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.
