West Bengal govt asks industries for investment proposals

india Updated: Jun 12, 2012 17:05 IST

The West Bengal government on Tuesday asked the industry in the state to come up with "definite investment proposals".

"Today we had a meeting with different chambers of commerce. We told them to come up with definite investment proposals," state commerce and industry minister Partha Chatterjee said in Kolkata.

Various departments of the state government, like land, power and environment, held a meeting with the industry, represented by chambers of commerce.

Chatterjee said the state government had identified 7,500 acres of land which was available for industry.

"We are telling the chambers to become more proactive in bringing in investments and not to talk of land only. Land is available for industry," he said.

Chatterjee said those having land in excess of 24 acres should utilise it for setting up of industry only and not for any other purpose.

He added that the government would finalise IT policy in a week's time.
