West Bengal plans to use 1 lakh acres government land for industry
"We already have 4,000 acres of fully developed infrastructure-enabled industrial land and another 4,000 acres is being developed."state Finance Minister Amit Mitra said at a programme by Indian Chamber of Commerce.

Kolkata: In a bid to dispel impression that West Bengal does not have enough land for industry, the state government on Thursday announced that it has one lakh acres of land with different departments which could be used for industry.

"We already have 4,000 acres of fully developed infrastructure-enabled industrial land and another 4,000 acres is being developed. The various departments of the state are also holding over one lakh acres, which can also be used for industrial development," state Finance Minister Amit Mitra said at a programme by Indian Chamber of Commerce.

"It is happening. Haringata dairy (state owned) has released 300 acres and the same is being developed as industrial park," he said and assured that the state land bank is enough to meet industrial requirements.

There had been apprehension in the industry on availability of large tracks of land in the state for units as the state government has moved out of forced acquisition of land. The government has now initiated acquiring land from closed units and a committee has been formed for it.
