Xth Plan Achievements

Major Sources of funds for UPSIDC have been the internal generation (Recovery from Industrial. Area’s and disinvestment of shares), however there were limited budgetary support from the state Govt. and central Govt. also. Total resource availability including budgetary assistance is projected at Rs. 1585 laces during the 10th plan.

All the targets are being formulated in the annual action plan of the corporation. Corporation would be able to achieve the remaining targets of the Xth plan under the broad long terms objectives and vigorous efforts.

U.P. Financial Corporation (UPFC) Kanpur

U.P. financial Corporation was corporation was established in the year 1954 under the SFC’s Act 1951.the main aim of the corporation is to help the industrialization of the state by extending term lone and working capital term loans to green filed ventures. Corporation also extends loans to established industrial concerns for the modernization and expansion. Since inception, the corporation has given loans to around 41000 units aggregating to Rs. 3070.00 cores. (Out of this, around 25688 units have totally repaid their loans to the corporation). Thus total outstanding of the Corporation is approx Rs. 916.87cr.

Although the general recession has also hit industrial sector of the country, the corporation has been making all-out efforts to enhance the pace of industrial growth by attracting good entrepreneurs and quality investors for setting up their units in the state. For expenditure sanction of term loans to these entrepreneurs, the corporation has delegate the power of registration of loan application to its Regional Managers placed in 19 R.Os. Spread all over U.P. & Uttranchal. Business promotion meetings, chaired by GM/MD and other senior officers of the corporation,, are being organized every month in each regional office to reach industry at its door step. Vigorous efforts are being made for conversion of registration in to quality sanctions by effective transparent appraisal system.

Similarly, the Corporation has ensured the effective monitoring of the disbursement of loans through its follow –up department. This not only helps in checking the delays in disbursement of loans but also in scheduled implementation of the projects, leading to some interest recovery during current financial year as well. For effective monitoring from the stage of registration to the disbursement of loan, weekly progress is being reviewed.

In present economic scenario where industrial sector is hit by recession and various industrial units in small scale sector are finding it difficult to survive for several reasons, leading to increase in NPAs, it was necessary for the corporation to review and streamline its existing procedure for recovery of dues to ensure effective and close monitoring of all the chronic accounts, particularly NPA accounts.

NOIDA (New Okhla Industrial Development Authority)

Noida, the industrial citadel of Uttar Pradesh was established under the U.P. industrial Area Development Act. In 1976.

It is set-up with a strong industrial base with a comprehensive development of all infrastructure viz.\Residential, Commercial, Institutional, Recreational and public amenities.


GNIDA is developing an area of about 12000 hectares into a modern integrated township and has completed its first phase of development. For the first phase planning has been done for 5000 hectares of land and for a population of 3 lakes in which laying down of infrastructure like roads, drinking water, power, drainage sewerage has been successfully completed.

GNIDA has chartered a master plan till 2021, approved by GNIDA board, which is awaiting clearance from the national capital region planning board. In phase-II during 2002-11, the area will extended to 12,000 hectares for a population of 6.5lakhs. by the time, third phase begins in 2021, the planned area will increase to 2000 hectares to house around 12 lakhs people.

Under the master plan for the year 2021, out of an area of 40,000 hectares, the authority has earmarked 25% for residential usage, 25% for green/ recreational activities,19% for industrial use and 6% for commercial usage.

Major achievements of 2005-06 and proposed targets for year 2006-07

Industrial :

For the year 2005-06 against the target of 280 acres of land, 267.50 acres of has been allotted with probable receiving of 438 cores.
For the year 2006-07 against the target of 83.97 ha. of land there will be receipt of Rs. 89.68 cores.

Commercial :

For the year 2005-06 against the target of 43 acres of land, we have received Rs.4.41 cores till date.
For the year 2006-07 against the target of 37.68 ha. of land there will be receipt of Rs. 284.85 cores.

Institutional :

For the year 2005-06 against the target of 380 acres of land, we have received Rs.73.21 cores till date.
For the year 2006-07 against the target of 52.11 ha. of land there will be receipt of Rs. 78.48 cores.
Residential :

For the year 2005-06 against the target of 885 acres of land, we have received Rs.173.26 cores till date.
For the year 2006-07 against the target of 189.92 ha. of land there will be receipt of Rs. 663.93 cores.
It is, thus, expected that with the help of the above efforts there would be qualitative increase in industrial growth which would ultimately contribute to the strengthening of the economic health of the state.

Externally Aided Projects

The process of development in Uttar Pradesh has not gained the expected momentum mainly due to lack of resources. In a situation like this, externally aided projects are of vital importance towards increasing the state resources for development. Finance from external agencies is an important means, not only to raise urgently need of resources for targeted areas, but also to introduce enhanced level of professionalism and rigour in programmes management.

External aid constitutes an important source for financing sect oral and regional development programmes. Uttar Pradesh receives foreign aid in the shape of additional central assistance, through Govt. of India under bilateral assistance and assistance from multilateral donor agencies such as world bank, ADB, JBIC, OPEC and EEC etc. technical assistance provided by certain countries and organizations like WB, WHO,JICA and USAID for training of personnel, import of equipments for research projects, for project preparation etc. provide important input in conception and implementation of development projects.

Major Advantages of EAPs

In the center- state relation, transfer of funds to state consists of four component viz :
transfer of funds as per finance commission’s recommendation, which are fixed for five years;
central assistance, which is fixed as per Gadgil formula;
small saving lone, which is fixed at 75% of the amount deposited by the state;
additional central assistance, which is fixed for EAPs.
It shows that flexibility exits only in the area of ACA in augmenting the state resources. It may be noted that prior to acceptance of the recommendations of the twelfth finance commission by govt. of India, one major advantage with additional central assistance was that of total amount received, only 70% was to be paid back, rest 30% was grant better performance in EAPs meant more disbursement by the donor, resulting in more ACA to the state . thus the state could take the advantage of having externally aided projects which would augment the State resource for financing its annul plan.

However, from the current financial year, it has been decided by Govt. of India that funds received under EAP would be transferred to the states by the central Govt. on the same terms and condition as that made available by the donor. Thus, while States stand to gain if they receive soft loans like IDA from the world Bank, they stand to lose if they go in for the costlier IBRD loans which carry a higher interest rate and a shorter repayment period.

Annual Plan 2006-2007

During recently held meeting with Yojna Ayog in New Delhi, an outlay of Rs. 1054.85 crore with a reimbursable portion of Rs. 854.00 crore has been earmarked for the state for the year 2006-07 for projects of Irrigation, Road, Agriculture and health etc. a strategy has been prepared by the concerned departments for timely achievement of targets.
