Probably known as the emerging star of Western Uttar Pradesh; Greater Noida West, which is also commonly known as Noida Extension is a part of Greater Noida, a city with a population of around 1,50,000. The city is a part of Gautam Budh Nagar district and comes under the purview of NCR. During early 1980s, the government realised the rapid growth at which the capital was expanding which would have resulted in a massive chaos and thus, they came up with the idea of developing residential and industrial setups around Delhi to reduce the burden. Before Greater Noida came up, Noida and Gurgaon were two such hubs that were planned keeping this logic in mind. But even the plans laid for Noida and Gurgaon were unable to cope up with the sudden growth.
Thus, to further extend Noida region, Noida Extension which is now officially known as Greater Noida West, came into being. The region is managed by Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) and has been carefully planned and chalked out to be developed into a city with world class infrastructure. A habitat is complete only when the supporting infrastructure is in place. Greater Noida West at present is in the introduction phase of its product life cycle that is promising a rapid paced growth, and it is quite evident considering the work done on the infrastructure front by the authority. The region that it is today has been a tremendous work over the last one decade. In the upcoming 5-10 years, this region will be something to reckon with. Sound infrastructure is complete only when connectivity is well planned and here also, Greater Noida West scores quite well due to its strategic connectivity from its neighbouring regions.
Commenting on the region’s future prospects, Avneesh Sood, Director, Eros Group says, “Sound infrastructure is the key to successful realty growth of a region. If we look at the real estate case studies of regions like Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon and Ghaziabad; all of them today stand tall in NCR’s real estate due to their stunning infrastructure. Greater Noida West is attracting the focus of every home buyer and the reasons are obvious. Connectivity is the biggest concern of a home buyer while choosing a locality. In this regard, Greater Noida West is up to the mark by running parallel to a number of sectors of Noida and is well connected to Ghaziabad and NH 24. The upcoming FNG expressway also adds immense significance to the connectivity of the region.”
