    MUMBAI: In a bid to move its defence play to the next level, the Anil-Ambani owned Reliance Group is planning to set up India's first smart city for the sector in an area of around 5000 acres to house a fully integrated defence and aerospace infrastructure facility. It's part of the group's plans to capture a slice of the $ 100-billion worth of opportunities that the sector would soon throw up. The Reliance Group is negotiating with the Maharashtra, UP , Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan governments for land for the project to be called Dhirubhai Ambani Defence Park ( DADP). The defence smart city , as the company calls it, will support import of components, systems and subsystems as also export of finished products, along with a fully developed airfield and road connectivity to the nearest port.Besides, it will provide a range of auxiliary units across avionics and forging, company officials told TOI. The group will debut in defence through Reliance Defence & Aerospace (RDA) by bidding for the upcoming tenders for 387 Army Reconnaissance & Surveillance Helicopters and 100 Naval Utility Helicopters, estimated to be valued at Rs 25,000 crore. It is in talks with a few potential partners for a tie- up. The defence smart city may draw some influences from Aerospace Valley in France, a cluster of aerospace companies and research centres concentrated around Toulouse. About 500 companies including Airbus, EADS, Air France Industries and Dassault Aviation operate in the cluster, creating jobs for around 1.2 lakh people.
