Former Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria has been named the head of the Uttar Pradesh Defense Industrial Corridor (UPDIC).
In a statement released Thursday, the state government said that Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria’s new job will help the UP Defense Industrial Corridor grow.
The project will be run by the Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA), which is the main organisation in charge of it.
Aligarh, Agra, Jhansi, Chitrakoot, Kanpur, and Lucknow are the six places that connect to the corridor.
On February 21, 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the 20,000 crore Defence Industrial Corridor project would be built in the Bundelkhand region. This is one of the poorest parts of the state.
