Kochi: Welcoming the new industrial policy of Kerala Government, Dr. S Sajikumar, Chairman, CII Kerala State and Managing Director of Dhathri Ayurveda Pvt. Ltd. said that the “Industry in Kerala is undergoing a slew of positive changes, including Ease of Doing business, and setting up of private industrial parks which will certainly attract new investors to the State."
CII is of the opinion that Kerala has been witnessing a silent revolution in the industrial sector with lot of far-sighted initiatives and polices, including the ordinance against ‘Nokku Kooli’, being adopted to make it one of the most industry-friendly states in the country. The Government’s decision to allow private industrial parks in Public-Private Partnership Model (PPP Model) will greatly accelerate the industrial climate of Kerala. The Government’s policies, which include Single Window Clearance and new measures for Ease of Doing Business, will make Kerala an investment-friendly destination in the near future.
The suggestion to form an ‘Empowered committee’ which will ensure transparency in the system, is highly appreciated. "The decision to reduce 100 per cent stamp duty for multipurpose industrial zones will help industries to take up space and in turn create more employment,” said Sajikumar.
The new policy will give thrust to sectors like Agro food processing, Electronics, Ayurveda and other export-oriented products which will boost industries and Kerala Economy as a whole.
