The project, which covers a total area of 8,500 acres, comprises of three nodes: Krishnapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, Tumakuru in Karnataka, and Ponneri in Tamil Nadu, with Tumakuru being prioritized for development. Phase A of the project is expected to attract investments worth around ₹7,000 crore over 5-6 years, driving growth and prosperity in the region.
The industrial township in Tumakuru will boast world-class infrastructure, with easy access to transportation links such as the Mumbai-Chennai NH-48, Bengaluru International Airport (115 km away), Tumakuru Railway Station (25 km away), and Mangaluru Port (300 km away). The multi-modal connectivity will ensure seamless movement of raw materials and finished goods.
The project will be a mixed-use development with a combination of industrial, institutional, residential, commercial, and green spaces, making it a self-sustainable and resilient smart industrial city. The Prime Minister highlighted the importance of this project in promoting Atmanirbhar Bharat and advancing the principles of PM-GatiShakti.
