Moreover, the Corporation is also developing a multi-level manufacturing hub in Mundka-Ranikhera area and a knowledge based industries park in Baprola area in West Delhi.

The knowledge-based industries park is estimated to cost Rs 1,800 crore and is being developed in 83 acres, the DSIIDC official said, adding that the park is expected to provide direct and indirect employments to about 2.7 lakh people.

"The project will cater to specific needs of industries like information technology, IT-enabled services, media, gems and jewellery," he said.

The initiatives and projects are part of DSIIDC's plans to bring more investments and industries to Delhi.
