Agra: In order to safeguard the relations with 25 million Indian diasporas, Uttar Pradesh government will soon make policies and schemes for them, state minister Balwant Singh Ramoowalia said on Tuesday.

On the penultimate day of the maiden ‘UP Pravasi Diwas’ underway here, the minister, who was in charge of the event said, “immediate and serious engagement with the NRIs was imperative to bring in investment, create business opportunities and guide India’s workforce.”

On initiatives of the Uttar Pradesh government, Sanjiv Sharan, principal secretary in the NRI department, talked about the newly formed department that would focus on solving grievances of NRIs and helping investors in the state.

A coffee table book was also being conceptualised for promoting the policies and familiarising NRIs with progress and opportunities in the state, he added.

Saran said the department would launch a new portal for NRIs to facilitate and resolve their issues.

FICCI secretary general A Didar Singh spoke about the importance of connecting the Indian diaspora both emotionally and through technology.
“Technology like creating forums for solving issues related to business establishments and showcasing the ease of doing business in the state would not only encourage investment opportunities but also connect the NRIs back to their roots,” he said.

Congratulating the Uttar Pradesh government for the great initiative of engaging NRIs with their roots, Charu Mathur, CEO of Overseas Indian Facilitation Centre at the ministry of overseas Indian affairs, focused on the joint responsibly of both state and the Centre to give a pleasant experience to the NRIs in their business ventures in India.(IANS)
