Sahibabad is the name for a group of industrial, residential and commercial areas within the jurisdiction of Ghaziabad District of Uttar Pradesh, India. It touches the borders of Delhi, Noida, and main city of Ghaziabad and constitutes a part of the Delhi National Capital Region.

Government planning mainly by agencies of the UP Govt,GDA, Awas Vikas, and om/ UPSIDC have led to the improvisation of the area as a viable business, home, and occupational option.

Residential[edit]

Growth has been in clusters and factors which have contributed to the occupancy of Sahibabad have been-

  • Employment potential in the vicinity
  • Relatively cheaper residential land rates
  • Connectivity with Noida, Delhi and Ghaziabad
  • Availability of essential amenities

Growth in early 1980s[edit]

GDA started approving colonies as plots and selling constructed units at these areas-

  • Having access to the Ghazipur Road (Ramprastha, Surya Nagar, Brij Vihar, Chander Nagar)
  • Having access to the GT Road (Shalimar Garden, Rajendra Nagar- Sectors 2, 3, 5, Lajpat Nagar)

Education[edit]

Sahibabad has its self-sufficiency in terms of schools and higher educational institutions. One can complete education from pre-school to secondary school and then opt for higher educational opportunities while still remaining at their home town.

Higher Studies[edit]

Commuting[edit]

Being a part of Delhi NCR as well as being adjacent to East Delhi and Noida have been a boon for the area. The infrastructure for own vehicles on the main roads is as comparable to the best in India, and public transport is rapidly improving.

Delhi Metro[edit]

Sahibabad lies at a zone where East of Delhi as well as Noida are well connected by road, this boon has somehow been of limited benefit to the commuters in terms of accessing the new age MRTS (Mass Rapid Transit System) Delhi Metro. Commuters have to take road vehicles to reach Vaishali (U.P.) and Delhi Border at Dilshad Garden to begin their journey for the Delhi Metro. Further, two brand new stations within Sahibabad have opened namely at Kaushambi and Vaishali.

Bus[edit]

Sahibabad does not have a sub-city operated bus service of its own and the private run buses are interconnecting it while going to-and-fro the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Noida routes. Inter State Buses are available either at Mohan Nagar/Sahibabad Bus Depot or at the new area adjacent to Pacific Mall at Site-IV/Kaushambi.

Cabs[edit]

Apart from a few of the radio cab operators from Delhi, Sahibabad does not have a formal cab system and commuters rely on the Vikrams for their public commute back home. Off late Auto Rickshaws have become more popular and easily available in the suburb. Especially since the Ghaziabad Traffic Police opened a Pre-paid Counter for hiring Auto Rickshaws at Maharajpur Border (the UP side of Anand Vihar ISBT)

Rail[edit]

The area has only one railway station named Sahibabad RS, carrying Indian Railways station code [SBB]. Its used mainly by residents along the GT Road as the areas near to NH24 Bypass and the linking road Madan Mohan Malviya Marg are at a reasonably good distance. A large segment uses the EMU rail for daily commuting Delhi to Meerut / Hapur / Ghaziabad / Dadri.

Road[edit]

For long distance travel, Sahibabad is an important juncture that it gives Delhi access to two of the important highways namely NH58 and NH24. Madan Mohan Malviya Marg connects GT Road to NH24 Bypass. All these three roads along with Ghazipur Road are the peripheral roads of the Sahibabad area and have 6/8 lanes.

Politics[edit]

Amarpal Sharma, of the Bahujan Samaj Party, is the Member of the Legislative Assembly for the area.[1] Sahibabad is the biggest and Largest Legislative Assembly Seat in India and Mr. Amarpal Sharma is the first MLA from Sahibabad
