Land proposals of 44 small industries cleared by WB Govt
To spruce up the investments, West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee cleared land proposals of 44 small industries at the meeting of the sub-committee related to industries, infrastructure and employment. This gives a clear indication that land clearances are not an obstacle to investments. These industries will be given land on lease for 99 years and since these are labour intensive industries, they will help in the creation of jobs.
The state will allot land for the setting up of industry for making jewellery boxes in Kolkata’s Shashi Bhushan De Street. Besides that, investors may set up their workshops at the Industrial Parks in Parnasree in Behala, Bauriya and Chengail in Howrah, Garulia, Noapara and Shyamnagar in North 24 Parganas, Sector 3 in Bidhan nagar, Agrasen road and Sevak road in Siliguri, Bolpur and Durgapur. The small industries will also be given various incentives and subsidies by the State Government.
The State Government is taking every step to be industry friendly; it has decided that it will form a consortium of several companies for the setting up of smart cities. Several national and international companies are interested in setting up of supporting infrastructure in the smart cities. Keeping that in mind, the State will invite investments in that sector from companies during the London visit while giving special importance to the six planned theme cities.
