Bhubaneswar, May 9:
In order to address the impediments and bottlenecks faced by small projects in a number of areas, including land acquisition and multiple clearances, the Project Monitoring Group (PMG) of the Cabinet Committee on Investment (CCI) today launched a state-level PMG for Odisha aimed at fast-tracking industrial and infrastructure projects with investments in the range of Rs 100-1000 crore.
Chief Secretary Jugal Kishore Mohapatra opened the system by clicking it at the Secretariat here.
Explaining the objective and utility of the system, Anil Swarup, Additional Secretary , Cabinet Secretariat, said that the system has been developed to track projects involving investment between Rs.100 cr to Rs.1000 cr. “The system will automate the entire tracking of all stalled and ongoing investment projects in the context of the bottlenecks. The system includes facilities for online submission of projects, editing and updating of the projects, reviewing the projects and submission of details relating to bottlenecks, if any,” said Swarup.
“Fourteen states have agreed to launch the mechanism but Odisha is the first to be chosen for the facility. The state has been chosen because it is ahead in terms of the number of projects, problems and the commitment to get the issues resolved”, said the additional secretary at the Cabinet Secretariat.
The Sub-Group meetings of CCI and decisions taken thereon for removal of bottlenecks have also been integrated with the system.
Any private entrepreneur or any Department or Ministry willing to start a project or resolve the bottlenecks of any project can register through http//cabsec.gov.in or http//cadsec.nic.in. to get their login credentials.
The concerned Ministry or Department will act upon the project or proposal submitted by the entrepreneur, which will be automatically transmitted to CCI cell at Cabinet Secretariat for final decision.
The investors can raise their issues through this platform and get the response immediately for resolution of the problems, said the Chief Secretary.
