The central government has cleared the allotment of 451 acres of land to a number of firms in four states for the establishment of manufacturing facilities under the Delhi – Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project (DMIC), reports The Hindu BusinessLine.
The concerned land parcels are located in Dholera in Gujarat, Shendra-Bidkin in Maharashtra, IIGNL in Uttar Pradesh and Vikram Udyogpuri in Madhya Pradesh. These areas are part of the DMIC’s phase I, under which eight industrial zones are going to be created.
The firms which have received land parcels include South Korean giant Hyosung Corporation, China’s Haier, as well as dairy company Amul.
“The process of land allotment has been initiated and plots have been allotted. A total of 64 plots have been allotted till date measuring 451.01 acres and an investment of Rs 9,483 crore has been committed by the industry players,” stated a government official.
The DMIC is a mammoth infrastructure project which will run over a total length of 1,483 kilometres between the national capital and Mumbai.
The project is aimed at creating globally competitive industrial cities running parallel to the Delhi-Mumbai Rail Freight Corridor.
Once complete, DMIC will stretch over the states of Haryana, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, as well as the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
