Jobs creation is one of the toughest tasks for any government to do even as it is the biggest demand by the public. So, when a huge number of jobs gets created for the common man, everyone sits up and takes notice. This is exactly what is happening right now, at least as far as Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari is concerned. Nitin Gadkari, through his endeavours, has created 54000 jobs. In fact, that is the exact number of people who have actually got jobs.

It is called the Nitin Gadkari model and it has been implemented in his parliamentary constituency Nagpur. This initiative by Gadkari has led to over 54,000 people getting jobs in companies. This Gadkari initiative has been named MIHAN - Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur.

The MIHAN project was created for Nagpur and the Vidarbha region when development projects were initated there. This project helped in generating employment for the local people. Importantly, this also fulfilled the promise made by the BJP leader to the people in 2014. Gadkari had vowed to generate 50,000 jobs in this region.

Gadkari started the MIHAN project to make Nagpur and the Vidarbha region the hub of economic activities and work started in 2009. Nagpur is an important city for air and rail traffic due to its special geographical location and this project looked to boost that position further.

Gadkari set up a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Nagpur. After winning the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Gadkari became an MP from Nagpur and eventually a cabinet minister in the Narendra Modi-led government, after which he focused on working on his dream project.

The best part was that it generated much interest, in both private and public sector. Gradually, some big companies showed interest in the MIHAN project. Thereafter, many companies came forward for investment to take advantage of the benefits on offer.

Among these companies, Air India has provided jobs to at least 4,500 people in Nagpur, HCL has employed around 2,500 people and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has given employment to 7,500 people, according to IANS. Similarly, investment opportunities of more than 170 companies have provided employment opportunities.

Gadkari's office said that 54,868 people got jobs in Nagpur in the last six years. These jobs were created following the establishment of industries and development projects in Nagpur.

A total of 36,407 jobs have been generated in SEZ and 16,162 in the non-SEZ area. At the same time, 2,299 people got jobs through the Central Facility Building MIHAN SEZ.
