GMR Kakinada SIR,
Andhra Pradesh, India

A 4000 hectare project aimed at providing world class infrastructure to the state and the country.


Kakinada Special Investment Region (SIR) spans over 4,000 hectares and is located in East Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh State, India. Kakinada SIR has optimal logistic advantages of proximity to National Highways, Trunk Railway Network, Domestic and International Airports and Major Container Shipping Ports. GMR Group is also developing a dedicated port that will bring in added advantages for heavy manufacturing in both process and discrete industries. Kakinada SIR is strategically located in the hydro-carbon rich Krishna – Godavari Basin and the Government of Andhra Pradesh’s Petroleum Chemical Petrochemical Investments Regions (PCPIR) is providing excellent potential for its development as a future hub for Refinery & Petrochemical based industries.

With the natural advantage of the region in the Oil & Gas industry and with the existing industrial land scape of the region, Kakinada SIR envisages to develop its industrial park on the lines of Jurong Island, Singapore like development of common infrastructure, plug and play concept, etc., with a master plan. Kakinada SIR anticipates that its industrial park would be the ‘Houston of India’ with over 100 companies across the value chain and expected to develop to a scale at which Jurong Cluster functions.
