JHARKHAND STATE INDUSTRIAL POLICY 2001

27.0 IDENTIFICATION OF THRUST AREAS
27.1

The State of Jharkhand is blessed with huge natural resources such as minerals, forests, water resources, energy resources, fertile land, etc. which can place the State amongst one of the top most prosperous and developed status of the country.

 
27.2

Besides, the State is also gifted with relatively moderate climate, good rainfall, good rail and road communication, technical educational facilities, research laboratories, management institutes, etc.

 
27.3

With a view to inculcate rapid growth in industrial sector, such industries which aim to utilise natural resources available in Jharkhand and which can generate employment for local inhabitants are being classified as thrust area industries.

 
27.4

It is also intended to give boost to those industries, which propose to add value to the minerals, forest produce and agro based products available in the state. Important criteria for determining suitability of thrust industries for accelerated development in the states are:

  1.   availability of raw material
  2.   market
  3.   manpower resources
  4.   linkage with larger units
  5.   sustainability aspects
   
27.5

The following industries have been identified as thrust areas for focussed industrial development in the State:

   
1.

Mining and Mineral Based Industries

   
 

The potential for growth in mining and mineral based industries is immense. This sector has huge potential for attracting large investments to create employment and raise resources. It would be the endeavor of the State Governement to expedite the granting of mining leases and simplify the producers with respect to the grant of mining leases. In addition, the State Government would also provide certain relief to make mining activities easier.

   
 

Concerted efforts shall be made to expedite/ undertake survey/ exploration of mining resources. Modern methods of exploration like remote sensing, arrow magnetic survey and other methods would be used to set up the resource inventory of various minerals in the State. The State Government would encourage participation of reputed private parties, multinationals and Central and State agencies in this exercise.

   
 

The State Government would encourage joint venture projects with State Mineral Development Corporation (SMDC) especially in the field of mining. Private sector would be encouraged to take up mining activities in the State. Mining lease applications alongwith project report and all relevant documents would preferably be disposed off within a period of 60 days of the filing of such application.

   
 

Suitable steps would be taken to adopt state of art technology in mining activities. For this, the Government would promote private sector participation and would offer a package of reasonable concessions on case to case basis. To ensure raw material linkage to mining based and other industries, priority in granting mining leases to such industries and other such facilities shall be extended.
