Maharashtra woos industry with 'maha permits', names 'sherpa' to facilitate FDI.
May 15, 2020

Maharashtra is seeking to attract investment from companies by enhancing ease of doing business in the state while deciding against relaxing labour laws, unlike Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, in the wake of the restrictions forced by Covid-19. State industry minister Subhash Desai said on Wednesday that companies investing in Maharashtra will not have to run around to get permissions but will get a single 'mega permission' to invest in the state, adding that the government is also looking to unveil a financial package for industries in the state. The move means industries would no longer have to seek separate clearances for power, water and other requirements.
A state government official said that once given the nod industries can start work while the rest of the clearances would be done in due course. He said this scheme was only for non-polluting industries. Desai said the state would also create a labour bureau which woould compile a list of workers and grade them as per their skills.
