CITU national general secretary Tapen Sen, today sought to know why the Narendra Modi government was not taking “unutilised” land allotted for the creation of Special Economic Zones (SEZ).

CITU national general secretary Tapen Sen, today sought to know why the Narendra Modi government was not taking “unutilised” land allotted for the creation of Special Economic Zones (SEZ).

“There is no dearth of land in the country to create infrastructure. Fifty per cent of land allotted to SEZs is still lying unutilised in the country for the last six to eight years,” Sen told reporters here.

Fearing the land might go to real estate business, he suggested for a survey of land held by PSUs under the government’s supervision to take the unutilised land from both state and central industrial units “instead of going into green areas.”

“Some industrial units are even closed, but land is lying unutilised,” the CITU general secretary claimed.

He reminded the BJP that the Land Acquisition Bill, 2013 was passed by Parliament with the support of BJP. “Only the Left parties had moved some amendments to protect the bill,” he added.

    It takes 4 to 5 yrs to construct a simple 20 floor building in any city.... this expert Tapen Sen thinks SEZ over hundreds of acres in remote locations can be built over night..... complete joker!

      This Tapen Sen is a true joker:.... Thinks large SEZs can be developed overnight.... & Government can take away just any SEZ from developers after developers pump in private funds n bank loans to purchase SEZ lands...! Fool does not seem to know that even constructing a single multistory building of 20 floors in any urban city takes 4 to 5 years.... even a kid knows that constructing buildings & factory units on acres of lands in the middle of no-where with little urban connectivity in a planned manner takes several years....!

        A valid point. If this land is used,it can reduce demand for land for industrial development eating into already fast vanishing forest land.

          Because:- 1.The aim is "creation of food shortage" to usher in US GMO Cos. 2.NDA's policies,like those of the UPA,are pro-Globalist[One World Totalitarian Government of the Oligarchs] and henc e anti-people. This will usher in revolution,and hence tangibles,the preserver of wealth have to be taken away from the people.Hence the so-called Gold Monetization Scheme,high taxes on Gold and Silver imports,while signing FTAs etc.Revolutions can be reduced by "herding" people to/in Cities. 3.Cashless Society for Surveillance [One World Totalitarian Government].This is achieved by discouraging possession of tangibles,like Land,Gold,Silver etc.

            Though I support the land bill, the suggestion given by Mr. Sen has merit. Companies which have been reporting loss for the past five years, which have been shutdown or which have ceased production should be taken over by the government and auctioned to the highest bidder. The company holding the land can be given 30% of the proceeds with 50% going to the State Government and 20% to the original land owners after deducting the cost. This will ensure ready availability of land for industries and will ensure that land provided for industries are not diverted for other purpose and the original land owners always stand to benefit from the transaction of land atleast for the first 100 years.
