Chandigarh, December 11 – A new Industrial Policy will soon be announced in Haryana as the final draft of the policy is ready and new industrial estates would be set up at all the district headquarters under this new policy.
This was stated by Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda while interacting with media persons at Ellenabad today.
Mr Hooda said that the State Government would provide special facilities to the entrepreneurs who would set up their ventures at industrially backward areas of the state. He said that Haryana Government was providing far more better facilities to the businessmen and entrepreneurs who were investing in the state as compared to the facilities provided to them in the neighbouring states. These facilities had resulted in Haryana ranking first in per capita investment in the country. Under the Industrial Policy implemented during the previous tenure of the present government, investment projects worth Rs 53,000 crore had been implemented in the state. At present various projects worth over Rs one lakh crore were in the pipeline, he added.
Replying to a question, Mr Hooda said that market fee on the sale of cotton was less in the state than other states. The State Government had reduced half a per cent market fee as well as HRDF fee recently. No other type of infrastructure fee was levied on the sale of cotton and other crops whereas neighboring states were charging such fees. He ensured that all facilities would be provided to the industrialists to set up their ventures in the industrially backward areas of the state.
Answering a question on education sector, he said that Haryana would be a hub of education not only at national level but at the international level in next five years. Several schemes had been implemented to promote qualitative education which included a Central University in Mahendragarh district and Rajiv Gandhi Education City at Kundli, Sonipat. Reservation of 25 per cent seats had been made for the students of the state.
Reiterating his stand for a separate High Court for Haryana, he said that it was a right demand of the people of the state and he had raised the same demand at national level also. The Union Law Minister had given a favourable response to this demand. Continuous efforts would be made to realize the demand of separate High Court for the state, he added.
Mr Hooda said that the State Government had spent nine times more on providing judicial facilities as compared to the money spent in the tenures of previous Governments. District Court Complexes had been set up in 19 districts out of 21. The two left out districts of Mewat and Palwal would also have Court premises soon. The process to set up judicial complexes at Tohana and Bahadurgarh sub divisions had been started. Speaking on the issue of Separate Gurdwara Parbhandak Committee, he said that Chatha Committee Report on this issue had been received and the report was under review. Final decision would be taken after going through all the aspects of this report.
He said that there was no dearth of funds for the developmental work. The repair work of all the roads would be completed shortly. He said that on December 25 he would address a rally at Sirsa and would list out all the developmental works carried out by the Government. The outlines for the development of Sirsa would also be drawn, he added.
He urged the people to attend the rally on December 25 in large number and cooperate with the State Government for making Haryana a frontrunner state in the country.
