Mangalore SEZ on track, says ONGC

Bangalore: ONGC has acquired 2,300 acres of land for its Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Mangalore, its chairman and managing director RS Sharma said today, asserting that the project was "definitely on track". But acquisition of "this much land" is not sufficient to announce the SEZ as a multi-product one, he said, reports PTI.

Mr Sharma sought to downplay opposition from some local quarters to the land acquisition, saying that for a commercial organisation like ONGC, facing such issues is "common".

"This is one of the SEZs in the country that's progressing extremely well," he said, adding that "investments (for the Mangalore SEZ) are very much on track."

"We have not stopped our total funding plan. Everything is very much on track. It's very much on stream," he said, adding that there is "no question mark" on the project.

Mr Sharma said that ONGC is "fully conscious of the concerns on land acquisition" but added that issues would be resolved through discussions leveraging the company's "reputation and standing."
