Connectivity is great but ...
Ihave been living in Tri Nagar since birth. In fact, my father grew up in the same locality. I am based out of Rampura, an erstwhile village in Tri Nagar which has undergone a major change. About 15 to 20 years ago, Tri Nagar was an agricultural village with acres of fields. These fields later gave way to residential colonies to accommodate the city’s growing migrant population. One can find many independent houses here and there are hardly any apartments in this area. It is common for builders and home-owners to get into joint ventures and modify or expand the existing structure, and put it up for sale. This has been the trend of real estate development in this belt.
The biggest plus point of Tri Nagar is the fact that it has not one, but three Metro stations in the vicinity – Keshav Puram, Ashok Park Main and Kanhaiya Nagar. Besides, it is well-connected to the rest of the city through feeder buses. The area has enough green cover in the form of parks developed by DDA, and the basic amenities - water, electricity, etc, are in place. Tri Nagar also has other facilities such as good schools and hospitals. It is not very far from Delhi University’s north campus either. There are two water treatment plants in the area.
While the overall security situation in Tri Nagar is not bad, there have, of late, been cases of chain snatching in the area. Another major problem here is encroachment, as a result of which there is no parking space. This is an issue across Delhi but it is more pronounced here. This has led to congestion and traffic chaos in Tri Nagar.
