I am quite surprised at the West Bengal government’s commitment to the chemical hub at Nayachar. The latest news is that PCR Chemicals, a joint venture between the West Bengal Industrial Development Corp and New Kolkata International Development, will be developing the infrastructure at the hub.
New Kolkata has been promoted by Indonesia’s Salim Group, Unitech Ltd and Universal Success.
Land has also been transferred to the state government’s industries department for development.
Where is the green lobby? I have not yet heard of any major protests.
