Konkan have caught the Eye of not only the Indian Government but also the Japanese Government. The Japanese Govt is funding the Indian Govt’s Ambitious Project, the DMIC, Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor. The major Development taking place under DMIC is the Dighi Port and its Fringe Area.
Under DMIC the Mumbai-Goa Highway i.e. NH 17 is going to be a 4 Lane Concrete Road from existing 2 Lane Tar Road. The Pune to Mangaon Road from Tamhini Ghat is going to be a 4 Lane Tar Road from existing 2 Lane Tar Road. The Tamhini Ghat is also getting a Tunnel Section cutting the travel distance by 20 Kilometres and Commute Time by 30 Minutes. All of this and many more development is going to happen in next few years and with that, it will become a 3 Hour Ride from both Pune and Mumbai! Investing in this location promises high returns.
Dighi Port, the first Greenfield port in Maharashtra, is being developed as a multipurpose, multi cargo, all weather port with deep draught, direct berthing facilities and state-of-the-art cargo handling equipment with adequate stockyards and warehousing facilities, back up area with ample land bank of approximately 1600 acres.
