Yogi seeks coordination with defence ministry over UP defence corridor


Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials to expedite work on the defence corridor project in the state. He has instructed the nodal agency, UP Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA), to coordinate with the defence ministry, so that defence manufacturing units can be set up in the corridor, which is estimated to attract investment to the tune of Rs 20,000 crore.

On February 15, 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation of Bundelkhand Defence Industrial Corridor in Jhansi district. He had announced the corridor, after inaugurating the UP Investors Summit in Lucknow on February, 21, 2018.

The defence manufacturing infrastructure would span 6 nodes at Aligarh, Agra, Jhansi, Kanpur, Lucknow and Chitrakoot and create an estimated 250,000 jobs. Read More
