We need to expedite SEZ land sale: Vishwajit

06 Mar 2020 07:26 PM

The Industries Minister Vishwajit Rane said that the sale of SEZ land – almost 5 lakhs of it – needed to be expedited. However, the sale requires a consultant to be appointed, which has still not been done. The state has to make first payment to SEZ promoters in a couple of months as the moratorium ends.

The government had decided to sell off the land that was acquired for SEZs through a property consultant. The amounts from the sale are to be used to pay off SEZ promoters from  whom the land was repossessed after opposition from locals. The promoters had approached the courts and the government had agreed to return the money invested by them including interest.
