'Micro, small and medium scale industrial units are the soul of Madhya Pradesh’s economy'
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that micro, small and medium scale industrial units are the soul of Madhya Pradesh’s economy. These units create many employment opportunities for the youth along with value addition of agricultural products and other materials at the local level. These units have an important role in boosting the economy.
Entrepreneurs are our development partners. The state government gives top priority to micro, small and medium scale units. We want to spread a network of these units in the state. Every possible effort will be made to remove the difficulties coming in this direction.
Chouhan was addressing 1450 MSME industrial units after transferring subsidy of Rs 400 crore with a single click. Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Minister Shri Omprakash Sakhalecha, Secretary P. Narhari and other officials were present in the programme held at the Chief Minister’s residence office building Samatva.
Entrepreneurs from all the districts of the state, representatives of industry organizations participated virtually in the programme. The Chief Minister also interacted virtually with representatives of industry organizations and entrepreneurs. Chief Minister said that India’s economy is progressing under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Activities are being carried out by developing a road map for Atmanirbhar Madhya Pradesh, in line with the Prime Minister’s resolve to build an Atmanirbhar Bharat. Madhya Pradesh is the fastest growing economy of India. The GSDP of the state has become 13 lakh crore. But the capita income is Rs one lakh 40 thousand. We have also increased our irrigation capacity to a great extent.
Agriculture is the backbone of our economy. A large number of employment opportunities are being created for the youth by skill upgradation in value addition of agricultural products. Chouhan said that the state government is providing all possible cooperation to develop successful entrepreneurs in Madhya Pradesh. Cluster approach has an important role in removing the difficulties of entrepreneurs.
The state government is also making efforts in the direction of providing built infrastructure to small industries. The subsidy given to the entrepreneurs should be made available to them without any difficulty and the subsidy has been given only with the aim of zeroing down the possibilities of transactions taking place in it. Chief Minister Chouhan said that under the Mukhyamantri Yuva Kaushal Kamai Yojana, a stipend of Rs. 8 thousand will be given to the youth per month. Upgradation of skills by learning work will increase the chances of youth getting employment.

Dr. Rajeev Aggarwal said that due to the implementation of MSME policy and startup policy in the state, entrepreneurs from other states are coming to Madhya Pradesh to set up their units. Anju Bhadoria requested to set up a special incentive system for women entrepreneurs Navneet Singhania said that only with the cooperation and encouragement of the officers, he has been able to establish and run the industrial unit successfully.
Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Minister Omprakash Sakhlecha said that under the leadership of Chief Minister, industrial units have developed rapidly in the state. More than 70 clusters have been formed in the state. As a result of the efforts of CM, the Government of India has approved 13 clusters.
Efforts are being made to provide guidance to the youth in each district. Transfer of subsidy has made it easier for entrepreneurs to operate. Releasing the amount of subsidy in the last days of the financial year is like Sanjeevani for the entrepreneurs.
