Mukesh Ambani, renowned as Asia’s wealthiest individual, is currently in the process of developing an advanced urban center in the vicinity of Delhi-NCR. Named MET City, this project is swiftly gaining prominence as the fresh economic core of Haryana. Positioned as the most rapidly expanding and comprehensive smart city in northern India, MET City attracted an investment of Rs 1,200 crore during the fiscal year 2022-23 from 76 new enterprises. Beyond its economic appeal, there is a notable surge in acquisition activities within the residential sectors. The count of new homeowners has reached 1,200, leading to a total sale of 2,000 residential plots.

The smart city initiative, overseen by Ambani’s subsidiary under RIL, has effectively attracted 450 corporations representing diverse brands across seven different countries. Spanning a vast area of 8,000 acres, this endeavor is spearheaded by Model Economic Township Limited, a fully-owned affiliate of Reliance Industries.

Emerging from the ground up within the Jhajjar region, the city is poised to emerge as a significant economic nucleus of Haryana, standing alongside its neighboring city, Gurugram. The city has garnered favor from four prominent Japanese conglomerates—Nihon Kohden, Panasonic, Denso, and T-Suzuki—all of which have established substantial facilities within its confines. Remarkably, the city holds the distinction of being designated as a Japan Industrial Township. Its layout is based on a “walk-to-work masterplan,” providing easily accessible infrastructure for enterprises establishing their presence there, as articulated by MET City’s CEO, SV Goyal.

MET City’s attractive features for potential homeowners encompass its excellent connectivity and close proximity to Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, and other NCR cities. Strategically positioned along the Kundli Manesar Palwal (KMP) Expressway, the city benefits from its location adjacent to the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. To date, the company’s investments have totaled Rs 8,000 crore, with an additional infusion of Rs 1,000 crore earmarked for the upcoming phase.

Mukesh Ambani’s innovative urban project will also be interconnected with the Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) through rail connectivity. Catering to families, the city provides educational amenities including SGT University and The Sehwag School, overseen by former cricketer Virender Sehwag. Additionally, healthcare needs are addressed with the presence of an AIIMS institute near Reliance MET City.
