Sectors like KP3, KP5, and Tech Zone have established industrial set-ups in the vicinity located near India Expo Mart, these are well connected to the Yamuna Expressway. There is a proposal to extend the Metro rail, from Dwarka-Noida City Center to Pari Chowk, which will give direct connectivity to Delhi and other NCR areas.

Work on the much-awaited 29km-long Noida-Greater Noida Metro link is expected to start soon as the UP government has already given approval to the recently-formed Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC). The authorities of Noida and Greater Noida have started to raise funds for these projects. The authorities will raise 50% of the total fund while the rest is expected to come from the Union government.

A 315MW power sub-station is going to be commissioned in March, while construction of a pipeline from Dehra to Greater Noida via Upper Ganga Canal is almost complete.
