First phase of Dholera Smart City nearly completed

Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel visited the Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) as part of preparations for the upcoming 10th Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2024 to inspect progress of the industrial smart city and its infrastructure projects.

DSIR will be a major beneficiary of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) and dedicated freight corridor (DFC), with 38 per cent of the DFC traversing Gujarat.

During his visit, the CM underscored the role of sectors such as semiconductors and green hydrogen in India’s sustainable and technology-driven development.

In terms of its energy needs, Dholera’s 4,400 MW solar park, being developed by Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam (GUVNL) under the PPP model, is a game-changer, aligning with the national goal of 250 GW of green energy by 2030.

DSIR will be a major beneficiary of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) and dedicated freight corridor (DFC), with 38 per cent (565 km) of the DFC traversing Gujarat. A four-lane expressway connecting it to Ahmedabad is expected to be completed by 2024.
