Short title and commencement. - (1) This Act may be called the Uttar Pradesh Industrial Area Development (Removal of Doubts and Validation) Act, 1991.

Object & Reasons6
|Statement of Objects and Reasons. - Clause (d) of Section 2 of the Uttar Pradesh Industrial Area Development Act, 1976 defines the expression 'industrial development area' to mean an area declared as such by the State Government by notification. Section 3 of the said Act provides for the constitution of an authority for an industrial development area. In exercise of the powers thereunder the Sataharia Industrial Development Authority, Gorakhpur Industrial Development Authority and the Greater New Okhala Industrial Development Authority were constituted by the State Government on November 30,1989, November 30, 1989 and January 28, 1991 respectively. The notification constituting the Greater New Okhala Development Authority was challenged in a writ petition filed in the Allahabad High Court on the ground that the said clause (d) is merely a definition clause and not a substantive provision, as such, the Government has no power to declare an industrial development area thereunder. Besides, the said clause (d) of Section 2 is not mentioned in the notification constituting the industrial development area. It was apprehended that if the notification is declared invalid by the Allahabad High Court, all the proceedings with respect to the constitution of Greater New Okhla Industrial Development Authority would be in jeopardy and the planned industrial development of the State would be adversely affected. In order to avoid this situation, it was considered necessary to validate the notifications of the said Industrial Development Authorities and to clarify that the said clause (d) is a substantive provision by an enactment. 2. Since the State Legislature was not in session and immediate legislative action in the matter was necessary, the Uttar Pradesh Industrial Area Development (Removal of Doubts and Validation) Ordinance, 1991 (U. P. Ordinance No. 33 of 1991) was promulgated by the Governor on July 19, 1991. 3. This Bill is introduced to replace the aforesaid Ordinance.|
