focus this time is going to be on west Delhi. According to public works department officials, of the 20-odd new roads and flyovers the department has planned, at least 14 are slated to come up on traffic choke points in west Delhi.

Is buying land a good investment?

A plot of land can offer better returns in the long term compared with built property, but purchasing it can be problematic if you are not vigilant.


    For 32-year-old Sumana Chatterjee and her husband Sumitro Mukherjee, 33, it was a fruitful end to house hunting when they bought a plot of land in Vadodara, Gujarat. However, a few months after paying the full amount, the couple was shocked when they received a stop work notice from the court on the construction of their bungalow. “We found that there was another claimant for the land and that the property was under litigation,” says Chatterjee.

Update 14 Feb 2011

The Bubble May be Set To Burst Again

Property prices in major Indian cities, including Mumbai and New Delhi, are set to slump by as much as 30% in the next three-six months as rising interest rates and tighter lending norms have led to a sharp drop in demand for homes.

"Softening in prices would begin in a month or two if sales continue to be low," said Adhidev Chattopadhyay, an analyst at Mumbai-based Edelweiss Securities Ltd. A Credit Suisse note on 19 January forecast that property sales in India may decline unless prices are cut 10-30%.

Express News Service | New Delhi | August 21, 2014 2:03 am

DMRC not game for route change

HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times
Gurgaon, August 13, 2012

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has ruled out any change in the route plan of the proposed high-speed Metro line connecting Iffco Chowk in Gurgaon and IGI Airport. The DMRC has also no plans to add new stations on the line.

The DMRC will soon submit the revised detailed

project report (DPR) to the Haryana government, said a senior DMRC official.

"We are in the last stages of finalising the DPR and hopefully submitting it to the state government in a week or two," he added.

It's a serious blow to Old Gurgaon residents who have been demanding a change in the proposed alignment.

"We will launch an agitation if the government fail to address our demand," said Ashok Taneja, a resident of old Gurgaon.

On February 3 this year, the DMRC had submitted the project report of the 12-km long high-speed Metro route with three metro stations in between IGI Airport and Iffco Chowk to the state government.

Under pressure from Old Gurgaon residents, the district officials raised some reservations to the project, saying the proposed link would serve no purpose to a large number of people living in the old city, or in the west side of the expressway.

The district officials suggested some changes: Divert the proposed route from Palam Vihar towards Rajiv Chowk along Atul Kataria and Sheetla Mata roads. Old Gurgaon residents had given representations to Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda twice.

The DMRC said the Haryana government should plan other routes to cater to the needs of Old Gurgaon residents.

Why India may see several ‘little Singapore’ smart cities in 5 years

18 Aug 2014

The government has already initiated concrete steps to implement Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promise of building 100 ‘smart cities’ – eco-friendly cities which use innovative Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for efficient delivery of public services and infrastructure.

PM Modi’s pet idea of building 100 ‘smart cities’ would need massive financial resources and technological prowess. For both these prerequisites, India will have to look up to foreign countries. Many countries have expressed their interest towards this endeavour of the new Indian government.

The Modi government has allocated Rs 7,060 crore (a little over $1.1 billion) in its maiden union budget to kickstart the smart cities project.

Singapore has emerged as a major foreign player in the Indian scheme of things in this context.

The government plans to deliver three smart cities by 2019, all of which will be part of the larger project called Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). These smart cities, scheduled to be completed by 2019, are Dholera, Shendra-Bidkin and Global City.

MLAs demand Monorail in their constituencies

NEW DELHI, April 2, 2013

A detailed survey of Delhi will be conducted by engineering consultants RITES Ltd. to check the feasibility for setting up Monorail facilities, said Delhi Transport Minister Ramakant Goswami on Monday while responding to the demands made by several MLAs in the Delhi Assembly for extending this light rail transit system to their constituency.

The discussion began with a question put forth under ‘Starred Questions’ by BJP MLA from Sangam Vihar Dr. S.C.L. Gupta who wanted to know the parameters prescribed by the Government to operate Monorail facilities in different areas in the city. He also asked if Monorail will be introduced in Sangam Vihar to promote tourism in the area. “A Monorail facility should be brought about to link Sangam Vihar to Mehrauli since 20 lakh people use the Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road daily,” he said.
