GIDC approved creation of fresh industrial plots

GOA: Goa Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) approved the creation of fresh industrial plots from the 3 lakh sqm of land freed up at various industrial estates. The GIDC board met and agreed that only those plots which have road access will be put up for allotment.

The GIDC board also agreed to acquire additional land at Panchawadi to create a proper access road to the Panchawadi industrial estate. The existing road is steep and narrow and not conducive for trailer trucks and heavy machinery, said officials.

GIDC has been able to create new plots after the percentage of open spaces at individual industrial estates was reduced from 15% to 7.5%. A few weeks earlier, GIDC has approached the Town and Country Planning (TCP) department for conversion of the land to industrial plots. “The plot plans were prepared but after some members pointed out some issues, the plans were redrawn and corrected,” said a GIDC board member.
