Faridabad residents suffer as 70% of manufacturing units located in non-industrial areas

Faridabad, Mar 29 (KNN) Around 70 per cent of the industrial units in Faridabad are located in non-industrial areas, according to a report in the Tribune.

“Mixing up of the industry with residential and commercial areas has led to poor civic amenities. Manufacturing units functioning from these areas are ineligible for loans, no-objection certificate of the pollution board, other licences and documents and even authorised water and sewerage connections,” reported tribune quoting an entrepreneur.


The poor infrastructure has hampered the growth of the industry and the residents living in these areas have to deal with noise, air and water pollution, he added.

As per reports, majority of Faridabad’s industries are in areas such as Sarurpur, Mujheri, Gazipur, Mujesar, Bajri, New DLF, SGM Nagar, Jawahar Colony, Indira Colony, Krishna Colony, Malerna road, Gurukul, Kharkhana Bagh, Ajronda and Dabua-Pali.

The Chief Minister had issued directions to the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Corporation to prepare a draft and a report of the units operating in such areas in 2021. But no progress has been made in this regard.

Rajiv Chawla, president of the Integrated Association of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises of India says, “The demand for regularising such zones is being raised for several years. Due to delay in this process, both the industrial units and the residents are suffering.”

“The industry contributes an annual revenue of more than Rs 1,600 crore to the city, but the infrastructure is still in bad shape in the industrial pockets,” said Ramneek Prabhakar, general secretary of the Manufacturing Association of Faridabad.

A senior official of the Municipal Corporation claims that the concerned authorities are looking into the matter.  (KNN Bureau)
