Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 16 (UNI) The Kerala Government has not taken a final decision on providing 70 acres of land sought by the ISRO for setting up its space institute in the State, Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan informed today.
Talking to mediapersons after a Cabinet meeting, he said some media reports in this regard were ''baseless and meaningless'' as the Government had not taken a final decision in this regard so far.
The Government had already provided 20 acres of land at Ponmudi and the Revenue Department was in search of land suitable for setting up the institute, he added.
Mr Achuthanandan said that once the Revenue Department located the land, a final decision in this regard would be taken.
To a question, he denied that the Government had offered land at Uzhamarackal.
