Dholera SIR Developers’ Association (DSDA) has sought to push Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) as an investment destination to the companies in China that are exploring alternative geographies in India and Gujarat. A representation regarding this was made by DSDA to the Government of Gujarat, recently.
Several companies who currently have their manufacturing base in China are looking to move out and India is at a very sweet spot for such companies, according to DSDA.“Being a greenfield smart city project, Dholera SIR is an ideal investment destination for companies that want to set up a manufacturing base,” said Rajdipsinh Chudasama, vice-president, DSDA. “This is because infrastructure is available readily for companies to set up base and begin manufacturing immediately. Moreover, with a single-window clearance system supported by the state government, it is indeed an ideal destination for companies looking to move out of China.”
Chudasama went on to say: “We have urged the state government to push for Dholera as an investment destination to these companies. Moreover, Gujarat can also serve as a hub for import and exports hub due to land availability, labour availability, good port facility, road connectivity and 24x7 power supply.”
