Estimated Development Outcomes with DMIC Project Centre for Urban Research

Estimated Development Outcomes with DMIC Project

The project outline for DMIC envisages development of project influence region as Model Industrial Corridor of international standards with emphasis on expanding the manufacturing and services base and develop DMIC as the 'Global Manufacturing and Trading Hub'. Accordingly, the project goals for DMIC project include:
. Double employment potential in five years
. Triple industrial output in five years
. Quadruple exports from the region in five years
DMIC would lead to development of enabling environment to activate local commerce, promote global investments with world class industrial, physical and social infrastructure. It is estimated that development of DMIC will offer employment opportunities for 3 Million people with over 67% in the manufacturing / processing industry.

Sector wise Employment Employment
Manufacturing/ Industrial Processing Area 2,000,000
Employment in agro/food processing and allied infrastructure 200,000
IT/ITES/Biotech Hubs 600,000
Knowledge Cities 100,000
Logistics Infrastructure 100,000
Total 3,000,000

In case of Agro/Food Processing, the total employment generation estimated as 200,000 will be primarily involved in processing, distribution and allied backward/forward linkages for agricultural produce. There will be other beneficiaries with increased agriculture/ farming activity in the DMIC Influence region and corresponding impact on the employment generation.
Moreover, as DMIC project involves implementation and operation of various industrial activities (Manufacturing/agro-processing/ IT/ITES) and infrastructure facilities viz roads, railways, airports, ports and logistics infrastructure and integrated townships, there will be furthermore innumerable employment opportunities in construction, operation and maintenance of envisaged facilities under DMIC viz. opportunities for design consultants during project preparation stage; for construction labourers, engineers and managers during implementation stage and other primary, secondary and tertiary employment opportunities during operation & maintenance stage. Accordingly, there is a potential to generate about 10 Million job opportunities during the functional/ Operation & Maintenance stage.
