Bahadurgarh will be the third town in Haryana to be connected with the national capital through Delhi metro as the foundation stone for the construction of 12 kilometers long metro lane was laid on 2 February- inaugurated by honorable chief minister of Haryana, Bhupinder Singh and urban development minister, Kamal Nath.
The 11.182 km long corridor between Mundka and Bahadurgarh will be entirely elevated with seven stations and the total projected time of travelling would be 20 minutes. It will be the extension of already operational Inderlok- Mundka corridor and will run on standard gauge. The total cost of this upcoming project would be 1,991 crore rupees where it is under settlement that the Haryana Govt. would invest 788 crore rupees. It is expected that the entire project would fall under activation from March; 2016. An agreement regarding the same was also signed between DMRC and HUDA.
Reacting to this news, Mr. Ajay Dabas of Certes Realty Ltd remarked “the Metro extension would hugely benefit the zone N of the MPD 2021, with villages like Jounti, Ghevra & Kanjhawla coming within 2-3 kms of the Metro line. Also, the proposed KBI Park on 936 acres in Kanjhawla would get a boost with connectivity from two sides”
For the uninitiated, the zone N is wedged between the existing sub city of Rohini & the proposed township of Bahadurgarh. It has a nice mix of commercial, industrial & residential use land, and the proposed increase of FAR between 400-600 is likely to be announced for this zone.
