It is nice to spread development over a wide areaThe Government of India and the various State Governments are now thinking of spreading development over a wide area. This has actually been done in industries like sugar, cement, and steel, where the manufacturing plants would be situated in remote places, and the residential townships would have all the basic amenities that one can always expect.
We should now have more of such arrangements. If the organizations relocate to remote areas, the private managements should have housing colonies for their employees and schools where the children can have access to a good education. We need a fairly good balance in such places, as these places are generally at least fifty kilometers from the nearest towns. Let us evolve new such models of development.
