Abhishek Banerjee asks a Supplementary Question on National Investment and Manufacturing Zones

Abhishek Banerjee asks a Supplementary Question on National Investment and Manufacturing Zones

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Since the Hon. Minister has already replied to a previous question that the Government proposes to set up various National Investment and Manufacturing Zones (NIMZ) in various parts of the country, I would now like to ask the Hon. Minister whether they have any plan to set up any of such zones in any part of West Bengal.

West Bengal now, as we know, is on its path to glory and it is apparently and eventually maintaining the No. 1 position when it concerns the manufacturing unit and industry. We have enough skilled labour, which is quite efficient and easily available. We also have enough land bank available with the State Government and the State Government is always open to any kind of ideas and cooperation when the project concerns the benefit of the people in the area.

So, I would like to ask the hon. Minister whether they have any plan to set up any such zones in West Bengal?
