Government Revises Policy for Logistics Parks and Warehouses in Haryana
On Tuesday, the cabinet revised the policy governing the establishment of multi-modal logistics parks (MMLPs), integrated inland container depots, logistics parks, warehouses-cum-retail, truckers parks, cash and carry, warehouse, cold-chain facilities, and gas godowns. According to the amended policy, integrated inland container depots or custom bounded areas can now be established on a minimum of 20 acres, replacing the previous requirement of 50 acres. Agro-warehouses with retail facilities will now need a minimum area of two acres, while non-agro warehouses with retail facilities must have a minimum of five acres. The amendments aim to maintain consistency in eligibility conditions and approach norms across policies in both the town and country planning and industries and commerce departments. The Industries and Commerce department will align the Haryana Logistics, Warehousing, and Retail Policy, 2019, with the revised proposal.
