PORVORIM: IT Minister Rohan Khaunte today said that the works on the administration building, electricity, water supply, e-waste plant, and warehouse, aside from the ETP, are now underway at Electronic City.
MLA Mandrem Jit Arolkar inquired about the Electronic Manufacturing Cluster’s current state and anticipated completion dates for outstanding tasks.
He also emphasized the importance of connecting the National Highway with the Electronic Manufacturers Cluster.
“Works of Administration building, Electricity, Water supply, E-Waste Plant, and Warehouse except for ETP are currently underway at Electronic City at Tuem,” stated Khaunte.
He added that the project will cost a total of Rs 161 crore, of which 73 crore will be provided to the state by the federal government.
According to Khaunte, two large plots have already been handed to the industry, and three further minor plots have also been given to a hardware company and another enterprise.
“The project is scheduled to be finished in March 2024. There will be a connection between Tuem and the National Highway city via a link road. For 2.6 km of road, almost 22 crores have been allocated.
To promote new units, we have established an incentive-based land allocation program, Minister Khaunte continued.
The delay in building the connection road, which is necessary for the cluster to take off, was questioned by MLA Arolkar.
The IT Minister stated that the contractor is required to do the task since he is aware of the timeline for finishing the project.
