DMIC in Rajasthan[edit]

The Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) passes through Rajasthan along with nearly 39% of the Multi-modal High Axle Load Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC). Opportunities for industrial establishment, in Bhiwadi and all along the route, are imminent as the corridor will make Rajasthan easily accessible to eastern and northern markets. About 60% of the State's area (in 22 Districts including major districts such as Jaipur, Alwar, Kota and Bhilwara) falls within the project influence area. With this, the State will become an attractive destination for setting up industrial and support infrastructure units.

In the Khushkhera-Bhiwadi-Neemrana region an new, integrated industrial township is being developed. A similar township is also being planned in Jodhpur-Pali-Marwar area under DMIC in the first phase.

Development Plans under DMIC[edit]

Within the investment region of Khushkhera-Bhiwadi-Neemrana a new Greenfield integrated township is to be developed as a model future city spread over (approx.) 165 km2, with support infrastructure and residential, commercial and industrial zones. The development will include connectivity with road, air & rail networks, sufficient availability of land, power, gas, etc., a Greenfield airport with a world-class integrated logistics warehousing hub, and the "Central Spine", a road corridor to connect the Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behroran complex in Neemrana and Bhiwadi-Tapukara Industrial complex.
