Once labeled as the dusty town of Gujarat, and also state's tobacco belt and abode to principal wetland, Sanand, will soon be the new auto centre for the state.

Currently, Sanand has a populace of 40,000 and will soon welcome about 20,000 new employees who will be working with the Nano project, either directly or indirectly.

In addition, Sanand will soon encompass latest mammoth-like convention centre, clubbed with a five-star hotel neat to the Nano plant. This is being developed by the Indian Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITME) Society with an investment of Rs 3 billion.

Earlier, ITME was to set up this project in India's financial capital, Mumbai. But dearth of the right property in Mumbai and Sanand's new stepping stone toward fame and development, forced ITME to shift to Gujarat.

The convention centre will consist of warehousing facility, material handling facility, restaurants, space for establishing offices and customs clearances. The centre that is being built on the lines New Delhi's Pragati Maidan, will consist of 4-5 exhibition halls and an open area spanning over 25,000-30,000 square metres, informed Rajni Bachkaniwala, ITME Chairman.

Gujarat has 696 Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) of which 185 are operated by the state, 131 are grant-in-aid and the remaining are self-funded. But the bottom-line is that, 70,000 youngsters who would graduate each year from these ITIs will head to Sanand for their first stop to employment.

The Gujarat government is currently planning to turn Sanand into a satellite city of Ahmedabad, with the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) establishing the adjacent areas of Dehgam, Bareja, Kalol and Mahemdabad as separate independent cities.
