Dehradun, October 25

Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna laid a foundation stone of Logistic Hub, a joint venture of SIDCUL and Concor, at Haldwani Road near Pantnagar today.

Bahuguna said Logistic Hub would be completed in one and a half year. He urged the entrepreneurs to set up their units as environment for industries was favourable in the state and the government was willing to support them.
Addressing the general public, Bahuguna said since 2002, the advent of big industrial houses in SIDCUL at Pantnagar and Haridwar had carved a special identity for the state. Not only the investment but job opportunities had also increased since then. He observed that Logistic Hub would connect SIDCUL with the world as it would facilitate industries with containers for exports of their goods, railway yard for embarkation and transportation, parking facilities for trucks and trailers, godowns, bank and office for companies, rainwater harvesting and 24 hour power supply.
He said availability of railway yard would minimise transportation cost. He said the state government, with the help of the Centre, would invest Rs 500 crore with the assistance of the HPCL for comprehensive development of the state and generate sufficient employment opportunities for youths. He said the state government would also prepare industrial policy which would benefit the youths.
The Chief Minister said the establishment of Logistic Hub would directly and indirectly provide jobs to about 3,000 people. He said low cost residence would also be provided to the workers of SIDCUL. He made it clear that in SIDCUL Phase-II, Sitarganj, the lands would be provided only to entrepreneurs.
State Parliamentary Affairs and Finance Minister Indira Hridayesh said after the establishment of Logistic Hub, the transportation facilities would also extend in the SIDCUL areas. She said it was an endeavour of the government to extend air service facilities in Pantnagar Airport for the convenience of industrialists. She, however, expected that local youths would be provided jobs as per the set norms in the industrial units.
State Revenue Minister Yashpal Arya said the establishment of the Logistic Hub was a great step towards development. Uttarakhand Peyjal and School Education Minister Mantri Prasad Naithani said Logistic Hub would connect the state with industrialisation which would ultimately benefit the people.
Chief Secretary Alok Kumar Jain, Principal Secretary Omprakash and Concor MD Anil Gupta elaborated on the facilities available in Logistic Hub.
Also present on the occasion were Labour, Small-Scale Industry Minister Harish Chandra Durgapal, Chiarman, Mandi Parishad, Shailendra Mohan Singhal, MLAs Rajesh Shukla, Rajkumar Thukral, Harbhajan Singh Cheema, Saket Bahuguna and Sanjiv Arya.
