Pune , Oct. 2

Mr Vilasrao Deshmukh, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, has stated that the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) will not acquire farmlands indiscriminately and will give the farmers the market prices for the land acquired.

Talking to presspersons after the annual general meeting of the Mahratta Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture (MCCIA), he said MIDC, which is a Government agency, will acquire the land that is being given willingly by the farmers. He also said the farmers will be adequately compensated as per the market rates and has assured that only wastelands or barren or single crop lands will be used for the SEZ and not the fertile lands.

Mr Deshmukh said the State had prepared a new industrial policy for business purposes and it would be a single window clearance system with Web-enabled business facilitation portal. It had already begun on a pilot basis and would act as the guidance for business ventures.
