With the inauguration of Jewar international airport by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, the prices of real estate and other economic activities in and around the area is expected to get a boost.

Being set up at an estimated cost of ₹34,000 crore, the airport, once completed, will ease traffic at the IGI Airport, create a massive number of jobs for the local population, and give a major impetus to the property market in Noida, Greater Noida, and Yamuna Expressway in the National Capital Region of Delhi.

“If the construction progresses as per the schedule and Phase 1 completes by the second half of 2024, there will be significant ‘real’ benefits,” said Santhosh Kumar, Vice-Chairman, Anarock.

“ It will also be giving a boost to corporate travel and bring Noida and Greater Noida at par with Gurugram,” said Amit Modi, President elect, Credai Western UP.

The fastest segments to pick up in the areas would be retail and residential, he added.

As per Anarock data, the total available housing stock in Noida, Greater Noida, and Yamuna Expressway collectively stands at nearly 54,450 units (as on Q3 2021). This is 33 per cent of the total stock in the entire NCR.
