Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs via PIB India:
To ensure ease of living and provide urban amenities to the citizens of Delhi, a new master plan for Delhi 2041 is being prepared.
The new Master Plan will be people-friendly, easy-to-read and understand, GIS-based and available online for general public.
It will also enable stakeholders to know the exact policies/provisions that apply on their lands/properties and simplify the norms related to use premises and activities, flexibility in FAR use, parking requirements and enable flexibility in customising future developments for meeting people’s needs.
Extensive stakeholder engagement forms the basis of the Vision for Delhi.
Outreach includes schools, universities, RWAs, civil society groups and campaigns (related to child friendly cities, universal access, gender concerns, equity, migrants etc), traders and market associations, environment experts, industry groups, professional bodies, etc.
The vision for Master Plan 2041 is to “Foster a sustainable, liveable and vibrant Delhi by 2041”.
The key focus areas will be the provision of good quality green-blue areas for recreation and leisure, tackle pollution and enhance Delhi’s preparedness for Climate Change impacts.
The vision would aim at incentivising new formats like serviced apartments, condominiums, hostels, student housing, worker housing, etc.
It is also proposed to have TOD based projects to bring jobs and homes closer to mass transit, comprehensive strategies for improving old and dilapidated areas in the city.
