Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan has sought the intervention of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for expeditious allotment of land for LPG bottling plant of Indian Oil Corporation Limited in Khurda district. Expressing concern over the delay in allotment of land for the project, Pradhan in a letter to the Chief Minister said an estimated investment of `150 crore is getting delayed due to non-cooperation of the State Government.
“It is understood that the concept of single window clearance has been implemented by the Government for encouraging investments in the State. However, it is regretted that this mechanism appears to be non-functional in the case of IOCL’s land acquisition for Khurda bottling plant,” the letter said.
Pradhan said an estimated investment of Rs 150 crore is getting delayed for past 19 months, even after full and final payment made by the oil major for 32 acres of land of Shree Jagannath Temple Trust (SJTT). Read more
