In line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ campaign, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Tuesday said that her government will extend all help to create a conducive atmosphere to bring in investments and set up industries in the state.
“Make in India has become a big buzz word today. Every state is competing with each other to bring investments in because we have recognised the fact that if there are investments, the state will grow, employability will increase and there will be all round prosperity despite whatever else we are doing,” said Raje while speaking at an investors meet organised by the Rajasthan government in association with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in Mumbai.
The event is part of a series of domestic and international roadshows, which were earlier held in Germany, Japan, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata.
Raje said policy reforms such as the introduction of the Industrial Disputes Act 1947, The Factories Act, The Contract Labour Regulation Abolition Act has given Rajasthan a competitive edge over other states. Raje also invited investors to the Resurgent Rajasthan Partnership Summit 2015, to be held in Jaipur on November 19-20 this year. The state government expects a significant surge in investor interest and definite commitments to invest through this summit.
“In the policy formulation, simplification area which is basically ease of doing busniess, we have looked at 86 amendments. Out of these amendments we have managed to carry out 64 in time and 14 more will be completed in the next one month. So we are working really hard on it,” said Raje.
The Rajasthan government, according to Raje is also looking at setting up model schools and medical colleges and hospitals in the state based on public private partnerships (PPP) model. “In the PPP model, land, building and teachers will be provided by the government and the business of teaching and running the school will be done by companies,” said Raje.
