LAND / SHEDS IN GROWTH CENTRES / INDUSTRIAL AREAS, ETC.
Land / Sheds in growth centres, Industrial areas, etc. would be allotted to entrepreneurs for setting their industrial units on lease of 30 years on annual rent with the facility of renewal. The rent payable for land so allotted would be subjected to revision after every 10 years. The land/sheds allotted for the purpose of setting up of Industrial unit shall not be allowed to be used for any other purpose other than the purpose for which the land has been leased. It would also be ensured that land is allotted as per the actual requirement. However, the terms and conditions of the lease deed shall be determined by the Industry department.
The State Government shall constitute a "Land Bank" at District level to make available the required land to intending entrepreneurs to overcome the delay in land acquisition process.
Waste land / Degraded forest land may be made available by the State Government on long term lease basis after taking prior approval from the Government of India under section '2' of Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980 wherever required, for plantation development / tourism purposes which will encourage forest based / tourism industries.
LAND FOR INDUSTRIES OUTSIDE INDUSTRIAL AREAS / GROWTH CENTRES
The State Government will assist the entrepreneurs in providing land and also in acquiring land for locating industrial units outside industrial areas / growth centres. Enabling amendment in Chhotanagpur Tenancy Act 1908 has already been made to facilitate setting up of any unit for industrial purpose or for the purpose of mining (Bihar Act 2 of 1996). Similarly, enabling amendments have already been made in the Bihar Tenancy Act authorizing conversion of agricultural land.
The Government shall encourage such entrepreneurs by providing approach road , in case of those industries where minimum investment in plant and machinery is Rs. one crore. However, the cost involved in providing such communication facility shall be subject to a limit of 20% of such investment or maximum limit of Rs. 25 lakhs whichever is lower.
ALLOTMENT OF GOVERNMENT LAND
Allotment of Government land at times gets delayed mainly on account of the fact that the competent authority is required to make references to a number of departments before taking a view in the matter.
To expedite the process, number of inter departmental references would be minimized along with decentralization of powers to the level of Collectors.
Collectors would maintain detailed information regarding all available Government land in the district in the form of 'Land Bank'. While the Collectors would be authorized to allot up to 5 acres of Government land for industrial purpose, Government land in excess of 5 acres would be leased to entrepreneurs with the approval of the High Level Empowered Committee headed by the Member, Board of Revenue. The land would be allotted at predetermined rates.
PRIVATE INDUSTRIAL ESTATES
Government would encourage establishment of Private Industrial Estates by acquiring and making available such land at the acquisition cost.
The Government in turn will also provide infrastructure facilities such as water, electricity and road at the doorstep of such private industrial estate. The extent of such private industrial estate shall not be less than 100 acres. Such private industrial estate shall be allowed to install a Captive Power Plant to generate and distribute power directly within such industrial estate.
Social infrastructure in close proximity of industrial areas / estates would be developed. The Government would encourage private participation in putting up well planned and systematic residential facilities, quality residential / non-residential schools, hospitals etc. Large industries would be persuaded to establish such facilities individually or to pool their resources to set up these facilities collectively. The State Government shall endeavor to provide land and other facilities at concessional rates for this purpose.
The State Government has formulated an ambitious plan to set up and promote 3-Tier Growth Centres, namely at Mega, Mini and Micro levels.
Mega Growth Centres at Barhi , Hazaribagh have been taken up for providing modern infrastructure facilities for rapid industrialisation. These growth centres envisages an investment of Rs. 30 to 40 crores and shall provide quality infrastructure inputs like land, water, power, communication, etc.
Industry specific Mini Growth Centres are being contemplated to be set up by the Government at different locations in the State where specific industrial activity needs to be boosted. The location of these growth centres has been selected keeping in mind the inherent locational advantages with respect to availability of raw material, manpower, connectivity and market.
The Government shall provide following facilities at such growth centres:
Highest slab of capital investment and interest subsidy
Highest slab of other relevant subsidies
Quality infrastructure support, which includes, good road connection to the nearest highway.
Priority in power allocation to such growth centres.
These Growth centres would shift the focus of growth of industries into rural areas, yet ensuring that these growth centres are located near main highway and the district head quarters. This would help in generating employment for the local population, and the nearest town would provide residential / schooling facilities for the families.
The following Mini Growth centres are proposed to be set up at the following locations:
- Tasar / Silk Park at Chaibasa and Godda
- Agro based Food Processing Park at Ranchi and Dumka
- Plastic Park at Koderma
- Electronic Park at Namkum / Tatisilwai
- Chemical Park
- Export Promotion Industrial Park (EPIP) at Dhanbad.
- Software Technology Park (STP) at Ranchi / Jamshedpur.
- Biotech and Herbs Park.
To give boost to village based industries, the Government intends to set Micro Industrial Areas / Parks at each block level which shall provide basic infrastructure facilities to the rural entrepreneurs, artisans and craftsman. This shall give a fillip to employment and rural growth.
