Fulfilling a long-pending demand of the industry, the UT Administration has decided to allow IT hardware and software manufacturing in the Industrial Area.
With the Supreme Court having quashed the acquisition for Phase III of the IT Park, all eyes had turned to the Industrial Area. The industrialists had been demanding that the medium, small and micro enterprises be given a chance to flourish.
A meeting of the officials of the administration, chaired by UT Advisor K K Sharma, was held recently in this regard.

Sharma said that the administration had clarified that IT software production would be allowed in the Industrial Area, and this would not be termed non-manufacturing activity.
The approval for starting IT hardware and software manufacturing industry would be given on conditions like availability of services such as parking and space. The administration is also expected to withdraw the notices for violations that were issued to those who had started IT services.
Industrialist Pankaj Khanna said that a long-pending demand had been fulfilled. He hoped that the other demands of the industry would also be met.
The IT Policy for the city was notified recently. It focuses on making Chandigarh a major IT hub. While IT and IT- enabled services are present in phases I and II of the IT Park, the acquisition of land for Phase III of the IT Park has been quashed by the Supreme Court. The Industrial Area was the only feasible option for this purpose.
