Global city in Gurgaon district of Haryana: The state of Haryana is all set to get a major infrastructure boost with the state government announcing plans to develop a global city in the Gurugram district, adjoining the national capital. The global city will be developed over 1,000 acres area. According to Haryana Industries and Commerce Minister Vipul Goel, the global city in Gurgaon district will serve as an important node to Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) sub-region of Haryana. Also, it carries an investment potential of $15 billion, he said. According to official sources quoted in an IE report, for the development of the global city, the government aims at starting auctioning of plots by December-January as finalisation process of the proposed master plan was under way.

Around Rs 17,328 crore will be invested for this, Goel stated. Further to this, he informed that the project would be funded by Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA) and the project has been included in the JICA Rolling Plan.
