This plot scheme was a hit in the NCR and other part of India due to location advantage.
Yamuna Expressway Authority has given two land parcels of 500 hectares each to the Jaypee Group with all rights for development in lieu of which the Jaypee Group would construct the Yamuna Expressway.
The Expressway was awarded on BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) basis by Yamuna Expressway Industrial Authority (YEIDA), to be executed with full responsibility for financing, land acquisition, design, construction, and operation & Maintenance.
