The IPRS 2.0 report maps 449 industrial parks and special economic zones across India, and rates them on multiple parameters such as External Infrastructure; Internal Infrastructure; Business Support Services; and Environment, Safety and Sustainability. Both MWC Chennai and MWC Jaipur have been acknowledged as top-performing industrial destinations in their respective regions and at an all-India level on the basis of these parameters.
