In Uttar Pradesh’s first Investors Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched Nivesh Mitra, a digital platform that will enable investors to apply for project clearances online. With the launch of the single-window system, Yogi Adityanath’s Uttar Pradesh has become the first state where projects can be cleared digitally, without any human interface.
Anup Chandra Pandey, infrastructure and industrial development commissioner said, “Nivesh Mitra will now allow investors to apply for project clearances online. This will be a single-window system with absolutely no human interface. We have brought 20 departments under its ambit and application for 70 clearances can be made through this portal. These will be done in a time-bound manner and will be monitored at the highest levels, including the CM’s office.”
Yogi Adityanath has been working hard to secure investments and boosting the ease of business in the state. Under his tenure as Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh has become the 7th most favorable state for investment.
During the course of this investors summit, his government signed MoUs worth Rs. 4.28 lakh crores and business stalwarts such as Ambani and Adani have promised investments worth thousands and thousands of crores.
The state government is also planning to fill the vacancies in its police department and teaching staff which is expected to generate further employment for its youth. The Uttar Pradesh Police’s heavy crackdown on criminals is directed towards creating an environment where businessmen feel safe to invest in the state. The Saffron clad Chief Minister has vowed to create 40 lakh jobs in the next 3 years.
With Nivesh Mitra and the Investors Summit, Uttar Pradesh may well be on its way towards removing its ‘Bimaru’ tag and heralding a new era of prosperity for its citizenry.
