“The allotment of land to the three companies signals the preparedness of IITGN, a ‘Sustainable-Smart-Safe’ world-class township, to host corporate and industries from India and abroad to set up their industrial units and avail a string of incentives and hassle-free business opportunities,” said Alkesh Kumar Sharma, CEO & MD, DMICDC.
He further said that the objective of DMIC is to provide developed land with well defined internal infrastructure through an empowered SPV to facilitate all clearances. “For IITGN, the beginning has now been made with the allotment of land to these three companies,” he pointed out.
Parthasarathi Sensarma, CEO & MD, DMIC IITGNL, said that the allotment of land to the companies would accelerate the implementation of the flagship project of DMIC Development Corporation (DMICDC) and will further attract more domestic and multinational companies to IITGN due to its unique infrastructure features and smart governance.
“We have started work on the project in full swing to facilitate companies which are willing to set up their industrial units in this futuristic project. This township once developed would be one of it’s kind and act as a model for other cities,” he added.
One of the most ambitious infrastructure projects of the world, DMIC is being developed as a global manufacturing and investment destination with the 1483-km-long western dedicated freight corridor as its backbone. Dholera (Gujarat) is the biggest of the eight industrial smart cities being developed in the first phase of the project. Overall, DMICDC is setting up 56 Greenfield smart industrial townships.
