts will be made to ensure that the new city will be a world-class city with facilities like education and health.
