Considering the economic growth potential of Chandigarh & the surrounding areas under GMADA in the coming years, it is anticipated that the economic growth will drive urbanization and can spur further growth. With this growing urbanization and congestion of existing cities, GMADA conceived the idea of developing a new independent and self-sustaining city to cater to this spillover of the projected growth of Chandigarh and Mohali over the next 20 years. GMADA has mapped out a vision towards a city of excellence for the greater Mohali area and under this vision the township of Mullanpur is envisaged to rise as a distinctive and sustainable playground of the Greater Mohali Area that will enhance quality living and manage the overall growth. With this in mind, GMADA in 2007, appointed Jurong Consultants Private Ltd. Singapore to complete a comprehensive integrated master plan for the new township of Mullanpur. Being in vicinity of Chandigarh and proposed with a world class infrastructure, this Local Planning Area (LPA) has been renamed “New Chandigarh”, in the Punjab Regional & Town Planning & Development Board meeting held on 28-5-2013.
