Transit oriented policy: DDA to develop 12 transport hubs
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has identified 12 transport hubs, which will be developed under the Transit Oriented Policy (TOD), opening up real estate developments in the capital.
The authority recently approved the modification to the notified TOD Policy in Delhi. In December 2020, preliminary approval for the revised TOD policy was given, and after that, public notice was issued for inviting objections and suggestions.
The modified TOD policy will now be forwarded to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) for its approval and final notification.
The hubs identified by the DDA are:
Anand Vihar Multi-modal Transit Hub
- Dwarka Sector-8 to Sector-14 metro stations corridor
- Dwarka Sector-21 metro station
- Haiderpur Badli Mor metro station (Mukarba Chowk)
- Jangpura RRTS station
- Karkardooma pink and blue line metro stations (taken together)
- Kashmere Gate Multi-modal Transit Hub
- Mukundpur metro station
- New Delhi Railway station (NDLS)
- Nizamuddin/ Sarai Kale Khan Multi-modal Transit Hub
- Rohini Sector-18 metro station
- Trilokpuri metro station
The TOD Policy for Delhi was notified by the Central Government on 24 December 2020, as a part of the Master Plan of Delhi-2021.
DDA in consultation with major mass transit agencies like Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), Indian Railways (IR), Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS), National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), and real estate developers of National Capital Region (NCR), proposed modifications in the existing TOD policy.
Apart from the metro and railway stations, the revised TOD policy will also enable node based transit-oriented development around upcoming modes of public transit like BRTS/ LRT/ Metro Lite/ Metro-Neo, making the TOD policy of Delhi future-ready.
