Reliance Group to open international school beside Mihan SEZ in Nagpur


After the ambitious mega Aerospace Park project in Mihan, Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group is all set to cater to the kids with education of international repute. The groups want to open an international level school along side Mihan Special Economic Zone (SEZ). For that sake the group has sought additional land. However no proposal has been sent to Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) for the land.
According to sources, officials of Anil Dhirubhai Ambai Group (ADAG) had expressed strong desire to set up an international level school in non-SEZ area with MADC. They recently had a meeting with MADC top officials in Mumbai. Though no official proposal was handed over to them during the meet, but according to sources, ADAG has sought additional land to set up school.
The vice president and managing director of MADC Vishwas Patil said they will consider the proposal if received. “We will welcome any such proposal from the ADAG to set up school out Mihan SEZ,” he said.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that ADAG will take possession of 289 acres of land allotted to it for Dhirubhai Ambani Aerospace Park (DAAP), which is set to come up at Mihan SEZ, in two phases.
It is learnt that ADAG has paid `17 crore to the MADC, which is approximately 10 per cent of the total amount for acquiring 289 acres of land at Mihan Sez.
It is pertinent to note here that the State government on August 27 this year had allotted 289 acres of land near Nagpur for Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group”s upcoming aerospace park that entails an investment of over `6,500 crore ($1 billion).
The Mihan SEZ with a residential zone covers a total area of 40.25 square kms.
The group plans to develop DAAP on the lines of a smart city which will offer “One-Stop-Hub” for all aerospace requirements.
The plans for DAAP envisage the setting up of assembly lines and manufacturing facilities for fixed wing aircraft, aerostructure for commercial transporters and choppers.
The company estimated that DAAP will create 1,500 jobs in the primary sector, around 3,500 in the secondary and 5,000 in the tertiary sector.
