The Allahabad High Court had stayed construction in Noida Extension, which is a part of Greater Noida, and directed the Greater Noida Authority to seek approval of its Draft plan from the NCR Planning Board.

The Board, which is chaired by Union Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath, has okayed the Draft Master Plan with the understanding that the earlier recommendations made by the NCRPB technical committee would be incorporated in the plan, officials said.

A statutory committee of NCRPB had already given the Draft plan the go-ahead after suggesting some modifications, sources said.

The developers welcomed the decision of NCRPB.
