NaMo boost to biz projects

Ranchi, Aug. 18: Narendra Modi will inject a healthy dose of optimism to Jharkhand Inc. by inaugurating a string of big-ticket projects across IT, energy and electronics sectors on August 21 in what is likely to be his first visit to Ranchi after becoming Prime Minister.

Modi is likely to lay the foundation stone for a 22,000sqft incubation facility to give more room to IT investors at the software technology park in Namkum Industrial Area, Ranchi. This apart, he is supposed to formally green-light a grid of Power Grid Corporation of India Limited in Bero, an electronic manufacturing cluster in Adityapur Industrial Area, Seraikela-Kharsawan, as well as Indian Oil Corporation Limited and National Thermal Power Corporation projects in Khunti and Chatra.

Modi is scheduled to do the honours online at an event on Prabhat Tara grounds, Dhurwa, between 11am and 1pm on Thursday.

Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) director-general Omkar Rai and Union ministry of communications and information technology joint secretary R.K. Goyal are reaching Ranchi tomorrow for a recce, a senior bureaucrat told The Telegraph today.

The 70-acre electronics cluster in Adityapur will be India’s second largest such facility after the one in Bangalore.

The state is also bullish about long-term gains from the 1,980MW North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project at Tandwa, Chatra. Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited will start groundwork on the project.

Indian Oil’s pipeline-laying project between Paradip, Odisha, and Khunti is almost ready.
