State Investment and Industrial Policy on the cards
Industries Minister Vishwajit Rane said that the State Investment and Industrial Policy will be finalised before the next Goa Legislative Assembly session. Rane added that the government will auction the unlocked land under Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in a bid to promote non-polluting and local job-oriented industries in Goa. The minister said the govt has decided to finalise the State Investment and Industrial Policy, which was approved by the then CM Manohar Parrikar-led cabinet but was not notified. "We will not notify that policy. We have decided to seek suggestions and inputs from the industrial stakeholders like Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industries (GCCI), Goa Small Industries Association (GSIA), Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and others," he said.
"The inputs of the stakeholders will be incorporated in the policy and it would then be notified. Before the next Assembly session, the policy will be finalised," Minister assured. Rane was speaking on the SEZ land allotment question raised by MGP MLA Ramakrishna 'Sudin' Dhavalikar.
