This new city which will be developed in a public-private partnership (PPP) model is expected to be larger than Chandigarh and will be spread across at least 50,000 hectares. However, it will still be smaller than Gurugram which is spread across 73,000 hectares. According to a report by The Indian Express, the city will be located south of New Delhi and will share boundaries with the Gurugram-Manesar urban area to the North and the Aravalli hills to the NorthEast.

The master plan for this new city will be prepared by a consultant finalised by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC). The government wants it to be a world-class city with facilities like education and health. It will be connected to the neighbouring urban centres through national and state highways, the Kundli-Manesar – Palwal (KMP) Expressway and other major districts roads.
