Change of land use norms relaxed
Chandigarh, Mar 24 (UNI) Haryana government today decided to relax norms for change of land use of four industrial areas at Yamunanagar, Bahadurgarh, Sonepat and Panipat.
A decision to this effect was taken in a meeting of the State Cabinet which met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda here today.
The Cabinet decided to regularise the bifurcation or fragmentation of the plots in the old industrial areas of Panipat, Sonepat, Yamunanagar and Bahadurgarh in favour of the allottee or transferee subject to payment of transfer fee as per Estate Management Procedure. Where the service activities or commercial activities are going on the plot or on the divided portion of the plot, the conversion fee would be determined and charged by the Government.
This would be in addition to the transfer fee, if the plot or divided plot is also transferred in favour of transferee.
The decision of the Cabinet has met a longstanding demand of industrial associations of these towns who have been demanding the government to free these industrial areas by allowing bifurcation or fragmentation and regularisation in favour of the transferees for activities other than industrial activities.
These four industrial areas were developed by the Industries Department long ago in 1950s, but over the years, activities in these towns had undergone many changes.
