  • Highlights – MPD 2021

    The Master Plan for Delhi (MPD)-2021, notified by the Central Government states that while it may not be possible to make an accurate forecast, the expectation is that the population of Delhi may range between 230 to 240 lakh in the year 2021, and also that the requirement of land, provision of infrastructure, transportation etc should be planned for the projected population of 236 lakh. The major strategies provided in MPD-2021 to meet the requirement of housing in the National Capital Territory of Delhi include:

    The land pooling policy of Delhi Development Authority (DDA) promises to radically change the way land is acquired and developed in the Capital. Named ‘policy on public-private-partnership in land assembly and development in Delhi’, it will allow the entry of the private sector in this zone.

    EMPHASIS ON GROUP HOUSING This policy aims to promote the cooperative living style to ensure the optimal utilization of land.

    Now government has decided to remove unnecessary controls (like height) for optimum utilization of land and to facilitate creation of ‘signature’ projects. Enhancement of ground coverage, FAR and height for all categories of residential plots is on the cards

    Under MPD-2021 the Delhi Development Authority has approved one-acre of land for constructing country homes (Farm Houses) in the new development zones. Villages which are located on the periphery of the Capital are identified as low density residential areas. There are 27 villages in this category and it was declared that it will be developed as an integrated urbanized area.

    Coverage to be to the extent of 15-20% of the total land use. This could motivate contemporary projects affording better amenities and 'green cover' to be developed. Elaborate provisions have been made for the Development of community / facility centres along major transport corridors and networks, Integrated Freight Complexes and wholesale Markets, Provisions for service and repair activities etc.
