To harmonize development of Industrial area, MIDC has demarcated regions according to use such as Chemical, Engineering, Electronics, Textile, Leather etc., So far only chemical companies could operate in Chemical zone. Due to problems faced by new or existing units to set up different industry in a demarcated zone, MIDC has now relaxed this criteria.
Excluding zones meant for IT/Bi0-Tech park, any Industry can be set up in any zone provided that the proposed business activity doesn't come under Red category. Such proposals for change of use for example someone wants to set up an Electronics unit in Chemical zone; are to be first submitted to Dy. CEO (Environment) and there will not be any need for approval from MIDC. A permission from MPCB is mandatory in case of such change of use.
Please refer the circular attached herewith.
