Understanding the Gujarat Industrial Policy 2020 (Part: 4/4): Industrial infrastructure in Gujarat

Gujarat industrial infrastructure

In the Gujarat Industrial Policy launched in August 2020, a lot of emphasis has been placed on the state’s industrial infrastructure. While the industrial infrastructure in Gujarat is already well developed with multiple land options and industrial parks and clusters for investors in different sectors, the new policy includes many new and improved benefits. 

More notably, the policy stresses focus on infrastructure which is environment-friendly thereby, declaring its commitment towards sustainable industrial development and focus on preserving industrial activity for the future to come. This pivot towards measures to encourage industry to adopt environmentally-sound methods is a noteworthy one and it makes Gujarat one of the first states in India to do so.
