Beautiful Delhi - Visit Again and Again

Beautiful Delhi

Hindustani articulation: [d̪ɪlliː] Dilli; Devanāgarī: दिल्ली), formally the National Capital Territory of Delhi, is a city and the capital domain of the Republic of India.[5] It is circumscribed by Haryana on three sides and by Uttar Pradesh toward the east. It is the most far reaching city in India—around 1,484 square kilometers (573 sq mi). It has a populace of around 25 million, making it the second most crowded city after Mumbai and most crowded urban agglomeration in India and third biggest urban area[6] in the world.[7][8] Such is the way of urban development in Delhi that its development has extended past the NCT to join towns in neighboring states and at its biggest degree can check a populace of around 25 million occupants starting 2014. After Mumbai, Delhi has the second-most astounding number of very rich people and moguls among all urban areas in India.

Delhi has been ceaselessly occupied since the sixth century BCE. Through the vast majority of its history, Delhi has served as a capital of different kingdoms and realms. It has been caught, stripped and modified a few times, especially amid the medieval period, and present day Delhi is a group of various urban areas spread over the metropolitan district.

Delhi and its urban locale have been given the uncommon status of National Capital Region (NCR) under the Constitution of India's 69th Amendment Act of 1991. The NCR incorporates the neighboring urban communities of Faridabad, Gurgaon, Noida, Ghaziabad, Neharpar (Greater Faridabad), Greater Noida, Bahadurgarh, Sonepat, Panipat, Karnal, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Rewari, Baghpat, Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Alwar, Bharatpur and other adjacent towns. A union region, the political organization of the NCT of Delhi today all the more nearly looks like that of a condition of India, with its own governing body, high court and an official chamber of clergymen headed by a Chief Minister. New Delhi is together regulated by the government of India and the nearby administration of Delhi, and is the capital of the NCT of Delhi.

Delhi Metro phase 4 approval stuck, delay may raise cost by crores

The Delhi Rail Corporation (DMRC) has warned the Delhi government that the cost of phase 4 extension will shoot up by crores if it did not approve the project plan in time.
The DMRC has been seeking the approval for over a year, with the phase-3 construction in its last leg of completion.
But the government wants DMRC to focus on rural areas in phase 4, sources said. “The first detailed project report (DPR) was submitted almost 18 months ago. A few months later, the government asked us to prepare the DPR for a route from Dwarka to Kanjhawla,” said a DMRC official, requesting anonymity.
DMRC told them the route should be included in phase 5 as there was no scope for development on it, he said.
“Since the government insisted, we prepared a DPR for it. The route will have 18 stations. Still, the government hasn’t replied. This will ultimately lead to a rise in the cost,” the official said.
The corporation said contractors, currently engaged in phase-3 work, will move out of the city soon. If the tenders are released after that, they will quote a higher amount to return to the city.
“We must award the contract before work for phase 3 ends to keep the contractor in the city. Once they move out, they will ask us to pay for the transportation of heavy machine they will be carrying,” the official added.
DMRC estimated `55,000 crore as cost for phase-4 construction and an additional `4,000 crore for the new line proposed by the Delhi government. Officials were unable to say by how much the cost will shoot up if the project got delayed, but estimated it would be several crores.
