Ghaziabad, June 25 (IANS) The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) at its 153rd board meeting on Tuesday considered 37 proposals, including the plan to build warehouses to develop Ghaziabad into an industrial hub.

The proposal, which will be a major boost for industrial development in this well-connected city, is being sent to the government for approval.
