The Madhya Pradesh Audyogik Kendra Vikas Nigam (AKVN), Indore is setting up a greenfield industrial township in Dhar district- the second such township after Pithampur.
The AKVN has acquired and demarcated 146-acre land, and submitted a master plan for the proposed township to the town and country planning department for its approval.
“Once the permission is received, we will prepare a DPR (detailed project report) and float tenders for development work, which should start within two-and-half-months,” the AKVN Indore managing director Manish Singh said.
The industrial township will be self-sufficient with a slew of amenities, including commercial complex, polyclinic, petrol pumps, automated teller machines (ATMs), post office and other facilities for the employees.
About 40% land will be reserved for development work, including amenities and basic infrastructure such as roads, electricity and water. Provision has also been made for a water treatment plant.
The AKVN will construct a 4.50km road from Ujjaini main road in Dhar district to the proposed township site. The body has already received no objection certificates (NOCs) from the village panchayats in the region.
According to the master plan, the township will have a wide range of industrial plots measuring from 1000 square feet to 1,00,000 square feet.A separate portion will be earmarked for non-processing zone where among other facilities canteens and rest house for employees will be built.Provision has also been made for other structures such as an exhibition hall, training centres, dormitories and warehouse.
This is by far the most ambitious project undertaken by the AKVN Indore in the recent past, and will go a long way in fulfilling the projections made for industrialisation of the region during the global investors meet held in October last year.
