Chandigarh The administration announced on Friday the decision to form a panel to examine the problems faced by local industries and discuss future challenges.
UT advisor Dharam Pal, accompanied by representatives of local industry and senior UT officials, visited the industrial areas, taking into account the comments of all stakeholders.
An official said UT’s industry department was working to identify and come up with solutions to the problems plaguing the industrial zone and that a committee should be formed for the same.
“Industrial areas are grappling with poor infrastructure, encroachments and a migration of industrial units to neighboring towns,” the official said, adding that the department would integrate different stakeholders before submitting its suggestions to the administration.
Chandigarh Industries Association president Pankaj Khanna said the renewed attention to the problems facing industries was a welcome step. He added that the long-standing issues require swift political action for immediate redress, before pushing for a complete overhaul of industrial estates.
