History

The land within the NOIDA city limits was initially under the Ghaziabad district . Later still, NOIDA was made into a separate administrative zone as a separate district by Chief Minister, Ms Mayawati. This decision of the Mayawati government came under review from the next government of Mulayam Singh Yadav, who reversed it in 2003, and remerged NOIDA with Ghaziabad. After a period of some 9 months, the decision was reversed yet again in 2004 and the city was once again made into a separate district. There were some allegations of political favours through low-priced land deals due to these decisions.

Miscellaneous

Due to its proximity to Delhi and the increased pressure on land due to economic boom conditions, property rates are on the rise in the township. Land rates which were in the Rs. 3,000-15,000/m² range till about 5 years ago have soared to Rs. 30,000-85,000/m² (US$ 75 - 150 / sq foot). In 2005, the Noida Authority came under fire [5][6][7] for their controversial decision to build the world's tallest building. However, the decision was shelved after protests from citizens, as the city does not have the geographical or administrative infrastructure to handle a 1 km tall building. NOIDA comes under seismic zone 4, which along with the loose soil and sand of the Yamuna river bed, means building collapse in an earthquake situation is a distinct possibility.
