‘Noida better than Gurgaon’

In February this year when the Akhilesh Yadav Government appointed Nagendra Prashad Singh, a 2005-batch IAS officer, as District Magistrate of Gautam Buddh Nagar, its primary objective was to pacify the agitating farmers and fast-track the development projects which have been pending in the district adjoining Delhi. Singh (55) was instrumental in settling farmers’ disputes when he was Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO) of the Noida Authority during Mayawati’s rule. This time around, too, he is close to success, having acquired most of the land for the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) and Indian Railways’ regional station.
