Haryana government's sub-regional plan to accommodate Gurgaon's increasing population
With Gurgaon scaling new heights day by day, so it's population. Haryana Government notified a sub-regional plan foreseeing that the district will be home to a majority of the state's population residing in cities.

There are about 15 lakh people currently living in the Millennium City. It is expected that by 2021, the population is likely to go up to 30 lakh. Likewise, in the adjoining NCR district, Faridabad's total population of 18 lakh is likely to grow to 28 lakh by 2021.

The sub-regional plan has made provisions for more power supply, highways, a wider network of roads and better transport to meet the growing needs of the cities. The plan's main motive is to increase the use of public transport. Also, one of the objectives is to provide a suitable public transport system in NCR to reduce vehicular pollution and to shift people from private to public transport.

Apart from road transport, the state has also planned to set up small airports at Jhajjar, Sonipat and Rewari, as proposed in the integrated transportation plan for NCR. The mentioned Airports are under the direct influence zone of Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi. The state has also planned to expand various regional expressways to four lanes by 2017 and further expanding them to six lanes by 2022.

They include the Gurgaon- Dharuhera, Gurgaon- Faridabad, Delhi- Panipat and Rohtak- Rewari expressways. A rail link between Gurgaon and Jhajjar has also been proposed, while the government plans to extend the Jhajjar- Gurgaon rail line to Faridabad.
