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.
