The new Industrial Policy of Haryana will be announced soon. The focus is on transparency, and on ushering in structural and procedural reforms that will facilitate business and entrepreneurship. This was revealed by Industries and Commerce Minister of Haryana, Capt. Abhimanyu, while addressing the recent ‘Conference on Manufacturing’ organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) at Gurgaon. The theme of the Conference was ‘Explore-Improve-Collaborate’, with stress on manufacturing, to ‘Make in Haryana’ a success. Addressing the entrepreneurs, Capt. Abhimanyu said that Haryana is a land of opportunities. With 1.3 percent of the population of the country, the State’s  contribution is 3.4 percent in the national economy. Capt. Abhimanyu said, “We have implemented the Right to Service Act in Haryana, making the administration accountable, and if there is any delay the concerned will have to face punishment, including penalties. Everything will be online – from applications for NOCs to  approvals for buildings. There will be no human interface, let alone political involvement.” He added that an applicant would be able to track his/her files online, and in case of undue delay, it would be considered as ‘deemed clearance’. He said that the system of filing affidavits is also being done away with and in the new policy self-certification will be enough. If at any point of time some verification is required, it will be done by involving third parties (for which retired engineers, CAs, architects etc. would be empanelled. He said that the State govt. would follow the concept of ‘minimum government, maximum governance’, meaning thereby that the government would only come in and regulate when someone is not complying with rules or Acts. Industrial plots will now be allotted through e-tendering. According to Capt. Abhimanyu, the government has already, in the last 6 months, helped create support infrastructure as per the needs of the market or entrepreneurs. Citing an example, he said that it was felt that an Export House needed to be set in Panipat for the facilitation of exports, and it was done. As a rule, if any non-budgeted service or facility is urgently needed, the government is willing to get it done on a PPP basis. He said that the Manesar-Palwal stretch of KMP Expressway, which has been languishing for years, will be completed in 9 months, and it  would be made 6 lane (instead of earlier 4 lane). He said that KMP Expressway is not just a road, but the catalyst for a lot of economic activity around it. “Of course the most important issue is job creation, for which the focus will be on manufacturing. Within this, the promotion of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) has been identified as the best strategy for employment generation in the hinterlands of Haryana.” Capt. Abhimanyu asked the entrepreneurs to adopt best international practices on Human Resource, Labour and Environment Management in their units. He added that important Demographic Data and Geographic Data (DD&GD) of the State were being collected, which would be of relevance to many.
