A meeting was held Thursday by Surya Pratap Singh, principal secretary, infrastructure and industrial development department (IIDD), in which officials of 22 governments departments and bodies attended.



Directions were issued to all departments to provide details and records of unutilised land within one week, so that the land appropriate for infrastructure and industrial development could be identified and allotted to departments concerned.

Singh told IANS that "Infrastructure and Industrial Investment Policy 2012 of UP provides for creation of land banks to facilitate infrastructure and industrial development as land is the primary requirement for it."
