Neharpar,  Greater Faridabad - the land of the hopefuls, has been hailed and promoted as the next hot destination in NCR by real estate gurus, builders, authorities and media, promised as the biggest and largest upcoming residential colony in the NCR region after Gurgaon and Noida. After this virgin tract of land was discovered and authorized for residential population in the last decade, there has been frenzied and rampant construction of high rise apartments and residential colonies by real estate builders, luring and enticing customers/ investors with significantly lower prices than other competing and upcoming regions, promising an upscale and higher standard of living and plush societies with substantially lower cost of living. This has been further fuelled by reports in media praising Neharpar as a great potential, a rising star in real estate.

With high hopes and aspirations to own an affordable home in the NCR region, thousands of middle class end-users and investors invested in the area, putting in all their life’s hard earned money, a common man already overburdened with high interest rates and increasing inflation, but brave enough to dream and aspire to have his own home.

Investors in Greater FARIDABAD: Investors in Greater Faridabad have threatened to take to the streets, protesting what they allege are inordinate delays in providing basic infrastructure in the area.
Meanwhile, the hunger strike by farmers continued for the seventh straight day on Sunday. Farmers in Faridabad are on hunger strike since August 30, demanding more compensation for their land, to be acquired for development of Greater Faridabad.

Some of the investors in the Nehar Par area -betterknown as Greater Faridabad -have decided to launch an agitation against Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) authorities for inordinate delays in the development of Greater Faridabad. Some investors working with different private concerns had visited the Hindustan Times office in Faridabad on Saturday, expressing concern at the delay in development of Nehar Par. The group had earlier held a meeting in Delhi and decided to launch an agitation against HUDA for not laying roads and sewer lines in Greater Faridabad.

“We hold HUDA responsible for the mess in Greater Faridabad,“ said Jayanta, member of an online group of real-estate owners in Greater Faridabad.

“We have invested our hard earned money in Nehar Par area for owing a house to live in. However, this now seems like a distant dream in the absence of the basic infrastructure in the area,“ Jayanta, under whose chairmanship the meeting was held on Saturday, told Hindustan Times.

“So we have decided to hold a protest demonstration outside the HUDA office in Faridabad, for inordinate delays in providing basic infrastructure facilities in Greater Faridabad very soon,“ Jayanta added. “Due to lack of even basic infrastructure facilities like roads, water, sewerage system, no progress is taking place in the Nehar Par area,“ Dheeraj Jain, member of Greater Faridabad Residents Association said.

“This is an area in which scores of people have invested their hard-earned money,“ Jain added. Jain was part of the delegation that visited the Hindustan Times office in Faridabad.

Meanwhile, farmers from the area continued their hunger strike on Sunday.

The development work in Greater Faridabad is likely start after August 29, senior officials have said.

"The issue of compensation to farmers is expected to be resolved by August 29 after which we may start acquiring the land," said Arvind Malhan, estates officer of Haryana Urban Development Authority, Faridabad.

Though Haryana Urban Development Authority created new sectors in the Neharpar area, lack of land for laying of roads and sewer lines had hampered development in the area despite many high-rises coming up there. Haryana Urban Development Authority officials said they require about 1,068 acres for laying of roads in newly carved 75 to 89 sectors in Greater Faridabad.

The land was to be acquired in the villages such as Kherikalla, Batola, Chotikheri, Faridpur, Fajupur, Neemka, Mirzapur, Badoli, Prehladpur, Budena, Baselva, Badshahpur, Rewajpur, Tikawli, Palwali and Bhupani.
However, in April, 19 villages protested against state government's decision to acquire their land.

The villagers said the compensation offered was very less. Satpal Narwat, convenor of Kissan Sangarsh Samiti, said they were being offered R 24 lakh per acre where as the circle rate was much higher. "Our protests forced the state government to look into the compensation issue afresh," Narwat said.

"Senior Haryana Urban Development Authority officials visited some of thevillages on Tuesday for survey," Narwat said.
The villagers had also approached Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in this connection.
