NCR board gives go- ahead to draft master plan 2011.
The committee has cleared the plan on certain conditions.
The final approval will now be given by the Planning Board headed by Union urban development minister Kamal Nath.
The statutory committee has asked the Greater Noida Authority to ensure that 16 per cent of the total area under the plan is kept aside for greenery.
The committee has also made it mandatory for the authority to reserve 20- 30 per cent units under all residential schemes for the Economically Weaker Sections ( EWS). Besides, the authority has been asked to have proper provisions for sewer and solid waste management.
The areas under the master plan must also have good connectivity with highways and the Metro, apart from having well laidout internal roads.
A group of aggrieved farmers had approached the Planning Board on Wednesday, with an aim to delay the plan's approval.
The farmers told board officials that both the Supreme Court and the high court had quashed land acquisitions in several villages, including Makoda, Shahberi, Gulistanpur, Patwadi, Surajpur, Devla, Chapraula and Biraundi and, hence, the authority was not in possession of land in these villages.
Further, they claimed that in the master plan the land- use of Chapraula, Roja Jalalpur, Chipyana, Milak, Sadullapur, Vaaidpura, Bhola Rawal, Sunpura, Khera, Dharampura and Kailashpur villages are shown as industrial. But the fact is, there is no vacant land available in these villages for acquisition.
