Noida to be like Bengaluru, more jobs for youth
Uttar Pradesh industries minister Satish Mahana on Thursday said the state government is trying to make Noida like Bangalore by creating job opportunities in abundance for the youth.
“We do not want Noida to become a real estate city. Instead, we want to focus on making it an industrial town. It should become like Bangalore in terms of jobs. We have laid foundation for industrial projects worth Rs 60,000 (verify) across the state this year. Moreover, we have also planned another investors’ summit in December-end,” Mahana said.
The minister in-charge of Gautam Budh Nagar district was in Noida to review all ongoing infrastructure projects.
Directing the Noida authority to focus more on setting up new industries and creating more jobs, Mahana said Vivo, PayTm, Haier and Kent are among the many groups that have set up either new units or augmented their existing units in Noida.
“Noida has been neglected for many years under the previous governments. As a result, Noida — an important part of the national capital region — kept facing criticism for multiple reasons. But since coming to power in March 2017, our government has tried to repair the system and ensure transparency to get people’s work done ethically. We have stopped the system of getting work done through slips,” said Mahana, who reviewed the progress of projects and inspected civic preparedness for the second time after becoming a minister at the Sector 6 administrative office.
