The Delhi Master Plan may not fulfill your Dream for home until 2021

The Real Estate Guru Tarun Shienh thinks that the Delhi Master plan is still a distant dream, especially for those who want to realize their dreams of owning home before 2021. The Real Estate Guru Tarun Shienh says that The Delhi Master Plan is still on paper and the way to implement it in words and deed passes through a long and a tedious legal process. There are lots of legal hurdles which require thorough scrutiny. What are these legal hurdles? Let us know in his own words:

Delhi is the capital city of India and home to a population of almost 16 million people. It remains one of the largest urban agglomerations in the world. Therefore, it becomes important to look at the state of urban planning in the city and to constantly evolve and evaluate the strategies for managing its growth and development The Master Plan for Delhi is supposed to be the main policy document for this purpose, a legally enforceable text which lays down the planning strategies and development controls applicable to the city.

This paper attempts to provide a critical analysis of the Master Plan, keeping in mind the recent controversies regarding the demolition drive in the city against unauthorized construction. There is an attempt to deconstruct the provisions of the plan in the face of the ground realities facing the residents. Special attention is given to the debate over stringent and outdated development controls and zoning regulations in the city and the theoretical underpinnings of this debate.

The paper also looks at some examples of cities across the world to get a feel of the international trends in planning for better cities. The paper finds that there are serious shortcomings in the draft plan, which has failed to address the demands of the residents of the city. The paper concludes that there is a case for greater participation by the people in the decision making process rather than a top down planning approach, and there is an urgent need to review the Master Plan and bring out the finalized draft for implementation at the soonest.

India lives in its villages, but modern India resides in its cities. Cities are the centers of growth to which the populace from all regions gets attracted to, whether to look for new career opportunities, or in hope of finding a better life and escaping the drudgery and poverty of stagnating rural areas. All across the world, any country that has experienced the transformation of an economically developed nation has experienced sharply increased urbanization also, with cities emerging as centers of trade manufacturing and sophisticated service providers. India is no different. With an ever-expanding economy and sharp rise in the share of services in the national income, India is experiencing urbanization as never before. In total, some 108 million Indians, or 10.5 per cent of the national population, live in the country’s 35 largest cities. According to the 2001 census in all about 27% of the population lives in urban areas with an urban to rural ratio of 39.

Today Mumbai is the largest Indian city and the third largest urban area in the world with a population of 18.84 million. The National Capital Region of Delhi is the 6th largest urban area in the world with a population of about 16 million people. Cities of such huge magnitude, having a population of over 10 million, are in fact, now classified as ‘Mega Cities’.

But with the growth of such large urban areas also comes the problem of managing them well to ensure good quality of life for the residents. The existence of such large numbers of people densely packed into compact regions has led to ever-increasing burdens on the resources available in the cities. Housing, waste management, slums, transportation, have emerged as some of the most pressing problems in urban areas along with the overall issue of effective utilization of land. It is in dealing with such problems that urban planning comes to the fore, in order to provide a comprehensive development strategy for the city with a forward-looking approach. The city may thus get divided into administrative and uses based zones with separate plans for the same along with an all encompassing master plan for the city as a whole.

The question is how relevant and effective are such plans, both in their objectives and in their implementation. Do they pragmatically take into consideration the actual ground realities or are they too utopian in nature? Is due consideration given to the financial viability of such plans? And most importantly to what extent does this planning process curtail the rights of individual citizens to use their properties as they see fit, and to pursue any means of self-improvement that the city has to offer.

This paper attempts to analyze these issues focusing on the draft document on the Master Plan for Delhi till the year 2021 (MPD 2021). There has been a lack of comprehensive analysis on this major policy document till now and at present there is no research work available on the Master Plan. This work becomes all the more relevant in light of the widespread protests and controversies that these plans seem to generate. There is a huge urban planning quandary here. On one hand Denizens are protesting against the demolition drive launched by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi against unauthorized constructions whereas on the other hand the implementing agencies and judicial bodies are helpless who are saddled with the task of ensuring the implementation of the existing provisions of the master plan. The city is demanding a change in the draconian land use policy and requires an urgent revision and the formulation of a new Master Plan. Yet the new Master Plan is not without its own shortcomings. The paper aims to provide a critical analysis of the existing draft plan in this context and to collate examples of successful urban planning the world over. Finally the paper looks into the issue of zoning and strictly ordained and planned land use and its relevance in a free market based economy based with the inviolable right to private property.

Our products meet international standards including UL, IEC, ETL, CE, JET, JIS,CEC, FSEC,MCS, etc required to sell our products across the globe.
Solar power in India

With about 300 clear, sunny days in a year, India's theoretically calculated solar energy incidence on its land area alone is about 5,000 trillion kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year (or 5 EWh/yr).

The solar energy available in a year exceeds the possible energy output of all fossil fuel energy reserves in India. The daily average solar power plant generation capacity over India is 0.25 kWh per m2 of used land area, which is equivalent to about 1,500–2,000 peak (rated) capacity operating hours in a year with the available commercially-proven technologies.

On 16 May 2011, India’s first 5 MW of installed capacity solar power project was registered under the Clean Development Mechanism.

The project is in Sivagangai Village, Sivaganga district, Tamil Nadu. In January 2015, the Indian government significantly expanded its solar plans targeting US$100 billion of investment and 100 GW of solar capacity by 2022.

Current status 
Government-funded solar electricity in India was approximately 6.4 MW per year as of 2005. India is ranked number one in terms of solar electricity production per watt installed, with an insolation of 1,700 to 1,900 kilowatt hours per kilowatt peak (kWh/KWp).

25.1 MW was added in 2010 and 468.3 MW in 2011. As of 31 August 2015, the installed grid connected solar power capacity is 4,229.36 MW, and India expects to install an additional 10,000 MW by 2017 and a total of 100,000 MW by 2022.

Solar Energy in India

The Indian solar story is much bigger than the story of one country and one technology. It is one of those game-changing developments that will have an impact on many aspects of our lives around the globe. It is the opportunity of a lifetime for India, for the global energy industry and for the climate. Here is why.

In terms of its energy infrastructure, India is where China was 30 years ago: It needs to industrialize and for that it needs to massively expand its energy supply. The difference is: its choices are much better and clearer. A look at China shows the downsides of a coal-heavy strategy: severe pollution and enormous water-usage. At the same time, the costs of wind and solar have fallen to about 5-10% of what they were in 1990.

India has the option of building its future energy infrastructure around solar and other renewables storage and smart grids rather than coal. This will be a choice that costs less, is much cleaner, saves water, provides a maximum of energy security and allows India to move to the forefront of key future technologies. Solar has enough potential to satisfy a vastly increased power demand in India.

It is also the opportunity of a lifetime for Indians that have no access to power (mostly in the villages) or face highly unreliable power (in many cities and industrial hubs). Solar now puts the power into the hands of consumers. It is quick and easy to install, making distributed power generation possible. In future, if the government won’t fix it, consumers will do it themselves.

A Lifetime Opportunity for Solor Energy in india 
India is a huge market, perhaps the largest future energy opportunity anywhere. As compared to China, it is also a much more open market. If solar will be the backbone of India’s future energy economy, that is good news for energy companies around the world: they can offer solutions in a market that is more transparent, more competitive and more environmentally friendly than thermal power.

This promise of the Indian solar market attracts an entirely new crowd of international investors, ranging from American and European utilities to the Japanese entrepreneur Masayoshi Son and his Softbank, to leading private equity investors and to the Russian oil major Rosneft – often shifting away from other energy businesses (oil, coal, nuclear). They are making investment bets as large as any in the global energy market. Solar is no longer a niche opportunity. It is mainstream and India has attracted the biggest investments this year.

A Lifetime Opportunity for the Global Climate 
Last but not least, solar in India is one of the biggest single measures to save the global climate.

On the other hand, if India can build a modern energy infrastructure around solar, it will be of enormous benefit to everyone. And think of the effect this would have on development conversations everywhere: it can show the way for other countries in a similar stage of development in Africa, Asia and the Middle East – altogether around half the world’s population.

Premia Group residential project - The Western Star

दिल्ली एनसीआर में घर के सपना देखने वाले लोगों के लिए ये दीवाली यादगार साबित हो सकती है। एक ओर दिल्ली के एनसीआर नोयडा, ग्रेटर नोयडा में अपना घर खरीदने पर ना सिर्फ बिल्डर्स ढेर सारे ऑफर दे रहे हैं वहीं दूसरी ओर सरकार की ओर से रेपो रेट और रिवर्स रेपो रेट कम होने से घर की मासिक किस्त भी सस्ती हो जाएगी। जिसके चलते इस ये दीवाली बायर्स के लिए यादगार साबित हो सकती है। ये कहना है दिल्ली एनसीआर के मशहूर बिल्डर, प्रीमिया ग्रुप के चेयरमैन और द रियल एस्टेट गुरू के नाम से मशहूर तरुन शीन का।

द रियल एस्टेट गुरू तरुन शीन की माने तो रियल्टी बाजार की ओर अब बायर्स काफी आ रहे हैं। जिसकी दो वजह वो बताते हैं। पहली वजह की जानकारी देते हुए तरुन शीन कहते हैं कि, ग्रेटर नोयडा वेस्ट के सेक्टर एक स्थित प्रीमिया वेस्टर्न स्टार अपने ग्राहकों को बेहतर सेगमेंट पर घर दे रहा है। इतना ही नहीं भुगतान के लिए कई तरह के स्लैब हैं जिसमें डाउन पेमेंट प्लान, फ्लैक्सी प्लान, कंस्ट्रक्शन लिंक प्लान, स्पेशन पैमेंट प्लान और सववेंशन प्लान शामिल है। ग्राहक अपनी पसंद के हिसाब से प्लान ले सकता है और पैमेंट कर सकता है।

वेस्टर्न स्टार में घर खरीदने वालों के लिए वेस्टर्न स्टार में कई तरह की खुबिया हैं जिसमें हम क्लव, स्वीमिंग पूल और जिम जैसी जरूरी सुविधा दे रहे हैं। ये जगह अपना घर देखने वालों के लिए आदर्श जगह है। हमने ये वेस्टर्न स्टार और दूसरे प्रोजेक्ट्स की जानकारी अपनी बेवसाइट पर डाली है जिसका पता है है।

द रियल एस्टेट गुरू तरुन शीन कहते हैं कि हमारी ये कोशिश है कि इस दीवाली पर घर का सपना देखने वाले लोगों का सपना पूरा हो। वहीं दिल्ली एनसीआर के नोयडा और ग्रेटर नोयडा में बढ़ती कीमतो पर अपनी राय देते हुए तरुन शीन कहते हैं। दिल्ली एनसीआर में बहुत से बिल्डर्स अपने प्रोजेक्ट लेकर आ रहे हैं। इस बीच प्रोजेक्ट में लगने वाली लागत में भी इजाफा हुआ है। हालांकि बहुत से बिल्डर्स ने अपने प्रोजेक्ट्स के रेट में इजाफा किया है लेकिन, प्रीमिया ग्रुप की कोशिश ये है कि हम आज भी बेहतर कीमत में ग्राहकों के घर का सपना पूरा कर सके।
