23-24 February,2023

The two day Progressive Punjab Investor Summit was held at ISB Mohali. The sessions were attended by members. Investment opportunities were shared with delegations from Japan and UK.

24-28 February,2023

Mach Auto Expo 2023 was held in Ludhiana. President and Office Bearers attended the session. Many of our members participated in the expo.


Workshop on Power Quality Meters was organised by PSPCL. Schneider Electric Company officials were present during this workshop and informed the attendees on the usage and benefits of Smart Meters. Smart Meters will be installed in industries from March 2023 in a phased manner.


The corporation (Punjab Small Industries & Export Corporation Ltd.) has sought suggestions from the stakeholders i.e.  PSIEC, Industry, Government and others with regard to subdivision of industrial plots and Clubbing/De-clubbing of plots. We had sought suggestions from the members and the following were shared with the MD,PSIEC.

Bifurcation and Clubbing/De-Clubbing of plots is the need of the Industry. Keeping in view the changing business environment this cannot be done away with. We suggest that Bifurcation / Clubbing-De-Clubbing be allowed for plots 1000 sq.yards and above and minimum 400 sq yards should be allowed as per the existing policy of 2005 of PSIEC.


         This policy has various sub-issues which are not addressed clearly under a single policy viz’ no. of gates; opening of gates into certain specified size of roads; road connectivity and service lanes should be clarified.


         Timelines/TATs for the bifurcation approval process should be clearly specified.


         Application and the process should be digitized/online.


         Plots should be allowed to be clubbed/de-clubbed as per the need of the industry for as many times without restriction, keeping in view the dynamic nature of the industry.


         Numbering of the combined   plot may be allowed single one of the existing (as per choice), to avoid the many mandatory formalities due to change in the address. (Eg. if   K112   AND K 113 are clubbed and combined plot number is mentioned as K112 & K113, it has to be changed in all documents.) This should be avoided.  


         The new policy should not have retrospective effect on the existing 2005 policy which is comprehensive and suitable for all stakeholders.


         Any changes made in the existing Bifurcation / Clubbing-De-Clubbing Policy should be for the future. PSIEC has allowed bifurcation of many plots in Punjab under 2005 Policy. Out of these bifurcated plots, construction had been done as per approved plans and industrial activities had been commenced. The bifurcated portions have been transferred a number of times after charging the applicable transfer fees.

         Now suddenly PSIEC is not processing the transfer documents, lease deeds, map approvals and permission to mortgage which is not justified at all as this all has already been approved by them only and is causing lot of pain to new entrepreneurs. You are requested to instruct Estate office to process the transfer cases as well as other activities related to already bifurcated plots in various focal points of Punjab.


         Uniform policy for PSIEC and PSIDC since they are perceived now as a single entity. Uniform policy by all development agencies across Punjab should be there.

4. Golden Jubilee of Mohali Industries Association 1973-2023.

The President informed that to commemorate this, the Association is organizing a multi-product exhibition MIA EXPO 23 on 17th & 18th March, 2023. Invitation and details will be shared with the members shortly.

The President informed that we had made arrangement for 60 stalls but due to the overwhelming response received from members the number of stalls was increased to 100 and we are happy to share that all the stalls are now booked.

It’s the first B2B exhibition which will benefit the industry. We are making arrangements for advertisement Boards and Banners and would also seek the support of the members to make this event successful.

Members suggested that they have space available in Sector 7 Panchkula / Mohali which can be utilized for putting up an advertisement board.
