BADDI: With the expectation to grow more the industrial development in Baddi belt will now be planned in systemic manner. The master plan a main tool to guide the things will soon be enforced in belt. The master plan main thrust area is to plan the development of area to appropriately addressed requirements and balance with location resources and factor endowments.
The reference area for master plan is likely to be about 318 square kilometers. The preparation of plan for whole of the Baddi Barotiwala Nalagarh area will fall under the jurisdiction of Baddi Barotiwala Nalagarh Development Authority (BBNDA).
The digitized base map for the entire area will be based on latest survey of India map. The map will be updated with the help of suitable surveying techniques, satellite imageries as well as the ground verification.

- Water bodies, forest areas, orchards, village settlements, urban sprawl, agricultural lands.
- H.T. lines, sub-stations, towers.
- National, State highways, Major roads & all important village link roads.
- Undulated areas, contours, relief, bench marks, latitudes, longitudes.
- Any other items that are generally required to be indicated or are found important to be indicated.

It will also lay down the broad-based traffic circulation system. c) Proposals for improvement of junctions, parking lots, idle parking etc. d) To identify the various bottlenecks in the smooth flow of regional traffic and work area-living area relationship besides suggesting mass transport system ideally suited for the area. e) To project the future traffic taking into account the projected work areas, living area etc. and suggest required traffic system.
In addition to it the feasibility of the road network comprising of sector roads, ring roads, arterial roads & bye-passes shall be re-assessed in the light of sanctions already granted by the Town & Country Planning Deptt.
