2012 saw 2-year extension to unfinished projects under JNNURM


The year also saw preparation of plans for Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) being accorded priority. These corridors are the Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat corridor, the

Delhi-Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar and another one between Delhi- Ghaziabad and Meerut.

The ministry further cleared the decks for the Delhi government to regularise 917 unauthorised colonies during the year. Around 40 lakh residents in these colonies are likely to benefit from the regularisation which would entail government spending on civic infrastructure. The Delhi government had completed all the ground work for regularisation of the colonies.

The year also witnessed four technical committees of the Delhi Development Authority engaged in reviewing four broad areas of the Delhi Master Plan. Top public servants, town planners, urban designers and architects offered their views on the broad ideas that the improved Master Plan seeks to incorporate.
