Why Invest in Chhattisgarh?

Chhattisgarh

Chhattisgarh is an emerging State with unmatched potential and limitless opportunities. The State accounts for 15% of the total steel produced in the Country. It has one of the highest mineral reserves in the Country. With 44% of the State’s land under forests, Chhattisgarh accounts for 12% of India’s forests. Identified as one of the richest biodiversity habitats, the State of Chhattisgarh has some of the most dense forests in India with a rich wildlife and over 200 non-timber forest products, which offer a tremendous potential for value addition.

Though strong core sector industries such as iron, steel, cement, and thermal power have traditionally imparted a high growth thrust, the State has identified Food Processing Sector as a sunrise sector for upcoming infrastructure development. Business friendly policies and a proactive administration make Chhattisgarh a preferred investment destination.
