Inviting the industrialists to set up base in Haryana, the Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that the Government has created a conducive environment and providing various facilities to them.
“They will not face any problem in doing business in Haryana…The Government has created a single room system, under which all types of permissions to industries are given in 45 days,” said Khattar, while addressing the industrialists after releasing the coffee table book ‘Sikh Business Leaders of India’ authored by Dr Prabhleen at a programme organized in Delhi.
Stating that the State Government has made four categories A, B, C and D, he elaborated that if industries are set up in category C and D zones, the State Government will reimburse Rs 4,000 per worker per month for the next four years.
Hailing the huge contribution of the Sikh community to the state, the country, and the world, Khattar said: “This community is a working community and has worked hard with struggle to advance their business, family, country and society. They are also working to take forward and uplift the needy, who have been left behind from the mainstream due to some reason.”

Rs 15,000 Per Acre Compensation to Farmers for Crop Damage
Stating that the State Government is standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the farmers, Khattar said: “If there is any kind of loss to the farmers, the State Government gives immediate compensation…The government is paying compensation at the rate of Rs 15,000 per acre.”
Khattar said that during the Congress’ 10-year tenure, the farmers got compensation of about Rs 1200 crore, while the present State Government had given compensation of Rs 1,200 crore in the year 2015 itself. “Perceiving the crop loss this time also, it seems that the State Government will have to pay more compensation; but we will not let the farmers suffer the loss,” he added.
“On the Meri Fasal Mera Byora portal, farmers register complete information about their land area and crop. Now the Government has also created the e-Fasal Kshatipurti portal, on which the farmers register their crop loss within 72 hours. The whole process is going on in a transparent manner and the compensation will be provided to all the farmers by the month of May,” he said.
