Manohar Lal Khattar, the chief minister of Haryana, had announced the concept of ‘Global City’, an early bird project on the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) in Gurgaon and the government will continue with the project. The project is a Joint Venture between Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC).
The JV partners had hired AECOM India to carry out the feasibility study and master planning of the Global City Project. Narendra Modi government envisioned to develop 800 acres of total land that it got back from Reliance Haryana SEZ Ltd (RHSL) into a Global City having all the attributes of a Smart City. The concept note of this global city describes it as ‘the city shall be one of its kinds’ in India. It will be designed by sharp integrating community concepts, ranging from water supply to power and integrating the IT services for managing the various utility areas therein.
The project components would include festive and leisure components, including an exhibition and convention center, high value innovation and knowledge industries, central business district and townships etc. The global city will be a high-technology infused area, which will have high innovation and knowledge industries. The idea is to bring high-technology and industry together. The blueprints of the project are ready and soon the announcements of the details will be made soon.
The Industries Minister Capt. Abhimanyu announced in January 2016 at a meeting that the proposed Global City will be set up on a sprawling 1000 acres in Gurgaon and it will be the smartest city. The concept note for global city also mentioned that any excess land would be reserved for an exclusive township of HSIIDC and ‘its monetization to compensate for the opportunity cost of land’. A similar project is underway in Gujarat and all the other upcoming projects will be on similar lines. The Gujarat project is acting as the role model.
