Indore is the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh and is also the administrative headquarters of the Indore District and the Indore Division. As a result, the city has become a hub of industrial, technological and educational activity. Indore was once the capital of the princely state of Indore. The strong historical background has given the city rich culture and heritage and it is therefore emerging as a popular tourist and economic spot today. The strategic location of Indore has also contributed to its manifold development, both economically and socially.
To provide better connectivity to the Financial Capital of the state there was a need of express corridor which will increase the economic activities of Indore city as well as provide the strong road network for the different sectoral growth of the city. The city is growing at very fast pace and the urban sprawl of the city was increasing and need immerged for the connection of every part of the city to the airport therefore 75m wide RW-2 (14 Kms) was much needed link to connect eastern and western part of Indore including Airport.
- Making the Super Corridor as a main hub which can lead to new growth of Indore
- The Super Corridor can play a role of central area of Madhya Pradesh in connection with developing Economic Corridor.
- The development of Super Corridor will promote the economic growth of surrounding area of Indore.
- Introduce of the concept of Green TOD and Mixed-use development in consideration of the international trend
- Improve the accessibilities among the railway, highway and road in order to activate the use of mass transit.
- The purpose was to develop more attractive vibrant, healthy, clean and safe environment, with modern facilities.
- Full range of services and well maintained infrastructure offering a highly desirable place to work, live, invest and cater to the needs of a diverse community
- Facilities that will be supported by eager investors as well as upscale market individuals requiring high quality, unique experiences
- Support family learning; cleanliness, comfort and convenience; and value for money.
- Enhanced security is required to enable visitors to coexist safely within the development.
The solution which was envisaged for the development was Transit Oriented Development (TOD) through a land pool model which will help the Authority with its financial model.
A transit-oriented development (TOD) is a mixed-use residential or commercial area designed to maximize access to public transport, and often incorporates features to encourage transit ridership. A TOD neighborhood typically has a center with a transit station or stop (train station, metro station, tram stop, or bus stop), surrounded by relatively high-density development with progressively lower-density development spreading outward from the center. TODs generally are located within a radius of one-quarter to one-half mile (400 to 800 m) from a transit stop, as this is considered to be an appropriate scale for pedestrians.
The Super corridor offers to enhance the already rich culture with modern development elements and amenities. Super Corridor Project was envisioned to be a TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT (TOD) serving the city, proposed Railway stations and Inter-state bus terminus (in close proximity) and the ultimate destination of the under construction expressway RW-2, the AIRPORT. It is an express link for the eastern city to the Airport. It would enable travelers to shun the city traffic and reach the airport in no time. This enhances the opportunities that the abutting land provides all along the road RW-2
IDA proposed Mixed Use Development with State of Art Amenities on 300m on either side of RW-2 through Land Pooling using TOD Principles. Once the Scheme was approved by the Concerning Town and Planning Department and Mutual agreements were done by the stake holders, on site development was started. As per the Scheme after demarcation stake holders came into action regarding scheme details and development procedure.
For timely completion of project, the whole development work was planned in Phases.
Initially all the Master Plan Road work was started in first phase due to financial issues, once the development in first phase was complete then demarcation of reserved plots was done, which gave confidence to the stakeholders. Allotment of reserved plots in favor of stakeholders were started so that they get the ownership back in form of developed plots.
As the population and industry has continued to increase. Indore City needs to develop the proper urban area. Indore City should develop the urban area to lead the surrounding regions in order to play a leading urban role for the State of Madhya Pradesh
1. The amount of compensation- Almost 2.5 times of collector guide line.
2. Consent of the land owners.
3. Social impact assessment survey-long time period for acquiring the land.
4. Acquiring the land under purchase policy issued by the Govt. of M.P.-- compensation--two times of the Collector guide line as well as consent of the land owner.
5. Financial viability of the scheme.
Some of the challenges faced during implementation were
Upfront huge financial involvement for which IDA did not have funds
Resistance and litigations from land owners
Difficulties in Assembly of Land
Landowners were asking for cash compensation as per new acquisition ACT
Huge amount of compensation cost.
litigations slowing down the process of land development
Gaining confidence of Land Owners
Time bound development of the scheme
Fulfillment of commitment
Committee was constituted to resolve problems under chairmanship of retired Judges. Representative of the land owners were included in committee. Report was submitted before IDA board.
An increase in share of land owners by 5% was made after Resolution.
Demarcation of the layout at site
Construction of Sub grade roads to demarcate plots.
Demarcation of reserved plots at site
Registry of plots in favor of land owners
Change in the plot allotment policy
Consultation with the stakeholder.
Understanding land owner needs and demand.
Committed development period for timely delivery of plots.
Mutually agreed upon condition in agreement.
Transparency in plot allotment procedure.
Sectoral development of scheme.
Sectorwise approval of layout for fast implementation.
Gaining confidence of Land Owners
Multiple Engagements with Land Owners
Registered Agreement with Land Owners
Allotment of compensation plot at initial stage
Working out Win-Win Preposition, which insured 20 fold increase in land value
Size of Investments and Cash-flow Issues
The Project Cost of Rs 1050 Crs was met through IDA’s share of Plotted Area
Phased Revenue Generation right from Project Development Commencement
Timely Delivery of Developed Plots to Land Owners
Judicious Implementation Planning and Project Phasing
Direct Connectivity from the CBD area to Airport.
No monetary compensation was involved, due to which IDA was able to execute the project smoothly without any Financial crunch.
Flexible Land use which will allow multiple activities to promote IT, Soft activities which increased employment.
Big IT Companies started their operations which added the value of the corridor.
Indore City is influenced by DMIC and will be developed consecutively with the neighboring Economic Corridor; it is highly likely to grow.
The airport is close to project site, rapid movement to any area of India from Indore City is possible and there is likely to be high demand for multi-purposed business activities. Indore City is likely to be developed into an international level of multi-functional city in the long term.
Mixed-Use and Transit-oriented Development
Promoting Super Corridor's image by making differentiated central area
The first development concept is the heart of Indore City with knowledge and technology intensive area, including the following:
The Super Corridor is located on the main axis of urban growth (a secondary center of the city)
Non-pollutant commercial activities based on High-tech and Knowledge
Introduced an IT Park function and Startup equilibrium to create for new growth engines
Development into a center area fostering professionals
The second development concept is full of healthy smiles and vibrancy in Indore City and including the following:

The Project has become Hub of IT (TCS and INFOSYS have already set up 100 acres
MP amended their Town Planning Act to accommodate Town Planning Schemes on Plot Reconstitution Mode
IDA has now finalized and notified 8 Town Planning Schemes across 1500 Ha
Inspired from the success, other Development Authorities in MP are taking up Town Planning Schemes
VCF( Value Capture Financing) to finance Urban infrastructure was replicated by IMC in taking up TP Schemes under Municipal Act for development of Missing Links in Brown field Areas
Super Corridor Urban planning and development model can be replicated to city and other states based on the learning's from the project.
Stake holder Consultative approach
Multiple stake-holders consultation built trust and transparency among them
Treating landowners as co-developer or partners
Understanding needs of land owner
Taking suggestions while preparing layout
Transparency in plot allotment procedure
