Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Government has approached the Centre expressing reservation in alloting land for a proposed Special Economic Zone promoted by the Anil Ambani group, as the site identified for the project is not “contiguous.”
The state government has conveyed to the Centre that guidelines were not followed in proposing allotment of land to ADAG for a multi-product SEZ in Noida, Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekhar Singh told reporters.
The SEZ was proposed to be developed on 1,200 acres.
Singh said that a three-member committee headed by the Principal Secretary (Finance) found that the land proposed to be allotted to ADAG was not contiguous, which was a basic requirement for allotment.
“There exists a road in the middle of the land,” he added.
The decision not to forward the matter to the Centre was taken at a meeting of the state cabinet chaired by chief minister Mayawati, he said.
