Submit report on  ground breaking ceremony within a month: Yogi

Lucknow, Sep 23 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, as part of the preparations for the Ground Breaking Ceremony (GBC), has issued a directive to all District Magistrates (DMs) in the state to submit investment-related reports within a month.
He has also directed all the DM and Divisional Commissioners to hold investment-focused review meetings and fix accountability at every level so that a greater number of investment projects can be implemented through GBC.
It may be noted that UP received investment proposals exceeding Rs 36 lakh crore during GIS-23. Throughout this period, investors expressed keen interest in investing in all 75 districts of the state.
In a high-level meeting, the CM directed all DM and DC to focus on providing land through land banks for investors. He emphasized the need to make GBC as grand as GIS-23 and instructed them to work with the utmost transparency and end the pendency as soon as possible.
He said that the current environment in the state is the best for investments. "Even smaller districts like Mirzapur, Kasganj, Maharajganj, Sant Ravidas Nagar, Balrampur, Hathras, Ayodhya, Gonda, Barabanki, and Sultanpur have received big investment proposals," he said.
Keeping this in mind, Yogi directed officials to hold one-on-one meetings with all investors and remove any issues or investment barriers. Additionally, all DMs have been directed to submit investment-related reports to the CM office within a month.
He said that he would personally review the report. During this process, the CM also stressed taking strict action in cases of negligence.
During the meeting, officials presented a report to the CM regarding the conversion of agricultural land to non-agricultural land, which showed a rapid increase in applications to convert agricultural land to non-agricultural land after GIS-23.
So far, 42,706 applications have been received from various districts of the state. Out of these, 85 percent of the total applications have been processed, accounting for 36,327. Currently, there are 6,388 pending applications. Among these, 1,224 pending applications fall within the 45-day time limit, while 5,121 pending applications are beyond the time limit.
Similarly, investors have submitted 1,017 application letters through the Nivesh Mitra portal. Out of these, 89 percent of the total applications have been processed, accounting for 904 applications. There are 113 pending applications, with 104 of them falling within the time limit, and 9 pending applications are beyond the time limit.
