By Accommodation Times News Services

Cabinet meetThe Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved the construction of Trunk Infrastructure components in the activation area of 22.5 of  Phase-1 the Dholera Special Investment  Region (DSIR) in Gujarat in the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) Project.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be approximately Rs. 2784.83 crore which will be invested by DMIC Trust as equity in the city/node SPV.

The trunk infrastructure components are:

  • Roads and Services,
  • ABCD building complex (Phase-1),
  • Water Treatment Plant (WTP),
  • Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and
  • Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP)

Trunk Infrastructure development is proposed to commence in FY 2015-16 for the above mentioned infrastructure projects and is likely to be completed by FY 2018-19 after all necessary approvals.  The primary objective of developing the Activation Area is to trigger developmental activities in DSIR and attract local and global investments. This Activation Area has been selected due to maximum concentration of Government Land which will facilitate the early take off of various infrastructure components in DSIR.

The Activation Area is envisaged to act as a catalyst for further investments in DSIR. The presence of basic trunk infrastructure facilities (e.g. roads and services, water, power, sewerage, drainage, STP, CETP etc.) will enable the development of Phase-1 of the DSIR. Also, this area constitutes the northern half of the DSIRDA land and provides very good connectivity with the other Town planning Schemes of the area. The provision of Roads and Services will enable accessibility to this area and will ensure that serviced land is available for investors to start their development activities in the Activation Area.
