GREATER NOIDA : The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) is all set to get the UP government's nod for the second phase of Master Plan 2031, which was cleared in its board meeting last month. Once cleared, YEIDA will develop four new townships adjacent to the cities of Aligarh, Agra, Hathras and Mathura.

The total area under the master plan will be more than 2 lakh hectares, while the 'four new nodes' will be developed into smart cities across 30,000 hectares. This area has been declared as urban area by the YEIDA board.

Unlike the first phase, the second phase of the master plan will not require clearance from the NCR Planning Board as the area does not fall within its jurisdiction. According to the master plan, the population of the city is likely to be 35 million by 2031 in Phase II. In this master plan, 10, 465 hectares of land has to be acquired, which will be done from 105 villages of Aligarh, 420 of Mahamaya Nagar, 431 in Mathura and six of Agra.

YEIDA officials said that Phase II includes more than double the area of Phase I in the Master Plan 2031. In Phase II, 2,000 acres of land has been reserved for green space besides mixed land-use including industrial, residential and institutional. Officials said that recreational green areas and corporate spaces have also been earmarked along the Yamuna Expressway.

P C Gupta, CEO, YEIDA, told TOI that on receiving the government's nod, they will start the process of developing the four new townships.

"These will be smart cities or urban settlements that exploit technology to offer more structured and hospitable living conditions for residents," Gupta said. "The infrastructure of these cities will be equipped with systems aimed at better management of energy resources, water, transport and traffic, safety and security. Information and communication technology will form the backbone of these future cities," he said.
