Uttar Pradesh’s government has cleared the way for Baba Ramdev’s brand Patanjali Ayurveda Limited (PAL) to install its mega project in the state. Earlier, the brand had submitted a proposal to the government of Uttar Pradesh for setting Rs 2,000 crore project in the state. After going through the submission made by Patanjali, the project has received a green signal from UP’s Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
The state’s officials informed that the proposal has found favourable response from the SP government and has, in fact, received the nod of CM. It will now be taken to the state cabinet next week for approval.
While spilling the details to a news agency, Chief Secretary Deepak Singhal stated that the venture was first of its kind aiming at integrating farmers to the markets and the wider world. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has been telling the officials to ensure that all developmental projects and investments have something substantial to offer and the Patanjali project is one such.
The sources revealed that the government has ramped up its operations for the project and has already allocated two portions of land (400 acers in total) in sectors 22E and 24A of Greater Noida on the Yamuna Expressway for setting up of a Super Mega Food and Herbal Park, and at the villages of Safa and Moza in Jhansi.
An official said the group's proposal came just a fortnight back but was attended to at a lightening speed, and the Steering Committee of officials headed by the Chief Secretary Deepak Singhal -- which takes a call on proposals above Rs 200 crore -- stamped its approval on the project, after which the matter was taken to the Chief Minister for his consent.
