DELHI: The special dispensation for de-notified SEZs in Haryana to become eligible for developing industrial colony has evoked mixed response. The developers want single window clearance for the licences but real estate insiders claimed it would not be a cake-walk.

According to a recently announced policy of DTCP, under the special dispensation for de-notified SEZs industry colony licence can seek licence of industrial colonies as a one-time relaxation in the designated land use conditions. “The move is in right direction but some internal system should be developed for only de-notified SEZ. The single window system where clearance procedures are fast should be evolved,” said a developer, on condition of anonymity, who has SEZ in other states too.

As per the new policy the de-notified SEZ in Haryana with land measuring 50 acres and above, situated anywhere in the controlled areas or urban areas, except those falling in the residential land use zone of the development plan, shall also be eligible for licence of industrial colonies as a one time relaxation in the designated land use conditions.

For such cases, the site should conform to the sectoral plan of the sector and located within the urbanisable zone. Another condition is that the policy would cover the ‘De-notified SEZs’ which have already been de-notified by Ministry of Commerce and those which may be de-notified within six months from the date of notification of this policy.

The site should have an existing approach through a 22-foot-wide public rasta along with proposed approach through a minimum 24-metre-wide road. In case the sector concerned has internal circulation roads of less than 24 metres width, then such colonies will be considered on 18-metre-wide roads.

A real estate industry insider said: “The move is the last-ditch attempt of the state government to help builders. The de-notified SEZ are already caught in litigation between the landowners and developers.”

Over 50 landowners have dragged a builder to Punjab and Haryana high court to get back their land. “The land owners have started cultivating the land for which that had collateral agreement with the builder and now want the entire land back,” said another industry insider. He further added that when the developer would seek licence for the industry colony in de-notified SEZ, the landowners are bound to ask for more money. “The litigation would go up manifold because the developer won t like to pay more for the same land,” he said.
