Capt’s go-ahead for start-up hub
Chandigarh: Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today approved the setting up of the Punjab Start-up Hub, under which a state-of-the-art incubation centre is proposed to be established in Mohali.
The CM also okayed the constitution of a high-level committee to draft a proposal for resettlement and rehabilitation of those who would be affected during eviction from panchayati land for setting up industrial hubs. The committee will comprise Financial Commissioner (Revenue); Principal Secretary, Rural Development and Panchayats; and Principal Secretary (Finance).
The directives were issued by the CM while chairing the maiden meeting of the Punjab Industrial and Business Development Board, which has been set up to ensure effective implementation of the new industrial policy.
