Yogi Adityanath has approved the Phase 2 of the Master Plan 2031 planned by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Authority (YEIDA). As per the plan, two new townships will be developed in YEIDA which will have a separate heritage city to encourage tourism and an industrial area.
Now that the approval by the state government has been given, YEIDA has got the tittle of the largest industrial township in India which has an area of 2687 square kilometers.
In August 2015, YEIDA had decided to modify and restructure the area which came under its second part of the Master Plan 2031. A proper survey of the decide area was done with the objective of concentrating on regulated development of the 185 km stretch of Yamuna Expressway.
As per the statement by the CEO of YEIDA, smart cities will be developed out of the two urban centers with an area of more than 20000 hectares.
By the Master Plan of 2031, Phase 2 has double the area of Phase 1. The land in Phase 2 will be used for purposes including residential, industrial and institutional. Corporate spaces along with recreational green areas have also been kept reserved in the area of the master plan.
