    The Centre will start allocating land in all the four industrial cities being implemented under the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project from October, a top official said today.

    “Land allotment for industries will begin in October this year for anyone who wants to put up an industry. We are looking at anchor investors, we are looking for some big industries to come up but we are open to all industries,” Assocham said quoting Alkesh Kumar Sharma, CEO and MD, DMIC Development Corporation Ltd.

    Sharma said the land pricing and disposal policies have already been finalised in Gujarat and it will be also finalised in a week’s time in Maharashtra.

    “We will also be finalising it in Greater Noida and in Ujjain within this month so that by September-October we can start allotting land,” he said.

    He informed that DMICDC had already developed a detailed land use plan and that it will also soon come up with a mechanism whereby one can apply online and the land shall be allotted.

    “You can identify a plot on the Google maps, fill in and you will see complete details of the plot that this plot is for industrial purpose, the size of the plot is 20 acres and this is the type of industry you can set up,” he added.

    The type of industries that have been identified for these industrial cities are the ones that are not highly polluting unlike chemical factories and others, Sharma said.
