“As of now, 3,000 acres of land has been earmarked,” he said.

“For the purpose of investment, a substantial land bank in both Jammu and Kashmir divisions has been created by the government. It will meet the land requirement of new industrial enterprises. It is for both, the industrialists of J&K and those from other parts,” he added.

The official, however, didn’t elaborate whether the land will be leased out to industrialists from outside or they will be given absolute proprietorship.

“Every aspect will be looked into in the land allotment policy,” he added.
