GLADA asks suggestions for Mattewara industrial park

A meeting was conducted by The Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) with the different industrial associations so that their suggestions can be taken on Mattewara industrial park.

In the meeting, Members of industrial associations including Knitwear and Textile Club, Ludhiana Dyers’ Association, and Federation of Industrial and Commercial Organisation (FICO) were present. They gave suggestions on the size of the plots, the establishment of effluent treatment plants (ETP), connectivity, and earmarking space to establish labour quarters.

According to Vinod Thapar, President, Knitwear and Textile Club, the club has suggested that there should be space for labour quarters because it would be otherwise difficult to transport labourers to that area. He also said that the size of the plots that will be allocated should not be less than 1,000 square yards.

As per Rahul Verma, Focal Point Dyeing industry, currently GLADA is charging a very high price for a minimum plot of 1 acre. He also said that the industry should earmark space for small and medium industry and a residential colony should also be developed here.

Members of different NGOs were also a part of the meeting and they raised objections over the alleged proposal to make an industrial park on the flood plains of Sutlej River. According to PS Gill, Chief administrator, GLADA, PSIEC will take the final decision regarding whether a textile park will be made or any other sector will be involved.
