The Rajasthan government inked contracts for investments in the state totalling Rs 1.36 lakh crore on Monday. The investment was made as part of the Invest Rajasthan event that took place in October of last year.
At the residence of the Chief Minister, agreements for 26 projects in the industrial, energy, tourist, and other sectors were signed. According to a release, these initiatives being established in several state districts would provide work for close to 17,000 individuals.
The state government’s measures, according to CM Ashok Gehlot, have made it easier for businesses to start up in the state. “The condition of law and order, road infrastructure, electricity etc is quite good in the state. Due to the public welfare policies of the state government, there is no situation of labour unrest in the state,” Gehlot said.
