GHAZIABAD: The Ghaziabad Development Authority will shortly begin a process to revise the existing master plan 2021. The proposal will be placed in GDA’s board meeting scheduled for September 27 before its initiation.
“The GDA Master Plan 2021 will go for revision and the process will be initiated after the proposal gets a go ahead in the board meeting that will be held in the last week of this month,” said Istiaq Ahmed, chief architect and town planner, GDA. “The process has to start early as it is time taking and cumbersome, as it involves number of surveys which is finally incorporated in the master plan,” he added.
Making of a new master plan involves taking into consideration the population projection which is followed by a satellite survey of the city that involves government of India. What follows next is a series of surveys including road and transport survey, land use survey, socio-economic survey and industrial establishment survey.
“There are certain criteria laid down while preparing master plan and we ensure 40% of the area is allotted to housing projects, between 20 to 25% for roads and transport and about 20% for the green belt,” said Ahmed. “The revision made in the existing master plan will be incorporated when the new master plan, that will be Master Plan 2041, will be made.”
