Our Makarpura G.I.D.C. was considered to be the largest of all G.I.D.C. when
Gujarat Government made G.I.D.C. by issuing 332 Hectors of land. At that time
roads in G.I.D.C. were much un-even in quality; was not having city bus
connection and no Government officers of G.I.D.C. and G.S.F.C. were able to
come to our G.I.D.C. area for giving loan and other facilities. There were many
pits of approximately 8 feet depth and places were suitable for bricks
During that period Mr. Rambhai Kesaria Saheb and other industrialist
established “Microfine Bearing” in shed No. 38 and established our “Makarpura
Association”. They all had repaired roads and with the help of Corporation
initiated bus services to get in G.I.D.C.
Our Makarpura G.I.D.C. at Vadodara with the help of experienced, visionary
industrialists with good intention has come in to existence. We have some 4000
large and small industries and have 1500 associate members. Since initial
stages, our G.I.D.C. is renouned and paying different taxes such as Commercial
Tax, Excise Tax and Custom Duties, foreign business, G.I.D.C. District Centre,
Income Tax and due to this our G.I.D.C. is having reputed status in Vadodara.
Our Association is solving difficulties and problems of industries with support
of Corporation, District Centre, State G.I.D.C. office “Service to industries is
ultimate moto of Asssociation.”
Makarpura G.I.D.C. Estate has 332 Hectors of land having largest area in
Gujarat and hence some 4000 sheds. Our estate is incorporating engineering
industries, machinery & tools industries, fabrication, foundries are producing

Our Industrial Association is working since last 51 years. In 1969 our
Association was establieshed as “Makarpura Association” and considering
different internal facilities of industries and for speedy and required services the
name of Association was changed to Makarpura G.I.D.C. as “G.I.D.C. Industrial
Association” as many different Industries joined to Association.
Because of poor infrastructure of roads and many pits, lumps in the area we
had (forwarded) put C.I.P. project in 2006 for roads and gutters and for this
project we had been asked that this project is only possible if you improve
infrastructure of G.I.D.C. So for this, our Association was named as “Makarpura
G.I.D.C. Industrial Estate Infrastructre & Charitable Association”. C.I.P. project
was approved and hence roads and gutter lines were made possible.
Our Association is only representative of Federation of Industries Association
(F.I.A.), having 208 G.I.D.C. of Makarpura in Gujarat.
