Vision of Faridabad Master Plan 2031
For a projected population of 10 lacs for the year 2001, a draft development plan was published-vide Gazette notification No. 3431-10DP-82/6194 dated the 26th April, 1982. Thereafter, the Final Development Plan of Faridabad-Ballabgarh Controlled Areas 2011 A.D. was published vide Haryana Government Gazette notification No. 13/29/91-3C II dated 11th December, 1991 for a projected population of 17.5 lacs by 2011. This Plan had proposals for urbanization from Delhi border in the North, up to Foothills of Aravalli ranges in the West, beyond Gurugram-Agra Canal in the East and up to the revenue estate of village Jharsently in the South.
The length of the urbanizable area in the Final Development Plan of 2011 is about 24 kilometers and width 12 kilometers towards western side of the above urbanizable area, there is a rocky undulating area, wherein urbanization is not feasible. Similarly, this town cannot be expanded towards its north due to the constraint of Haryana-Delhi border. Therefore, the additional area beyond east of Agra Canal, south and South-West of the town is being proposed for the development of additional urbanizable area for additional population as a part of Faridabad Master Plan 2031.
