Modern life is busy and full of stress. With the advent of web and mobile telephony, it has become extremely difficult to keep our personal and office time completely separate. The increasing globalization in every job is also overlapping time zones and is bringing a new dimension of stress. Thankfully the town planning has kept pace and ensured that there are separate zones of actions for different kind of activities. Paarth Republic township on Lucknow Kanpur highway has used these concepts of planning to make life for its residents peaceful and enjoyable. This is also the largest township on this side of town, which brings its own unique advantages.
Let’s first understand as to what is meant by a planned township. A planned township is any community that was carefully planned from its inception and is typically constructed on previously undeveloped land. This contrasts with settlements that evolve in a more ad hoc and organic fashion. We have all seen the chaotic life in unplanned and organically developed residential clusters of Lucknow. Places like Alambagh or Krishnanagar are an example of this life – with no plans and regulation, one can see a commercial development next to a residential one without any concern for privacy of residents. A planned township is an antithesis to this. There are separate zones for residential, commercial and recreational activities. This ensures providing all the facilities without compromising one’s privacy.
The concept of town panning is as old as civilization. However, most parts of Indian cities emerged from expansion of old villages or towns. This resulted in haphazard development. However, some of the cities like Chandigarh, Lutyens’ delhi, Noida have been planned developments with clearly marked zones for different type of activities and a planned infrastructure. However, cities like Lucknow have been deprived of these advantages. Some developments of this kind have come up near Gomti nagar, however on Kanpur road, Paarth Republic is the only development that uses the modern concepts of town planning to ensure it is a premier most township not only of this area but in entire Lucknow.
But what are the advantages of a planned township living. A township living ensures that all the basic requirements of a peaceful and happy life are made available in a fashion that protects individual choices of all residents while offering them advantages of community living. The residents, therefore, don’t have to worry about basic requirements of living. There are markets inside the township to meet everyday requirements of provisions and medical facilities to take care of any eventuality. A clear demarcation of each residential unit and written rules about what modification are possible, make sure that there are no unnecessary disputes among neighbours. Clearly planned and marked parking areas ensure that there is sufficient space for parking and avoids any disputes which is a huge trouble in city areas now a days. The areas of recreation facilities and clubs etc are created a bit off from the main residential areas ensuring no disturbance to sleep of people living here. All this goes on to make life happy and satisfying.
Indians have been flocking to buy houses in large planned townships, especially in post pandemic era. Paarth Republic is seeing a continued traction for its offering and has limited units left to be sold.
