Even as the tussle between industrial associations of Gurgaon and regulator Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) over the implementation of new Estate Management Policy (EMP) 2011 is on, both sides have agreed to discuss the matter at the two-day meeting to be held on June 3-4.
The associations have given a mixed response to the occurrence of the meeting, which is being organised by the HSIIDC to enlighten industrialists about the advantages of EMP.
“This is good that they are ready to break the ice and open to discussions. We will also see if the new policy is actually positive or not,” said Ameena Sherwani of Manesar Industrial Welfare Association.
However, she is critical of the HSIIDC as an organisation. “Even if the policy is reasonable, HSIIDC is bent upon resuming our properties even for minor violations of the norm,” she added. “We (industrialists in Manesar) will attend the meeting on both days as the policy is too complicated to be understood in a few hours,” she said.
Colonel Raj Singla, president of Chambers of Udyog Vihar Industrialists, claims that he got requests from several associations in Kundli and Karnal that expressed their desire to attend the meeting.
Singla is sceptical that the meeting will be a monologue. He said, “I doubt that there will be any positive outcome from the meetings. It’s a meeting to make us listen to them. It’s not an attempt to give an ear to our grievances.”
HSIIDC asserts that the interaction will be a two-way process.
“We will first give the presentation followed by a comparative analysis of earlier EMP and the new EMP. After that, we would invite queries,” said Divya Kamal, DGM (estates), IMT Manesar, HSIIDC.
