The Modi government has given a new gift to Assam. The country's first multi-modal park will be built in Assam, today the Minister of Roads and Transport Nitin Gadkari laid the foundation stone of the scheme through video conferencing. A total of 25 multi modal logistic parks will be built in the country. A total of Rs 694 crore will be spent on the Multimodal logistics park to be built in Assam.
All mode connectivity
The multi-model logistic park will be built under the Bharatmala Pariyojana. There will be direct connectivity to road, rail, water and airways from this logistic park. This multi-model park will not only boost tourism in North Eastern states including Assam, but will also strengthen the economy of the state and the country.
After laying the foundation stone of the logistic park, Nitin Gadkari said that the Assam government should consider running a sea-plane to promote tourism. Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Union Ministers Jitendra Singh and VK Singh were also present in this program.
What will benefit from multi modal logistic parks
The government is building such logistic parks in many parts of the country under the Logistics Efficiency Enhancement Program (LEEP). The scheme will provide new strength to the country's logistic sector. After the completion of this scheme, connectivity from Assam to the rest of the country will improve. Companies from India and abroad will come to do business in Jogighopa in Assam.
With this, this area will create new employment opportunities for the people and the economy of the country will get support. With this park, movement of goods along with people will also be very easy.
After the introduction of this scheme, the cost of the logistics sector will come down, their warehouse costs will also be reduced. The pollution caused by vehicles will be reduced and congestion will also be cut. At present, the logistics cost in India is much higher than other countries. Logistic cost in India is 13 percent of the total value of goods, while in other economies it is only 8 percent.
