Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad Eway driving realty

Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad Expressway or FNG Expressway is making new property destinations in the NCR.  This expressway will pass through Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Gurugram to boost connectivity between these prominent cities. Thus, the localities along this Eway have emerged as property hotspot.

It is smart move that will offer safe and fast transport

Experts who are tracking this property market believe that the property aspects along the expressway corridors are promising. FNG expressway will offer direct connectivity between Noida and Faridabad. Once this long stretch is operational, people can travel between this stretch within half an hour.

FNG expressway is around 56 kilometer long stretch with 19-km stretch falls in Noida, 8 kilometers in Ghaziabad and the remaining 28 kilometers in Faridabad. Once this entire stretch is operational, it will alter the urban infrastructure of the region.

At present, people coming from Ghaziabad, Meerut and Hapur take these roads to reach Faridabad and Agra”.

Easy connectivity wins

Happykeys looks into the factors that really make Knowledge Park a realty segment

Well- planned sub-city

Greater Noida itself is one of the best organised residential regions of NCR, planned according to latest layout of Urban Master Plan. The Knowledge Park V, being the prominent part of this massive township, has well-developed social infrastructure which includes an excellent network of road, water supply, sewerage, drainage and many infra developments. The GNIDA – an autonomous authority has developed the almost all key infrastructure before handing over the land to private builder for residential or commercial development.

Excellent connectivity

The locality avails finest road connectivity that connects major parts of Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. Delhi is easily accessible from Knowledge Park V via main road and direct flyway.

Presently, Botanical Garden Metro station is the nearest metro link to Knowledge Park. The proposed 30 km metro rail extension from Noida to Greater Noida is underway. According to Pranav Sharma, MD, IBL Consultant, “The NMRC (Noida metro rail corporation) has proposed 20 metro stations on the route that include Sector 50, 51, 78,  81, 83, 101, 137, 143, 147, 144, 153 and 149 in Noida and Knowledge Park II, Pari Chowk, Alpha 1, Alpha 2, Delta, Knowledge Park IV and Bodaki in Greater Noida. This project is expected to complete by 2017”.

Such developments boost the potential to offer high returns on investment”, adds Sharma.

Educational hubs

The presence of good educational institutions is yet another growth driver behind the development of Knowledge park V. Gautam Buddha University, Noida International University, IEC college of Engineering, GNIT college of Management, Galgotias and Sharda University are some of the institutions of the good repute.

Still an affordable market in the NCR

While the property prices have increased significantly in the adjacent areas like Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida; still the residential markets of Greater Noida and Noida Extension regions remain affordable locations. Here, residential units priced at Rs. 3,500 – 5,500 per sqft approximately.

Situated amidst commercial and industrial hub

Knowledge Park V is located amidst the hottest business spot of the NCR region. Some of the noted companies such as Moser Baer India Ltd, Habitech Cyber Studios, ST Microelectronics are located in the vicinity.


Floor safety certification mandatory for under-construction buildings: GNIDA

The GNIDA will soon make it mandatory for developers to seek a floor-wise safety certification from IITs for under-construction buildings in Greater Noida and Extension.

The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority will soon make it mandatory for developers to seek a floor-wise safety certification from IITs for under-construction buildings in Greater Noida and Noida Extension. The stricter construction norms are being introduced as a measure to ensure that buildings, especially highrises, can withstand earthquakes. According to GNIDA officials, the safety certifications will be based on the National Building Code of India and all builders will have to submit a report to the authority after the IIT clearance in order to continue construction.

The decision will affect over three lakh apartments in Noida Extension and Greater Noida that are in different stages of construction and completion. So far, the norm was for all builders to seek a structural safety clearance before starting construction and after completing the project to get completion certificates from GNIDA. Now, safety clearances will have to be taken for every floor.

The measures are being adopted in Noida Extension and Greater Noida as a number of high rises clutter the skyline here. The entire region falls under Seismic Zone 4, which makes it prone to earthquakes. The spate of quakes in last year that shook NCR has also put the lens on whether the quality of constructions here is enough to resist stronger earthquakes. The buyers’ associations have welcomed the news. Any initiative which is pro-safety and pro-buyer is welcome. However, such approval and clearances should have a direct impact. There is a need for supervision on the building process by the authority.

In response to the initiative, the builders’ association, Credai, said the move is welcome as long as it does not delay construction process. This seems a buyers’ friendly move from authority but we have to check that this should not hurt the proposed deadline of the projects. The industry is already going through phase of project delays and I wish this should not add the worry of developer’s body.



2% Hike In Stamp Duty By April-End

The stamp duty in Noida and Greater Noida will be increased to 7% from the current 5% by end of April, sources in UP stamp and registration department declared. While a notification for the same has already been issued by UP industries department, the stamp and registration department too will issue a notification within a week. There are over 30,000 registries pending mainly due to delay on the part of developers, who are yet to make payments to Noida Authority. According to sources, without payment, the Authority does not issue completion certification to developers, without which, the stamp and registration department does not register properties.

Tenders Initiated For Underpass On Noida-Greater Noida E-Way

The proposed underpass will be constructed to connect sectors 44 and 126. This plan has been vetted by IIT-Delhi and will be constructed using the pushback technology.

In an attempt to provide smooth access to commuters travelling between Noida and Delhi and to improve connectivity for areas along the Noida-Greater Noida expressway, the Noida Authority has planned a new underpass. The proposed underpass will be constructed to connect sectors 44 and 126. Having been vetted by IIT-Delhi, the underpass will be constructed using pushback technology so that there is least disruption of traffic movement. Tenders for the project have been initiated on Wednesday and the contractor for the project will be finalized on April 26. The project is expected to reduce the distance to Delhi by about 7 kms. Currently commuters travelling from sectors 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 96, 97, 98, 99, etc need to take a detour and travel up to sector 105. Even though there is an underpass between sectors 97 and 127, since it is very narrow, only light motor vehicles and two-wheelers can use it. School buses and bigger vehicles cannot use the facility and have to take a longer route to travel to Delhi via Okhla barrage. This leads to traffic congestion along the e-way as well as on the Mahamaya flyover.  More>>
