GURGAON: Despite reports of economic slowdown, the Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is all set to inaugurate or lay the foundation stone of seven major industrial projects in Rohtak on Monday. The projects are estimated to bring Rs 3,580 crore investment to the upcoming industrial township.

With this, Rohtak IMT is being seen as the second most promising industrial township in the state. So far, Haryana has received five industrial project proposals entailing the investment of Rs 3,000 crore, at Rohtak, which is set to become the new industrial hub.

Some of the prominent projects include Maruti Suzuki, Suzuki Motorcycles, Amul Dairy. The industrial township is being developed by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC). Rohtak is likely to be a business hotspot since the government has been trying hard to take investment outside Gurgaon and its adjoining areas.

Officials claimed that the improved connectivity including the making of NH-1 from Delhi four-lane will make it more attractive for overseas and domestic investors. The city also has good education institutions and better healthcare facilities.

On Monday, Hooda will lay the foundation stones of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited, Nippon Carbide, Sabarkantha Cooperative - a unit of Amul Dairy, Lakshmi Precision Screws Ltd and Aisin Automotive Haryana Pvt Ltd. Hooda will also inaugurate the second plant of M/s Asian Paints Limited and a blending and bottling plant.

  • Revenues from Gurgaon, but all new projects for Rohtak


    ROHTAK/GURGAON: Gurgaon continues to be a major contributor in Haryana's revenues from exports. Exports of software, electronics, automobiles and their parts accounted for around 60% share in the state's revenues from exports in 2011-12, according to the industry department. These industries are primarily located in and around Gurgaon.

    A report circulated on Monday said that exports from Haryana stood around Rs 48,530 crore during the last financial year. On the day when chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda inaugurated two industrial units and laid the foundation stones of six industrial projects worth Rs 4,700 crore, the report claimed that an industrial revolution has started in the sate and it would gather steam in the next few years. The department claimed that investment projects worth Rs 95,000 crore are in the pipeline and the state has already fetched Rs 59,000 crore since 2005. This includes FDI of about Rs 13,128 crore. "Gurgaon's contribution to the industrial development in Haryana and its economy cannot be ignored. But at the same time there is a need to take the industrial development to other parts of the state," said an HSIIDC official.

    According to some experts, the state is now focusing on bringing in mega projects to Rohtak, the hometown of Hooda. The opposition parties have been alleging that Hooda is ignoring Gurgaon, often cited as the financial capital of Haryana, for political gains.

    But the industry department has denied the charges. "While industrial hubs such as Rohtak and Kharkhoda would get manufacturing units, Gurgaon will lead the way for the services sector. We want Gurgaon to be a hub of knowledge industries like IT, ITeS, healthcare and tech-intensive manufacturing like automobile," said an official.

    On Monday, Maruti Suzuki MD Shinzo Nakanishi said he was positive that like Gurgaon and Manesar, Rohtak will also make its mark on the global automobile market. To be developed over an area of 600 acres, the Maruti-Suzuki unit will be Suzuki's only R&D facility outside Japan. The company expects to invest more than Rs 2,000 crore for the new facility.

  • Good news and what is commendable that CM isn't focusing on NCR areas of Haryana. I hope all the industries "actually" start their operations and govt does play its part seriously.

  • Sonipat all set to become the hub of education in state


    GURGAON: A day after launching several prominent industry projects in Rohtak, the Haryana chief minister, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, on Tuesday said that he would soon lay the foundation stones of at least a dozen educational institutions at Rajiv Gandhi Education City in Sonipat. Hooda said that education and industrial growth were important for the fast development of the state and the government has been consistently making efforts in this regard. He said that the landholding of farmers was getting smaller and therefore it has become necessary for more industries to be set up, increasing employment opportunities for youth.The education city would come up on 1,500 acres in Sonipat along NH-1, some 40km from the national capital. The chief minister said that the education city will have top-class infrastructure and support services to attract reputed educational institutes to open their campuses in Sonipat.Already, the state government has allocated land to over a dozen institutes and universities to start their campus.

    Sources said that several more institutions have applied for allotment of land here. Some of the institutions which have got land include Thapar University, Manav Rachna International University, International Foundation for Research and Education, Birla Institute of Management Technology and Fore School of Management.

  • New rail link to shorten Rohtak-Hisar route

    Tribune News Service

    Hisar, July 27
    The Rohtak-Meham-Hansi rail line would have a major socio-economic impact in the region as it will save considerable time and money of passengers on the Delhi-Hisar rail section and cover 20 villages of Rohtak, Bhiwani and Hisar districts.

    The 68.8-km rail line will have have eight stations and four underbridges will be built en route. It is likely to be completed in five years, said Northern Railway chief PRO Neeraj Sharma.

    The new rail line would shorten the Rohtak-Hisar route by about 50 kilometres, reducing the distance between the towns to 93.9 kilometres. In the absence of a rail link between Rohtak and Hansi, train services were available via Bhiwani, he said.

    Union Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge would lay the foundation stone at Hansi on Sunday in the presence of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. The Centre and the state government would bear 50 per cent each of the construction cost.

    Rohtak Member of Parliament Deepender Singh Hooda said, “After completion, travel time on the Delhi-Hisar-Sirsa route will be cut short by almost an hour. It will improve connectivity and open new avenues of trade and industrial development in the region.”

  • Will get shady land deals probed by Khemka: Abhay

    INLD leaders Abhay Chautala (extreme right) and Ashok Arora (centre) address a press conference at Rohtak on Saturday. A Tribune photograph

    Rohtak, November 16
    The INLD has castigated the Congress-led governments in the state as well as at the Centre for allegedly coercing Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials to get a flat belonging to former Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala attached.

    Talking to mediapersons here today, INLD leader Abhay Chautala said they would challenge the move in court and were confident of getting stay orders on the “threatened” attachment.

    On being asked about the possibility of an umbrella coalition of the anti-Congress parties and groups in the state, he said Kuldeep Bishnoi’s Haryana Janhit Congress was a B-team of the Congress, though there was hope of the INLD joining hands with the BJP.

    In response to another query, Abhay said the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government in Haryana was mistreating senior administrative officer Ashok Khemka, which was unfortunate. He said if the INLD formed the government in Haryana, they would get the Hooda government’s “shady” land deals probed by Khemka.

  • Residents up in arms against development charges
    CM unmoved, rejects demand to withdraw decision

    Sunit Dhawan
    Tribune News Service

    Rohtak, December 11

    Residents of recently regularised colonies of Rohtak have opposed the levying of “undue and unreasonable” development charges.

    Th\e local municipal councillors are in a tight spot as residents are mounting pressure on them to come to their rescue, while the Chief Minister has outrightly rejected their demand to withdraw the development charges.

    Hundreds of affected residents staged a protest demonstration at the Chhotu Ram Chowk here yesterday to press for the withdrawal of the charges.

    It may be pertinent to mention here that as many as 70 colonies of Rohtak had been regularised in 2004, while 34 more colonies were regularised recently.

    The protesters lamented that many such colonies still lacked even the basic amenities, and hence the developmental charges were not justified. They also burnt copies of the notices issued to them in this regard.

    They maintained that a number of colonies had been regularised in Delhi as well, but the Delhi Government had not levied charges on the residents of those colonies.

    Pointing out that the state government had released a massive amount of money for the districts falling under the national capital region, the leaders of the protesting residents questioned, where had that money gone.

    The residents, who have lodged their protest against the development charges on several occasions, have given a seven- day ultimatum to the authorities concerned, following which they will start a relay fast.
