One-third of the National Capital Region (NCR) will now be reduced. The area of NCR has been decided in the meeting of the NCR Planning Board held on Tuesday. All states will get equal opportunity in this. Due to the new rule, the area of Haryana and Rajasthan will be reduced. This can have an impact on two tehsils of UP.
Jansath tehsil of Muzaffarnagar and Shikarpur tehsil of Bulandshahr may be out of NCR. Till now the extent of NCR was more than 55 thousand square kilometers. It will now come down to 37115 square kilometres.
Haryana was continuously demanding to fix the boundary of NCR. Actually, 13 districts of Haryana are part of NCR. Due to this, the rules of NCR apply here at the time of pollution. From burning stubble to ending the registration of vehicles, Haryana was facing the problem the most. Due to this, Haryana was continuously demanding to reduce the share of NCR.
In the meeting held on Tuesday, it was decided that the border of NCR will be 100 km from Rajghat. Haryana will be affected the most by the new scheme. Districts like Karnal, Jind, Kaithal may be outside the limits of NCR. Apart from this, some part of Bhiwani may also remain outside the limits of NCR.
It has been decided in the meeting that the major cities included in the existing NCR boundary should also be included in the new master plan, even if they are outside the radius of 100 km. Due to this, Alwar of Rajasthan can get a place in NCR. All the states have been told that they will prepare their subregion plan after the master plan according to the extent of 100 km.
