Gujarat government is going to set up new industrial estates in eight districts of the state. The decision has been taken with the intent of boosting the capabilities of manufacturers of products like ceramics, clocks, toys, medical devices, auto ancillary, engineering products and food products.
Chief Minister Vijay Rupani announced the new eight industrial estate of Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) in eight districts including Banaskantha, Jamnagar, Morbi, Gandhinagar, Patan, Rajkot, Anand and Mahisagar.
The move is aimed at encashing the prevailing anti-China sentiment across several countries and positioning Indian manufacturing players on the global platform. “This will be a big push for the small businesses to compete in the international market. Morbi will get a model GIDC estate, which will see many new units from clocks, toys and paper makers. We are getting ready to meet the global demand which has opened after sentiment against China,” said Prakash Varmora, President of Federation of Industries and Associations (Gujarat).
The industries that will get a push includes marble cutting and polishing industry, brass parts industry, Morbi ceramic, clock and toys industry, food and agro-processing industry, auto ancillary industry, medical devices industry and the engineering industries.
“We want to develop an economic circle with an aim to provide opportunities to several people through large number of MSME units. These estates will provide Rs 1,223 crore capital investment and 20,000 new jobs in future,” said Rupani.
