Pawan Agarwal added, “GIDA is being developed as an excellent industrial area in line with the vision of the Chief Minister. The process of implementing the investment proposals received at the Global Investors Summit in the ground-breaking ceremony is also progressing rapidly.”

It is worth mentioning here that the GIDA, as per the intention of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, is consistently enriching its land bank to ensure that investors receive land plots according to their requirements. Additionally, the process of allocating land to entrepreneurs and connecting their plots with infrastructure development is also progressing rapidly.

Agrawal also mentioned that GIDA has received a target of Rs 12,500 crore for the ground-breaking ceremony. So far, approximately two-thirds of the target has been achieved. The allocation of new plots will further contribute to GIDA’s progress beyond the set goals. Small, medium, and large plots have been developed according to the needs of every investor and entrepreneur.

Notably, GIDA has emerged as the preferred destination for investors over the last six years, similar to Noida due to improved law and order situation as well as industry-friendly and transparent policies of the Yogi government. During the Global Investors Summit held in February, Gorakhpur received investment proposals worth Rs 1.71 lakh crore
