    Japan inks pact for Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor project ​


    New Delhi: Giving a push to the ambitious Rs 3.6-lakh crore Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project, New Delhi and Tokyo today signed two pacts, including collaboration in developing eco-cities around the project. "The DMIC is conceptualised as a global investment and manufacturing destination with emphasis on expanding manufacturing and services base," Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma said after signing the two pacts here today.


    The Minister also said the project will involve huge investment and initial projection points at a whopping Rs 3,60,000 crore. The DMIC Development Corporation entered into a pact with the Japan External Trade Organisation for collaborating with the environment-related projects and for transfer of Japanese expertise in developing and promoting 'smart communities' (eco-cities) around the DMIC project area.

    The Japan Bank of International Cooperation also singed a loan agreement totalling up to USD 75 million (Rs 330 crore) with India Infrastructure Finance Company to prepare plan for overall DMIC region and developing plans for investment in Phase-1.

    Developing the western corridor

    The project to build a Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) got the much-needed push, with the signing of two Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) between the Japanese and Indian institutions. The DMIC Development Corporation and the Japanese JETRO are to promote 24 eco-cities or smart communities along the corridor, while the Japan Bank for International Cooperation has offered a $75 million loan facility to help establish a Project Development Fund to kick-start the project. The DMIC project comprises a host of sub-projects for infrastructure development — for instance industrial estates, power plants, and logistics parks — which are to come up on either side of the proposed 1,483 km Delhi-Mumbai railway freight corridor. The foundation stone for the rail corridor was laid by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh way back in October 2006. This Rs.22,000 crore project is expected to change the face of the western corridor, with the DMIC developing the entire hinterland. The Gujarat government has embarked on a vigorous drive to attract foreign investment for the project and it can be expected to gain momentum as a result of the recent visit of Japanese Prime Minister Yokio Hatoyama. In addition to harnessing Japanese investments and interests, the States along the western corridor will also be tapping foreign and domestic investments for the overall development of the region. The western rail freight corridor will link the Jawaharlal Nehru port and other ports in Gujarat to the industrial belts in the western, central, and northern regions extending up to New Delhi. A separate dedicated corridor to the east has also been planned by the Indian Railways, and the work on it was launched in February. The dedicated corridor is meant to focus exclusively on carrying freight, and the project, conceived in 2004-05, envisages 2,700 km of new freight lines and about 5,000 km of feeder lines.

    The western corridor will connect Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Palanpur, Jaipur, Rewari, Tughlakabad, and Dadri. It is now for the Government of India, and all the agencies involved in the massive project — including the Railways, the State governments, and even the Planning Commission — to work in close coordination and ensure that it does not suffer undue delays and the consequent cost over-runs. Japan wants to showcase the DMIC as a model not just for India, but the whole world. To begin with, the Indian agencies need to expedite the basic work on the feasibility report, environmental clearances, land acquisition, and preparation of a blueprint for the whole project. The prospective investors will need a definite time frame and a detailed plan to finalise their investment plans.

    DMIC - A dawn of new era called, Gujarat

    At a time, when the global industries are integrating to take a leap further into prosperity with mutual co-operation, Gujarat is not lagging behind in this effort to extend hands for global assistance for setting up mega industrial infrastructures.

    Recently, a Japanese group of consultants have signed pact with three of the Indian states to jointly develop infrastructure for Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). Gujarat is a part of the national co-operation with Japan to set up eco-friendly infrastructure for the new cities that will come up on the Delhi-Mumbai stretch with an estimated investment of USD 90 billion.

    The DMIC, comprising six states Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, is being developed in collaboration with Japan as a manufacturing and trading hub.

    Under the four Memorandums of Understanding (MoU), Japanese consultants will launch feasibility studies to set up the first set of ‘smart communities’ in different parts of the DMIC stretch. In Gujarat, such communities will be set up at Dahej and Changodar. A host of Japanese companies like Hitachi, Mitsubishi Corporation, Toshiba, JGC, Itochu and Tokyo Electric Power Company will be part of the consortiums conducting the feasibility studies.

    Envisaged as a key to prosperity for the backward regions of the Delhi-Mumbai stretch, DMIC is believed to fast-track development process not only in the region but in the country as a whole.

    Leaders of the nation are of the opinion that once the project is completed, it would generate huge employment opportunities, double India’s industrial production and quadruple exports. The first phase is expected to be completed by 2018.

    Gujarat holds about 38% portion or 565 km of the total dedicated freight corridor (DFC), a multi-modal high axle load freight corridor between Delhi and Mumbai, covering an overall length of 1483 km and passing through these six states with end terminals being at Dadri in the NCR of Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru Port near Mumbai.

    Gujarat has put in-place the plan outline of the strategic development needs for rail, road and special infrastructure. It covers conversion of rail lines in broad gauge, doubling the rail lines or provision of fresh rail lines in certain parts, strengthening the roads by converting them to four lanes or six lanes roads as per the need and providing special infrastructure in form of logistic parks, new international airport, metro or high speed rail transit system etc.

    The State government has pegged the estimated cost for the infrastructure at Rs.24,000 crore. DMIC is considered to be the next most significant development in the history of Gujarat, which is going to change the industrial and social structure of the State in due course of time.

    NEW DELHI: Buoyed by a landmark free trade pact and the launch of nuclear negotiations, India and Japan are set to scale a new frontier in bilateral ties by launching 24 green cities in the proposed Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC).

    "Japan and India are planning to set up 24 green cities in the DMIC area," Aftab Seth, a former Indian ambassador to Japan and a driving force behind the green initiative, told IANS.

    The green cities will include optimised energy supplies, 24-hour drinking water supply, bicycle and walking tracks, and waste and water recycling systems.

    Preparatory work has already started on pilot projects in seven green cities that will be part of the DMIC, which is bigger in area than Honshu, the largest Japanese island, said Seth. DMIC, spanning six Indian states, is the most ambitious infrastructure project India has launched with Japan, a world leader in green technologies, and is expected to cost $50-90 billion.

    Envisaged as a global manufacturing and trading hub, DMIC is expected to be completed in five to seven years.

    "Green cities and green technologies will be an important part of the DMIC. It will be like forging a sort of green alliance between India and Japan," said Seth.

    The first of these cities will be developed in the Dholera investment region in Gujarat, 110 km from Ahmedabad.

    Top Japanese companies like Hitachi, Mitsubishi and Toshiba are expected to be involved in designing and building eco-friendly towns along the DMIC that will pass through Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra.

    "Basically, every place in this city will be in walking or cyclable distance, thereby cutting the need for pollution-spewing public transportation systems," said Seth.

    To boost green business collaboration, India and Japan are organising here a high-profile Global Eco Business Forum on Nov 30 that will see the participation of top Japanese companies like Hitachi, Toshiba and Mitsubishi. Senior Japanese officials, including Masakazu Toyoda, and Ryuji Yanagihara, an expert on green cities, will also be participating.

    Minister of Road Transport and Highways Kamal Nath, Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma and DMIC Development Corporation CEO Amitabh Kant will be among those participating from the Indian side.

    "The Japanese are 10 times more energy efficient than India," said Seth, also chairman of Sun and Sands Advisors, Japan's biggest strategic management and financial advisory for cross-border business between India and Japan.

    "It will be an opportunity for the Japanese to display to an influential and practising audience their talent in energy-saving devices and environment-friendly technologies," he added.

    The expanding green collaboration between India and Japan also has a larger geo-strategic dimension as Japan looks at India's business potential afresh to counter China.

    "The Japanese are steadily coming to the realisation that they have put too many eggs in the Chinese basket. There is an unease with China. India is seen in Japan as a more lucrative market than Vietnam or Indonesia," said Seth, adding the signing of the Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Pact (CEPA) next month is going to give a big boost to business ties between the two countries.

    It does include Mumbai, The pact was signed between the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corp (DMICDC) and the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) for development of eco-friendly and smart cities.

    The first of these cities, Dholera, is here:



    Dholera is already looking pretty good, by the way. With some nice properties that can be snapped up if you can pay the price.

    Here's a nice debate, in Hindi, on the Delhi Mumbai industrial corridoor:

    Indian Railway invite bids for Dedicated Western Freight - Rail News from rail.co

    Indian Railways to invite bids for Dedicated Western Freight Corridor

    By Jagdish-Kumar · July 28, 2011 · Freight, Tenders

    [​IMG]

    The plan is to construct dedicated freight corridors across the country to free up passenger lines and increase speeds. Photo: V Malik.

    The Indian Ministry of Railways has decided to invite tenders for the WesternDedicated Freight Corridor development worth Rs 10,000 crore ($2.2 billion) in the current financial year.

    The Western Corridor is part of the initiative set up by the Railway Ministry, which will cover 2,762 km long two routes – the Eastern Corridor from Ludhiana to Dankuni and the Western Corridor.

    The project will be developed on the ‘Golden Quadrilateral’ linking Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Howrah and its two diagonals Delhi-Chennai and Mumbai-Howrah; which carries more than 55% of revenue earning freight traffic.

    An official from the DFCCIL said:

    “Overall, Rs 10,000 crore bids will be invited by us this year for awarding civil engineering contracts for package I & II of the first phase of the western corridor.

    “This will be followed by bids for awarding electrification and signalling works in six months.”

    The Western dedicated freight corridor is being developed from Dadri, near New Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) passing through three states, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat will be developed in two phases.

    Phase I will be the 950 km Rewari-Vadodara section. Civil engineering works for this phase is being awarded in three packages of Rewari-Ajmer, Ajmer-Palanpur and Palanpur-Vadodara.

    Phase II consists of the 565 km Vadodara-JNPT stretch.

    The overall cost of the Dedicated Freight Corridors will cost the exchequer more than Rs 77,000 crore ($17 billion to $18 billion).

    After completion, the dedicated freight corridors will enable Indian Railways to move fright cargo at an average speed of 65 kmph instead of the 22 kmph it currently moves at.

    It is also expected to drive the establishment of industrial corridors and logistic parks along its alignment with the development of Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC).

    The Japanese Bank of Industrial Cooperation (JICA) has loaned close to Rs 4,500-crore for the first phase of the Western Corridor which is likely to be commissioned in March 2016.

    Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor to be totally green


    Farooq blames U.S., West for environmental destruction



    The ambitious Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) would be totally green, Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah announced at an “International Conference and Exhibition on Green Buildings” here on Thursday.


    Dr. Abdullah said not only would the DMIC be completely green, but the towns on the stretch would also be environment-friendly. “Work on the ambitious corridor that connects the capital with the country's financial capital has already started and the government would make all efforts to make the country greener.”


    The Minister blamed the United States and the West for “environmental destruction” due to emission of greenhouse gases. “I want to tell the Americans and the West that we are paying the price today for environmental destruction because of the greenhouse gas emissions. We are not responsible for it. Let us join together and try to make this world a better place to live. We should all work together to generate new energy and use them. The world should be a better place to live.''


    The government was taking a number of steps to use new energy as a major source of power. The major challenge before it was to produce more power and bring down the cost of the new energy.


    Dr. Abdullah said the Ministry was planning to replace diesel power generators of all mobile phone towers with solar panels. The country should make a gradual switchover to renewable energy, as coal and diesel prices were rising and becoming unaffordable.

    ‘Our needs are different'


    The Minister insisted on more research to produce new energy. He also pitched for import of technology and then developing it “on our own.” “Our needs are far different from that of others. We have done very well in wind energy — we have produced 17,000 MW and we plan to add 2,000 MW every year.”


    Dr. Abdullah released the new rating system for green buildings, known as “Leed 2011 for India,” and distributed awards to students from across the country for taking part in green competitions.


    The new rating comes into effect immediately. It marks a milestone in the green building movement in the country seeking to ensure energy efficiency and sustainable buildings.


    The Minister urged the delegates to work together and develop new technologies and material at lower prices so that green homes became accessible to the common man. “The Ministry will be glad to cooperate with the Confederation of Indian Industry in further accelerating the green building movement in India.”

    well for one thing i'm all for highrises and increased urbanisation, i feel it's the only way we can move enough population to cities to help save farmland which would otherwise get swallowed up by the village population growth.

    ah. modi again. lets see how it goes on. it will massively add to the gdp as raising two dozen cities means hundreds of billions of dollars--> if this alone goes on track then it will keep Indian economy afloat for 2-3 years atleast.

    Apparently, a couple of years ago, to sustain urban pop growth, India needed to build a city the size of CHICAGO EVERY YEAR...

    hopefully it gets implemented properly!

    If we had two or three more states like Gujarat India's GDP growth could easily match or even surpass China's, but unfortunately we have only one Gujarat.

    You definitely want to exclude "Chicago politics" when you build them.
