Pratisruti Plus – the English fortnightly published from Smart City Bhubaneswar – regularly brings out its annual supplement ‘Odisha Industry’’ during the month of January every year. The supplement has been appreciated globally by our avid readers, industry and all the stake holders as a useful, informative referral book.

The nation is in favour of ‘Make In India’. Digitalisation,Skill development, Infrastructure development. Enactments are being improvised to provide a platform for growth and proliferation of industries. Ease of doing business in India is becoming more conducive for trade and industry day by day. Hopefully, after implementation of GST, India may turn to a manufacturing hub in South-East Asia.

Odisha, the mineral rich state of India is following an aggressive industrial policy and hope to attract fresh investments to the tune of Rs.2.5 lakh crore and generate 10 lakh jobs by 2025 under its ‘Vision 2025.’ The reserve of Coal, Iron Ore, Bauxite and a long coast line with a spread of 480 KMs has so far attracted the mineral based industries to come and invested in the state. Now the state has started focusing on non-metal industries: Plastic and Petro-Chemicals, Textiles and Apparels, Pharma & Biotechnology, Tourism, setting-up of SEZs, Food Processing etc. The list is long backed by a vibrant Industrial Policy Resolution.

The website will vividly cover all the components for modern industry: Land, Skilled Manpower, Capital, Management and Technology, Sourcing of raw materials and Marketing of the finished goods. The portal will broadly deal with present industrial scenario, necessity of large scale Industrialisation for best use of state’s Natural Resources, backward & forward linkages and the MSMEs Planned in Odisha.

The main objective of the portal will be to provide valid information and to motivate the intellectual force to come together and create a congenial environment for industrialization. We provide authentic information on various developmental activities with special reference to Industries. Dissemination of authentic and factual information to public, entrepreneurs, Corporate Houses and all the stakeholders of industry – Large or MSMEs – is our forte.
