History Of Noida
In the early years of the 8th decade of 20th century, the Government of India apprehended that the pace at which Delhi was expanding would lead to real entropy if not checked on time. So they figured out that new residential as well as industrial quarters need to be developed around Delhi so as to lessen the saddle of the swift advancement from the capital. The two areas that were incepted under this concept were Gurgaon and Noida. On 17th April 1976 Noida was formerly instituted under the UP Industrial Area Development Act as a part of the urbanization thrust during the Emergency Period.
