Dholera Smart City is the future city of Gujarat is again alive with fiery
activities. The first greenfield smart city Dholera SIR (
Special Investment Region ) is accelerating the industrial growth ensuring the
overall growth of the Indian economy. Today lets see how technological
innovations in Dholera SIR is changing the face of Indian Industries.
Mega Projects and Technological Innovations in Dholera SIR
The city has flourished it’s smartness by choosing the ABCD
(Administration and Business Center for Dholera) building design.
ABCD is located in a commercial zone and is the central admin
office. Backed by technology, all legal permissions will be administered
through the single window clearance feature of this building. Through this one
doesn’t need to visit different counters to get any legal work done.
Additionally, the structure would operate as the command and control center for
ICT and SCADA sensors. Meaning, in case
there’s even a minor fire anywhere in the city, these SCADA sensors will
immediately report it to the ABCD building.
Dholera International Airport
The dholera international airport is expected to have two
runways of 2910m and 4000m with parallel taxiways and an annual capacity of 50
million passengers. The biggest highlight is that it is located amongst
prominent industrial cities like Rajkot, Vadodara, and Ahmedabad. This
development can significantly reduce air traffic at Ahmedabad airport.
Giving an impetus to the city, the Ahmedabad-DSIR Monorail receives a positive
nod. The project received an affirmation in terms of technical and financial
assistance under the DMIC (Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor) project. The
monorail is said to have seven stations parallel to the Ahmedabad-Dholera
expressway. The duration from DSIR to Ahmedabad is expected to be 45 minutes.
Moreover, to propel connectivity, Dholera also receives a Dedicated Freight
Corridor (DFC) with computerized control. Out of the total 1483kms corridor,
38% falls in Gujarat which has attracted about 90 Billion USD investments.
Similarly, six mega industrial nodes have been proposed for the State.
Larsen and Toubro
To go green with developments, Larsen and Toubro will ensure
efficient waste management by constructing an ETP (Effluent Treatment
Plant) to treat industrial effluents. This plant will successfully detoxify the
effluents which could be then safely released into water bodies.
G-SER at Dholera Special
Investment Region (DSIR)
Recently, the government has
signed an MoU with Cerestra Ventures for establishing a Gujarat Special
Education Region(G-SER). It has the development potential of
5000 acres of land in DSIR comprising university district, discovery
district, and innovation district along with student housing and sports
Invite To Tech-Giants
The city has invited technological giants such as Wipro, IBM, and Cisco to create a city that garners
ICT. The Trillion Dollar Baby’s entire networking framework will
be backed by these three consultancies.
The city’s infrastructure approach has been a trunk
infrastructure. This means Dholera Smart City would be a dig-free city. Unlike other cities
that constantly have to dig. Dholera’s one time dig will support underground
Gas Pipelines, Sewage, and other drain lines. Through this infrastructure, the
city will never succumb to floods or any other drainage nuisances.

Dholera SIR offers a “Plug n Play” approach. This approach
is extremely favourable to investors and corporates. It simply means that the
infrastructure is fully available and one can simply start different
