Pradhan's request came in the backdrop of a Rs 3,150 crore polypropylene project being built by Indian Oil Corporation which is all set to go on stream at Paradip Oil Refinery in February, 2019.
The plant will have a capacity of 7 lakh tonne per annum and offer feedstock to the proposed polymer park.
"The joint venture needs to be ready as soon as possible, which would take care of requirements of investors and work on further infrastructure developments. I, therefore, request you to personally intervene in the matter and instruct the authorities to complete all the formalities for the joint venture formation at the earliest, Pradhan said in a letter addressed to Patnaik on Wednesday.
Pradhan said that at least six investors have applied for land in the proposed plastic park at Paradip.
"If the formalities for the joint venture is not completed then the investments could be affected," the Union minister said adding the Chemical and Fertiliser Ministry has already sanctioned Rs 40 crore as grant-in-aid to the plastic park as assistance for infrastructure development whereas Indian Oil has approved a proposal to infuse Rs 32.72 crore after signing of the joint venture agreement.
Pradhan said that Indian Oil has always associated IDCO in various investors meets and exhibitions organised at different locations. Such events have been held at Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar and other places to woo investors to the proposed plastic park.
