JAMMU: Bari Brahmana Industries Association (BBIA) raised serious concern over the non-implementation of Ease of Doing concept by the Power Development Department resulting in the State’s position at 22nd Rank amongst the Indian states in the Ease of Doing Business ranking.
In the meeting held here on Wednesday, BBIA President, Lalit Mahajan said that with the sincere efforts of Shalindra Kumar, Principal Secretary, Industries & Commerce Department and Chairman, Pollution Control Department, the J&K State has achieved 22nd position from 31st ranking of last year.
“The industrial sector is suffering very badly due to delay in the power sanction due to cumbersome procedures adopted by the Power Development Department resulting unit holders have no option but to run from one department to other department of PDD for the clearance of files which includes M&RE-Division, STD Division, System & Operation Wing and Grid Construction Division where as it is the need of the hour to have online data with the M&RE Division in respect of the availability of the power load at the respective grid/receiving stations,” he added.
BBIA appealed to the Governor, N.N Vohra to issue necessary directions for the adoption of Ease of Doing concept by PDD Department for the time bound sanction of power cases, re-delegation of the powers to minimise the delay in the sanction of power connection which will also improve the State ranking in the Ease of Doing concept and also provide relief to the industrial sector of the State.
Suresh Mahajan, Senior Vice President, Ajay Langer General Secretary, Vivek Singhal Secretary and Viraaj Malhotra Treasurer BBIA were also present in the meeting.
