        Virbhadra seeks special help for developmental projects


        Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh Tuesday called on union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram here and requested special assistance for developmental projects.

        The delegation led by him, which also comprised two ministers, demanded declaration of a railway line project to link Chandigarh with the state's prominent industrial hub Baddi as of national importance.

        The chief minister sought Rs.500 crore for strengthening infrastructural network in the state, an official statement said.

        He said the Chandigarh-Baddi new railway line should be declared a project of national importance keeping in view its geographical importance.

        Virbhadra Singh said survey of this new line has been completed and it would facilitate the movement of goods and services from the industrial areas of the state.

        For laying this line, the chief minister said the state is willing to provide all necessary support and infrastructure.

        Revenue Minister Kaul Singh and Industries Minister Mukesh Agnihotri accompanied the chief minister at the meeting.

        The chief minister requested Chidambaram to start construction work on Bhanupalli-Bilaspur railway line as per the decision taken by the Prime Minister's Office Aug 8, 2007, in which it was agreed to fund the project in the pattern of 75:25 between the Indian Railways and the state.

        He said that so far only 44 km of rail line has been constructed in the state since Independence and requested Chidambaram to provide adequate funds to the railway projects.

        Regarding the early release of calamity relief, the chief minister said a central team has already toured the state to assess the flood losses and has submitted its report.

        Virbhadra Singh and his entire cabinet met the prime minister here Monday and briefed him about the massive losses on account of heavy rains.

        At the meeting, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh assured the ministers that the centre would release adequate funds to the state from the National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF) for relief and restoration in flood-affected areas.

        The prime minister said all demands of the state government, like extension of industrial package, Special Plan Assistance and strengthening of the rail network will be positively considered in a time-bound manner.

          ALERT : Commerce Minister Anand Sharma announced partial restoration of the industrial package for the HP.

          Union Commerce Minister Anand Sharma today announced that the extension of capital investment subsidy on plant and machinery for Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand would be extended for four years to accelerate the industrial growth.
          “The capital investment subsidy has been extended till March 31, 2017 in Himachal and Uttarakhand”, Mr. Sharma told the reporters.
          The capital investment subsidy was one major component of a special industrial package offered to the states by the union government. While the package itself was withdrawn by the central government in March 2010 in both the states, this component remained in force after that, but expired on Jan 7 this year, official sources explained.
          Likewise, Mr. Sharma announced a freight subsidy incentive for industry in both the hills states on the pattern of north-eastern states. The same subsidy was earlier known as the Central Transport Subsidy Scheme.
          Certain rules of the freight subsidy incentive have been relaxed to make it more liberal and it would be applicable till 2017, he said.
          Mr. Sharma was in the state capital on Sunday to hold consultations with state government functionaries on industrial development projects, especially those related to the ministries of commerce and industries.
          He said principal approval for six industrial infrastructural projects worth Rs.94 crores, including a warehouse project, a testing lab and container parking facility, all in the Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh industrial belt, has been granted.
          He said the central government has also approved an juice extraction unit in Shimla district and modernization of state-run Himachal Pradesh Horticultural Produce Marketing and Processing Corporation (HPMC) juice extraction plant in Parwanoo district Solan.
          Mr. Sharma also assured financial support for setting up three integrated industrial township at Pandoga in Una, Kandrouri in Kangra and Dhabota in Solan districts.
          For promoting tea produced in the Kangra valley that is known for its flavor and quality, he said Rs.48 lakhs would be spent on a project for revival of tea.
          He said a spice park would be set up at Nadaun in Hamirpur district on which Rs.17 crores would be spent. He also announced an extension centre of ginger-growing Sirmaur district.
          On demand of Himachal to extend the Industrial Promotion Package, which provided excise and other duty concessions for new projects, Mr. Sharma said: “My ministry has already recommended its extension to the finance ministry. I have also taken up matter with the Prime Minister.”
          A special package for industrial development in Himachal and Uttrakhand was extended by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government in 2003. But the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government curtailed it in 2007, before restoring it till 2010.
          Himachal Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Delhi in February this year and sought resumption of the special industrial package to boost industrial growth.
          Officials of the industries department said that the state had approved industrial proposals worth Rs. 48,000 crores in the past 10 years, but got investments worth only Rs. 13,000 crores.
          Himachal Pradesh got maximum investment from 2003 to 2010, when there was a special industrial package from the central government in force.
          Most investments were in , food processing, textile, packaging and light engineering sectors.

            Some reasons to invest in BADDI :-

            1) Commerce Minister Anand Sharma announced partial restoration of the industrial package for the HP (BADDI will get maximum investments approx 75%).
            2) Chandigarh-Baddi new railway line may be declared a project of national importance, survey of this new line has been completed.
            3) 6 industrial infrastructural projects worth Rs.94 crores, including a warehouse project, a testing lab and container parking facility, all in the Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh industrial belt, has been granted.
            4) Higher rental income.
            5) No impact of recession.

                Baddi Barotiwala to get rail link from Surajpur (Near kalka) ( Baddi - Surajpur - Chandigarh )

                Good news for those living in the industrial townships of Baddi-Barotiwala, as the railway board has finally accorded its nod to provide a rail link from Surajpur, three kilometre ahead of border town Kalka.


                The state government would now work out modalities with the Haryana government to acquire land for the 15-kilometre rail line connecting Surajpur to Baddi-Barotiwala.

                The state government has agreed to the bear the cost of the land acquisition in Haryana.

                "The state will bear the cost of land acquisition and further modalities will soon be worked out with the Haryana government," chief secretary Sudripta Roy told HT.

                Earlier, there was a proposal to link Baddi-Barotiwala from Chandigarh.

                Roy headed Himachal's official delegation, where they held a two-hour long meeting with railway board chairman Arunendra Kumar.

                Principal secretary to the chief minister VC Pharkha and resident commissioner PC Dhiman also accompanied Roy in the meeting.

                The meeting with the railway board chairman was consequent to chief minister Virbhadra Singh's meeting with railway minister Malikarjuna Khargey in New Delhi last Thursday.

                The chief secretary also took up the issue of delay of construction of Nangal Talwara rail link.

                "The railway board chairman said that speedy work on the Nangal Talwara rail link will provide an alternate rail route connecting Delhi-Pathankot via Mukerian. However, it expressed its displeasure over the high cost of compensation being demanded by locals for giving their land for the same. The cost of Nangal-Talwara rail line was estimated at Rs. 700 crore, but the cost has escalated manifold.

                The state government expressed its concern over the slow pace of work, as only 44-kilometre broad gauge line has been trenched so far in the past 33 years.

                The state government also discussed in detail the possibility of realigning the rail line, as the delay by Punjab in acquiring a portion of the land for the track was further delaying the execution of work.

                During the meeting, the railway board assured the delegation that the construction work on the Bhanupalli-Bilaspur-Beri line would be expedited. The project is hanging in the air for the past 25 years. Himachal government officials were able to clear major financial hurdles which hampered the construction of the Bhanupalli-Bilaspur rail line.

                Earlier, the HP government had to share 25% of the total construction cost, while 50% was to be borne by the Centre. Now, the state government would have to bear 25% of the cost and the rest 75% would be provided by the railways.

                  Roads in industrial hub cry for attention

                  TNS

                  Solan, September 17
                  With the fund constrains preventing proper maintenance of roads in the industrial hub of Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh (BBN), people are being forced to pass through potholed roads, which is not only adding to their woes but also reflecting the priorities of the state. The plight of internal roads in the industrial corridor is the worst though the National Highway-21 has been repaired again and again.

                  "The poor maintenance of the road leading to Housing Board Colony in Baddi has created a situation where it is impossible to figure out whether a road exist or not in the area," regretted Rajinder Kumar, a resident of the area.

                  Investors rued that though the successive state governments had allowed the industry to grow in every nook and corner of the industrial hub, the approaching road to places like Lodhi Majra, Kishenpura and the Export Promotion Industrial Park needed repair.

                  The plight of the Nalagarh-Ropar-Ghanoli road and the Nalagarh-Swarghat road was among the worst and in the past investors had even initiated a hunger strike to press for their immediate repair . This extreme measure, however, led to a limited relief as the Public Works Department carried out cursory repairs but later left the road to face more damages.
