Acquisition of Land initiated by NHAI for building of Delhi portion of Dwarka Expressway
In a major step towards starting the construction of the Delhi section of Dwarka Expressway, officially known as the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), on Thursday, started taking possession of land in a 1.25-km stretch between Delhi and Haryana where no public land was available.
The NHAI initiated takeover of 25 hectares, comprising three private farmhouses, necessary for construction of the 9.6-km Delhi stretch of the 27.6-km-long expressway.
“After the publication of Section 3(D) of the National Highway Act, the land belongs to the Central government. We started the process of taking over the three farmhouses, which would be completed by Friday evening,” said a senior NHAI official, who confirmed the development but preferred to remain anonymous as he not authorized to speak to the media.
The expressway, which is being built as a bypass of the NH8 that cuts through Gurugram, will connect Shiv Murti on Delhi Gurugram Expressway with Kherki Daula, also on the same highway, via Dwarka, Bijwasan and New Palam Vihar. The NPR will also pass through a number of new sectors in Gurugram.
The Dwarka Expressway, which was first conceived in 2006, is divided in four parts. The first stretch would be 5-km-long, from Shiv Murti to rail underbridge near Sector 21, Dwarka. The second stretcg would be 4.5-km-long, between rail underbridge and Delhi-Haryana border on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway. The third would be 10.2-km-long, starting from the border to rail overbridge in Basai. This stretch will pass through sectors 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 109, 110, 111, 112, and 113 in Gurugram. The fourth stretch would start from the rail overbridge and end at the intersection of the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) near Kherki Daula, covering 7.9km.

Buying non-resident’s flat involves TDS risks
As income tax sleuths intend to keep a close eye on property purchases from non-residents to ensure buyers have correctly deducted tax at source, extra vigilance is required. If there’s no tax deducted at source (TDS), or wrongly deducted, the I-T department takes action against the buyer and not the nonresident seller. In addition to interest and penalties, the I-T Act prescribes imprisonment of 3 months to 7 years.

Will clear Dwarka Expressway land by June-end: Huda
Huda has promised to remove remaining hurdles coming in the alignment of Dwarka Expressway by the end of June, even as it rejected applications of eight oustees, whose structures still stand on the way, for alternative plots, on Friday, saying they are not eligible for it.
Posted On : 11-06-2018 15:42:39
During the day, Huda officials held a draw for allotment of alternative plots to a total of 24 oustees. Sixteen of them were given alternative plots — 10 in Sector 37C and six in Sector 110A. However, eight oustees were deemed ineligible.
As many as 64 oustees have already been provided plots in Sector 110A, following a directive from the Punjab and Haryana high court last month.

The Punjab and Haryana high court on Tuesday directed Huda
to allot alternative plots to 72 oustees — all GPA and SPA holders — within two weeks, clearing the decks for the development authority to demolish the remaining structures coming in the alignment of Dwarka Expressway.
Hearing a petition filed by Puran Singh, the high court ordered the Huda administrator of Gurugram to hold a meeting with the property owners with general power of attorney (GPA) and special power of attorney (SPA) by next Tuesday (June 5), and complete the process of allotment within another week thereafter (by June 12).
Even, Huda, in its affidavit, claimed it had no objection to giving alternative plots to the GPA and SPA oustees to ensure speedy completion of the expressway project. Once these oustees get possession of the alternative plots, Huda can remove the remaining structures — currently only around 40 are left — and hand over the land to NHAI to complete the expressway, which is already delayed by more than a decade. Last Saturday, Huda teams had gone to raze 68 buildings coming in the way of the expressway in New Palam Vihar
but had to stall the drive midway after the high court issued a stay order. However, by the time the officials received the order, around 31 houses were already demolished.

The urban development authority, which has to hand over land to the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), on Friday served notices to the occupants, asking them to vacate the premises within 24 hours. The notices were issued under sub-section (2) of Section 18 of the Huda Act, 1977.

Plan to run TRAM on DWARKA EXPRESSWAY
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is exploring the option of putting a tram or light rail transport system along the Urban Extension Road-II, which will connect NH-1, NH-10 and NH-8, and the upcoming Dwarka Expressway. The road stretches have a combined length of about 83 km.
Posted On : 05-05-2018 17:35:03
“The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is providing us 90 metres right of way (RoW) for building the UER-II. We will need 60 metres for constructing the road and another 20 metres for greenery. So, we have another 10 metres available for laying track for tram or any other mass public transport facility,” an NHAI official said. Similarly, enough land will be available along the Dwarka Expressway.
Officials said the NHAI will soon start a feasibility study to find the traffic demand and which mode of light rail transit will be viable for this stretch. They added that planning such a mode of transport would be timely.
DISTANCE BETWEEN WEST DELHI AND GURUGRAM SHRINKS
Delhi Metro’s INA station will become an important interchange point for commuters when the second section of the Pink Line opens in June. For one, the interchange point there between the Pink Line and the Yellow Line will shrink the distance between west Delhi and Gurgaon, which means people from areas such as Naraina, Mayapuri, Rajouri Garden and Punjabi Bagh can get on the train to the Haryana city at INA, instead of taking a long detour via Rajiv Chowk.

23 km Elevated section planned on Dwarka expressway
Of the total road length of 29km of the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), which is crucial to decongesting the Gurgaon and New Delhi and offering hassle-free commute to long-distance travellers, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) plans to make 23km elevated.
“In addition to the two railway overbridges (ROBs) on the entire stretch from Shiv Murti on NH-48 to a spot near the Kherki Daula Toll, 23.12km of the road will be elevated. The elevated road will merge with the surface road for entry and exit purposes only. The purpose of the elevated road is to provide hassle-free commute to distant commuters,” said Udeep Singhal, NHAI project director for the NPR.
The NPR, which is more popularly known as the Dwarka Expressway, is crucial to offering high speed connectivity to commercial vehicles that form a large chunk of the traffic that is forced to cut through the Delhi city to access other states.

Capital gain exemption available even if housing loan is used for new house: ITAT
The Kolkata bench of the Income-tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) has held that investment-linked capital gains tax exemption, which is available on purchase of a new house, cannot be denied merely because the taxpayer has taken a housing loan.
Posted On : 12-04-2018 17:48:28
Capital gains are taxable under the Income-tax (I-T) Act. If on sale of a residential house (held for at least two years), the taxpayer makes a profit, then such profit is treated as a long term capital gain (LTCG). This gain is taxable at 20% with an adjustment for inflation, referred to as indexation benefit.
Section 54 of the I-T Act provides for investment-linked capital gains tax exemption. If an investment is made in another house in India, within the stipulated period of time, then the ‘cost of the new house’ is deducted and only the balance component of the LTCGs is taxable.
