The Delhi Government has decided to augment facilities in the four industrial estates of the city at an estiamted cost of Rs 440 crore to provide a boost to small-scale industries.

The state government's infrastructure development agency Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) has issued global requests for proposals for the project.

"The RFP has been issued to improve infrastructure at Okhla, Patparganj, Bawana and Narela industrial estates," said a top official of DSIIDC.

Delhi has a total of 29 industrial estates, comprising mainly small-scale units.

The proposed project envisages development of physical infrastructure like roads, water drainage system, street lighting, sewerage treatment plants, solid waste management system as well as coming up with parking projects.

According to the DSIIDC official, similar projects will be taken up gradually to improve the conditions of the remaining 25 industrial estates.

All the city's industrial estates had been handed over to the DSIIDC through a legislation last year.
