      2. HSIIDC will set up Industrial Estates on its own or jointly with private promoters or others in potential areas. Such areas will be identified by the Industries Department and the HSIIDC, keeping in view the objectives of the State Govt. to ensure planned and speedy industrialisation of the State and dispersal of industry in the backward areas.
      3. Plots will be offered for allotment within a period of one year from the date of the acquisition of land.
      4. The developing agency may facilitate/participate in setting up of captive power generation station with suitable distribution net-work within Industrial Estate in association with public/private sector where ever such projects are feasible.
      5. Maintenance of Industrial Estates will occupy a high priority with the developing agencies.
      6. The anticipated expenditure for capital maintenance would be capitalised for 10 years while arriving at the rate of developed land. However, service charges such as water & sewerage charges, STP/CETP operation and maintenance, street lighting, solid waste management and cleanliness etc. would be charged from the beginning. The HSIIDC may continue to maintain and provide municipal services within the estate thereafter against realisation of full capital maintenance and service charges or may hand over the same to the local body/ Association of the allottees on completion of this period for further maintenance. A clause would be inserted in the agreement to be executed with the allottees regarding payment of maintenance and service charges to HSIIDC and/ or such body/association.
      7. The industrial plots/sheds will be allotted keeping in view the development schedule of the Industrial Estates. The developing agency will carry out the development works either from its own resources or by arranging funds from Government/Financial Institutions or in participation with the private sector. Wherever the developing agency is a minor share-holder in the joint venture, apart from license-fee payable to the Government, a minimum return on its investment will be ensured to the developing agency.
      8. While planning development of industrial infrastructure, due regard will be given to the concept of balanced regional development.
