To further facilitate the investors in the process of selection of suitable land, the entire land bank has been categorized into ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ categories based on the Pollution Index and Level of Investment. This categorization helps a prospective investor in selection of an appropriate location for investment based on the specific project. The categorization has been made as follows:

The above categorization of land is available for each land plot under the land bank of the State.

In case, a particular land plot is suitable for setting up Category ‘A’ projects, then the same plot is also suitable for setting up Category ‘B’ & ‘C’ projects. Similarly, if a land plot is suitable for setting up Category ‘B’ projects, then the same land plot is also suitable for setting up Category ‘C’ projects (but not Category ‘A’ projects).
