Rs 5,522 cr to be invested in Bangla, over 1 lakh to get jobs
Over the next two years, an amount of Rs 5,522 crore would be invested in Bangla, leading to the creation of more than one lakh direct and indirect jobs.
This was stated by the State Finance Minister, Dr Amit Mitra, during an address at a session organised by the CII.
He said that despite demonetisation and the hurried implementation of the GST, which were two massive blunders of the BJP-led Central Government, Bangla has been doing comparatively better under the leadership of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee,.
While the GDP growth rate of the country has come down to as low as 5 per cent, the GSDP growth rate of Bangla has touched 12.58 per cent. Then, in Ease of Doing Business (EODB), Bangla stands at the second position among the states.
