The city of Faridabad will be directly linked to the KGP, for this, a detailed action plan will be prepared and submitted soon to NHAI.

He said that the area of Faridabad across the canal will now be known as Greater Faridabad. Along with this, the entire border of Faridabad district which is 741 square kilometers long, which includes all rural and urban areas have been included in the FMDA. Special attention will be given to developing this area. He said that earlier many institutions like HSVP, Municipal Corporation, PWD, and Smart City used to do development work in Faridabad. Now all development works will come under FMDA and an Integrated Command and Control Center will also be created to coordinate the work.

The Chief Minister Sh. Manohar Lal said that Faridabad district is highly populated and vast in area in which 179 sectors have been developed.
