A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Hyderabad-based Cerestra Group and the state government to establish Gujarat-Special Education Region in Dholera, which would be spread across 1,000 acres.
Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said, “This Special Education Region will be important in establishing Gujarat in a knowledge-driven economy. Also the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor is being constructed as part of the ‘Greenfield Industrial City’. DSIR is currently equipped with various services and also has strategically useful connectivity options through Ahmedabad-Dholera Expressway, Dholera International Airport and Bhimnath-Dholera Rail Line.”
