Chandigarh, Jun 20 (UNI) The world's largest paint manufacturing facility is being set up by Asian Paints, an Indian multi-national company, in Industrial Model Township (IMT) at Rohtak.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda will attend the ground breaking ceremony for the plant on June 22, an official spokesman said today.

This was a prestigious project being developed by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation. This township was being developed with the state-of-the-art infrastructure of international standards at par with the IMT at Manesar, he said.

The township, spanning about 3,000 acres, was on NH-10 linking Delhi with Rohtak. The land for the first phase measuring about 871 acres had already been acquired by the Corporation.

He said the estimated cost of providing all the infrastructural works in the first phase of the proposed township was Rs 170 crore.

The infrastructure would include facilities such as roads, water supply, sewerage, drainage, Common Effluent Treatment Plant and Water Treatment Plant.

He said the IMT at Rohtak would also support a gems and jewellery park and a jewellery design and training centre.

Kundli-Manesar-Palwal KMP Expressway would add to its logistic support.

A commercial and institutional sector had been planned in this township besides the civic amenities, including a recreational club and a star hotel.

A total of 168 plots of various sizes had been carved out in the first phase of this township. In addition to this, about 2,000 acres of land for Phase-II had been identified which was likely to be acquired very shortly.
