Once ready, it will be a major point of industrial goods offload, officials said.

We have appointed Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India for preparing the feasibility study-cum-DPR of the proposed logistics and warehousing hub in the area,” said Monika Rani, Additional CEO of YEIDA .
As the consultant submits the inception report, it recommends that the upcoming logistics and warehousing hub be well connected via road rail. In the report, it is suggested that the upcoming hub should be connected with Delhi Palwal rail road with 16 km of track laid for the purposes.
