A snapshot: An acronym for New Okhla Industrial Development Authority, Noida was once a bunch of about 100 odd villages that were located close to the Delhi – U.P. border, and alongside the Yamuna River. Being located just 20 kilometers away from the capital city of India and bearing such close proximity to the flourishing industrial and commercial centers around it, the development of these villages into a satellite town of the booming metropolitan was but a prophecy.
As Delhi started expanding into its nearby suburbs, the southeast corner was no exception. There lay endless opportunities for commercial as well as residential developments on the other side of the Yamuna River; and nobody seemed to oblivious to this fact. Very soon, villages like Atta, Chaura, Nithari, Morna, Rasulpur Nawada and Barola were transformed into sectors of a well-planned city which was soon to become an integral part of the National Capital Region.
Noida, as it is today: Noida is a thriving example of a modernistic integrated city; one which has created endless employment opportunities as well as given housing solutions to millions moving to the National Capital Region. From an unheard of suburb to becoming one of the biggest industrial townships in Asia, Noida has been expanding every day, and this growth is quite evident in terms of infrastructure, residential and commercial developments. The city is well planned, offering easy access to all necessary facilities and being easily accessible from different parts of Delhi NCR. Traffic here is smooth as compared to other, busier, areas of NCR, and the environment is cleaner and greener as well.
