Brief About MIHAN Project


The Multi Modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN) is a flagship project of Maharashtra Airport Development Company Limited (MADC). Spearheaded by the Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri. Eknath Shinde, who is also the chairman of MADC and Smt. Swati Pandey, IPoS, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, MADC, MIHAN is based in Nagpur (Maharashtra), a place that is easily accessible by all modes of transport road, rail and air. Nagpur is one of the largest cities in central India and the third largest city in Maharashtra after Mumbai and Pune. Its location as the geographical center of the country is established by the Zero Mile. This endows the city with huge logistics potential.


Due to the development of MIHAN, the whole region around Nagpur is expected to witness a boost in economic activity and will also attract qualified and skilled talent from Maharashtra, rest of India as well as abroad.

MIHAN is the country’s first Multi-product Special Economic Zone (SEZ) which is adjacent to an existing international airport. In addition, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) is developing a dry port at less than 40 Km distance from MIHAN.

The airport at Nagpur is to be expanded, upgraded and modernized by the strategic partner. The existing runway is to be extended by 400 M to 3,600 X 45M along with a parallel second runway of 4,000 X 60 M. The two runways will be separated by 1,600 m to facilitate parallel take-offs and landings. There will be parking space for 50 aircrafts in front of the terminal building and nearly 50 aircrafts in the remote area.

The 3,00,000 Sq.M. terminal will be constructed in phases to meet the estimated 14 million passenger traffic and an estimated 8,70,000 tons of cargo. There is also a provision of space for setting up an aircraft engineering and maintenance base (MRO). MIHAN is also open to the cluster development.

The project is spread over an area of 4,354 hectares that houses an international airport on 1,350 hectares in addition to a 1,238 hectares SEZ that include maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) unit for aircrafts, Information Technology Parks, Hospitals, besides manufacturing and value-added units. Another 614 hectare of land has been reserved for a rail terminal, road terminal, residential and commercial projects and international schools and colleges.

MADC also provides ready-to-work, fully furnished space in the Central Facility Building (CFB) in MIHAN SEZ, where operations can be started immediately. The space is extremely useful for service and exporting companies because of the location and infrastructure provided in MIHAN. Various IT companies, MADC and Development commissioner’s office, Cafeteria, Conference Room, Auditorium, Banks, ATM, Travel & Courier Services etc. are located in CFB.'
