DDA invites suggestions on development corridors
The draft TOD policy, guidelines and influence zones have also been put in public domain so that suggestions and objections can be filed with the DDA 45 days from the date of issue of the notice, December 21.
According to the notice, specific development plans for any area falling in the above corridors will be submitted and permission of DDA shall be obtained and only then will any fresh development be taken up by private developers. This is, however, not applicable to any development already permitted under present laws.
As per the policy, TOD is essentially any development, macro or micro, that is focused around a transit mode, and facilitates complete ease of access to the transit facility, thereby inducing people to walk and use public transport over private vehicles. It aims to reduce private vehicle dependency and induce public transport use. It aims to provide easy public transport access within walking distance.
“A maximum of 2,000 m wide belt on both sides the Mass Rapid Transit System is designated as TOD influence zone, identified in the combined zonal development plans of Delhi for public notification,” a DDA official said.
