Sectoral development opportunities with DMIC Project
It is expected that DMIC project would lead to:
. Creation of high quality industrial infrastructure region over an area of about 200,000Ha with over 60% of land use under manufacturing areas/ Special Economic Zones/ Processing industries;
. Development of Agro/Food Processing Hubs with requisite forward/backward linkages would lead to development of agricultural production and efficient storage/distribution of produce through utilization of latest technologies;
. Construction/augmentation of about 7000km of road linkages, about 3300km of rail linkages, development of two Greenfield Port Projects (Dholera and Maroli) in Gujarat, one Greenfield Port Project (Dighi) in Maharashtra and augmentation of Dahej and Hazira Ports in
. Augmentation of seven airports and construction of two new air strips, power generation and transmission system for ensuring reliable power supply in DMIC region with provision for at least 10,000MW of power;
. With respect to Logistics infrastructure, construction, operation/ maintenance of state-of-the-art logistics hubs over 17000Ha of land with multi-modal integrated transport infrastructure. It was envisaged that each of the identified node will have relevant logistics infrastructure based on the specific requirements viz. integrated logistics parks, inland container depots/ container freight stations, truck terminals with warehousing facilities etc;
. Development of Skill Development Centers/ Centers of Excellence/ Knowledge Cities at select locations for specific/target industry sectors in the vicinity of major industrial areas and as part of proposed investment nodes (investment regions/industrial areas) so as to ensure availability of trained man-power, upgrade skill sets of local people and increase employment opportunities.
