Context:

Recently, the National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) approved the 'Draft Regional Plan 2041' according to which the National Capital Region (NCR) has reduced its size. A detailed draft plan will soon be available for public suggestions and objections and thereafter, it will be notified by the NCR Planning Board.

Key Highlights:

  • Linear corridors will be developed beyond a 100 km radius and up to the existing NCR boundary, making a way for development in areas falling within 1 kilometre from expressways, national highways and regional rapid transit systems.
  • The decision to include or omit tehsils lying partly within this 100 km delineation will be left to the respective state governments.
  • Faridabad, Noida, Gurgaon, Greater Noida and some areas of Meerut and others will remain part of the NCR as they fall under 100 km radius conditions.

NCR’s Current Area:

  • Currently, NCR consists of 24 districts in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan and Delhi as a whole, spread over an area of ​​55,083 square kilometres.
  • NCR currently spreads to around 150-175 kilometres. But with the approval of Regional Plan 2041, areas beyond 100 km will not be the main part of the NCR.

About NCRPB:

  • It was established in 1985, to promote the balanced development of the NCR and to avoid haphazard development.
