A move to woo NRIs! UP govt launches exclusive website to attract NRI investment in state
The exclusive website aims to be a single window gateway for the NRIs native to UP and now settled overseas, an official told IANS.
Investment apart, the website, officials said would also encourage the emotional bonding of NRIs with their mother land, ensure the general welfare of NRIs and in case of emergencies monitor special problems faced by them and coordinate with the Government of India.
The NRI department would also offer to help in the coordination of technical, managerial and financial resources of the NRIs from UP.
A 24x7 call centre (Migrant Resource Centre) where NRIs can log complaints will be established and the UP government is also planning to felicitate outstanding performers from among the NRIs as per their approach and investment for the state.
Government officials said that the state would also celebrate "UP NRI Day" every year, beginning Jan 17 next year. Madhukar Jaitley, advisor to the NRI department told IANS that the website was "by far the most serious and well meaning effort by the state government to bond with the NRIs".
