India’s private sector behemoth Reliance Industries has sought land
and tax benefits to expand its retail business and promote the
rural ‘haat’ market of Jharkhand.

‘Reliance in its letter to the Jharkhand government has sought land
and tax benefits to expand its business and promote the ‘rural haat’
market. The letter has been forwarded to the concerned departments,’
an official of the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) told IANS.

‘The concerned departments will look into the demand of Reliance and
the interest of the state. The letter has been forwarded to the
agriculture, land and revenue, and finance departments through the
chief secretary,’ he said.

‘If the state government provides land and tax benefits to the
company, Reliance will develop the ‘haat’ market of the state and
open collection centres in different parts of the state,’ the letter
states, according to the official.

The company has already made its entry in the retail market here
with the launch of Reliance Fresh shops to sell mainly fruits and
vegetables.

It has opened six retail outlets. Vegetable vendors are, however, up
in arms against the outlets, as they have affected their business.

‘The Reliance proposal will be considered only after the different
departments give their comments. The state government will also
consider the interest of the people of the state and promotion of
state market,’ said the official.
