Uttar Pradesh government has cleared a proposal to change the land use of about 1000 hectares of land earmarked for a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) as per its Master Plan-2031, on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. The move comes more than two years after Noida Authority had sought the change. The said land is now proposed to be categorized as mixed land use including a residential area across 865 acres, said officials.
The Authority had proposed the following pattern of land use division. While 50 percent of the SEZ land will be used for industry, 15 percent will be earmarked for residential including group housing as well as allotment of farmers’ plots. Another 10 percent of the land will be reserved for commercial while 10 percent will be blocked for institutional use. The balance land will be used for planned development and green spaces. The SEZ land is located across nine sectors including sectors 145, 146, 147, 149, 156, 157, etc spanning villages of Gulavli, Jhatta, Mohiyapur, Nalgada.
