Madhya Pradesh government to set up department to address concerns of NRIs
BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh government today decided to set up a department to address the concerns of NRIs.

"We are going to set up a department to address the concerns of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs). This will be MP's 64th department," state Health Minister and government spokesperson Narottam Mishra told reporters after the Cabinet meeting here.

The move to open up the new department comes after some NRIs met Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the United States.

He said that the NRIs told the Chief Minister that their tracts of land for doing business were being encroached upon in MP and they were facing problems in the absence of a quick mechanism in place. 

To a query, Mishra said the recent untimely rains and hailstorm have caused crop damage to the tune of Rs 756 crore, and added that the natural calamity wrecked havoc in 2.60 lakh hectares affecting around 3.07 lakh farmers in the state. 
Madhya Pradesh government is planning to set up a department to address the concerns of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs). This department is the result of the meeting held by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, in the United States some time back to encourage investors to invest in the state.

The Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) of Madhya Pradesh has registered the highest growth among all Indian states in 2013-14. The state's GSDP registered a growth of 11.1 per cent at constant prices, up from 9.9 per cent in 2012-13 and stood at Rs. 2,385.3 billion in 2013-14.

Thank You,
Mahesh Phatak
