    This project looks like a sci-fi city of the future! Check out the video below.

    Dholera SIR is among the eight industrial regions planned in the first phase of the DMIC project.

    The entire project covers an area of approximately 920 sq km and is a node strategically located near the industrial cities of Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Surat and Bhavnagar.

    Since the entire trunk infrastructure cannot be implemented in one go, a phased approach has been adopted for the project and an Activation Area of 22.5 sq km has been identified which would act as catalyst for further investments and will provide a base for taking up development of the remaining area.

    Monthly review meetings are being conducted at the highest level to ensure that the project issues are proactively addressed and the project completed ahead of schedule.



    PDC has not been mentioned. Completion probably by 2020-22.

    GIFT city was supposed to be a base for currency trading like London and Dubai. That is where the real money is.

    I wonder what happened to that idea.

    Keep collecting info.
    I created threads about Indian foreign aid and Laser Systems but I alone had to contribute.
    Your info will help in smart city thread. Let me collect some info also to create thread.
