Maharashtra gets Rs 75,000 crore investment commitments

The Maharashtra state government received investment commitments of over Rs.75,000 crore this fiscal in diverse sectors, including electronics and automobiles, state industries minister Subhash Desai said.
Without sharing comparative figures for the same period last year, he said investment commitments are in diverse sectors, including electronics, auto, auto ancillaries and textiles.
The minister, however, expressed unhappiness over the industry's preference for the region around Pune and said the state wants the investments to be “decentralised“ into other regions.
He said the forthcoming Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, which will create a base at Aurangabad, and the Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur (Mihan) are big opportunities, which will funnel more investments into the state in the future.
Desai said interest in defence and aerospace sectors are also increasing, and mentioned Reliance Industries' announcement to set up its aerospace facility in Nagpur at an investment of over Rs.6,000 crore as a welcome move.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has been aggressive in selling opportunities present in the state and has travelled to countries like China and the United States to scout for investors.
