Dholera, the biggest industrial node on the upcoming Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor project, has formally opened its door to global investors and businesses, offering land parcels to a multitude of industries with the goal of starting commercial production in the zone by 2019.
At a specially curated event held recently, the Dholera Industrial City Development Limited (DICDL), the SPV administering the special investment region, introduced Dholera to invitees including commercial officers and trade commissioners from embassies and consulates; representative of trade and industry associations, and Indian & foreign chambers of commerce.
Dholera is one of the eight smart city industrial zones being developed in the first phase of DMIC, and with a total footprint of over 920 sq. km, it is the largest among them. Infrastructure implementation in Dholera SIR is taking place in a phased manner with an activation area of 22.5 sq. km (roughly 5,600 acres) developed in the first stage. Once the anchor tenants are in place, the city is expected to quickly take shape setting sights on becoming a global model for highly planned, model smart cities.
