Chandigarh, December 5

Dubai-based RP Group of Companies has evinced keen interest in investing in Haryana in the fields of developing integrated multi-modal logistics hubs and affordable housing under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).

The offer was made by the founder and Managing Director of RP Group of Companies, Dr Ravi Pillai, one of the richest Indians based in Dubai, who called on Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here today.

Giving a significant boost to affordable housing under the PMAY, the group has offered to construct low-cost houses for industrial workers in Manesar, Bahadurgarh and Kundli with new technology which will ensure completion of the construction work within one year.

Dr Pillai also offered to invest in the Integrated Multi-Modal Logistics Hub at Nangal Choudhary in Mahendergarh. Aimed at decreasing the time taken in the movement of goods, this project will be developed as the largest logistics hub in north India.

Earlier, welcoming Dr Pillai, the Chief Minister said the state government planned to develop an economic corridor on both sides of the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway. The first phase of the expressway was already functional and the remaining part would be operational by March, 2018.

The CM told Dr Pillai that a high-level delegation led by him would visit Dubai to invite investors to come and invest in Haryana.

Chief Secretary DS Dhesi, Principal Secretary, Industries, Sudhir Rajpal, and other officers of the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) were also present.
