Dholera SIR Projects

India used to be termed as a 'land of farmers'. During its early years, its soul resided in the rural parts while urban India was slowly developing. It's a flip situation now.

Over the years, India became a part of industrial revolution which quickly led to rising opportunities in the cities and decreasing incomes in the rural parts. Hence, urbanization happened and happened too rapidly as a result of which the movement of people from rural parts to urban ones took place at an unexpected pace. This led to depletion of urban resources and drop in the living standards in the cities. It had thus become imperative for the government to find a solution to the situation and the answer came in form of 100 smart cities. Ones that shall be built on self-sustainable model, provide for basic amenities, better environment, employment opportunities and good living standard.

Dholera SIR Project, the first of the 100 smart cities is in making and is expected to be completely developed by 2040. Located in the Gulf of Khambhat region near Ahmedabad, Dholera Project is Mr. Modi’s own project; thus the extensive support from state and central government. It shall develop over 920 sq. kms and envelop 22 villages in its growth path.
