Smart city concept has taken up by the Central Government is the need of the hour that became necessary looking at the following facts.
India is predominantly an agricultural based economy and about 80% of the population is still living in rural areas. However, in the recent past, the situation has changed a lot as avenues in the rural areas are dwindling fast, with the result there has been a huge migration towards urban areas which has resulted in burdening the infrastructure of Indian cities whether they are small towns or metro cities.
The situation in urban areas has become quite woeful due to unplanned growth. The situation is aggravated by lack of attention to basic civic amenities, lack of professional approach by the planners, and high incidence of corruption in civic bodies.
A smart city and a first development area have been started in Dholera by the Dholera SIR authority that is located about 95 km from Ahmadabad on the Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor (DMIC). It is not just the industries that are being developed, but also the standard of living of the people.
Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) is being developed into a smart city with the help of huge funds allocated by the Government under this program. The Central Government has approved Rs 2784.83 crore for construction of roads and allied services, ABCD building complex, water treatment plant, sewage treatment plant, and common effluent treatment plant (CETP) in Phase-1 of Dholera SIR.
Town Planning in Dholera SIR is divided into different zones such as Industrial, Residential, City Centre, Knowledge, IT Park, Solar Park, Public Facilities zone, Sports, Entertainment, High Access Corridor, Green Space, and Agriculture, for development.
Moreover, Dholera SIR is situated just about 95 km from the city of Ahmadabad. It will be connected to the city by a metro railway and high-speed expressway. In addition, it will be well-connected to the airport and Dholera seaport. Dholera SIR is also located close to the Gujrat international finance tech city and to the Petrochemicals and Petroleum Investment Region (PCPIR).
Due to the vast Infrastructure facilities being developed, investment in Dholera SIR is likely to give good returns in the times to come with Infinity Infra. It will, therefore, be a wise and a smart decision to buy a modern flat in Dholera with the intent to invest. The outlook for handsome returns and a secure future is definitely favourable.
