The Government of Uttar Pradesh has decided to develop a network of 32 industrial cities along the five expressways in the state. 

The Yogi Adityanath-led UP government has planned the development of these industrial cities as part of the vision to take the state's economy to $1 trillion. 

The Adityanath's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led UP government has said that the project would generate employment for lakhs of people. 

In a statement on Twitter, the Government on UP on Saturday said, "Under the guidance of UP CM Mr Yogi Adityanath, a network of 32 industrial cities is going to be developed along the five expressways in Uttar Prades. Under this project, 84 villages in 23 districts along three expressways have been identified. Now, procurement of land would start in these villages. These industrial cities would be developed along the expressways. It will speed up the state's government initiative to make UP a $1 trillion economy. Employment would also be generated for lakhs."


The three expressways that have been identified are: Purvanchal Expressway from Lucknow to Gazipur, Ganga Expressway from Meerut to Prayagraj, and Bundelkhand Expressway from Etawah to Chitrakoot. The Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) would implement the project. 

For every industrial city, 100-600 acre land would be procured, according to a report shared by the Government of UP. After the land-procurement, investors would be allocated plots as per their requirements. 

In these 32 industrial cities, the industries that would be in focus would be logistics, food processing, chemical, dairy, information technology (IT), etc.

Noting that the UP has the largest network of expressways in the country, the UP government has decided to implement the proposals presented in the global investors summit earlier this year in February.
