In order to fast-track the work of much-awaited Global City project in the city, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has sought some revisions in the Gurugram-Manesar Urban Complex Plan 2031. The 1,000-acre Global city is poised to serve as an important node to Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), says an official.
A total of three revisions have been planned by the authority, of which two are to facilitate the development of the project, while the third one is for changing the land use of 161 acres in Manesar. According to the proposal, the authority has sought re-designation of the Global City project area as a special zone with 300% floor area ratio, along with permission for mixed land use in sectors such as 36, 37B and 38B, which were earlier earmarked as industrial ones.
Giving more information on the same, Dinesh Singh Chauhan, chief town planner, GMDA said, “The area allocated for the metro depot is marked as open space in the final development plan and the zoning conditions for open space do not allow a depot. Hence, we have interchanged this land with another land parcel of the same size,”
He further said that as per the proposed revision in the development plan, the transport and communication zone will now be at the place of open space and vice-versa.
The Haryana Government has launched the Global City Project as a Financial/ Business Center which would thrive on world class infrastructure such as integrating water, power, and connectivity, Integration of IT services in managing various public utilities of the area etc. This project will be developed jointly by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC).
The project would also include festive and leisure components, including an exhibition and convention centre, high-value innovation and knowledge industries, central business district and townships etc.
