Uttar Pradesh Gets Investment Friendly

Uttar Pradesh Pravasi Diwas:

Uttar Pradesh PravasiDiwas (UPPD) is Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav’s brainchild. He came up with this event to cement the bonds between the state and Non-Resident Indians and Persons of Indian Origin. The annual event started in 2015 aims to deepen the commercial engagement with NRIs from Uttar Pradesh by way of increased investment and trade flows into the state. Akhilesh Yadav also set up an NRI Department on 18th July 2014 to keep records and information on people granted immigration in the state and to facilitate single window processes.

Nivesh Mitra:

Nivesh Mitra is an initiative by Akhilesh Yadav, launched for infrastructure and industrial development in Uttar Pradesh. It is a web-based online facility for entrepreneurs who wish to establish their enterprise in the state. Its nodal agency is Udyog Bandhu and has been envisaged as a simple, user-friendly, entrepreneur-centric web app that allows existing and prospective investors to get online clearances or NOCs. Nivesh Mitra has digitized the entire process and further boosted the start-up sector in Uttar Pradesh, making it a preferred destination.

Film Policy:

Akhilesh Yadav has announced a new film policy to showcase the glorious cultural, mythological and historical heritage and traditions of Uttar Pradesh, both nationally and internationally. The facilities provided by the state government have made it extremely conducive for directors to shoot in the state. This will lead to a boost in tourism, economy, employment and popularity of Uttar Pradesh. Film Bandhu is the nodal agency set up by Akhilesh Yadav to take an overview of this sector. The "Film Development Fund" has been set up for financing films. The fund will be utilised for sanctioning subsidies to regional and Hindi films produced in the state, providing scholarships to the students making their career in film making, ensuring development of cinematic talent, arranging film equipment, setting up of film training institutes, organising film festivals, offering financial assistance on film processing in the state itself and financing for film awards.
