Elections in India are fought on a variety of issues. They’re fought on issues related to corruption, communalism, price-rise, inflation, power etc. But other than a few municipal elections, public transport has seldom been considered a major election issue. And that has always surprised me, because according to a survey conducted by the Ministry of Urban Development, the most important challenge facing a city’s infrastructure is not environmental issues or education, it is transportation. A good public transport system is a sign of a growing economy. One that encourages the reduction of cars on the road, greenhouse gas emissions, public infrastructure, and public planning. It connects communities, encourages the mobilisation of people, gets people out of their homes to go to places and spend, boost the economy, have a life

It is often amusing to find environmental campaigns exhorting Indian citizens to not use their personal vehicles and use public transport. That works in a country where public transport is efficient, reliable and comfortable. In a country like India, given the shoddy state of public transport except in a few metropolitan cities, people would hardly want to use public transportation. Given half a chance, they’d jump at funding their own private means of commuting. And that is why, at the first sight of economic progress, most of us buy a personal vehicle, often paying heavy EMIs in the process.

With cars and motorbikes dominating India’s roads – leading to pollution, congestion and road traffic accidents – a new campaign has been launched to promote sustainable transport in the country.

Neharpar,  Greater Faridabad - the land of the hopefuls, has been hailed and promoted as the next hot destination in NCR by real estate gurus, builders, authorities and media, promised as the biggest and largest upcoming residential colony in the NCR region after Gurgaon and Noida. After this virgin tract of land was discovered and authorized for residential population in the last decade, there has been frenzied and rampant construction of high rise apartments and residential colonies by real estate builders, luring and enticing customers/ investors with significantly lower prices than other competing and upcoming regions, promising an upscale and higher standard of living and plush societies with substantially lower cost of living. This has been further fuelled by reports in media praising Neharpar as a great potential, a rising star in real estate.

With high hopes and aspirations to own an affordable home in the NCR region, thousands of middle class end-users and investors invested in the area, putting in all their life’s hard earned money, a common man already overburdened with high interest rates and increasing inflation, but brave enough to dream and aspire to have his own home.

We, Greater Faridabad residents are in dire need of a proper public transport system in the city. We request you kind intervention to start city bus service

1) Ballabgarh Bus Stand to Badarpur Border Metro Station via Greater Faridabad and

2) Gurgaon-Faridabad bus service  via Greater Faridabad ( both AC & NonAC).
