HUBLI: The proposed industrial adalat in Hubli next month has rekindled and renewed the hopes of many industrialists who are finding it difficult to run their units due to various problems.
For the first time, the state government has planned to hold such industrial adalat at Belgum divisional level in Hubli on February 10 to give much needed fillip to the
in the region.Belgaum division consists of eight districts including, Dharwad, Haveri, Gadag, Bagalkot, Bijaur, Karwar and Belgaum. Industrialists who are running the units ranging from small, medium to big industries are entitled to participate in the adalat to get their problems solved.
According to sources, most of the industrial sectors in these districts lack basic facilities such as adequate water, power, good roads and other basic amenities. Negligent attitude of the governments which ruled the state so for has contributed in the closure of many industries in the region. To know the root cause of the problems faced by industrialists, the adalat is being organised.Major problems the industrialists are facing in the region are inordinate delay in getting clearance certificate from the pollution control board and technical problems in getting financial assistance from the banks to expand and modernise their industrial units.
Most of the industrialists are yet to get sale deeds from the government after starting the industrial units on the land purchased from the government.So, the government is expected to give more focus on solving these problems in the adalat. All the officers concerned from KIADB, pollution control board, Registration office, revenue department and other officers involved in the industrial growth will participate in the adalat.“We have pinned a lot of hopes on the proposed adalat that it will at least give patient hearing to our problems and solve them,” said industrialists.
Talking to The New Indian Express, Murugesh Nirani, Small and Large Scale Industries Minister said: “As we want to attract the investors to begin their units in North Karntaka region we are putting in sincere efforts to develop the industrial sectors by organising programmes like industrial adalats.” All the industrialists are requested to send their grievances to the industrial centres and offices concerned which will be handled during the adalat. All the grievances will be solved on the spot and steps will be taken to give clearing certificate from pollution control board and sales deeds on the spot, he said.He appealed to the industrialists to make the best use of the adalat.
