In this meeting starting at 11 am, the government can stamp the Common Land Lease Policy. Let us tell you that the discussion about this policy has been going on for a long time and finally the time has come when the cabinet meeting is going to be held for this. This can be a very important decision under the PM Gati Shakti Scheme. The government wants that railway land can be used not only for railway work but also for other works.

Changes can be made in lease fee and duration

Two things are very important in these changes. These include the fees to be fixed for the use of railway land and the duration of the lease. Let us inform that at present, a charge of 5 to 6 percent is charged for this, which can be reduced to 2 to 3 percent. Apart from this, the lease period can also be increased from 25 to 30 years. In this context, some big and important decisions can be taken in the cabinet meeting to be held today.

It will be easy to sell stake in CONCOR

If these changes are approved in the cabinet meeting to be held today, then it will be very easy for the government to sell stake in Concor (Container Corporation of India). After the new changes, investors will also be more attracted towards CONCOR than before. Let us tell you that the government has been trying to sell stake in Concor for a long time, but the investors were not completely satisfied with the charge and duration of the lease. This is the reason that there was a long discussion going on between the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Railways and NITI Aayog regarding the lease fee and duration of railway land.

However, some media reports say that there will be no discussion on the lease fee in this cabinet meeting to be held today, it will not be included in the agenda of the meeting to be held today.
