Haryana deputy CM Dushyant Chautala, who also holds the portfolio of industries and commerce department, shared this information on Thursday while informing about the ‘Haryana Enterprises and Employment Policy- 2020’. Dushyant said this policy aims to generate five lakh jobs and attract investments over Rs one lakh crore in the next five years. This new policy would encourage exports under which a target of Rs two lakh crore has been set, he said.
Describing this policy as important for regional development and generating maximum employment, he said it will make Haryana as the country’s most preferred investment destination and augment livelihood opportunities through resilient economic development.
Exemption of labour laws
Under this policy, mega and ultra-mega projects will be exempted from the purview of all labour laws in Haryana, except the Minimum Wages Act, 1948, for a period of three years, subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions.
The limit of number of workers for exemption from coverage under the Factories Act, 1948, has been increased from 20 to 40 for the energy related industries.
Dushyant said the requirement for provision of basement parking will be removed in case of data centre units being surface parking sufficient. He said where a project is in force and payment of arrears of HSIIDC has been made, automatic provision for transfer of plots has been approved. To encourage micro and small scale industries, the FAR has been increased up to 250% of plots with an area of at least 2,000 square meters or more for flatted factories. He said that the FAR of HSIIDC plots with an area of more than 2,000 square meters for labour housing has been increased up to 250%.
The deputy CM also stated that a scheme will be formulated by HSIIDC to construct dormitories and industrial houses for workers in industrial estates. The decision has been taken as the need of housing was felt during the Covid-29 lockdown period. He said the new policy has been emphasised by the state government to develop industrial parks. Now, 50% (up to a maximum of Rs 40 crore) of project cost will be given for industrial park, refund of stamp duty up to 80% and 50% (up to a maximum of Rs 50 lakh) for construction of industrial housing and dormitories.
Special course for students
Three-month certificate course will also be conducted from the next academic session in ITIs and colleges to make the youth of the state more efficient. On giving employment to the people, the industries will be given Rs 48,000 per employee every year from the government.
