The Noida Authority and the Delhi-based School of Planning & Architecture (SPA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to chalk out a master plan for the Dadri-Ghaziabad-Noida Investment Region (DGNIR). ‘Master Plan 2041’ is likely to be submitted within 10 months.
Noida Authority CEO Ritu Maheshwari said that DGNIR is a major infrastructure project in western Uttar Pradesh covering more than 80 villages in two districts, PTI reported. The two districts are Gautam Buddha Nagar and Bulandshahr.
According to an official statement, Maheshwari said, “Of these, 60 villages are in Bulandshahr, while 20 are in Gautam Buddh Nagar. This investment area, located between Khurja and Dadri, covers an area of 200 square kilometers, which is almost equal to Noida. “
