Two buildings of GIFT City to open on September
Narendra Modi government's ambitious plan to create a global financial hub near state capital, Gandhinagar, will get a step closer to reality.
The construction of first two towers (each having 30 stories) at Gujarat International Financial Tech-City (GIFT City) is likely to complete by August-end and the government is planning to throw the towers open for occupants by September 2012.
"The construction is in full swing at the site and developers are constructing one floor every week. Already 25 floors have been completed and we are hopeful to open it soon after construction work," said Jha, who has also served as head of transportation and communication at CIDCO - New Town Development Authority of Navi Mumbai.
The two towers are located in the non-SEZ area or domestic service area of GIFT City. However, the government envisages to set up an International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) within the GIFT SEZ.
