Setback on industrial front!

An Assam government panel dealing with the state’s industrial development observed adverse impact of the withdrawal of the North East Industrial Investment policy. Preside over by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, the meeting of the committee expressed grave concern over the setback to the investment due to the Centre’s decision to withdraw the policy. The meeting, however, suggested more industrial units outside Guwahati which would be encouraged with more incentives.

Industry minister Basanta Das, additional Chief Secretaries, R.T.Jindal, Subhash Das, K.V. Eapen, Davinder Kumar and other senior officials were present in the meeting.
