Dholera SIR, India’s First Platinum Rated Greenfield Industrial city about 100 km south of Ahmedabad, is ready to offer to the investors world-class, plug-and-play infrastructure, large land parcels and reliable & affordable amenities that have been benchmarked against the best in the world.
In a candid interview, Jai Prakash Shivahare, CEO, Dholera Special Investment Region Development Authority (DSIRDA) and MD, Dholera Industrial City Development Ltd (DICDL), talks about the strategic advantages of Dholera and mega projects under implementation for this engineering marvel of India.
Tell us about the advantages of Dholera Special Investment Region.
We have several unique features compared to any other city in India: First, we are creating a world-class ICT enabled plug-and-play infrastructure. Thus, fully serviced land parcels ranging from 5 acres to 370 acres are available for industries to setup their operations immediately. Second, all the utilities like Water, Waste Water, Power, ICT, Urban Planning, and Roads & Underground Utilities are benchmarked against the best in the world in terms of reliability, redundancy and quality of services.
These will help industries to reduce their life-cycle cost. For example, in power supply, due to lowest T&D losses, compact area, power ducts with smart metering and future ready infrastructure, Dholera offers one of the lowest power tariffs in the country, thus ensuring huge cost savings on power for the companies during the life cycle of the project.
