The Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) has proposed development of Industrial Model Township (IMT) Sohna, spread across 1,292 acres of land, through the PPP (public-private partnership) mode. The proposed IMT will span around to the north of Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway in Mewat region.
“The site has immense locational advantage. It is located at the intersection of NH2-48A and KMP Expressway, about 36 kms south of the Sohna Chowk, Gurugram. The state government’s recent announcement, of setting up of a five-km-long elevated corridor, from Subash Chowk to Sohna Road, after Badshapur village, would further reduce the travel time to Gurugram. It forms part of the National Capital Region and is located at approximately 50 kms from the Indira Gandhi International Airport,” a spokesperson of the Corporation said.
“HSIIDC is exploring the possibility of partnering with the world’s best, in the field of development of state-of-the-art industrial infrastructure that will usher in a new era of rapid development, investment and employment opportunities in the region,” he added. He also informed that a pre-bid meeting is scheduled to be held on April 30, 2018.
The proposed IMT is envisaged for development of this industrially backward region of Mewat, through a joint development model, wherein expertise, efficiency and financial resources of a private player, will help in setting up of a world class industrial township, thus, unveiling the untapped industrial potential of the region, he said. The HSIIDC has already invited expression of interest (EoI) for development of the IMT, the spokesperson added. HSIIDC, the Haryana government’s nodal agency for development of industrial infrastructure, has already developed six IMTs, including at Manesar, Bawal, Rohtak and Mewat.
