There is a need of ware­hous­ing all over In­dia. But to­day be­cause of laws, it is not easy to get land. Take ex­am­ple of Delhi, it’s too ex­pen­sive to pur­chase a land in Delhi. There has to be a cer­tain pol­icy, which the gov­ern­ment has to an­nounce, that en­ables the ware­houses to bring lit­tle cre­dence in the ware­hous­ing sec­tor. Our lo­gis­tics cost is al­ready high as com­pared to other coun­tries, now if we get land at a high rate nat­u­rally the lo­gis­tics cost will go up. With the GST com­ing, ware­hous­ing is go­ing to be con­sol­i­dated. To make it hap­pen, in­fra­struc­ture needs to be im­proved. To bring ef­fi­ciency, fa­cil­i­ties have to be lo­cated to­gether to re­duce time.

Gov­ern­ment should have some­thing ex­clu­sive for ware­hous­ing. More­over, ware­hous­ing has to be away from the air­port or even from the cities but ac­ces­si­ble by the trucks or other modes of trans­port. Ev­ery state gov­ern­ment must have lo­gis­tics parks for the ware­hous­ing sec­tor.
