The Haryana government is planning to develop the Global city project in Gurgaon as the new central business district in the National Capital Region (NCR). The township spread over 1,000 acre, will be developed across Sector 36B, Sector 37A and Sector 37B in Gurgaon along the upcoming Dwarka Expressway (Northern Peripheral Road).
The Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) has invited bids for the auction of three mixed-use plots under the project. As per officials, the project has an investment potential of 15 billion USD. The HSIIDC has floated tenders for the construction of facilities, including civic amenities.
The construction of the Global city project is expected to start by August 2023 or in September 2023 after the monsoon retreats, officials said. It will be completed within 36 months from the start of construction.
The plots for sale have a total area of around 142.52 acre. The last date to apply is May 1, 2023. The e-auction of the three plots of 78.53 acre, 23.76 acre and 40.23 acre will be conducted on May 19 2023. The reserve price for the 78.53-acre plot is Rs 4,957 crore, while it is Rs 1,298 crore for the 23.76-acre plot and Rs 1,562 crore for the 40.23-acre plot. Only 20 per cent of the total area in two plots will be developed for residential use and for the third plot, it is 30 per cent. The remaining area will be used for non-residential purposes. The last date for submitting bids for the construction of infrastructure facilities in the upcoming township is April 12, 2023. The e-auction date is yet to be announced.
Global city: Construction details
The Global city project comprises residential zones, industrial clusters and commercial sites. It will be developed as a futuristic business centre.
Around 500 acre will be allotted for residential and commercial complexes and industrial clusters and the remaining area will be available for the construction of roads, sewer lines, utility tunnels, and fire-fighting systems, and other amenities.
The upcoming project will include a utility tunnel beneath the roads, a first-of-its-kind facility in India. The tunnel will be utilised for catering to all types of utilities such as electricity lines, water pipelines and telephone network lines. Owing to this tunnel, there will be no need for road digging in the future.
Global city: Amenities
The Global city project has been conceptualised as a self-sufficient township, with emphasis on modern technology and future-oriented industries, low-carbon green infrastructure, ease of living, skilling of people and job creation. Dedicated pathways for walkers and cyclists will be available in the township.
Global city: Connectivity
The project will have connectivity to New Delhi and other localities in Gurgaon. NH-48, which connects Delhi to Jaipur, and Central Peripheral Road are in proximity. The project will also be accessible from Pataudi Road.
As per officials, the development of interstate and intercity bus terminal and an integrated multi-modal transit hub will be undertaken in the vicinity.
Different modes of public transportation, such as the Gurgaon-Bawal metro corridor, will pass through the township.
Under the second phase of the project, an additional 500 acres will be constructed. It will include the metro corridor.
