After a long haul, the Dwarka Expressway hit the headlines on a positive note early this month. The Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has granted a National Highway status to the Expressway, at the Happening Haryana Summit 2016. This move will transfer the complete control of the expressway to National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), which will ensure a speedy completion to meet the final deadline of June 2017, as fixed by the state CM, Manohar Khattar. The completion of this Expressway will not only bestow momentum to current realty projects in the micro-market but also, ease the living for residents. Where this news is set to revive the realty market of Dwarka Expressway, Sobha Ltd has already started offering possession of its exclusive development of Sobha International City Presidential Villa.
