‘Peace­ful and con­ges­tion-free’

HT Estates - - HTESTATES -

Over the last 33 years or so that I have been liv­ing here, Preet Vi­har has wit­nessed a sea change. It came into be­ing some­time in 1978, when DDA al­lot­ted plots in the area. Preet Vi­har is di­vided into seven blocks and each block has its own park and mar­ket. One of the big­gest sell­ing points of Preet Vi­har, in my opin­ion, is its lo­ca­tion. Lo­cated in prox­im­ity to some of the key ar­eas of Delhi, in­clud­ing Con­naught Place, it is well-con­nected to ar­eas in the east and west of Delhi, all the way up to Dwarka through the Blue Line of the Delhi /metro.

The area has all the ba­sic ameni­ties in place. So f a r, we have not had prob­lems with wa­ter or elec­tric­ity. It is not as con­gested as some other parts of Delhi. In fact, the res­i­den­tial ar­eas branch­ing off the main road are rather peace­ful and calm. You will not find apart­ments in this part of the city. Most of the de­vel­op­ment is in the form of in­de­pen­dent houses and builder floors. Al­though the area has its own shop­ping com­plexes, one can al­ways go to the other mar­kets in the vicin­ity, like Laxmi Na­gar (which is just two metro stops away) or CP, which is less than 10 km from here.

There are s ome good schools and col­leges in the vicin­ity – in a ra­dius of, say, 5km or 6km. The area has good hos­pi­tals as well. It is one of the safer and con­ve­nient lo­ca­tions in Delhi. Which is why it has grown into a sought-af­ter res­i­den­tial area. The only is­sue is the traf­fic sit­u­a­tion, es­pe­cially on Vikas Marg, near the metro sta­tion and com­mer­cial ar­eas. But with some reg­u­la­tion, it can be ad­dressed.
