Highlights – Gurgaon Master Plan 2031
The Gurgaon-Manesar Urban Complex, which is known for Automobile Industries, Modern Commercial Malls, Towers of Cyber Parks and Software Development, is situated on prime location on National Highway Number 8, only at a distance of 4 kilometres from the Indira Gandhi International Airport and is well linked with all capitals of the world through airways. Gurgaon has emerged as a new International city. Many multinational companies have set up their corporate offices, software development centers, manufacturing units and other businesse in Gurgaon and Manesar.
The availability of high level infrastructure of Airways, Railways, Highways, world famed medical and educational institutions in its close proximity at National Capital of Delhi have become the main factors of attraction for international companies for setting up their business at Gurgaon. In order to meet the demands of foreign investors and also to set up hi-tech non-polluting industrial units, the Haryana Government initially with the collaboration of Japanese entrepreneurs started setting up Industrial Model Township at Manesar in 1992 through Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation. The said Corporation has developed about 700 hectares land at Manesar and now the developed land is being made available to all entrepreneurs of the world including India.
The Haryana Urban Development Authority in public sector and licensed colonizers in private sector through Town and Country Planning Department have also played prime role in achieving planned development in Gurgaon – Manesar Urban Complex. The Haryana Urban Development Authority and the licensed colonizers collectively have developed about 8000 hectares land for residential, commercial, institutional and industrial purposes to meet the increasing demand of the public.
The areas of Gurgaon-Manesar Urban Complex which have so far been developed in public and private sector including existing town and village abadies would accommodate 22 lacs population. In order to cater to the future demand of Gurgaon-Manesar Urban Complex an additional area of 22957 hectares has been added in the form of urbanisable area for the said complex to accommodate 20.50 lacs additional population. Thus, the total urbanisable area of Gurgaon- Manesar Urban Complex would accommodate 42.50 lacs population by 2031 AD.
Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex – 2021 development plan was published on 5th February, 2007 for a projected population of 37 lacs and with a population density of 80 PPA (persons per acre). Later, it was decided to increase the sector density from 80 PPA to 100 PPA and from 100 PPA to 120 PPA in all the Development Plans of the towns/ cities in the State. Also, it was observed that the sector roads leading from sectors-58/61, 59/60, 61/62, 60/63, 62/65, 63/64, 65/66 and sectors 64/67 were ending abruptly. Accordingly, it was proposed to improve the road network of these sectors. Besides, it was observed that a Nallah (Kost) passed through sector-58 to 66 in a haphazard manner. A technical Committee conducted a study and suggested for realigning the nallah along Southern Peripheral Road. The Development Plan was revised for the perspective year of 2025 AD after following prescribed procedure. Resultantly, there was no substantive change in the urbanizable area or land use plan except marginal increase in the urbanizable area of the Development Plan to the extent of only 1.18% (approx.).
In the Development Plans of 2021 and 2025, a large area measuring 4570 hectares was earmarked for setting up of SEZs. The scenario regarding setting up of SEZs underwent sea change since notification of these Plans and virtually there were no more takers for SEZs. Even the already notified SEZs were not being implemented and resultantly, the landowners of such land were demanding replanning of their land so that they were able to utilize the same for some other purpose. Therefore, on a reference received from the Industries Department, the exercise to replan these areas was initiated. This was the primary reason for initiating revision of the Final Development Plan of 2025 AD. Finally, the Gurgaon-Manesar Urban Complex – 2031 AD final development plan (Gurgaon Master Plan 2031) was published on 15 Nov 2012 to cater to a population of 42.5 lacs.
Proposed land uses
The extent of various land uses as proposed in the Development Plan are given as below: –
|Sr. No.||Land use||Area (in Hectares)|
|4||Transport and Communication||4428|
|6||Public and semi public||2027|
Description of Land Uses
In order to cater to the projected population of 42.50 lacs as per Gurgaon Master PLan 2031, an area of 16021 hectares has been reserved for residential purpose. The Haryana Urban Development Authority and licensed colonizers have already developed residential area of 8000 hectares in various residential sectors of this Development Plan. The aforesaid residential areas developed in public and private sectors would accommodate population of 20.00 lacs. The existing town and village abadies falling within the urbanisable area are also accommodating 2 lacs population. The additional residential area proposed in the Development Plan would cater to the residential demand of rest of the 20.50 lacs projected population. The residential areas proposed in the Development Plan shall be developed on neighbourhood concept by making provision of all community facilities and services within the sectors on an average net residential density of 250 persons per hectare. Keeping in view the scarcity of water in District Gurgaon, henceforth, endeavour shall be made to develop all the sectors / colonies on zero discharge concept for encouraging the use of recycled water.
In sector-68, a pocket of approximately 50 hectares of land with density of 1125 persons per hectare has been reserved paving the way for construction of smaller flats for providing housing to low and medium income group.
In order to absorb the impact of increased density on the environment of the sectors, it is proposed that:-
- The additional area for infrastructure shall be provided in the already planned/developed residential sectors to meet out the requirement of the additional population.
- The minimum width of the roads in a residential colony/sector shall not be less than 12 metres.
- The minimum area for parks/open spaces in a residential colony/sector shall be planned in such a manner that it shall meet the minimum norm of 2.5 square metres per person.
In addition, so as to provide affordable housing to the public, Government is contemplating issuance of a separate policy in which not only upper sale price will be fixed but the entire allotment will also be done by the Government.
In the Development Plan, an area of 1616 hectares land has been reserved for commercial purpose, out of which Haryana Urban Development Authority has developed 480 hectares land.

The Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation and Haryana Urban Development Authority have already developed an area of 1246 hectares in the said complex. The new industrial areas have been proposed along expressway adjacent to Industrial Modern Township Manesar.
