Aerocity in Jaipur, Easy Land Allotment Rules for Renewable Energy Sector   

Rajasthan State Cabinet chaired by the Chief Minister Shri Bhajanlal Sharma gave node to several important decisions for development of infrastructure in aviation and energy sectors. The Cabinet proposed amendments in certain state government policies and rules including the decision to abolish the Gandhi Vatika Trust, an agency authorised to manage the Mahatma Gandhi Museum at Jaipur. 

Deputy Chief Minister and Higher Education Minister Dr. Premchand Bairwa, Industries and Commerce Minister Colonel Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shri Jogaram Patel briefed the media about the decisions taken by the Cabinet. Dr. Bairwa told that the Cabinet approved the proposals to name three government colleges in Churu, Barmer and Bikaner districts in the names of donors, who donated the buildings to these newly established institutes of learning. As per the decision, government colleges would be named as Smt. Mohani Devi Chachan Government College, Sahwa, Churu; Shanti Devi Udayraj Gandhi Government College, Dhorimanna, Barmer; and Government Sadu Devi Parakh GIrls' College, Sridungargarh, Bikaner.

Colonel Rathore stated that the Cabinet members deliberated on development of infrastructure projects in detail. The state government was continuously working to make Rajasthan self-reliant in power generation sector. To achieve this aim the state government had already signed MoUs worth Rs. 2.25 crore in the energy sector. Moving ahead in this direction, the cabinet further approved proposal for amending the Renewable Energy Policy, 2023 and Rajasthan Land Revenue (Allotment for Renewable Energy Projects) Rules, 2007 making them relevant to the present day requirements, he added. As per the proposals, for establishing solar power generation plants lands could now be allotted at 7.5 percent of the DLC rates. These decisions would result in increased revenue collection as well as creation of jobs, Colonel Rathore said.

He further said that to ease regional air travel connectivity and promote tourism in Rajasthan, the State Cabinet also approved Civil Aviation Policy, 2024. This policy focuses on expansion of training and maintenance facilities for aviation sectors aerospace activities. As per the proposed policy, three new flying schools would be set up in Kishangarh, Jhalawar and Bhilwara alongwith with developing Greenfield Airport in Kota. Also, an Aerocity would be developed in Jaipur. As per this decision, new hotels, restaurants and other related infrastructure projects would be developed near Jaipur airport. Rathore said that several airports in the state would now provide cargo services and old airstrips would also be revamped to make them operational for flying. 

Gandhi Vatika Trust Act to be Repealed

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shri Jogaram Patel stated that a bill would be proposed in the State Assembly to repeal the Gandhi Vatika Trust Jaipur Act, 2023. He said that as per the Act, infinite and undue powers were granted to the nominated Vice Chairperson for sale or disposal of immovable and other properties. Also, there was no provision of removing the Vice Chairperson from the post. This way, this Act was against the public interest. Thus, Patel said, the Cabinet approved the proposal to repeal this Act itself. Also, it was further decided that the operations of Gandhi Vatika museum would continue on the lines of other such museums in the state by the concerned administrative departments.
