CM of Gujarat, Bupendra Patel “The state government is ready to take up administrative reforms. Whatever reforms are required for the building sector will be undertaken in consultation with the industry.”
On Wednesday, Bhupendra Patel, Chief Minister of Gujarat said that for the real estate sector, the government is ready to undertake administration reform to assure the real estate developers and to minimize the confusion arising out of provisions or directives of administration.
At the launch of CREDAI Foundation which is a permanent corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative of CREDAI Ahmedabad-GIHED, Patel said while addressing a bevy of real developers that “The state government is ready to take up administrative reforms. Whatever reforms are required for the building sector will be undertaken in consultation with the industry,”
He further added “With your support, the government will make all efforts to minimize administrative confusions as much as possible. We want to put an end to the practice where files (projects) are held up due to two or more interpretations of a single provision. Once a provision is made, it should carry only one meaning (interpretation) at a time”, added Patel, who himself is a builder.
Government has never done anything wrong and will never indulge in any wrongdoings, Patel said while clearing the things. CM told the developers that “Get one thing clear, any stain on me is a stain on you.”
