  • Five industrial corridor projects across India have been identified, planned and launched by the Government of India. These corridors are spread across India, with strategic focus on inclusive development to provide an impetus to industrialization and planned urbanization. In each of these corridors, manufacturing will be a key economic driver and these projects are seen as critical in raising the share of manufacturing in India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from the current levels of 15% to 25% by 2025.
  • Smart Industrial Cities are being developed along the Corridors. These cities are being developed to integrate the new workforce that will power manufacturing and will lead to planned urbanization.

The DMIC project was launched in order to create new manufacturing hubs and smart industrial and investment regions. DMIC Development Corporation Ltd. (DMICDC) is the knowledge partner and implementing agency for the project. DMICDC has been registered as a company with 49% equity of Government of India, 26% equity of the Japan Bank for International Corporation (JBIC) and the remaining held by the financial institutions. The Japanese Government had also announced financial support for DMIC project to an extent of US$ 4.5 billion in the first phase for the projects.

The DMIC project is aimed at creating futuristic industrial cities by leveraging the high speed, high capacity connectivity backbone provided by the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) to reduce logistic costs in an enabling policy framework. These cities in the States of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra will seek to create a strong economic base with a globally competitive environment and state-of-the-art infrastructure to activate local commerce, enhance investments and attain sustainable development. The master planning of these cities is founded on key sustainability concepts and use of cutting edge technology to compete with the best manufacturing and investment destinations in the world.
