Industrial land bank to have pan-India info by year end: Govt

The country’s one-stop repository of all industrial infrastructure-related information, the India Industrial Land Bank (IILB), has around 4,000 industrial parks mapped across an area of 5.5 lakh hectare of land and will achieve pan-India integration by December as against integration with the industry-based geographic information system of 17 states, the government said on Friday.

The commerce and industry ministry said in a statement that the website with IILB’s details has seen a 30% increase in page views each month since April with the highest visitors from India followed by the US, Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore, UAE, Germany, and Indonesia.

“The website…received 55,000 page views in June compared to 44136 page views in May 2021 and 30,153 page views in April 2021. In the previous quarter (April-June 2021), total users were 13,610 out of which 12,996 were unique users with total page views of approximately 1.3 lakh,” the ministry said in a statement.

IILB is a GIS-based portal with all industrial infrastructure-related information such as connectivity, infra, natural resources and terrain, plot-level information on vacant plots, line of activity, and contact details.

Information on the land bank is accessible on the websites of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, and Invest India.

Demonstration of the IILB portal and mobile application was given at various outreach events to Industry Associations, Singapore Indian High Commission, Indian Embassy of Korea, KOTRA and Malaysian & Korean Investors.

“A mobile application (wherein login is not required) was launched on Android and iOS stores. Additional features are to be introduced soon,” the ministry said.

Budget 2020-21 had provided for pre-investment advisory and information related to land banks, besides facilitating clearances, in order to attract higher investment and increase ease of doing business in India.
