New Delhi:Ahead of Bengal Global Business Summit, again state government claims, there is no problem with the availability of land, declaring that the government will remain neutral when investors have to buy land on their own directly from the owners.
The government has expressed its willingness to help the investors to get land for various projects including power plants, highways and housing.
It is learnt that in the upcoming summit which is being held in Kolkata, the government will try to put up an investment friendly image and convince the investors with the availability of land.
Sources in the land and land reforms department indicated that it has around 75,000 acres in the land bank, while 30,000 acres are with the other departments.
The summit which is being held on 7-8 January this year will be attended by delegates from 19 countries. Among them diplomatic envoys from 14 countries will also be present at the summit. According to government sources, Chairperson of Britain’s India Business Council and former minister Patricia Wight and Japanese organization Mitsubishi Chemical’s Global CEO Hirowki Isijuka will also be present at the summit.

How far the summit will be successful is now just a matter of time.
