The Uttar Pradesh government is investing Rs 7,064 crore in developing a multi-modal logistics hub (MMLH) in Dadri, Greater Noida, as part of its goal to achieve a $1 trillion economy. This ambitious project will span 823 acres, with 455 acres dedicated to core development. The MMLH aims to transform Dadri into India’s largest logistics hub, functioning as a world-class freight handling facility and dry port.

Key developments include commercial and administrative facilities on 17.5 acres, along with a rail yard and additional projects covering 350 acres. The hub will offer comprehensive services such as container handling, warehousing, cold storage, processing, de-stuffing, stuffing, and value-added packing. It will also provide seamless rail connectivity with essential amenities like rail platforms, customs clearance, cargo segregation areas, truck parking zones, and extensive green spaces.

The project is progressing under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model, overseen by the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority and aligned with the National Industrial Corridor Development and Implementation Trust (NICDIT) guidelines. A detailed action plan has been meticulously crafted, following Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s directives, to expedite all initiatives.

The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority has prepared the Master Detailed Project Report (DPR) for constructing the approach track and a Rail Over Rail (ROR) bridge extending from New Dadri station to the MMLH boundary. The Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL) has approved the DPR for railway tracks and terminal stations within the MMLH. Tender documentation for land acquisition and signaling processes for the approach track has also been finalized.

Additionally, trunk infrastructure development, including boundary work, roads, canals, bridges, utility relocation, and water and power supply, is progressing through various implementation phases. Located on the eastern and western dedicated freight corridors, the MMLH in Dadri is set to become a central hub for efficient freight transit, enhancing India’s logistics capabilities and contributing significantly to the state’s economic growth.
