Govt working to mapping land bank available for industry

New Delhi, Jul 14 (PTI):
The government is working on creating a “genuine” single window clearance mechanism and mapping the entire land bank available for the industry and industrial development, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said on Tuesday.
The minister also said that the government is looking at ways to promote manufacturing of electronic products like LED televisions, CCTVs and is “very keen” to have a semiconductor FAB plant in India.
Besides, to capture IT services exports data, the ministry is thinking of creating a framework by which it can capture that data.
Goyal said that he has tasked the officers to look at some framework by which the ministry can capture data of IT services exports.
“We are working in DPIIT (Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade) to create the framework of a genuine single window where you do not open doors behind that single window. We are also working on mapping the entire land bank available for industry and industrial development,” he said while addressing industry representatives of electronics and software exports.
The minister said that sufficient land is available and “we can make sure that it is available at competitive prices, we can even talk to states”.
He added that states can be consulted on issues like affordable power and water supply if the electronics industry wants to set up an entire ecosystem in a state.
“Talk to DPIIT, pick up an area of your choice, where the entire ecosystem can be created and supported and we are willing to go that extra mile whatever it takes to create such a cluster of industry and it should be world-class,” he said.
Regarding the demand of export incentives under MEIS (merchandise exports from India scheme), he said the ministry is working on Remission of Duties or Taxes on Export Product (RoDTEP), “so I do not know whether MEIS can really sustain or continue beyond December 2020 or when RoDTEP come to your industry”.
