National Industrial Corridor Cooperation Project


With projects such as new Highways and New Dedicated Freight Corridors the development alongside this infrastructure was but obvious and thus making this in a planned manner became a new project named "National Industrial Corridor Development Cooperation". 
Such projects are growing and seeing huge Government investment flow which will be aimed at the development of futuristic industrial cities and investment destinations in the world. There will more employment opportunities and will see economic growth in the overall path of the rail and road.

Currently, as of March 2021, we see 11 Projects under NICDC are carried and planned. Each corridor will have development projects which will cover investment regions, industrial areas, economic regions, industrial nodes and townships, integrated manufacturing clusters, and stand-alone projects.

There will be about 30 such projects which will be completed in phases up till 2025. 

11 Corridor Projects are:
1. Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor - DMIC
2. Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor - CBIC
3. Amritsar-Kolkata Industrial Corridor - AKIC
4. East Cost Industrial Corridor - ECIC with Vizag Chennai Industrial Corridor - VCIC
5. Bengaluru-Mumbai Industrial Corridor - BMIC
6. Extension of CBIC to Kochi via Coimbatore - CBIC Ex
7. Hyderabad-Warangal Industrial Corridor - HWIC
8. Hyderabad-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor - HBIC
9. Hyderabad-Nagpur Industrial Corridor - HNIC
10. Odisha Economic Corridor - OEC
11. Delhi-Nagpur Industrial Corridor - DNIC

Each corridor has its own mainstream which can be seen as:

Delhi-Mumbai Corridor is built beside Western Dedicated Rail Corridor and Amritsar-Kolkata will be built beside Eastern Dedicated Rail Corridor. The other Dedicated freight corridor in the south is still to be laid on the ground thus the IC will be built aside the National Highway.

As we talked that the project will be taken into a phased manner:
