Indian Railways would have new station coming up near MIHAN to connect cargo hub with countries rail network. 

MADC would later play a larger role in Maharashtra for airports not owned by AAI and IAF.

As the project progresses, Nagpur will see a influx of migrants adding to city’s population. 

The existing city bus service would not be able to cope up with this. So a new bus mass transit system would be started with combine efforts from NMC, NIT, MSRTC and MIDC each organization playing part in it.

NMC and NIT are together responsible for civic administration in Greater Nagpur Metropolitan Area and MSRTC along with Indian Railways would be responsible for developing logistic infrastructure.
