Blueprint to build 24 cities: Will India's biggest infra project, DMICDC, worth $100 bn deliver?

About the project
• DMICDC (Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation) — in its first phase will set up six cities each of 40-50 sq km and one of 153 sq km — has to be "expedited" so that it spurs manufacturing growth in the country and helps the country ride out the bad times. Once completed, the mega project is expected to generate 2.15 lakh direct jobs and 6.18 lakh indirect jobs in the country. • In its first phase, DMICDC, which falls under the industry ministry and envisages creating 24 new cities in the country by 2040, will build cities around the high-speed 1,483-kmlong dedicated freight corridor (DFC), a fast-progressing railway network funded by the Japanese government.
