Yamuna expressway, a 165 Km long and 100 meters wide expressway, is India’s longest six-lane controlled access expressway stretch that provides much-needed connectivity to Delhi-Greater Noida-Agra region. Six districts notified under Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Area (YEIDA) where most of the development & industrialization will take place include Gautam Budh Nagar, Bulandshahar, Aligarh, Hathras, Mathura, and Agra. Greater Noida (Gautam Budh Nagar) has already witnessed appreciable amount of investment from both public & private sector. Some of the critical reasons that surged commercial and residential projects in Greater Noida & other areas along the Yamuna expressway are discussed below.
Swift Infrastructure Development
World-class infrastructure is at the heart of Yamuna expressway development. With excellent roads, connectivity to major NCR cities, intelligent transportation systems, ample power supply (many additional power augmentation and generation plans cleared/in-process), sufficient water sources availability, development of gas grid to cover major industrial areas, metro connectivity (proposed from Greater Noida to YEIDA’s Sector 20), and development of international airport (in Jewar, Greater Noida), it is quite evident that investing in the YEIDA area is going to be highly profitable.
Industrialization in a Quick & Planned Way
The Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) that includes six Indian states (Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Gujrat) will cover two nodes within UP namely Dadri-Noida-Ghaziabad & Meerut-Muzaffarnagar. DMIC will turn these two areas into investment and industrial hub that will further attract investment in the YEIDA area. Work for Yamuna SEZ is already in motion that will boost the industrialization process.
Booming IT Sector
The Tech Zone in the Yamuna expressway area encompasses 650 acres of integrated IT park that houses IT companies such as NIIT, Unitech, Stellar, Wipro, Ansals, and many more. This Tech Zone is going to provide employment to thousands of IT professionals and help the area to attract investment from various industries.
Tourism opportunities available in YEIDA area have added value to the residential and commercial projects in Greater Noida and other adjoining areas. The Formula One track, international cricket stadium (at Jaypee Sports City), and Night Safari (will be the fourth of its kind in the world) are some tourist places that will further increase the popularity of YEIDA region.
Apart from all these compelling reasons, Gautam Buddha University in Greater Noida has led to the surge of residential projects in the YEIDA region. The development of the Yamuna expressway area is going at a great pace and long-term investment here could be extremely profitable.
