Review of Katipura Village:
“Katipura in Baghpat, despite being close to Delhi, and being inside Delhi NCR it is less developed.
Due to neglect from leaders and politics, it is quite behind in infrastructure. Only saviour is access through highway.
It is quite close to Yamuna river and Haryana border, still we have problem of drinking water.
Sugarcane is a major crop grown in this village.
Most youth however prefer staying in Noida Delhi or Ghaziabad. I myself stay in Delhi for last 20 years but visit family members in village.“
