The new policies would be prepared in the next two weeks and presented to the state cabinet for approval. The necessary government orders (GOs) issued thereafter could be showcased at the summit.
In the recently concluded UP civic polls, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had bagged 14 of the 16 mayoral posts in the state. The poll results were announced on Friday.
Now that the polls are over, Adityanath is turning his attention towards the much-awaited UP Global Investors’ Summit 2018- a crucial event for UP and its industrial landscape. The state government hopes to attract massive investments in the region through the two-day mega event.
In a recent review meeting, the Uttar Pradesh CM had directed officials to finalise all pending policies in right earnest, apart from identifying suitable land for setting up industrial units ahead of the investors’ summit.
The state is currently in the process of identifying around 500 acres of land each in the 75 districts of Uttar Pradesh, taking the total area being earmarked in the state to 37,500 acres. Once the identification process is over, land could be allotted private players interested in setting up industrial units in UP.
UP Chief Secretary Rajive Kumar has already instructed district magistrates to identify suitable land parcels in their respective districts.
UP Industrial Development Minister Satish Mahana had, on an earlier occasion, told Business Standard: “We have been working on meeting the expectations of the industry with regard to infrastructure development, land bank and converting industrial land leasehold to freehold.”
The government would be looking to pitch for deals in defence manufacturing and IT parks at the summit- an event that is likely to see participation from around 5,000 business delegates, industrialists and investors.
President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, PMs of Mauritius and Nepal, along with ambassadors of different countries are also slated to attend the event in February.
The Aditaynath government is eyeing to sign memorandum of understanding (MoUs) worth over Rs 50,000 crore with various Indian as well as foreign companies at the summit.
