Jharkhand Govt is gearing up to have its first ever Electronic Manufacturing Cluster.

This Cluster is set to be inaugurated. Once operational it can be eastern India first and biggest Electronic Manufacturing Cluster in Adityapur Industrial Area near Jamshedpur. 

On 29th of December, the Chief Minister of Jharkhand Mr Hemant Soren took the first step towards making Jharkhand a hub of electronic manufacturing by inaugurating the infrastructure built in this cluster.

The government's goal is to make it a hub of electronic manufacturing units. Multiple units in the region have already started working on their production plans. Through this EMC project, the government plans to bring investments into the state and usher employment opportunities for the skilled youth of Jharkhand.

* 45,000 Jobs and investment of 500Cr is expected*

So far 23 units have been allotted land in EMC to start their own units and the process of providing land to 4 units is underway. 

The factory is being built by 23 entrepreneurs. If all the entrepreneurs in the electronic manufacturing cluster establish their units, then about 20 thousand direct and about 25 thousand indirect jobs will be created and investment of about 500 crore rupees will be ensured in Jharkhand.

The present government is fully focused on the electronic manufacturing cluster. The Chief Minister of Jharkhand has directed the Secretary of Industry to regularly monitor the project progress and ensure ease for coming investors. 

Following this, the Secretary of Industry has issued necessary directives to all the officials to visit the clusters and promote new investments.

As per the JIADA authority the land price at EMC is quoted at Rs 90 Lakh/acre, but to felicitate investors and create employment opportunities the land block is being allotted at a subsidy of 50%. Apart from this, flatted factory unit can be rented at a rate of Rs 15/Sq. ft.

*Attractive features of EMC*

The EMC project is expanded across 82 acres of land. Out of which 49 acres of land will be allocated to 51 electronic manufacturing units. The project primarily being promoted by JIADA is being built at a total cost of Rs. 186cr with a support of Rs. 41.48cr from the central government under the electronic manufacturing scheme.

Within the campus, a 05-acre land block has been allocated for the basic infrastructure of EMC. In this specified area, 04 buildings of 05 floors each have been constructed with all basic amenities ready to be handed over to the 92 electronic manufacturing units. 

The government is primarily aiming to attract electronic chip making companies. Apart from chips making units, space will also be provided for manufacturing of LED TVs, LED bulbs and electronic parts used in mobile and automobiles.

The EMC area consists of the flatted factories, Testing centres, Truck Parking, school, mall, health centre, employee hostel, restaurant, etc. Each flattened factory is built across 1135sq ft. to 2000 sq ft floor area. Each unit has been provided with electricity & water supply for the workers working at the production unit.

Apart from this campus, an attractive feature is the state of the art entrance gate attached to the Administrative Building of EMC. A separate office for the EMC officials has been built within the campus premises. To facilitate Electronic Manufacturing Units operating at EMC, a warehouse has been constructed for the use of flattened factories to store their product.

To ensure a smooth commute, proper road networks have been established around the EMC area. Also, sewerage and drainage systems have been laid along with the amenity of park and street lights. 

A facility for water storage has also been made so that manufacturing units do not face any problem.
