Greater Noida

Greater Noida (GN) (Hindi: , Urdu: , transliteration: Ba a N ) is located in the Gautam Budh Nagar district of the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP). It is under the purview of the National Capital Region (NCR) of India. It is located about south-east of New Delhi and about south-east of Noida, one of the largest industrial townships in Asia.The city is very well connected with AGRA(The TAJ Nagari)by 6 lane Yamuna Expressway(earlier Taj Expressway).The Construction of 5th Night Safari in the world(rest 4 night safaris are in china, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia) which will showcase the wildlife in night, is under progress.

The development of Greater Noida is managed by the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA).[1] Greater Noida is a fast growing region, on a trajectory to be one of the largest industrial and education hubs of India.Greater Noida has got one of the best infrastructure in India besides Chandigarh and Bangalore and scores 10 out of 10 in terms of Cleanliness.City's 25 percent area is under the Green cover which makes this city so viable and fresh especially in the monsoon season.In monsoon,this city looks almost rejuvenated.



A Photo of Amar Shaheed Pt. Ram Prasad Bismil Udyan[2] In the early 1980s the Government of India realized that the rapid rate at which Delhi was expanding would result in chaos. So they planned to develop residential and industrial areas around the capital to reduce the burden of rapid development on the capital. The two areas which were developed were Gurgaon (across the border with Haryana) and Noida (across the border with Uttar Pradesh). As a planned expansion, Noida's infrastructure and utilities was carefully laid out. However, the 90s saw huge growth in the Indian economy, and migration to cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai exceeded planning estimates. Noida was developed to be able to accommodate population growth for 20 25 years. But, with the massive influx to Delhi, it was overloaded in just 15 years.

The Government of Uttar Pradesh then decided to incorporate the city of Greater Noida, as an extension to Noida, but with better planning incorporating the lessons learned from the Noida development. The idea was to create a world class city. The city was planned to be situated approximately 25 km from Noida. By including a railway station and an international airport, Greater Noida is intended to develop as an independent city. Initially, the city developed extremely rapidly but due to political and economic instability, the development slowed down appreciably. However, it has started to grow again, though at a more moderate pace.

Greater Noida is a planned township. Roads are wide with service lanes for every major road. The sectors are named by letters of the Greek alphabet. All cabling and utilities are run underground. Alpha, Beta and Gamma are the oldest sectors of this city. The present GNIDA office is situated in Gamma II sector just opposite to the historical village Rampur Jagir/Jahangir where the great revolutionary Pandit Ram Prasad Bismil lived for some time in the year 1919 when he was hidden underground after Mainpuri conspiracy. A park has also been named after him by the U.P. Government.

Recently there has been a spurt in the development of shopping malls and retail stores. Major retail chains such as Tata Croma, More Retail, Reliance Fresh, Reliance Footprints, Lilliput etc. have set up business in Greater Noida.


The demographics of Greater Noida, mainly consists of students, corporates and labour class workers(because of rapid construction work in the city). Students are mostly temporary residents who come mostly from other parts of Uttar Pradesh, but in some cases from far away places of India, and abroad. This is owing to the large number of colleges in this region.

A majority of the original population of Greater Noida consists of Gurjars, who were originally people belonging to the farmer and herder community of Gurjar. But largely due to the large amount of compensation they received when their land was acquired by government for industrial and development projects, the gurjars suddenly gained wealth.

The Gurjars are very famous in that region for being generosity, and the Bhati, Khari & Naagar Community especially had great power in Greater Noida. Gurjars have their strong hold in the region, in different fields like politics and business etc.
