The DICDL, a joint venture between the DMIC Trust and the Gujarat government, has committed USD 600 million, for infrastructure rollout in the activation area and construction on the site is in progress, with almost 35 per cent of roads and underground utilities ready, he said. “Dholera has been in the making for almost nine years. Getting the development plans approved, town planning schemes sanctioned and environmental compliances, took almost seven years. Now that the planning and design is complete and construction of 5,600 acres is in full swing, we are certain of our 2019 completion date,” Shivahare said.

Dholera is one of the eight smart city industrial zones, being developed in the first phase of the DMIC, with a total footprint of over 920 sq km. Infrastructure implementation in Dholera special investment region (SIR) is taking place in a phased manner, with an activation area of 22.5 sq km developed in the first stage. Other sectors the SIR is looking to attract include IT, electronics, bio-technology and food processing, having been designed with plug-and-play infrastructure and sustainable and green social infrastructure.
European aviation giant Airbus has signed an MoU for a strategic partnership, which entails assessing the Dholera SIR region and providing inputs on the requirements and infrastructure specifications, particularly for developing an ecosystem of suppliers for the assembly, testing, delivery and maintenance of rotary and fixed wing aircraft, including naval utility helicopters.
