Resurgent Rajasthan, an ostentatious, new-generation investor’s meet organised by Rajasthan government witness signing of around 60 MoUs for business and commercial purpose. After a gap of 1 year, the agreements are still in progress. To speed up the work in different sectors, the JDA (Jaipur Development Authority) has braced itself to push the MoUs towards completion.
Accordingly, JDA will set up a CCC (Citizen Care Centre) between 10 am to 4 pm on weekdays to monitor the progress of important agreements pertaining to directorate of local bodies, health and tourism department. JDA officials will also get in touch with the investors for feedback and make attempts to resolve public problems.
Recently, it came into their notice that about 3 dozen projects related to hotels and resorts were still pending. Delays in processing applications for NOC (no objection certificate) and land conversion were major factors affecting the on-ground transfer of these projects. These projects were important as they would pitch Rajasthan as a major tourist destination in India.
What’s Causing Delay in Processing of MoUs signed at Resurgent Rajasthan?
In a few cases, these projects were stalled because the Jodhpur high court barred land conversion in major ecological zones in Rajasthan. The court has directed various cities to maintain the ethical sanctity of the (MDPs) or master development plans while transferring the projects from paper to land. Other reasons include unavailability of land approach and technical reasons.
The court specifically directed the authorities to conform to land standards specified under various plans.
As reported by Rajasthan government, the progress of MoU signed between hospitals and Rajasthan government during Resurgent Rajasthan is swiftly moving ahead with JDA allotting 12,500 square metres of land to Apollo hospital in Chitrakoot during a meeting conducted by land and property committee (LPC).
The authorities plan to wrap these projects up before 2020.
