Factors for Growth in the Past
Development of Madan Mohan Malviya Marg and Maharaja Agrasen Marg propelled the emergence of residential and commercial pockets in this region. Sector-16’s proximity to well-developed cities such as Delhi, Noida, and Ghaziabad also played a vital role in its growth.
Overcrowding and high property prices were the two main reasons that drove the working class out of the cramped spaces of Delhi and lured them into relocating to areas like Sector-16, which offered affordable properties and a calm, traffic-free environment.
