The cabinet gave permission for land use change for setting up of 550 MW capacity solar power project by NTPC or its wholly owned company under Ultra Mega Renewal Energy Power Project mode and CPSU scheme on the land acquired/allocated for thermal power project. MP Power Management Company will have the first right to purchase the solar energy produced from the proposed project at the rate of Rs 2.45 per unit for 25 years.

A thermal power project of 3960 MW capacity was proposed by NTPC Limited, a Central Government Undertaking at Barethi in Chhatarpur district. NTPC has 1148.192 hectares of land available for this project. Due to non-receipt of environmental clearance and coal linkage for thermal power project, NTPC has sought land use change permission from the state government for solar power project of 550 MW capacity on available land.

Amendment in the policy of Telecom/Internet Services

Keeping in view the facilities of the citizens in the state, with the aim of promoting telecommunication internet services in the state, the policy-2019 and guidelines 2019 for establishment of telecom infrastructure for telecom internet services prevailing in the state are in force. The Council of Ministers has approved to amend the Policy 2019 and Guidelines-2019 keeping in view the needs of development of telecom/internet services in the present scenario.

According to the Collector’s guideline rates for government land to be used for the establishment of telecom infrastructure, an amount equivalent to 20 percent of the value fixed for the land/property concerned is received as license fee. The above provision has been simplified as it is complex to calculate the license fee to be paid for separate infrastructure sites. Simplifying the process of fee payment in this regard, instead of the Collector’s guideline, categorizing the metropolis (Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur and Gwalior), other municipal corporations, municipal councils, city councils and rural areas into different categories, category wise, for each place (in the case of government land), Rs. 50 thousand in metropolis, Rs. 40 thousand in other municipal corporation, Rs. 35 thousand in municipal council, Rs. 30 thousand in city council and Rs. 20 thousand in rural area has been fixed.

In the state where any telecommunication infrastructure is established on private land/local body/public undertaking/commission land without license, then if eligible under the policy-2019, in addition to the fee provided in the policy, the license can be issued by regularizing such infrastructure after depositing the compounding amount according to the value of the space at the rate of Rs. 1 lakh per tower.

The above amendments will expand the telecommunication infrastructure in the state, increase the telecommunication services and help the licensing officers in taking decisions in the districts.
