Under the 'Make in India' initiative, the Centre had recently announced setting up of a Defence Industrial Production Corridor between Hosur and Chennai, the statement said.
"The proposed defence manufacturing hub is a step towards making this vision a reality," it said.
GMR Group, Business Chairman-Transportation and Urban Infrastructure, BVN Rao said, "The hub can potentially be a game changer for the region."
"We will be providing all the necessary infrastructure facilities to attract global majors to set up their manufacturing facilities here," he said.
"GKSIR Hosur is keen to set an international benchmark. GMR Group is a world renowned infrastructure developer and we already have an excellent track record of creating mega infrastructure projects in India and abroad", he noted.
The proposed hub is an ideal location for various defence public sector undertakings like Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), the release added.
