The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has identified 1,100 hectares of vacant land in Ghaziabad, including areas in Modinagar, Muradnagar, Loni, and Ghaziabad city, for industrial expansion. This move comes in response to the numerous memorandums of understanding (MoUs) signed during the Uttar Pradesh Investors’ Summit earlier this year.
According to GDA officials, the identified land has been marked in the draft Master Plan 2031, which is in its final stages. Investors interested in getting their projects approved can approach the authorities after selecting the appropriate land, which can be directly purchased from farmers.
The GDA has already submitted 31 different MoUs to the government, receiving 51 proposals in response. In the first phase, 18 proposals have been processed, and the master plan is nearing completion. State officials have provided suggestions for detailing, which will be implemented in the coming weeks.
Once finalized, the master plan will be presented to the GDA board for approval before being sent to the state government for final authorization. The plan designates approximately 45% of the land for residential use, 15% for green areas, 5% for industrial purposes, and 2% for commercial use, as per the norms.
With a geographical area of 522 sq m, Ghaziabad has a comprehensive master plan that allocates land for various purposes, including residential, commercial, and industrial developments, among others. The identification of these additional land chunks showcases the city’s commitment to industrial growth and attracting investments.
