Rationale
National Capital Region (NCR) is a unique example of inter-state regional development planning for a region, having a total area of over 33500 Sq Kms spanning over 15 districts in the states of U.P, Haryana, and Rajasthan and National Capital Territory of Delhi, with the Nation Capital as its core. The National Capital Region (NCR) in India was constituted under the NCRPB Act, 1985; the key rationale was to promote balanced and harmonized development of the Region, and to contain haphazard and unplanned urban growth by channelising the flow and direction of economic growth (on which the urban phenomenon feeds) along more balanced and spatially-oriented paths.
