The Rs 600-crore Integrated Industrial Township in Greater Noida under the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), for which land is being developed by Shapoorji Pallonji, is on track with IIT-Delhi’s approval of its infrastructural design.
The secretary, department of industrial policy and promotion under the Union ministry of commerce, Ramesh Abhishek, and Alkesh Kumar Sharma, chief executive officer and managing director, DMIC, on Saturday conducted a site visit of the project, which is under construction. Satisfied with the physical progress of the township, officials told TOI that infrastructure design services of the project have been vetted by IIT-Delhi.
According to officials of the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA), officials conducted a detailed inspection of the site besides reviewing the design phase of the project, which is now complete. “Since the design phase, which is critical, is mostly on paper, so far the project has completed only about 12%,” said Deepak Agarwal, CEO, GNIDA. “However, work has started on the ground and now the project will move ahead at a fast pace. By October-November we plan to open sale of plots in the area”.
Officials said IIT-Delhi has approved the design for infrastructure services including roads, sewerage, drainage, water supply, etc. “Design for the bridge, solid waste management is likely to be approved next week,” said K K Singh, officer on special duty (OSD – projects), GNIDA. “Currently, earth filling work is being carried out. We have to fill about 8 lakh cubic metres of earth. Our target is to put roads in place in the next four months so that future investors can approach their plots,” he said.
Sprawling across nearly 335 hectares of land, the township will be located in the Dadri-Noida-Ghaziabad investment region of the corridor
Officials said that the township would be located in Ecotech 11A in Greater Noida. Its boundaries include Ghodi Bacheda village, Maicha village, Howrah railway line and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway.
