The rapid pro­lif­er­a­tion of In­dus­trial Parks

The ini­tia­tives take by var­i­ous state gov­ern­ments have en­cour­aged de­vel­op­ers to foray into multi-prod­uct in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment park across In­dia. Ashish ra­heja, man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Ra­heja uni­ver­sal elab­o­rated

In the last few years’ realestate has seen a fast growth in the num­ber of en­ter­prises mov­ing to in­dus­trial parks. The Govern­ment of In­dia has al­ready set up in­dus­trial cor­ri­dors like Chen­nai Ban­ga­lore In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor (CBIC) and Delhi Mum­bai In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor (DMIC) to cre­ate new man­u­fac­tur­ing des­ti­na­tions and pro­mote in­dus­trial growth. Like­wise, many state gov­ern­ments have also been en­cour­ag­ing en­ter­prises to move to in­dus­trial parks. Though the choice of city or area dif­fers from one de­vel­oper to an­other, it is clear that de­vel­op­ers pre­fer set­ting up in­dus­trial ar­eas in planned cities (Navi Mum­bai, for ex­am­ple) to pro­vide en­ter­prises with mod­ern in­fra­struc­ture and good trans­porta­tion ac­cess. In ad­di­tion to be­ing a part of Delhi Mum­bai In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor (DMIC), Navi Mum­bai also meets the highly ex­act­ing in­fra­struc­ture needs of en­ter­prises. Be­sides opt­ing for planned cities, the de­vel­op­ers de­ploy world-class skilled ar­chi­tects and de­sign­ers to en­sure the fi­nal out­come meets the strin­gent re­quire­ments of in­dus­trial parks.

the chal­lenges

Like any large-scale project, de­vel­op­ing in­dus­trial parks comes with its own unique set of chal­lenges. It’s hard to per­suade small busi­nesses and start-ups to move to the in­dus­trial park. While the ba­sic need to en­sure un­in­ter­rupted power sup­ply to the in­dus­trial park is a must, de­vel­op­ers must also ac­cen­tu­ate the of­fer­ing by adding high-qual­ity light­ing, el­e­va­tors, air-con­di­tion­ing, build­ing au­to­ma­tion, and power dis­tri­bu­tion sys­tems. Also, es­sen­tial is the pro­vi­sion of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion, broad­cast­ing, road man­age­ment, in­dus­trial drainage treat­ment, and wa­ter and waste wa­ter treat­ment sys­tems.

An in­dus­trial park de­vel­op­ment project is far more com­plex than con­ven­tional in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment projects. In ad­di­tion to the ex­tra fo­cus on plan­ning, con­tin­u­ous fea­si­bil­ity test­ing, use of lat­est tech­nolo­gies etc, de­vel­op­ers of­ten have to spend ad­di­tional time and cost to meet the con­tin­u­ously evolv­ing reg­u­la­tions of the state govern­ment and lo­cal au­thor­i­ties. The mul­ti­ple rounds of clear­ances needed are an­other de­ter­rent. The com­plex ap­proval pro­ce­dure and red tape dis­suade many de­vel­op­ers from build­ing in­dus­trial parks.

The cen­tral, as well as state gov­ern­ments need to sim­plify the en­tire process if they want more in­vest­ment in in­dus­trial park de­vel­op­ment. A faster clear­ance process, new ini­tia­tives and fo­cus on over­all in­fra­struc­ture around a pro­posed site would help en­able faster growth in this sec­tor.

Ra­heja District ii – a MOD­ERN in­dus­trial PARK The des­ti­na­tion in­dus­trial park is strate­gi­cally sit­u­ated, a mere 30 min­utes away from sev­eral sig­nif­i­cant Mum­bai Met­ro­pol­i­tan Re­gion (MMR) lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Chem­bur, Thane, Cen­tral Mum­bai, Powai and more. ad­di­tion­ally, the project is lo­cated close to na­tional high­ways, rail­way sta­tions, air­ports and sea­ports. The lo­ca­tion is also prox­i­mate to var­i­ous planned fu­ture de­vel­op­ments in­clud­ing the Navi Mum­bai In­ter­na­tional air­port and the Mum­bai Trans-har­bour link.

Ra­heja District II part 1 EDI­SON – A has re­ceived its BCC. The fu­tur­is­tic project metic­u­lously planned lay­out and mod­ern in­dus­trial units are scal­able to spe­cific re­quire­ments, mak­ing them suit­able for mi­cro, small and medium en­ter­prises (MSME) such as en­gi­neer­ing, pro­duc­tion, ware­hous­ing, stor­age and pack­ag­ing. Sprawled across 27 acres of land, it al­lows for a flex­i­ble blend of in­dus­tries, from lo­gis­tics op­er­a­tions, labs and test­ing, as­sem­bly, in­dus­trial man­u­fac­tur­ing, ser­vice ac­tiv­i­ties and many more.

Fa­cil­i­ties - Each unit has fea­tures to fa­cil­i­tate busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, from load­ing un­load­ing bays to trans­port ve­hi­cle lifts for speedy trans­port and elim­i­nate time con­sum­ing process of shift­ing the goods from ground level to floor level.

Work­shops - With columns­free units and op­ti­mum floor-tofloor height of 16 feet, in­clud­ing loft, the project has been de­signed to de­fine struc­tural ex­cel­lence at each step. While think­ing at mi­cro-level, in­dus­trial, high – strength floor­ing tiles, which can with­stand heavy loads, have been fixed across the pre­mium prop­erty. Sim­i­larly, the mez­za­nine has vitri­fied tiles.

Con­nec­tiv­ity - With low cap­i­tal cost, am­ple hu­man re­sources, prox­im­ity to raw ma­te­ri­als, and ded­i­cated ac­cess to util­ity ser­vices, the space fos­ters an en­vi­ron­ment that pro­motes pro­duc­tiv­ity. Navi Mum­bai is also hub for skilled force across in­dus­tries while its cen­tral con­nec­tiv­ity fur­ther boosts ac­cess for the work­force.
