Growth Corridor put on hold

With the Outer Ring Road (ORR) project running into controversies, the government has reportedly put the Growth Corridor project on hold.

Real estate boom in the city happened only after Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda) announced the Growth Corridor project, a 1-km development zone on both sides of the ORR.

Taking prospects along the 162-km ORR into consideration, Huda has decided to prepare a comprehensive development plan by framing special development regulation for areas falling under the one-km belt. It is likely to cover 80,000 acres of land in 113 villages. This belt will partly cover areas of notified master plan of one municipal area, zonal development plan for Shambhupur zone, Medchal zone, Yamjal zone, Keesara zone, Poppalguda zone, Ramchandrapuram zone and part of the Hyderabad Airport Development Authority area.

Under the provisions of the Andhra Pradesh Urban Areas (Development) Act, 1975, public objections and suggestions to the comprehensive plan and special development regulations were invited. Huda received objections and suggestions from some 300 individuals and organisations and submitted them to the government for its early approval.

As per the proposed regulations for construction activities, individual plots should be at least 1,200 sq mts (1,450 sq yards) and residential layouts of 15 acres.

With the Growth Corridor getting wide publicity, many small plot owners sold their land at throwaway prices to realtors.

After the ORR ran into controversies, the government is reportedly going slow on the Growth Corridor project, sources said.

The Growth Corridor file has been cleared by the municipal administration and urban development and finance departments, but has been referred to legal experts. “Huda has done its bit. As soon as the government approves it, we will implement it,” Huda vice-chairman Jayesh Ranjan told TOI.
