Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC)
The Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) is 1,483 km long rail corridor connecting the Jawaharlal Nehru Port near Mumbai with Dadri near Delhi. The DFC is in planning stages and is to be constructed by 2016. 39% of the corridor will pass through Rajasthan, creating new opportunities for companies located in Rajasthan to access the large Western and Northern domestic markets, as well as international markets via ports on the western seaboard.
The DFC will provide high speed, double stacked container rail connectivity that will reduce transit time, costs and increase reliability.
Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC)
A band of 150 km has been chosen on both the sides of the DFC to be developed as the DMIC. 46% of the total DMIC falls in Rajasthan. About 60% of the State's area falls within the project area of influence, including major districts such as Jaipur, Alwar, Kota and Bhilwara.
The DMIC will provide a high quality environment with state-of-the-art infrastructure for new investors. Highlights on this new infrastructure are as follows:
- Creation of a Greenfield Integrated Township in the Khushkheda-Bhiwadi-Neemrana area, with a Knowledge City housing universities, schools, colleges and support infrastructure, and an area for service activities such as IT/ITES and health services
- A greenfield international airport for passenger, cargo and MRO uses, with an integrated logistics and warehousing hub
- New road links and appropriate railway connectivity
- A dry port and logistics hub
