    Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Government has transferred over 160 kanals land to Patanjali at Vijaypur in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.

    “Over 160 kanals of land was yesterday allotted to Patanjali to set up its unit in the state,” sources here today said.

    Sources said that the land transfer case was pending at civil secretariat for the last two months following some legal formalities.

    In view of rise in the sale of Patanjali products in recent years in the state of Jammu and Kashmir the land has been allotted by the Ministry of Commerce and Industries. A section of the media had reported that over 160 kanal land was transferred to the group in Vijaypur in Samba district. It had also reported that proposal was pending for quite some time.

    “I haven’t seen any file of the Patanjali group. Any group  intending to set up plant has to first submit Detailed Project Report (DPR). The Pitanjali group has not submitted it,” commissioner/secretary industries  and commerce Shailendra Kumar was quoted by local newspaper.
