Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said that the State government has identified 32 blocks for setting up industries, which will expand job opportunities in rural areas.
“The aim of the State government is to generate local job opportunities for the youth of rural areas through such industries,” an official release quoted Khattar as saying.
He said this while addressing a function organised by Vishwakarma Sabha Haryana on the occasion of Vishwakarma Diwas here.
The government is exploring all prospects for setting up industries in rural areas, he added.
Khattar said that the government has introduced its new industrial policy under which 32 blocks have been identified in rural areas of the State.
“Any person can set up industry in these blocks and for that there would be no need for change of land use (CLU),” he said.
He said that the government has decided that farmers’ land will not be acquired without their permission.
Industrialists interested in setting up units will have to purchase land directly from farmers, he said.
