Punjab government is planning to develop the Zirakpur-Tepla- Rajpura belt as a logistics and warehousing hub. The government is also planning to build an integrated manufacturing cluster at Rajpura spanning across 1,000 acres under the Amritsar-Kolkata Industrial Corridor (AKIC). Rajpura is also being developed as a knowledge hub.
Zirakpur’s strategic location as the intersecting point on the Shimla-Delhi-Patiala highway makes it a natural hub for warehousing. Zirakpur already has many warehousing and logistics units that serve the industrial units of the region. The state government will give infrastructure support for the development of this belt.
The Punjab Small Industries and Export Corporation (PSIEC) has identified 206 acres for the first phase of the IMC. Mohali Industries Association president and Ardisons Associates director Gagan Chhabra says: “The Amritsar-Kolkata Industrial Corridor is welcome but it has been delayed due to bureaucratic hurdles.” He suggests developing any industrial or logistics hub, and says the state government should consider giving concession in land price to entrepreneurs.
Another 100 Crores has been allotted for betterment of infrastructural facilities and beautification of the town which includes a 100 acre park. The park will include badminton court, walkways, basketball court, go-carting, swimming pool etc. - somewhat like the Leisure Valley in Chandigarh. Without doubt Zirakpur will become the next model city in next couple of years.
