Faridabad, February 21
Industrial units operating in non-conforming zones (residential) have been awaiting regularisation for more than 15 years.
Ramneek Prabhakar, general secretary of the Manufacturers’ Association Faridabad (MAF), said several units were functioning from such zones, where the basic amenities were absent despite the collection of taxes and other charges. “Even regularised industrial sectors such as 24 and 25 lack proper roads and drainage system,’’ he added.
Rajiv Chawla, president of Integrated Association of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises of India, said industrial units and residents were suffering in the absence of the basic amenities.
Sources said as per a survey conducted by the Industries Department last year, there were 23 clusters with 16,800 industrial units in residential zones. Though the Municipal Corporation had adopted a resolution to regularise clusters having 80 per cent or more industrial units in 2008, nothing had been done so far. The number of such zones had now increased to 23 from eight at that time. Sarurpur, Mujheri, Gazipur, Mujesar, Bajri, New DLF, SGM Nagar, Jawahar Colony, Indira Colony, Ajronda and Dabua-Pali road are among prominent non-conforming zones.
Deputy Commissioner Yashpal Yadav, however, said the authorities were working to resolve the issue on priority.
