Vision of GOI that caused beauty of IIUS scheme for infrastructure development at Unnao:

Project at Unnao

IIUS Scheme for Infrastructure Development at Unnao

Govt. of India Department of Industrial Policy& Promotion motivated IL&FS for the initial ground level survey at Unnao and Kanpur without any immediate survey cost imposed upon industries. IL&FS thus after assessing the merits and efficiencies of the industrial management at two CETPs established by industries through their respective Section 25 Companies formed by them at UPSIDC Site-II Unnao in 1995 & UPSIDC Banthar Leather Park Unnao in the year 2004 , submitted a project under IIUS to GOI, DoIPP, Ministry of Commerce & Industry in consultation with CETP Unnao & CETP Banthar in two different clusters who provided all the technical data to IL&FS for preparing the feasibility report. In this way GOI, DoIPP had sanctioned a project of Common Hazardous Waste Disposal Facility at UPSIDC Leather Technology Park Banthar on 29th March 2005. Project suffered badly because of delay by UPSIDC in land. This project was officially proposed by UPSIDC itself using the shoulders of Leather industries of district of Unnao situated in various clusters of Industries developed by UPSIDC who were on the verge of closure due to absence of Common Hazardous Waste Disposal Facility as per the directives of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India for the Hazardous Waste (Management &Handling) Rules 1989 and its further amendments.

UPSIDC made following two commitments in writing along with its proposal of the project submitted to Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), Government of India through IL&FS:

  • UPSIDC committed for providing 33 acres land to SPV formed under control of GOI, DIPP, which is developing the project.
  • UPSIDC’s 10% financial contribution in the project as per their commitment letter to the Govt. of India.
Finally UPSIDC Could provide only 18 acre available land out of 33 acres committed land but no state government subsidy could be made available by UPSIDC till date which came as an extra burden on the Industry only.
The industry is highly thankful to the Government of India,DoIPP for its IIUS scheme that is boon for SMEs specially in environmental management projects like CETPs and CHWDF etc and also to UP State Industrial Development Corporation for its initiative of proposing the project and providing 18 acres land to this project. The monitoring style and intensive support of the government of India, DoIPP even in resolving state level problems through direct coordination with the respective departments and its cooperation so sincerely and honestly to the stake holders of SPV is beyond our imagination in this era.
