Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation has signed a pact with a consortium of Japanese companies, comprising Toshiba, Tokyo Gas and NEC, for building ‘smart communities’ or ‘eco cities’ in the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor region.

Announcing the signing of the memorandum of understanding here today, a spokesman of HSIIDC said the consortium has selected IMT Manesar for a pilot initiative in this regard.

A technical pre-feasibility report has been submitted by the DMIC consultants and a financial pre-feasibility report is being finalised.

He said HSIIDC had been made the nodal agency for various initiatives under the DMIC project in Haryana.

Apart from four nodes (investment regions at Manesar-Bawal and Kundli-Sonipat and industrial regions at Faridabad-Palwal and Rewari-Hissar), early bird projects like an exhibition-cum-convention centre in Gurgaon district, a mass rapid transit system between Gurgaon, Manesar and Bawal; and an integrated multi-modal logistics hub in Rewari district have also been identified.

DMIC’s consultants have submitted pre-feasibility reports for two of the early bird projects — the exhibition-cum-convention centre and integrated multi-modal logistics hub.

The Concept Master Plan of the Manesar Bawal Investment Region (MBIR) has also been finalised. Pre-feasibility studies for three projects in the MBIR — a health-cum-education hub, multi-modal passenger hub and affordable low cost housing project were also underway, he added.

He said a cargo airport was also proposed to be set up in Haryana, within the national capital region. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has carried out a preliminary site visit and pre-feasibility study and has conveyed its consent for the proposed project site.

The Ministry of Defence has issued the requisite NOC for the proposed airport and the case is now being processed by the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
