Later, while presiding over the meeting of representatives of Focal Point Associations, Joshi pointed out that physical possession of the plots had been withheld as Government was in the process of formulating a new allotment policy.

Anil Joshi also pointed out that a new policy for allotment of industrial plots/land in different focal points/industrial estates/colonies would be notified by the Government in due course of time.
