Gzb ’31 master plan to be finalized soon, file objections by June 22 | Ghaziabad News

Ghaziabad: The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) is set to finalize the city’s Master Plan 2031, which increases land for residential use from 41.5% to 42%. So far, GDA has received over 50 objections to its project from the public, including residents and organizations. June 22 is the deadline for filing objections.
“We are in the process of finalizing the 2031 Master Plan. Residential land use near the RRTS Corridor, DME and EPE is expected to increase, and with this in mind, land use has been amended in Master Plan 2031. The project is in the public domain, and we have sought objections. The deadline for filing objections is June 22, after which the GDA select committee will deal with genuine objections. After review, we will probably incorporate changes into the final project,” said an official from GDA’s planning department.
The revised draft will be submitted to the GDA board and, once approved, officials will send it to the state government, which usually issues the notification within a fortnight.
“If there is no extension and depending on how quickly GDA calls the board meeting, the whole process will take two more months before the plan is implemented,” added the manager.
The land allocated to the industrial title in the 2031 master plan has fallen to 5.5% of the total territory from 5% in the 2021 master plan, but logistics and warehouses will now occupy 8% of the territory under this title. Ghaziabad’s proximity to the nation’s capital, the Delhi Meerut Expressway, the Eastern Ring Road and the Delhi-Howrah rail line makes it the ideal city to become NCR’s logistics hub. Other changes in the 2031 master plan compared to the 2021 master plan include an increase in land for residential use to 42% from 41.5% and an increase in green belts to 16.5% from 15.8%.
