Lutyens Bungalow Zone to shift by 5.13 sq km

New Delhi, 29 August: The most desired Lutyens Bungalow Zone (LBZ) in New Delhi may shrink. The Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) has proposed to reduce the LBZ area by 5.13 sq km.

According to sources, as submitted by the DUAC on the request of the Urban Development Ministry, the LBZ area is proposed to be reduced by 5.13 sq km to 23.60 sq km from the present 28.73 sq km. Areas such as Jor Bagh, Golf Links, Sunder Nagar, Bengali Market, Ashoka Road, Mandir Marg, Panchsheel Marg, Sardar Patel Marg and Chanakyapuri shall be removed from the zone.

When it was first demarcated in 1988, the LBZ covered 25.88 sq km. Areas such as Babar Road, Bengali Market, Sundar Nagar, Jor Bagh, Panchsheel Marg, certain parts of Chanakyapuri were added to it in 2003.

However, premises of the Supreme Court of India, which was deleted from LBZ in 2003 is now proposed to be included again. LBZ was first demarcated in 1988, but it was only in 2003 that these areas were added to the protected zone.

Property prices are expected to come down in the area as more residences will be carved out of the current big bungalows. This is the first time that a public scrutiny has been allowed on such a decision.
