Government of India plans to develop a Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) linking Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai

150 Km

The proposed DFC passes through six States in India, of which, Gujarat length (1483 Km) accounts for 38% (564 Km) of total DFC

The influenced area of 150 Km, on either side of DFC is being developed as Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC)

Almost 62% of the total area of Gujarat State (18 out of 26 districts) would be benefited by DMIC development
