Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday said an industrial estate would be set up in Yamunanagar over an area of 550 acres.

For this purpose, the land has already been identified and a notification in this regard would soon be issued, Hooda said while addressing the industrialists in Yamunanagar.

He said that the State's Industries Minister Randeep Singh Surjewala and Secretary Industries, Y S Malik would soon hold a meeting with the Industries Associations of Yamunanagar to sort out their different issues.

Referring to the issues of the industrialists, the Chief Minister said that some of their problems were related to the whole state and some were area specific which could be sorted out.

Every possible step would be taken by the State Government to ensure industrial development of the area, he said.

"We want to develop a framework to make Yamunanagar number one district in the state," Hooda told the industrialists.

He said that the State Government has now come up with a unique farmer friendly land pooling scheme so as to ensure the participation of land owners in the development process.

This would lead to the expansion of the industry besides benefiting the land owners, he added.

Hooda, who was on a two-day visit to Yamunanagar, further said that this was in addition to Rs 2,400 crore which had been spent on setting up of Deen Bandhu Chotu Ram Thermal Power Plant.

"Although, concrete steps have been taken to ensure all round development of the area, yet much more needs to be done," he said.
