Amritsar Delhi Kolkata Industrial Corridor Project

The Amritsar-Delhi-Kolkata Industrial Corridor Project, an economic corridor to connect Amritsar, Delhi and Kolkata under the Industrial Zone, has been approved by the Government of India. The project was proposed by Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP).

The corridor has been divided into two phases. It will be designed following the pattern of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) along the Eastern Dedicated Freight corridor.

In order to ensure a well organised preparatory work for the construction of the corridor, the Prime Minister of India has established an Inter-Ministerial Group (IMG). The IMG includes:
  • Secretary, DIPP Chairman
  • Secretary, Shipping/Chairman, IWAI Member
  • Secretary, DEA Member
  • Secretary, Urban Development Member
  • Chairman, Railway Board Member
  • Secretary, RTH Member
Some of the recommendations submitted by the IMG to the Prime Minister included:
  • The project will be lined up with the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC).
  • An Apex Monitoring Authority will be set up for overall guidance, planning and approvals, setting up of timelines for implementation and monitoring. This will be chaired by the Union Minister for Commerce and Industry. Also, Amritsar-Delhi-Kolkata Industrial Corridor Development Corporation will be constituted as a corporate entity.
  • The ADKIC will involve both the Public Private Partnership (PPP) and non-Public Private Partnership. The Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) or Implementation Agency will develop the non-Public Private Partnership section through grant-in-aid.
  • The ADKIC must be stretched for a length of 150-200 km in a phased manner on both sides of the EDFC.
First phase of the ADKIC Project

It has been estimated that the first phase will cost a sum of Rs. 5,749 crore. The first phase will spread over West Bengal, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Bihar.

As recommended by the IMG, in the first phase, minimum one cluster of 10 sq. km. is to be constructed by each state. The cluster will be called an 'Integrated Manufacturing Cluster', 40% area of which would be granted for activities related to production.
