In order to tap the opportunities likely to be generated by the freight corridor, which is being developed by Ministry of Railways between Delhi and Mumbai covering a length of 1483 km, a band of 150 km on both sides was being developed as Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) covering the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra, the spokesman said.

He said the DMIC Sub-Region in Haryana covered about 29,362 square kilometres area, which accounts for about 66.4 percent of the total area of the State.  The HSIIDC is the nodal agency for the development of various initiatives under the DMIC Project in Haryana.

He said DMIC consultants have submitted pre-feasibility reports for the early bird projects –Exhibition-cum-Convention Centre and Integrated Multimodal Logistics Hub.

He said, "HSIIDC has signed Memorandum of Understanding with consortium of Japanese companies comprising Toshiba, Tokyo Gas and NEC for building 'Smart Communities' or 'Eco Cities' in the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) region".

The consortium selected IMT Manesar for a pilot initiative in this regard and pre-feasibility studies are underway, he said.
