After the Punjab and Haryana High Court quashed the public interest litigation against it, the Haryana Government on Friday said that this has cleared the way for the multi-crore Gurugram Global City project, to be set up on the land owned by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) in Gurugram.
The court on Thursday quashed the last Public Interest Litigation filed by the Gram Panchayat Garauli Khurd, regarding 1080 acres of HSIIDC land. This decision has paved the way for the e-auction of land parcels in the Global City project being set up on 1003 acres of HSIIDC land.
An official spokesperson said that now it would be easier to execute the various activities related to this project.
“The Global City to be built in Gurugram is one of the major projects of the Government. Tenders for development works worth Rs 900 crore regarding the Global City have already been floated,” the spokesperson said.
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, after visiting the site, had said that the Global City would prove to be a milestone in the development of Haryana.
Describing Gurugram as an icon city on the global map, Khattar said that out of the 500 world’s Fortune companies, 400 have their offices here and that it has now become an international city.
He also said that the world’s largest jungle safari will also be developed in Gurugram and Nuh districts in the Aravalli mountain range on about 10,000 acres.
The official spokesperson said that 1003 acres of HSIIDC land in villages Khandsa, Narsinghpur, Mohammadpur Jharsa, Garauli Khurd and Garhi Harsaru in the Gurugram district is being used for the development of the mega project of Global City.
The HSIIDC is the developer of the Global City project. Road, water and other arrangements will be provided by HSIIDC. The construction of the plot is to be done by only those companies that have invested in this project. Plots in Global City would be auctioned on the mixed land format, he added.
