The total length of this link is approximately.19.5 km, out of which the development work on 18-km stretch of NPR in Haryana portion has already been completed up to 16.5 kms, and work is apace on the remaining portion of the road in Haryana. The construction of Delhi portion through 80-meter wide road linking NPR with Dwarka is the main pending issue.

The proposal to connect Nelson Mandela T-point (Near Vasant Kunj Flyover) with Gurgaon-Mehrauli Road has been approved in Zone `J' of the Master Plan Delhi. Haryana had requested to expedite implementation of the already approved linkage.The DDA has informed that since this link is passing through a regional park, it is not feasible. The proposal for alternative alignment excluding the regional park should be taken up.

Widening of the link road between Mehrauli road near Andheria Mor in Delhi to Gurgaon-Faridabad road near Gwal Phari through Gadaipur & Mandi: This will ease traffic on MG Road within Delhi and provide direct link to Gurgaon-Faridabad Road and NH-8 through Greater SPR proposed in GMUC —2031. The NCT/ DDA should initiate implementation by acquiring land wherever required.

75-metre-wide road link in the Delhi area between sector-109 & 114 of Gurgaon-Manesar-Urban Complex-2031AD and connecting Gurgaon area with Nazafgarh road: Between sector-109 and 114, a portion of the land belongs to NCT, Delhi. On both sides of this land, a 75-meter wide road is proposed in GMUC 2031 AD.
In the Haryana portion, towards sector 109, this road stands constructed. However in the Delhi portion falling between sector-109 and 114, the provision of link is required to be made and similarly this road is also required to be linked with the Nazafgarh road in NOT, Delhi. The proposal is to include this in Delhi Master Plan as this road will act as an outer road to the GMUC plan from sector 99 to sector 115.

The CWC has approved the cost of this project at Rs 667.26 crore out of which share of Delhi is Rs 520.18 crore against which Delhi has released Rs 414.00 crore so far. Therefore, the balance payment of Rs 106.18 crore and the interest on it @ 18% per annum is still outstanding with Delhi Jal Board.

The matter has been raised by Haryana at the 5th and 6th meetings of UYRC and in 50th meeting of UYRB at Delhi. Despite repeated assurance by the Chief Secretary, Delhi, and Delhi Jal Board it has failed to release balance funds so far.

Non-release of pending extra raw water charges by Delhi Jal Board: Haryana has been releasing water from the common pool at Tajewala to keep the Wazirabad Pond level full in compliance of the the Supreme Court orders on February 29, 1996. Executive Engineer, Delhi W/S Division, Delhi, has been raising the bill for the extra raw water supplied to Delhi Jal Board since March, 1996. The matter was discussed at the 5th and 6th meetings of UYRC and 50th meeting of UYRB at Delhi.

The amount of Rs. 69.62 crore is due against Delhi Jal Board for payment of extra raw water supplied from 1997 to Dec. 2015. These quantities of extra raw water duly verified by Upper Yamuna River Board.

Non-payment of Abiana amounting to Rs. 2,74,78,664 by the cultivators in Delhi state for irrigation water supplied to them: The Haryana Government is supplying 51 cusecs of water for the cultivators of the state of NCT of Delhi through its network of canals. Abiana is being raised by the Executive Engineer at Delhi to the concerned Deputy Commissioner of Govt. of NCT of Delhi for recovery of the same. However, a sum of Rs 2,74,78,664 is yet to be recovered from the farmers.

The revenue authorities of Govt. of NCT of Delhi have not been able to recover this amount from the concerned farmers despite several requests made in this regard. The matter came up for discussion during the 5th and 6th meetings of UYRC held on 28-05-2013 at Delhi. Chief Secretary, Delhi agreed to look into the issue and assured the Chairman, UYRC, that the matter will be resolved by the Govt. of NCT of Delhi.

The Delhi Government has been requested to nominate Deputy Collector of Haryana Irrigation Deptt. as bailiff for recovery of Abiana from the farmers of NCT of Delhi, but no reply has been received so far from them.
