Greater Noida: After getting the approval for Yamuna Expressway Master Plan 2031 Phase-I by NCR Planning Board, the Greater Noida authority is striving hard to give final touch to Phase-II of Master Plan 2031.

By January, 2013, the Master Plan for Agra to Jewar will be prepared and it will be sent to government for approval.

In Phase-II Master Plan, the industrial hub will be set up along the Expressway. Bangalore-based company has been tasked to prepare the Master Plan.

Townships have also been planned on both sides of the Yamuna Expressway from Jewar to Agra in the proposed Master Plan 2031.

The population of the city is likely to 35 million by 2031 in Phase-II. In this Master Plan, 2,10,465 hectares of land has to be acquired. Wherein, the land acquisition of 105 villages of Aligarh, 420 of Mahamaya Nagar, 431 in Mathura and 6 villages of Agra need to be done.

The Phase-II includes more than double the area of Phase-I in the Master Plan 2031. In Phase-II, 27 percent of land has been reserved for green belt.

The company representatives, who prepared the Master Plan, have appeared twice before the Authority officials.

The Authority is trying to prepare Phase-II Master Plan by January, 2013. And with the completion of Master Plan the authority will begin the process of land acquisition to develop the city.

The Phase-II Master Plan doesn’t require the approval of NCR Planning Board as Jewar to Agra is not under the NCR region.
