To set up a food park of Patanjali Yogpeeth at Mihan, Nagpur, the Maharashtra government is holding talks with yoga guru Baba Ramdev. The government is seeking land from him to set up the food park.
During the question hour, Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister Maharashtra said, “There has not been any land allotted to Patanjali in Mihan as yet. But, we are in talks with them. They have a highly successful food park at Haridwar, which is a Rs 5000 crore business, which helps farmers directly.”
The Maharashtra government has also sent notices to 30 entities in the past 17 months who have taken land but have not started their industrial units yet. Out of which, land of eight has been taken back.
The government is also planning to dedicate 500 acre space to develop Agro Processing Industries at Mihan and special incentives will be provided for the purpose. The multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Mihan (Nagpur) is the biggest development project currently underway in Nagpur in terms of investments.
