Total Projects in the city of greater noida: 3





Greater Noida is a census town with a population of 100,000 located in the Gautam Budh Nagar district of the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It comes under the purview of National Capital Region (NCR) of India. Greater Noida is 48 KM from New Delhi and it takes 1 hour to reach from capital city.

Greater Noida is itself a part of Noida but greater mean that during 1990's the Noida extension(now a part of Gautam Buddh Nagar) which is today known as Greater Noida.
The development of Greater Noida is managed by the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA). Greater Noida is a fast-growing region, and is connected to Agra by the six-lane Yamuna Expressway. A night safari, is proposed and once it opens it will showcase wildlife at night, is under construction; it would be the world's fifth such zoo. The annual Indian Grand Prix is held at the Buddh International Circuit which has helped putting the city firmly on the global map.

In the early 1980s the government of India realized that the rapid rate at which Delhi was expanding would result in chaos, so they planned to develop residential and industrial areas around the capital to reduce the demographic burden. Before Greater Noida, there were two areas that had been developed—Gurgaon, across the border from Haryana, and Noida, across the border with Uttar Pradesh.

Although Noida's infrastructure was carefully laid out but the 1990s saw huge growth in the Indian economy, and migration to cities like Delhi, Mumbai, and Chennai exceeded planning estimates. Noida was developed to be able to accommodate population growth for 20–25 years.The massive population influx to Delhi, however, caused it to overload in a mere 15 years.

The government of Uttar Pradesh then decided to develop another city as an extension to Noida but with better planning. The idea was to create a world-class city. The city was planned to be situated approximately 25 km from Noida. A railway station near Boraki and an International Airport were included later in the plan intending to develop Greater Noida as an independent city, however, the airport was scrapped in early 2012.

Greater Noida is a planned township. Roads are wide enough with service lanes for every major road. The sectors are named by letters of the Greek alphabet. All cabling and utilities are run underground. Alpha, Beta, and Gamma are the oldest sectors of this city. The present GNIDA office is situated in Gamma II sector just opposite to the historical village Rampur Jagir/Jahangir where the great revolutionary Pandit Ram Prasad Bismil lived for some time in the year 1919 when he was hidden underground after Mainpuri conspiracy. A park has been named as "Amar Shaheed Pt. Ram Prasad Bismil Udyan" by the Uttar Pradesh government.
