Hyderabad: Pressing a few industries in the city to relocate beyond Outer Ring Road (ORR), Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC) is warning the managements that their land allocation would be cancelled, if they fail to relocate within six months.
To this effect, TSIIC officials have been inspecting industrial units in different areas of the city since last few weeks and interacting with managements. Besides briefing the managements about the facilities provided at other industrial parks, TSIIC officials are also enquiring about additional facilities, if any, required by the managements in relocating to areas outside ORR.
Last week, TSIIC Chairman Gyadari Balamallu along with officials and elected public representatives inspected edible oil processing units and iron and steel units in Katedan. There are about 20 edible oil processing units and nearly 25 iron and steel units at Katedan. In the past, TSIIC had issued notices to the oil unit managements’ to relocate to Buchinepally, Zaheerabad and iron and steel units to Rakamcherla in Parigi constituency.
The government had set up an industrial park in an area spread over 150 acres covering parts of Rakamcherla and Puduru villages. The idea was to relocate the iron and steel units to Rakamcherla park as a means to curb good trucks movement in Katedan and facilitate employment to local youth in the neighbouring areas of the park.
While interacting with the managements, TSIIC Chairman Gyadari Balamallu had directed them to set up their units at Rakamcherla and commence their operations. In fact, he warned the managements that their land allocations for setting up units would be cancelled, if they failed to follow the government’s instructions in relocating to new areas, said an official from TSIIC.
Similarly, measures are being expedited to relocate plastic units operating at Shastripuram in Rajendranagar to Thummaluru, Ranga Reddy. Notices have been served by the Telangana State Pollution Control Board and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to the managements to this effect.
The State government has developed an industrial park in an area of 143 acres with a cost of about Rs.123 crore.
Hyderabad: The Telangana State Pollution Control Board (TSPCB) is conducting a survey to identify units operating in different areas in the city and violating pollution norms.
The move comes in the wake of Industries Minister KT Rama Rao directing the industries department and TSPCB officials to conduct field visits and identify units. Accordingly, the TSPCB has set up five to six teams and have been conducting the survey since last few weeks. The idea was to identify units and furnish a detailed report to the government in a week to initiate further action, said a senior official from TSPCB.
On the surveys conducted in the past, the official informed that since covid pandemic a few units had shut their operations. “There is a need to identify sick units and the ones which have been closed. Based on the report, relocation plans could be finalized by the government,” said the official.
