Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will soon offer the flat industrial complex in Agra. This is the first time in Uttar Pradesh that a flatbed factory is being built. The factory complex to be constructed at Foundry Nagar, Agra will be ready at a cost of around Rs 125 crore.
Yogi will lay the foundation stone of this flat industrial complex in the upcoming Shardiya Navratri. In this complex, 200 entrepreneurs will be able to set up their factories under one roof. The complex will rise on a plot of 21,500 m².
According to an official statement, for UP’s first industrial complex, 21,500 square meters of land has been selected in Agra Industrial Zone. This multi-storey building will have around 4 lakh square feet of construction area. It will have a total of four floors, including the ground floor. Each floor will have one lakh square feet of construction area. It will have nine elevators. No less than 200 entrepreneurs will be able to install their units in this complex of flat factories.
The statement further stated that there would be comprehensive provisions for fire safety. The factory will be entirely ecological.
Vice Chairman of Uttar Pradesh Laghu Udyog Nigam Limited Rakesh Garg said contractors can start their work as soon as they arrive at the factory complex. They just have to plug in the machines and start production. “Entrepreneurs need huge amounts of land to set up industries. After that, permission must be taken from several other departments. This effort has been made so that entrepreneurs can set up their factories hassle-free and on a low budget. Along with this, the first apartment factory complex in the state is being built in Agra with a bank loan and all the other facilities,” he added.
The plant site will be made available to contractors at actual cost price. In this flat factory complex, preference will be given to new start-up operators including white category industries like garment industry. Within this framework, the garment industry will be developed. There is also enthusiasm among garment entrepreneurs in Agra about this.
Ashok Maheshwari, General Secretary of Agra Readymade Garments Sangathan, said that the construction of this complex will save time for the manufacturer and the buyer.
