Work on logistics hub under the DMIC likely to commence this year

The Integrated Industrial Township in Greater Noida, which is a part of the flagship Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) can expect the commencement of work on a multi-modal logistics hub (MMLH) near Dadri and a multi-modal transport hub (MMTH) near Boraki by the end of this year.

To be developed by DMIC-IITGNL (Integrated Industrial Township Greater Noida Limited), a joint venture between DMIC and the Greater Noida Authority, the Integrated Industrial Township in Greater Noida looks at establishing a futuristic smart industrial city and provide a plug-and-play infrastructure for non-polluting industries.

The MMLH will be spread across 823 acres and will serve as a world-class freight handling unit, facilitating the swift transit of goods and raw materials. The Logistics hub will be developed with an estimated cost of Rs 7,034 crore, and feature advanced warehouses, custom clearance points, rail platforms, cold storage, truck parking bays, and cargo separation areas.

As per the officials IITGNL is looking to hire a project consultant for MMLH, which will prepare the tender of the project and monitor its construction.

It will be connected to New Dadri Dedicated Freight Corridor station through a 3.5-km-long rail approach track.

IITGNL is preparing the detailed project report (DPR) and soon will float a tender to start the work, officials informed.

The MMTH which will integrate a railway station, an interstate bus terminus and a metro rail is also in the process of hiring a general consultant. The detailed project report for MMTH is also near completion.

Approval for metro connectivity from the Depot station to the transport hub has been granted by the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC), Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) and IITGNL. It now awaits the state government’s approval.

To run the ISBT, a private player will be selected. The development of MMTH will facilitate seamless passenger movement in the Greater Noida region and offer opportunities for commercial development, including office spaces, retail outlets, hotels, and shopping malls.

The project will also have a third component, an integrated industrial township. This industrial township will span over 748 acres and come up about 5 km from MMTH and MMLH.

Currently, eight companies have been allocated 168 acres of land within the industrial township, with a proposed investment of Rs 3,936 crore. These companies are expected to generate employment for approximately 12,000 individuals.

Additionally, there are plans to allocate an additional 150 acres of land, previously intended for a research and development facility, to non-polluting industries.
