Port Blair, July 14: The ex-Adhyaksha ZP SA and Zilla Parishad Member, Wimberlygunj, Miss Mariyam Bibi recently met the Director Industries and enquired about the status of development of Industrial Estate at Lambapahad. The land for this purpose was allotted long back ago and necessary estimate was also prepared by the APWD for its development.

The Director informed that the estimated cost was very high and it's not feasible due to its narrow approach road. He informed that after a detailed discussion with the senior officials, the department has decided to shift the industrial unit site to some other place near Wimberlygunj. Accordingly a new site was identified in Kanyapuram village and for the allotment of land, it was sent to Deputy Commissioner SA.

Mariyam Bibi then met DC and requested him to allot the said land so that the industrial estate can be set up there and the unemployed youths will get the opportunity to set up their own units/industry. The DC has assured to allot the above said land at the earliest.
