The Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) has chalked out a plan to make Delhi an advanced industrial state as far as the non-polluting manufacturing sector is concerned.

“We intend to generate large number of employment opportunities in rural as well as urban areas in Delhi. The rural belt in Delhi will be developed in such a way to overshadow the existing industrially and IT developed neighbourhood,” said Delhi Industries Minister Ramakant Goswami while addressing a press conference.

In order to encourage non-polluting small and medium industries in Delhi, the DSIIDC is setting up a very large multi-level manufacturing hub in northwest Delhi, which will be located on an area of 150 acres. The estate will be developed with an estimated cost of Rs 3,100 crore at Rani Khera, Goswami said, adding that the construction will start in nine months.

“The project site will be connected with the Metro stations. It will cater to specific needs of IT, media research, gems and business services,” he said.
