AHMEDABAD: The Government of Gujarat is promoting the Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) as an ideal destination for investments in the defence manufacturing sector.
Authorities plan to host a summit at Dholera ahead of the Vibrant Summit. Dholera is 110km from Ahmedabad. “We are capable of providing huge land parcels that are required for defence manufacturing facilities,” said Jai Prakash Shivhare, the managing director of the Dholera Industrial City Development (DICC) Ltd. “Such a facility needs 400-500 hectares of land.
Such large land parcels are not available anywhere in India.” Shivhare was present at the Defence Conclave 2018, organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry and Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers.
