Nagpur: The Patanjali group plans to scale up its land holding in Mihan-SEZ here by 40 acres, taking it to 330 acres for its ambitious project.

The company is eyeing export of herbal medicine through its Nagpur project, now under development, which aims to provide employment opportunities to nearly 10,000 people.

Acharya Balkrishna, CEO of Patanjali group, who was here on Saturday for a function, said the company is planning to acquire another 40 acres of land in the Mihan SEZ.

Patanjali has land both in the SEZ and non-SEZ parts of Mihan.

“Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has asked Patanjali to further invest in Nagpur, after which the group has planned to take up another 40 acres in SEZ. Around 80 per cent of the output will be exported. Stress will be on exporting herbal medicine as there is not much market for herbal cosmetics,” Balkrishna said.

The units in SEZ and non-SEZ areas will cater to the company’s overseas and domestic market, respectively.
