Bari Brahmana Industries Association (BBIA) has sought attention of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh, Finance Minister Haseeb Ahmad Drabu, Minister of Industries and Commerce Chander Prakash Gunga and Minister for Forest Choudhary Lal Singh towards range of urgent issues, threatening the very survival of industries.
Addressing a press conference, the representative of BBIA led by its president Lalit Mahajan said that despite loud talks about the New Industrial Policy -2016, the existing Industries are badly suffering on account of many faulty and deficient Government Services particularly in the Bari Brahamana Industrial Complex. He sought urgent attention of the Chief Minister and Ministers in charge of Power, Industries and Forest .
Regarding Power Development Department (PDD), he highlighted unscheduled tripping of power supply in the industrial complex, non release of new power connection, non availability of 24 hours power supply in the complex and non
commissioning of new power line.
From Industries Department, he said that land should be given on 90 years lease basis with extendable for further period, the project implementation period should be three to four years keeping in mind, exit route to be given to sick/closed PMT units, exemption to industrial sector and preview of negative list and extension of existing fiscal benefit under the proposed GST regime.
He said that BBIA is very thankful to Minister for Forest Chaudhary Lal Singh for the extension in the time of renewal of consent to operate and reduction in the fees for obtaining consent to establish/operate but at present the issue/renewal is suspended by the department for the reason best known to them due to which the industrial units are
suffering very badly.
He appealed Chief Minister and other concerned Ministers to resolve the issue on priority basis for speedy industrial growth in the state.
