Additionally, the monorail project between Ahmedabad and Dholera Special Investment Region received a green signal from the State.
Gujarat launches housing scheme for migrantsState launched a new housing scheme-MASIHA (Mukhyamantri Audyogik Shramyogi Ane Industrial Housing Awas), which intends to meet the residential needs of the migrant workers in Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC). Additionally, the government issued tenders for its Affordable Rental Housing Complex (ARHC) scheme which will enable lower rentals for economically-weaker sections of the society.

Cement prices go up in GujaratAlleged cartelisation by cement and steel players has led to a steep price hike in the cost of raw materials, including cement in Gujarat.
