Land along UP Expressway as Industrial Plots
Barren land across Uttar Pradesh will soon be utilised for setting up industrial units, following a directive from the state government.
Issuing instructions to the industrial development department, chief minister Adityanath said industrial plots of 10 hectares and above would be developed on barren land available in the state and given to those setting up mega projects in UP.
The chief minister has already directed officials of the industrial development department to earmark parcels of land within a radius of two km on both sides of the proposed expressways projects for the development of industrial townships.
The UP government is currently constructing Purvanchal, Gorakhpur and Bundelkhand expressways, and has already identified 2,500 acres for an industrial township near the Gorakhpur expressway. In its new industrial policy the state has announced additional rebates and concessions for setting up units in backward Bundelkhand and eastern UP.
