The entire project is expected to cost nearly $90 billion.

"The Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor is a major infrastructure project that India is developing with Japan. The project will upgrade nine mega industrial zones as well as the country's high-speed freight line, three ports, and six airports. A 4,000 MW power plant and a six-lane intersection-free expressway will also be constructed, which will connect the country's political and financial capitals. The DMIC project is already underway and it will cover six states - Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh."
