Gzb authority to take over planning of village land near expressways

The NCR planning board has directed the Ghaziabad development authority (GDA) to acquire 500 metres of land each alongside the Delhimeerut Expressway (DME) and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE), to protect the two expressways from unplanned development. Officials identified 500 metres on both sides of the two expressways, which will fall under the jurisdiction of the development authorities, after the notification. This is to ensure that no unauthorised construction, encroachment and any unplanned activity takes place in the vicinity of the two expressways.
