Value of projects is estimated to be around Rs.1.5 lakh crore

The State government is likely to release Vision 2025 and a number of policy documents such as Industrial Policy and Land Pooling Policy before the presentation of the budget.

The budget is expected to be presented to the Assembly next month.

Among other policies proposed are IT and IT-enabled Service Policy and Public-Private Partnership (PPP) policy. Sector-specific policies for biotechnology, automobiles and renewable energy have also been planned.

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa will unveil the Vision 2025 document, which will essentially deal with infrastructure development. It will envisage the implementation of projects to be taken up through the PPP mode, apart from those under the public sector.

The value of the projects is estimated to be around Rs.1.5 lakh crore.

It is aimed at serving as a comprehensive roadmap for Tamil Nadu's development in the implementation of infrastructure development projects in areas such as power and tourism. It will identify and remove bottlenecks in development, prioritise critical infrastructure projects and intensify efforts towards the objective of positioning Tamil Nadu as the country's leading State.

The government has already announced its plans to form the Infrastructure Development Board, which will serve as an institutional framework for conceptualisation, prioritisation, sanction and speedy implementation of critical infrastructure projects.

To provide legal support to the proposed body, the government will introduce a Bill in the budget session.

It has also decided to create the Infrastructure Development fund to give a fillip to the implementation of projects.

In the coming years, the government will pay greater attention to the manufacturing sector in particular and industry in general as the State had slipped in registering a healthy growth in the secondary sector during most of the 11 Plan period (2007-2012).

Against the growth target of 9.2 per cent for the industry, the State will see the rate of around 4.7 per cent, despite being known for its core strength in areas including automobile, textiles, and IT and ITES.

Being an Expatriate of TN, I really Appreciate C.M Jayalalitha for her Vision to develop Tamil Nadu to stage as No-1. The Vision 2025 with a detailed road map of plan and policies inclusive of strict norms will certainly bring back the TN to its past glory. Ms.Jayalalitha should emphasize the transparency in all projects by quantum on money, quality and mandating. The Technology will support her, if she intend to use it in planned way, every move, every step it will pamper her. Ms.Jayalalitha needs to clean the state administration by declaring their ability and accountability so the departments themselves will compete internally to bring positive changes and benefits to the society. It will ultimately clear her opposition who should pack-up and settle in other countries.

The Government will have to do 24hrs power cut to achieve this. Please prioritize power shortage first.

It is good to hear that politicians start thinking like growth strategists, plan for real growth of economy and release vision document for the next decade. If such thing is implemented devoid of corruption, growth can reach 15 ~ 20%.

It is no doubt a great vision announced by the Respected CM of tamil nadu. If Chennai city isprovided with excellent roads of international standarr, a beautiful clean Central sttion, a regulated fare auto system, a city removed of all garbage, with excellent bus service it will look marvellous. Even the colour of the City buses can be changed to Red and yello combined to look attractive. NOw the Bus shelters are not provided with the requireed info. The temple tanks of Mylapore and Tiruvanmiyur shall be removed of all garbage around and road side shops around the tanks so that they provide a good place for getting fresh air in the evening. Only Hon'ble Jayalalitha has come with such a vision.We all await to see a realSingara Chennai soon.
