“The scheme will go a long way in ushering in an era of socio-economic development of the region and for catering to the aspirations of people and it will also provide impetus to micro, small, medium and larger enterprises,” she added.

Patel informed that an industrial land bank has been established and 6,000 acres of land acquired. “Under this new industrial policy, 4.50 lakh unemployed youth would be provided employment,” the Minister said.
