The Odisha government today asked IPICOL and State Level Technical Committee to make realistic assessment of the land and water to be allotted for the new industries.
The issue was raised in a meeting of the State Level Single Window Authority (SLSWA) presided over by Chief Secretary A P Padhi as it was often alleged that companies demand more land and water than the actual requirement. The Authority also reviewed the reports sent by the District Level Single Window Committees in the meeting. Padhi directed that the district level committees should sit regularly and follow up the sanctioned projects, an official of IPICOL said.
Further, IPICOL (Industrial Promotion & Investment Corporation of Odisha Limited) was advised to simplify the format through which the district committees would submit the reports, an official release said. Meanwhile, SLSWA along with the members of the State Project Monitoring Group (SPMG) also reviewed the progress of earlier approved investment proposals.
The major projects reviewed today included Gandhamardhan-B mining project of OMC, Lean slurry project of NALCO, Aditya Almunium Project, steel plant project by Bhusan Steel, project Emami Cement Ltd and NTPC Talcher Super Thermal Power Station in Kaniha.
Issues pertaining to compensatory afforestation, land acquisition, forest diversion, construction of approach road, setting up sub-stations, power supply to new units, use of water and other facilities also came up in the meeting.
