Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor
Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) is a flagship program of the Government of India aiming to develop “Futuristic Smart Industrial Cities” and converging next generation technologies across infrastructure sectors.
The objective of DMIC is to expand India’s Manufacturing & Services base and develop DMIC as a “Global Manufacturing and Trading Hub”. It will provide a major impetus to planned urbanization in India with manufacturing as the key driver. In addition to new Industrial Cities, it envisages development of infrastructure linkages like power plants, assured water supply, high capacity transportation and logistics facilities as well as softer interventions like skill development programme for employment of the local populace.
DMIC is being developed along with the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC). DFCCIL, a Ministry of Railways, Government of India enterprise, is developing WDFC, which passes through the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra, having end terminals at Dadri in the Uttar Pradesh and Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) near Mumbai, Maharashtra. The Dedicated Fright Corridor offers high-speed connectivity for High Axle Load Wagons supported by high power locomotives. DMIC will leverage the High Speed – High Capacity connectivity of WDFC.
In the first phase of DMIC eight new industrial cities are being developed across six states- Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra. In the state of Uttar Pradesh, Dadri-Noida-Ghaziabad Investment Region is being developed under the DMIC. This investment region is located within 50 km from the alignment of Dedicated Freight Corridor and the nearest metropolitan region is Delhi, the National Capital of India.
Under the Dadri-Ghaziabad-Noida Investment Region of DMIC, following three Early Bird Projects are being developed:
- Integrated Industrial Township at Greater Noida
- Multi Modal Logistic Hub (Freight Village) at Dadri, Greater Noida and
- Multi Modal Transport Hub at Boraki, Greater Noida
