The responsibility to ferry state guests from the airport to the venue has been assigned to nine departments. District Magistrate Kaushal Raj has issued strict warnings against errant officials. A total of 200 VIPs are expected to turn up for the event along with 11 VVIPs.

Among the industrialists accorded state guest status are Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd chairman Anand C Mahindra, ITC CEO Sanjeev Puri, Medanta Group chairman Naresh Trehan, HCL Group founder-chairman Shiv Nadar, PepsiCo India President & CEO Ahmed ElSheikh, Tata Sons chairman Chandrashekharan, Samsung India president & CEO HC Hong, Adani Group chairman and managing director Gautam Adani and Torrent Group chairman Sudhir Mehta.

Last year, during the first groundbreaking ceremony, foundation stones for 158 projects worth Rs 1 lakh crore were laid in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
