December 14th, 2010 - 8:19 pm ICT by IANS  

Chandigarh, Dec 14 (IANS) To cash in on the growing interest of foreign companies and Indian industrial houses wanting to invest in the state, the Haryana government will set up three new industrial model townships (IMTs) besides other industrial estates in the state.Three industrial estates and seven more industry-cum-service centres would also be set up at different locations in the state for promotion of industries and creation of more opportunities for employment, an official spokesman said here Tuesday.

The three new IMTs were coming up at Faridabad in the national capital region (NCR) of Delhi and Rohtak and Kharkhoda in NCR vicinity.

The three new industrial estates are to be set up at Sohna, Ambala and Dharuhera and the seven new industry-cum-service centres are being set up in Kaithal, Hisar, Bhiwani, Narnaul, Mahendergarh, Jhajjar and Gohana.

Haryana is already home to several leading industrial houses like Maruti-Suzuki, Hero Honda, Nestle, Hollister, Denso, Baxter, Yokohama, JCB and Mitsubishi, among others.

Most of them are located in the Gurgaon-Manesar industrial belt near Delhi while new ones have come up in the Kundli-Sonepat belt.

Haryana, which attracted industrial investments of nearly Rs.530 billion (Rs.53,000 crore) in the last four years, has set up industrial estates in Rohtak, Kundli, Rai, Barhi and Faridabad.

“Haryana has a large number of IT SEZs (special economic zones) and cyber parks coming up. It reflects the measure of confidence IT companies repose in Haryana to set up units, grow and expand operations. Large IT companies like Agilent, Convergys, IBM Daksh, Educomp and Genpact are operating out of Gurgaon. In 2009-10, Haryana software exports aggregated Rs.23,000 crore (Rs.230 billion),” the spokesman said.

IT company HCL has also set up a Rs.2.5 billion (Rs.250 crore) technology hub at Manesar, 40 km from Delhi.
