THE BRITISH India Corporation Limited (BICL) suffered a jolt, when it failed to get any relief from the high-level state administrative committee presided by chief secretary Naveen Chand Bajpai.
According to sources, for a long time the BICL management had been seeking relief from state authorities for converting landed property from lease land to free hold, exemption in sale tax, house tax and water tax. Besides, it had also requested that various products of the BICL mills be allowed in various State departments.
Sources said that State authorities were informed by the BICL management and Union Textile Ministry about the sick state of the mills. Besides, State authorities were also informed about the revival plan and means of financial resources for the same.
Sources said that State authorities inquired about the BICL commitment in favour of the State and union ministry of textile from representative. The sources said the reply made by representative of BICL and MOT could not impress the state representative, therefore, no postive result from the said meeting came out.
From the State’s side, chief secretary Naveen Chandra Bajpai and top district officials from Kanpur were present and from the other side, the team was led by director textile Uma Devi from Union Ministry of Textile and CMD VK Goel and other senior officers of the BICL.
