Environmentally disastrous Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project is a government led project covering 1483 km in length across six states in India. It is a joint venture between India and Japan, both having contributed equally to the initial Rs. 1000 crore fund.

DMIC project will affect six states, namely, U.P, National Capital Region of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra. Its end terminals are planned at Dadri in the National Capital Region of Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru Port near Mumbai.

The project will affect a band of 150 km to 200 km on both sides of the dedicated freight corridor. It    incorporates 11 investment regions and 13 industrial areas of about 100 - 250 sq. km each. It will affect    approximately 180 million people, 14 % of country's population. The project has nine junction stations including Vasai (near Mumbai), Gothangan (near Surat), Makarpura (near Baroda), Amli (near Ahmedabad), Palanpur, Marwar, Phulera, Rewari and Tughlakabad.

The endorsement of Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor project, the planned Chennai Bengaluru Industrial Corridor and the idea of Bengaluru Mumbai Industrial Corridor in the Union Budget speech is an act of approving environmental destruction of these regions.
