World Bank to fund UP's master plans

Lucknow, July 26, 2013, IANS:

World Bank has agreed to fund the preparation of preliminary master plans of Auraiya investment zone and Allahabad-Naini-Bara investment zone, officials said on Friday.

Infrastructure and Industrial Development Department (IIDD) principal secretary Surya Pratap Singh said the Uttar Pradesh government was in an advanced stage of notifying two investment zones in Auraiya and Allahabad.

“Preparation of master plans of these zones would help in accelerating the implementation of dedicated freight corridor project,” he said.

The World Bank delegation led by Barjor Mehta, lead urban specialist, included agriculture and urbanisation expert Ireena Vittal, consultant, competitive industries practice and manufacturing, Yannik Salesman and urban planner Vibhu Jain.

Singh said once developed, the regions would catapult UP to the forefront of industrial growth. He said along with Allahabad and Auraiya, the state government would pitch for preparation of master plan of Kannauj also, giving much needed fillip to traditional ittar (perfume) industry in the region.

The state has proposed to develop two national investment and manufacturing zones (NIMZs) and five industrial zones along the state’s section of the industrial corridor.

Proposed NIMZs include Auraiya national investment and manufacturing zone (6,043 hectares) and Jhansi national investment and manufacturing zone (5,567 hectares).

Industrial zones have been proposed at Pashchimanchal industrial zone (2,000 hectares), Braj industrial zone (2,000 hectares), Kanpur Logistics hub (6,000 hectares), Allahabad-Naini-Bara investment zone (3,000 hectares) and Mughalsari-Varansai-Mirzapur investment zone (3,000 hectares).
