Uttar Pradesh approves new industrial city in Bundelkhand for economic development

The Uttar Pradesh government has given the green light for the creation of a new industrial city in the Bundelkhand region. This decision is aimed at replicating the success of Noida (New Okhla Industrial Development Authority), an industrial city located in the state. The decision was made during a Cabinet meeting led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. This move is part of the state government's efforts to integrate the Bundelkhand region into the broader development plans of Uttar Pradesh and to generate job opportunities through infrastructure development.

Creating a new industrial township

Under the "Chief Minister Industrial Area Expansion and New Industrial Area Promotion Scheme," the Bundelkhand Industrial Development Authority (BIDA) will establish a new industrial township in Jhansi, following the model of Noida. In the initial phase, this industrial city will be developed by acquiring 35,000 acres of land from 33 revenue villages in Jhansi.

Improving economic prospects
