Deputy commissioners in Haryana have been empowered to provide clearances for projects with investment up to Rs. 10 crore or involving change of land use (CLU) up to 1 acre, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Sunday.
For this purpose, a District Level Clearance Committee (DLCC) has been constituted at all district headquarters under the chairmanship of respective deputy commissioners so as to facilitate prospective investments in the state, Khattar said. The CM was speaking at a state-level stakeholders sensitisation workshop on ease of doing business and implementation of enterprises promotion policy at Apparel House.
Khattar set June 15 as the deadline for all departments to fulfil their targets so that the state fares well in the ease of doing business country-wide rankings.
“When the BJP government came into power, Haryana ranked 14th in terms of ease of doing business. Now, with collective efforts of all officers and political leaders, the state government intends to bring Haryana among the top five states,” he said.
Khattar asked officials to prepare a list of 100 investors who are willing to invest in the state.
“If there is a problem, there will be a way out also. If not 100%, work to complete at least 90% targets by June 15,” he said.
“If something is not working out, the officials should see how other states are working on that issue,” he told top officials at the workshop.
Two meetings of DLCC and Empowered Executive Committee will be held every month for grievance redresssal of all industrialists. The meetings for this month will be on May 11 and 31.
Managing director of HSIIDC Sudhir Rajpal said that after taking feedback from industrialists, some changes have been made in the Enterprises Promotion Policy - 2015. The workshop was conducted to apprise field officials so that they are aware of these initiatives and to propagate it at ground level.
