NEW DELHI: About 800 acres of the total land the Haryana government got back from Reliance Haryana SEZ Limited (RHSL) in February last year will be developed as a global city having all the attributes of a smart city as the Narendra Modi government has envisioned.

"The city shall be one of its kind in India. It will be designed by integrating smart community concepts ranging from water supply and power to integration of IT services in managing various utilities of the area. The project components would include festive and leisure (components), including an exhibition and convention centre, high value innovation and knowledge industries, central business district and township etc," says the concept note on the global city.

The project will be developed by a special entity through a 50:50 partnership between the Haryana State Industrial & Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC).

While the state finance minister said on Tuesday his government would investigate how the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda government did not invite bids for the scrapped SEZ project, the new government seems to be keen on the global city project in the outskirts of Gurgaon.

In response to an RTI application filed by a Gurgaon-based activist, Aseem Takyar, the HSIIDC said DMICDC has appointed a consultant for preparing the master plan for the global city project. Sources in DMICDC said the state agency is working on the site boundary.

According to the RTI reply, the board of directors of HSIIDC had approved the setting up of a joint venture in its meeting on March 14, 2014. "Work is going on and the project may be rolled out by the end of this year," a government source said.

The concept note also mentioned that any excess land would be reserved for an exclusive township of HSIIDC and its "monetization to compensate for the opportunity cost of the land".
