|Gujarat has a robust Infrastructure and fast track Economic Development of the State. It takes to it’s credit as Asia’s Biggest “Investment Infrastructure Opportunity Centre.”|
Gujarat’s Industrial Policy 2009 is geared for catalyzing Robust, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth. The Industry in Gujarat has evoked new models of development. Enhancing IRs (Investment Regions) and SIRs (Special Investment Regions) while traversing through Product Clusters, Industrial Estates, Industrial Parks and SEZ, these phases have met with success and co-exist as Gujarat plunges to expansion with Business growth. Increasing Industrial activity in Gujarat has led to vast Investment Regions and immense prosperity for the people of Gujarat.
Gujarat one of the most preferred Investment Destinations of the nation, providing opportunities in almost all the sectors. Development is a mass movement in Gujarat. Gujarat is a Power surplus state and with good infrastructure, quick rederessal of business issues, pro-active and co-operative Governance, Gujarat is a preferred Investment destination for almost every business venture for which, there is transparency and openness.
|Investment Regions (IRs)|
|Government of India announced the establishing the Dedicated Freight Corridor between Delhi and Mumbai, covering an overall length of 1483km and passing thru the States of U.P, NCR of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra, with end terminals at Dadri in the National Capital Region of Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru Port near Mumbai.|
An Investment Region (IRs) are specifically delineated Industrial Region with a minimum area of over 200 square kilometers (20,000 hectares), while an Industrial Area (IAs) would be developed with a minimum area of over 100 square kilometers (10,000 hectares). (In Gujarat, as per the Ordinance Act, An Investment Region will be developed in an area of more than 100 sq. kms and an Industrial area will be developed in an area of more than 50 sq. kms.)
24 such nodes - 9 IRs and 15 IAs spanning across Six States have been identified after wide consultations with the stakeholders i.e the State Governments and the concerned Central Ministries. Six Investment Regions and six Industrial Areas would be taken up for implementation in the 1 Phase during 2008-2012 and rest of the development would be phased out in the next 4 years.
The nodes identified for Phase-1 for Gujarat are :
Bharuch-Dahej Investment Region : As Petroleum, Chemical and Petro-Chemical Investment Region (PCPIR)
Vadodara-Ankleshwar Industrial Area : As General Manufacturing
|Special Investment Regions (SIRs)|
|In January 2009, the State Government promulgated a legal framework - The Gujarat Special Investment Regional Ordinance, 2009. State Government has passed the SIR ordinance particularly to create large size Investment Regions and Industrial Areas in the State of Gujarat; and to specially enable their development as global hubs of economic activity supported by world class infrastructure, premium civic amenities, centers of excellence and pro-active policy framework; and to set up an organizational structure with that purpose.|
This strategy of the State Government is complimented with the strategy of the Government of India. Government of India has proposed a project of Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) between Delhi and Mumbai. The area of 150 kms on both sides of the DFC will be developed as the Industrial Corridor. 38% of the length of the DFC is falling in Gujarat. As part of this Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), six mega industrial nodes (four industrial areas and two investment regions) have been proposed for the State of Gujarat. Almost one third of the proposed investments of about 90 billion US dollars in DMIC is expected to take place in Gujarat alone. As part of the DMIC project, identified industrial nodes have to be developed as Global Manufacturing and Commercial Hubs. All kinds of infrastructure both within and outside the nodes also have to be developed with global standards; Government of Gujarat has not only given its full commitment for the DMIC project but has been actively working with the Government of India on the same.
The DMIC (Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor) is strategically planned Project of the Government covering 1483 kms, of which, 546 kms long route covers Eighteen (18) Regions of Gujarat. Gujarat Government has incredible development plans under this Project.
