Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who is leading a high-level delegation to the UK to woo investors, on Monday invited Indian diaspora to come and invest in Haryana, and be a part of the growth story of the state.
Interacting with Indian diaspora in Glasgow, the Chief Minister lauded the role played by them in UK in building India’s positive image overseas, and listed a number of measures taken by his government to make Haryana the place to invest in.
The participants in the interaction included business persons, doctors, engineers and IT professionals. The Consul General of India in Edinburgh, Anju Ranjan, was also present on the occasion.
Asking those present to come and invest in Haryana, Mr Khattar said committed to facilitating industry, the state government had taken concrete measures to further ease the ease-of-doing business, create infrastructure conducive to the growth of industry, and provide logistics and infrastructural support.
Listing some of the steps taken to boost industry, he said single-roof system had been implemented under which all necessary clearances for setting up industrial units were provided under one roof within a maximum of 45 days. Beyond 45 days, all clearances are deemed to have been cleared.
Besides, the government has abolished Inspector Raj and implemented the system of self-certification. For setting up any Rs 5,000-crore project, demand-based facilities are being provided. As a result of the new incentives-laced industrial policy and close proximity the state enjoyed to the international airport in New Delhi, Haryana has emerged as a preferred destination for entrepreneurs, he added.
