The Odisha government is setting up a Greenfield Electronic Manufacturing Cluster (EMC) at Khurda district of the state that would house over 100 electronics manufacturing units.


The cost of the project is estimated at Rs 209.64 crores. The aggregate investment in the cluster is projected at Rs 979 crores, which includes investment by individual units in plant, machinery and park infrastructure.

Under the Electronic Manufacturing Clusters Scheme of Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Government of India, the state government is establishing it in association with IESA (India Electronics and Semiconductor Association), the premier trade body representing the Indian electronic system design and manufacturing (ESDM) industry.

IESA has engaged IL&FS Clusters for the preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the proposed EMC Park.


The project will generate 10,000-12,000 jobs.

Vishal Kumar Dev, CMD, IDCO (Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation) said, “The sector holds tremendous potential in the state as per the strategic roadmap for the ESDM sector submitted by IESA. The state government is committed towards the development of the sector in the state and both IDCO & OCAC (Odisha Computer Application Centre) are lending admirable support for the project. In addition to this, the state government is providing attractive incentives for the ESDM sector under the recently announced state IT policy-2014.”

M N Vidyashankar (IAS), President, IESA stated, “We are elated with the Government of India’s decision to give the in-principle approval for the Info-valley EMC project which would provide a huge boost to electronics manufacturing and job creation in Odisha. We had earlier submitted a report to the State government on developing the strategic roadmap for ESDM sector in the state and are now supporting the state in seeking approval and funding for the Greenfield EMC project under the EMC Scheme of DeitY, Government of India.”

The proposed Greenfield cluster will encompass common facilities for production support services like tool room, test and measurement labs, incubation centre, training centre, and also would have provisions for common infrastructure support like power, water and ETP for the potential investors.
