CHANDIGARH: Haryana deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala on Tuesday strongly advocated a land pool policy under the ‘Padma’ scheme, so that the rural people owning land get maximum benefit and employment opportunities also get enhanced in villages.
These directions were given by Chautala while presiding over the meeting of officers related to the ‘Padma’ scheme.
On this occasion, principal secretary, HSIIDC, Vijayendra Kumar, managing director, HSIIDC, Vikas Gupta, director general, MSME, Amneet P Kumar, OSD to deputy chief minister, Kamlesh Bhadu and other senior officers were present.
The deputy CM informed after the meeting that while taking forward the ‘Padma’ scheme of the Centre, the Haryana government is going to work on it expeditiously. He said that about 50 acres of land would be picked in each block under land pooling to promote MSMEs in the state.
Some products have been fixed block-wise by the state government, for which the government will extend help for exporting. He said that in many villages of the state, such quality products, which can fetch a good price at the national and international level, are prepared by skilled people, but due to lack of knowledge, they are forced to sell their products at the local level at low prices.
