On Thursday the Rajasthan assembly said that the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) passing through 600-km from Rajasthan would benefit the entire state in terms of investment and promotion of business.
Replying to a starred question of BJP MLA Rao Rajendra Singh, Industry Minister Gajendra Singh Kheenvsar told the house that a Rajasthan Special Investment Region Bill-2015 covering DMIC issue was ready for Cabinet approval before it would be placed in the Assembly.
After passing of this proposed bill, DMIC would secure more powers and its activities would be enhanced for promotion and investment in business, Kheenvsar said.
On the objections raised by Rao on shifting of the proposed airport, the minister said that setting up of the airport was shifted to Kotkasim (Alwar district) because it would be close to Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, while Jaipur-Dausa area was close to Jaipur Airport.
The Minister also said that the Airport Authority of India (AAI) has given permission for the proposed airport while permission of the Civil Aviation and Defense Ministry was awaited . The land was acquired for DMIC and there was no irregularity in it, he added.
