The backward region of Bundelkhand is all set to get a big boost of development. Ahead of the Global Investors Summit, the district of Jhansi saw 146 proposals worth over Rs 1 lakh crore at the District Investors Summit organised on Wednesday. MoUs worth over Rs 65000 crore were signed for investment across various sectors.
It may be recalled that the UP government, led by Yogi Adityanath, is organising the Global Investors Summit from 10 to 12 February 2023. The summit aims at bringing investment of over Rs 10 lakh crore in the state. These district investor summits are being organised as a run up to the gala event at Lucknow.
Jhansi became the biggest investment hub on Wednesday amongst all the districts so far. More than 146 proposals worth Rs 1,11,610.90 crore have been received by the government, out of which MoUs have been signed for investment of about Rs 65,000 crores. Among these, the biggest MoU has been signed for the energy sector worth Rs 50,000 crores.
The Union Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Bhanu Pratap Singh Verma was present at the summit. He shared the schemes of both the UP and the central government for the investors. Apart from energy, proposals and MoUs were also seen in tourism, housing, defence and MSME sectors. He added that such big investments will not change the industrial face of the region, but will also change the economic conditions of the people.
Jhansi‘s Chief Development Officer Junaid Ahmed said that these investments will be creating massive employment opportunities, giving jobs to about 58,000 people.
