Plan To Keep 40km Vikaspuri-Noida Stretch Signal Free

First Time In 25 Years; June 15 Deadline, Work To Cost 12Cr. The cleaning of the Okhla barrage has finally begun after 25 years.

Greater Noida: After missing several deadlines, the Yamuna Expressway is finally set to open around June 15.

A full bench of the Allahabad High Court on Monday upheld its judgement quashing land acquisition in some villages of Gautam Buddh Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh for development of Noida, Greater Noida and Noida Extension and ordered greater compensation for landowners.

The bench comprising justices Ashok Bhushan, S.U. Khan and V.K. Shukla passed the order while turning down review petitions of Noida Authority and Greater Noida Authority and a number of farmers who were dissatisfied with the judgement delivered by a three-judge bench on October 21, 2011.

Uttar Pradesh PWD and Irrigation minister Shivpal Yadav has issued directives to clear the Yamuna floodplain land in Gautam Budh Nagar.

One of the pet projects of Mulayam Singh as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, five years earlier, was the 7,480-Mw Dadri power project. It was also Reliance Power promoter Anil Ambani's dream project, but for some time now, the project has fallen off the radar of the developer.

Dadri got its initial blessing from Singh in 2003. Later, it ran into a number of troubles. The most significant one being fuel supply. The size of the project was expanded to 3,500 Mw on paper, though. Not much could move on the ground, as gas was supposed to be supplied from the Krishna-Godavari block operated by Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries.

After the high court dismissed the petitions against the dumping ground, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has started construction of the solid waste management plant on the 14-acre land a

The amount and intensity of runoff at catchment scale are largely determined by the presence of impervious land cover types, which are predominant in an urbanized area. This paper examines the impact of different methods for estimating impervious surface cover on the prediction of peak discharges as determined by a fully distributed rainfall-runoff model (WetSpa). The study of River Yamuna and Hindon basin area shows detailed information on the spatial distribution of impervious surfaces, as obtained/calibrated from remotely sensed data.
