It provides visitors with a joyful and relaxing environment on both sides, offering recreational facilities, well-maintained gardens, and gazebo tents.
Moreover, the canal has a crucial role as the central hub of Dholera SIR. Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched this significant project in 2013 when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.
It addresses a crucial problem in this low-lying industrial area. They use fears of flooding from heavy rains to discourage potential investors. Despite the attractive incentives and the promise of profitable memorandums of understanding (MOUs), these concerns have deterred many investors.

Additionally, this effort aims to cut down the number of steps and approvals needed for different business tasks. As a result, businesses can navigate through processes more efficiently, saving time and resources.
Water and Wastewater System: In our water and wastewater system, we aim to have no waste left. Additionally, we treat all the wastewater to high standards, making it suitable for non-drinking and industrial use. To save water, we use smart metering and SCA.
Solid Waste Management: We make sure to collect all the solid waste. Moreover, the waste that can break down is recycled and turned into compost. We even use it to make energy.
Stormwater Management and Rainwater Harvesting: We have systems to catch and use rainwater and stormwater. Furthermore, rainwater harvesting uses an open earthen canal. This helps recharge the water source and uses it again for plants.
Power Management: We always have electricity available. Additionally, we use smart technology to minimize power loss. We also follow rules to create energy from renewable sources.
Experience Life, Work, and Play
Dholera Industrial City aims to meet the diverse needs of businesses and industries. Additionally, it will create jobs and opportunities. Moreover, the social infrastructure ensures that employees and their families can live nearby.
Furthermore, there’s a hierarchy of open green spaces, including neighborhood parks, community parks, and a linear park within walking distance. These spaces, along with recreation and sports zones, provide areas for playing and leisure. Therefore, this establishes a foundation for a Live-Work-Play community. Additionally, special zones have been designated for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) housing.
