’Neharpar Faridabad’ or ’Greater Faridabad’ refers to newly developed Sectors 66 to 89 in Faridabad, Haryana, India. Sector 66 to 74 are Industrial Sectors whereas Sector 75 to 89 are Residential Sectors. This area is being developed new, and hence will boast of wide roads, tall buildings, malls, educational institutions, health and commercial centers. Faridabad has huge amount of central funding coming from Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM). A number of infrastructure initiatives are already completed and many more are underway which will provide vastly improved connectivity to Greater Faridabad area which is not only limited to upcoming Delhi-Faridabad Metro but also connectivity to Greater Noida through two upcoming bridges over Yamuna one being the part of planned FNG (Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad Expressway, extension of Faridabad Bypass Road up to DND Flyover at Maharani Bagh, Delhi through Kalindi Kunj Bypass Project and widening of National Highway 2 known as ‘Mathura Road.

Greater Faridabad has a number of geographical, infrastructural, and economical advantages.

  • Environment Sustainability

Greater Faridabad is very close to River Yamuna which makes its land very appropriate for long term sustainability and for making sufficient natural resources like water available to its residents. Further unlike Gurgaon which is prone to direct hot summer winds coming from Jaipur (in Rajasthan), Faridabad and Greater Faridabad areas are blessed because of Aravali Range Mountains between Gurgaon and Faridabad blocking hot summer winds to enter its geographical space.

  • Proximity

Greater Faridabad is located between Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida and Gurgaon. It is surrounded by Delhi to its North, Noida to its North East, Greater Noida to its East and Gurgaon to its West. Thus it is easily accessible from all locations in NCR. Down the way in South alongside National Highway 2 it has Palwal, Mathura (along Vrindavan) and then Agra.

  • Connectivity

The National Highway-2 (Delhi-Mathura Road) passes through Faridabad, and thus it is well connected to nearby states. Roadways services of Haryana (Haryana Roadways) and neighbouring states like Delhi Transport Corporation, Uttar Pardesh Transport Department, and Madhya Pradesh Transport Department are easily accessible. Faridabad is also connected to Gurgaon through Gurgaon-Faridabad Road which starts from Sec 26 in Gurgaon and end near Badhkal Lake in Faridabad. Greater Faridabad is going to become the best connected locations in NCR in the coming years because of multiple factors including (1)Delhi-Faridabad Metro, (2) Two bridges connecting Greater Faridabad to Noida and Greater Noida and (3) Kalindi Kunj Bypass Road Project.

   (1) Delhi-Faridabad Metro

The first connectivity factor is the Delhi-Faridabad Metro. The Violet Line (Delhi Metro) which is presently up to Badarpur Border is being extended up to YMCA Chowk in Faridabad providing access to entire Faridabad area across National Highway 2. The Delhi-Faridabad Metro work is in its final stage and the services are going to be commenced soon within few months[1] Further as per recent Govt. plans the Delhi-Faridabad Metro facility will be later extended even up to Ballabhgarh making it the widest Metro connected region in NCR[2]

   (2) Two Bridges connecting Greater Faridabad to Noida and Greater Noida

The second connectivity factor is the two upcoming bridges over Yamuna connecting Greater Faridabad to Noida and Greater Noida. One of the bridges is proposed to link Noida's Sector 168 with Faridabad's Badoli village (Near Bypass Road)[3] The other bridge would connect Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) expressway from Noida's Sector 150 to National Highway 2 in Faridabad which is a part of the planned Eastern Peripheral Expressway also termed as National Expressway 2 or KGP (Kundli-Ghaziabad-Palwal) Expressway. Government has already approved construction of the road connecting Faridabad and Greater Noida that will improve the connectivity with clearances received from both Haryana and Uttar Pradesh Governments[4] The much-awaited FNG (Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad Expressway) is finally coming on track and will provide fast connectivity to daily commuters of the area once complete; apart from this, it is also emerging as an excellent stretch for real estate development. FNG Expressway is around 56 km long with 19.9 km in Noida-Greater Noida region, 8 km in Ghaziabad, while the rest 28.1 km is in the Faridabad region, especially the developing sectors of Neharpar. According to the plan, FNG from Noida side will become operational in the next 14 months while it would take three years for the whole stretch to become fully operational[5] The completed expressway designed by IIT-Roorkee will offer commuters direct connectivity between Noida and Greater Faridabad and put an end to massive traffic jams[6]

    (3) Kalindi Kunj Bypass Project 

The third connectivity factor is the Kalindi Kunj Bypass Project which will connect DND Flyway at Maharani Bagh, Delhi to Faridabad Bypass Road near Badarpur Border. According to PWD officials, the bypass will connect the DND Flyway, cutting across the Agra Canal along the Yamuna, which runs perpendicular to Sarita Vihar and ends near Badarpur border, which further connects to Faridabad. "Commuters heading from east Delhi, South Delhi and Noida to Faridabad will be able to avoid the road to Ashram Chowk completely and that will help decongest the area for local users. The estimated cost of the project is Rupees 200 Crores and will be competed in two phases. In the first phase the stretch from Maharani Bagh (at DND Flyway) to Kalindi Kunj will be completed. In the second phase the stretch from Kalindi Kunj to Faridabad will see completion[7] The bypass will dramatically reduce travel time between Delhi and Faridabad as it will serve as an alternative to Mathura Road. Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC) gave the Public Works Department (PWD) its consent to move ahead after Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung gave the approval to the project.

  • Infrastructure:

In terms of infrastructure Greater Faridabad area will boast of modern and wide roads offering smooth rides some of which are already completed. Greater Faridabad also boasts of many reputed educational institutes such as Modern Delhi Public School and Aravali International School in Sec. 81, Emerald Convent School in Sec. 79, Lingaya’s Institute of Management and Technology, Lingaya’s Public School, Aravali College of Engineering and Management and many more. Further, more than a dozen reputed names in education situated in Faridabad are in very close proximity to Greater Faridabad area such as DAV Public School, Manav Racna International School and Apeejay School in Sec 14, St. Thomas Sr. Secondary School in Sec. 8, Vidya Mandir Public School in Sec. 15A and many more. Shopping facilities are easily available in Greater Faridabad. Many malls and posh markets in Faridabad are in close proximity. Further many malls are under construction in Greater Faridabad one of which BPTP Next Door Shopping Mall in Sec. 76 is already completed and going to be operational soon. Cost of living in Faridabad and Greater Faridabad is lowest in NCR with goods and services available at reasonable prices. Public transport though requires some improvements is economical and much more easily available as compared to Greater Noida and Gurgaon.

  • Real Estate Sector

The Real Estate sector in Greater Faridabad is booming and will be going to be very promising in future. Greater Faridabad is much more affordable and at the same time superior in several factors compared to other regions in NCR[8] The facilities being provided in the residential complexes are of international standards including lavish gardens, covered parking, podiums, sports and recreational facilities, health complexes, business centers, clubs, swimming pools to name a few. One of the main advantages of residential complexes in Greater Faridabad over Noida and Greater Noida is the nature of ownership. All residential complex in Greater Faridabad being in Haryana are Freehold, whereas those in Noida and Greater Noida being in UP are only leasehold which makes a big difference for the owners in the long run. Occupancy rate in residential complexes is constantly growing and in some such as Omaxe Heights in Sec. 86 it is more than 75 percent because of better facilities being offered by the builder.
