Ideally situated within Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, Shendra-Bidkin Industrial Area will showcase Maharashtra’s leading manufacturing industries and will be home to many of the world’s leading corporations. SBIA will join other world-class developments as one of India’s first smart and master planned industrial cities that will contribute towards creating an ecosystem for the ‘Make In India’ and ‘Make in Maharashtra’ campaigns to help the country and the state become a new economic force and achieve long-term sustainable growth,” said Apurva Chandra, IAS, Principal Secretary (Industries), Government of Maharashtra.
