UP Budget of Rs 500 crore for acquiring land in Defence Corridor


The Yogi government has allocated ₹500 crore for its prestigious Defence Corridor project in the Bundelkhand region through which it aims to generate around one lakh jobs in the region that faces subsequent droughts.

The Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) will set the process in motion later this month. The UPEIDA is the nodal agency for acquiring land for the project. It has identified 5000 hectares of government and farmers’ land in Bundelkhand for rolling out the project. Small and heavy arms manufacturing units will come up in this corridor.

The Yogi government has also invited international arms manufacturers, including Boeing Commercial Airlines of United States, to set up their units in the Bundelkhand Defence Corridor.  Read More
