Gujarat has always been the growth engine of India, housing many major industries with large numbers of small & medium scale enterprises as well as multinational companies.
Gujarat, with its ease of doing business and industry friendly environment is home to a number of vibrant industrial clusters, estates and special economic zones.
Out of the six nodes identified in Gujarat under the Delhi – Mumbai Industrial Corridor, Dholera Special Investment Region is the first one to be developed by the Government of Gujarat.
DSIR will be the global hub for economic activities with its world class infrastructure and premium civic facilities. To serve the logistics and cargo need of DSIR, Government of Gujarat has planned to setup an international airport in Navagam village of Taluka Dholera.
Besides handling the logistics requirement of DSIR, the proposed Greenfield Airport, will handle the spill over traffic of the existing Ahmedabad International Airport.
The proposed airport will also handle the increasing traffic from the nearby cities like Vadodara, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Nadiad and Anand and will propel an airport led economic growth in the entire region in line with other Aerotropolis worldwide. The airport project would make use of eco-friendly solutions and sustainable technologies to earn maximum carbon credits.
Government of Gujarat has formed an SPV, Dholera International Airport Company Ltd. to facilitate the project in PPP mode with the help of Project Management Consultant according to the Greenfield Airport Policy of Government of India.
Dholera International Airport Company has obtained all the necessary approvals such as site clearance, environment clearance, in-principal approval and No objection clearance etc. from Government of India. Ministry of Civil Aviation has emphasized while granting in-principle approval to make Aviation Zone in land close by airport land.
Dholera International Airport project has been declared as an 'Early Bird Project' jointly by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Delhi - Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation and the Govt of Gujarat. Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) has over 8% equity stake in DIACL.
Flood Study and Mitigation of the Dholera Airport Site and Aviation Zone – Part-I is completed by March, 2016. DIACL has already floated RFQ cum RFP through DMICDC for selection of transaction advisor to develop Dholera International Airport.
