Under the new industrial policy 2015, the UT Administration will allow more non-polluting industrial units, like those of IT-enabled services. This was stated by MP Kirron Kher while interacting with mediapersons here today.

Besides the conversion policy, the industrialists have been demanding an increase in the floor area ratio (FAR). The draft of the industrial policy framed in 2009 by the Administration during the tenure of former UT Administrator Shiv Raj Patil was never finalised.

The Ministry of Home Affairs had directed the UT Administration for the implementation of the MSMED Act in the city. The MHA had directed that the Administration should prepare an industrial policy keeping in the legislation in view.

She also adopted Sarangpur village under the ‘Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojna’ and had recommended at least 15 works under the MPLADS. The MP had recently posted on her twitter account that till date, she had distributed Rs 1.77 crore for various works under MPLADS, including Rs 1.41 crore for the development of Sarangpur, which was adopted by her under the ‘Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana’ (SAGY), a flagship programme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
