Govt to acquire land for Bawal project next month
The process of land acquisition for the proposed multi-modal logistic hub (MMLH) at the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Development Corporation’s (HSIIDC) growth centre at Bawal, around 70km from here, is set to start in July.
The logistic hub will be set up on 3,677 acres.
The Haryana government is likely to make an official declaration of its requirement to acquire the land under Section 6 of the Land Acquisition Act-1894.
The centre is one of the four early bird projects, to be developed under the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC).
The hub will cater to the shipment needs of nearly 2,000 industries, which the HSIIDC’s Bawal growth centre can house in its industrial plots ranging from 450 sq metre to 25 acre.
Apart from the proposed freight corridor, facilities for customs clearance will also be set up. Double-decker trains will be introduced in the
corridor for fast movement of goods.
The government is looking into the objections received from landowners under Section 5-A of the Act during the
prescribed one year, which will end in July.
While the district revenue officer (DRO) will finalise the objections, officials of the state industries and commerce department will visit the site, spread across 16 villages in the two tehsils of Bawal and Rewari next week.
The inspecting team will be led by the financial commissioner and principal secretary of the industries and commerce department and HSIIDC officials based in Gurgaon and Bawal.
“Inspection is being carried out to ensure that the DRO and the industries department are on the same page regarding objections and release of the land,” said a senior state government official on the condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, several national and international companies such as YKK, Lumex, Atlas, Exide, Asahi India are already operating their manufacturing units from here. The companies store, pick and offload their goods.
