The Government of Telangana will roll out its new industrial policy in a week. The decision was taken by the Chief Minister, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, at a meeting on the issue.

‘Acquire land’

At a meeting to fine tune the new industrial policy on Monday, the Chief Minister directed the officials to acquire available land for setting up industries and hand it over to the Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC).

Stating that clearance from the Pollution Control Board was not necessary for all the industries, he asked the officials to identify the industries which do not require such clearances.

The meeting was attended by Chief Secretary Rajiv Sharma, Advisor to State Government on Industries B.V. Papa Rao, Principal Secretary in the CMO S. Narsing Rao, Principal Secretary (Industries) K. Pradeep Chandra, Additional Secretary in CMO Smita Sabharwal.

The Chief Minister told the officials to develop the land handed over to TSIIC as industrial estates by providing all infrastructure facilities.

Further, details such as how near such industrial estates were to railway lines, airport, national highways and State highways should be provided in the TSIIC website along with maps, photographs and videos.

Asking the concerned officials to introduce such fully-developed industrial estates to investors across the globe in the web by giving coordinates in Google maps, Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao suggested development of residential townships for the employees working there.
