Global City to replace SEZ in Gurgaon
The Haryana Government has planned to build a Global City in Gurgaon on the 1383acre land which was earlier meant to build SEZ (Special Economic Zone). The sprawling land in Garhi Harsaru was earlier given to Mukesh Ambani's company in order to construct a Special Economic Zone, however somehow the plan got shelved. The state government had acquired the land from the farmers in 2006 although Reliance has decided to return the land back to the government.

The decision on the proposed plan will be taken by the cabinet at the earliest. The current plan is to come up with an industrial area along with exhibition cum convention centre. 

The ambitious project of the state government will kick start in collaboration with Delhi- Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) where several international architects will be roped in to make it a world- class project. The land for the eco- smart city will be given by the state government whereas the funding for the same will be provided by DMIC.

 “The project will see an exhibition cum convention centre where some prominent architects will be involved to make it one of the best projects of Gurgaon. The area will be infused with updated technology, innovation and knowledge. The idea is to bring innovation and high value technology together”, said Y S Malik, Additional Chief Secretary (industries) as reported by TOI. 

 The SEZ was a joint venture between Reliance Ventures Ltd (RVL) and Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC). The Haryana Government asked RVL to return the 1383 acres land in 1983 after the project got shelved. The SEZ was supposed to be the biggest SEZ of the country.
