Development of Dharwad Industrial Area under Bengaluru-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project

In order to increase the share of manufacturing in the overall GDP of the country and for ensuring systematic and planned urbanisation, the government of India (GoI) has adopted the strategy of developing integrated industrial corridors on the backbone of transport connectivity infrastructure in partnership with state governments. 
Under the Industrial Corridor Programme, the objective is to create greenfield smart industrial cities with sustainable plug-n-play ICT enabled utilities to facilitate the manufacturing investments into the country by providing quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure for the industries. 
GoI has approved 11 industrial corridors consisting of 32 projects to be developed in four phases. As part of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), four greenfield industrial smart cities/nodes are being developed in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. 
Major trunk infrastructure works have been completed in these industrial cities/nodes with 138 plots (754 acre) allotted to companies with investment to the tune of over Rs 16,750 crore. 
Anchor investors in these cities/nodes include companies like HYOSUNG (South Korea), NLMK (Russia), HAIER (China), Tata Chemicals and Amul. Twenty-three nodes/projects in other industrial corridors are under various stages of planning and development. 
The Bengaluru-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (BMIC) is envisioned to facilitate development of a well-planned and resource-efficient industrial base in the two states of Karnataka and Maharashtra. 
Perspective Plan for the overall corridor has been prepared and Dharwad (Karnataka) and Satara (Maharashtra) have been identified as the priority nodes. 
Under the Bengaluru-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (BMIC), Dharwad node has been envisaged to be developed for achieving an accelerated development and regional industry agglomeration in the state of Karnataka. 
The project spreads across an area of over 6,000 acre and is in close proximity to Hubballi-Dharwad twin city (second largest Municipal Corporation in Karnataka) which is poised to be the flag-bearer for the next industrial revolution in the state. 
The site is well connected by roads (NH-48 and -67) which connects the metro cities Mumbai, Bengaluru and Goa along with other major urban centres. 
The existing railway station at Dharwad is located at a distance of 25 km and proposed Dharwad-Belgavi rail line is adjacent to the site. Hubballi airport is at a distance of 30 km while the nearest sea ports are at Karwar (170 km) and Goa (180 km). 
The proposed industrial development at Dharwad will augment the existing industrial development and create an investment destination for various categories of industries through provision of large-scale regional trunk infrastructure at Dharwad and tap the potential of the existing road/rail freight movement (strategic position in BMIC corridor approximately 500 km equidistant from Bengaluru and Mumbai) along BMIC. 
Various institutional set ups viz, IIT, IIIT, University of Agricultural Sciences, High Court, etc are in close proximity. Belur and Mummigatti Industrial areas in the vicinity will help in creating an industrial ecosystem for the region. 
Under PM Gati Shakti, the National Master Plan for providing multimodal connectivity, any infrastructure gaps required for Dharwad node will be examined and taken up for development for holistically integrating the economic zones. 
The project is being developed jointly by the National Industrial Corridor Development and Implementation Trust (NICDIT) and the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB). 
A consultant has been appointed for carrying out the Master Planning and preliminary engineering for the project and in this regard, a kick-off meeting was held on 24 November 2021 co-chaired by ACS, Commerce & Industries, GoK and CEO&MD, NICDC along with officials from NICDC, KIADB and the state government.
