1.4 Special Characteristics of the zone are Rohtak Road, Najafgarh Drain, Najafgarh Road, NH-8, and Ring Road. Important features of the zone and their Planning provisions are as follows:
1.4.1 GREEN BELT
Southern part of the zone along the border of NCTD earlier designated as Rural / Agriculture land is shown as Green Belt, in synergy with the provision of Regional plan 2021 of NCR/MPD-2021. The belt extends from the NCTD boundary up to a depth of one peripheral revenue village boundary, wherever possible. There are two villages namely, Bijwasan and Kapeshera village which are falling within the Green Belt.
Part of sub-zone G-18 which was also earlier designated as Rural use zone is considered for new planned urban extension area . The area is bounded by Rewari Railway Line in the West. Airport on the North, NH-8 on the East and U.T. boundary line on the South. In this area land is proposed to be broadly used for Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Recreational, Public and Semi-public facilities and Circulation etc.
Permissibility/Activities and development in the Green Belt are to be in accordance with the provisions stipulated in the Master Plan.
1.4.2 CANTONMENT AREA
The Cantonment Area is consisting of five sub-zones viz G-5, 6,7,11 and 12. The development of these sub-zones will be taken up as per the provision of the Master plan by the concerned land owning agency.
1.4.3 AIRPORT AREA
Sub-zone G-15, comprising of Airport area, approximately about 2260 hac. is bounded by Rewari Railway Line on the West, Cantt. Area on the north, NH-8 in the East and sub-zone G-18 on its South.
The international and domestic Passenger movement in Delhi is catered by Indira Gandhi International Airport and Palam Airport respectively. Both the Airports have been linked to other part of the city and urban extension through the transport network to facilitate fast movement. Development / Redevelopment proposals are to be prepared by Airport Authority within the overall frame work of the Master Plan.
The total area earmarked for the Airport is about 2260 ha. vide Ministry of Civil Aviation letter dt.7.1.98, “AAI should prepare MP of airport and have an arrangement with local bodies so that MP of the airport does not violate the MP of local bodies such as DDA.”
Further it is suggested that while working out the development plan of the Airport, the following is ensured:
i) Connecting International Airport and Domestic Airport Terminals by internal road network.
ii) To connect the Airport with the city by Metro in consultation with DMRC.
iii) Traffic Management improvement and widening of the roads within and surrounding the airport. It may be noted that the NH-8 is to be developed to 90 M. Right of way.
iv) Augmentation of parking facilities, including buses and taxies.
v) Integrating the airport with the proposed Metropolitan Railway Passenger Terminal at Dwarka, ISBT, Metro corridor and other public transport.
As compared to the present volume of traffic to the Airport to the tune of 16.2 million passenger per annum, the forecast for 2007 is 20.4 million passenger which will enhanced to 66.4 million passenger per annum in the year 2021. To cater to such a heavy volume of traffic, adequate road network will have to be developed alongwith parking. This requires provisions of proper circulation network within the Airport and its periphery. The development of commercial areas/hotels within the airport area, needs to be seen in view of its implications on traffic and transportation network of surrounding roads/NH-8.
The development of Airport will require augmentation of utilitiesparticularly power, water supply and drainage facilities. Accordingly, Service plans may be prepared in consultation with the Service Agencies/DJB/MCD. It is proposed that existing villages/abadi be shifted outside the airport complex and the area thus available be utilized for transportation and parking requirement.
1.4.4 TIHAR JAIL
The Central Jail is located in sub-zone G-13. This is a high security central jail and is the only of its kind not only in Delhi. Programmes for redevelopment of the Jail area are to be prepared by concerned authority/ GNCTD within the overall framework of the Master Plan.
