Zee Business is the first Business Channel to Interview Narendra Modi

MUMBAI: Zee Business, India's first and only hindi business news channel will be telecasting the first ever interview of Gujarat CM Mr.Narendra Modi given to any business News Channel.

With "Vibrant Gujarat's Investor's Summit" just round the corner the Gujarat CM asserted that he wants to make Gujarat the leader in having SEZs. He told Zee Business in an exclusive interview that apart from Reliance Petrolium, Essar Steel, Essar Oil, Adani Group and Zydus Cadila, many more world-renowned companies have been planning to invest in the state. He said " 33 Special Economic Zones have already got approval from the central govt."


When asked the reason on the less number of automobile companies in the state he said that the state govt. is also planning to have Special Economic Zone for the automobile industry, which is worth $ 3 trillion worldwide. Rajkot is proposed as a place to establish he automobile SEZ. He further adds " As Rajkot provides all the auto parts to the big automobile companies, it will be advantageous to have an automobile SEZ here. We also have the advantage of a port nearby." A delegation of Japan Chamber of Commerce visited the state along with the Japanese ambassador and he was very optimistic about the proposed SEZ set up.


Mr. Modi is looking forward to IT industry that has so far been the base in states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka etc. but now Gujarat will also boom in this sector. The government has signed MOU worth Rs. 11000 Crore. With various companies like Satyam, TCS, Infosys etc. there are going to be 4 IT parks from the DLF, Rahejas, and Iscon very soon.

The most troublesome question was of Octroi in seven parts of the states, which was the reason of strong demonstrations in the state against it. The govt. has promised its withdrawal as VAT was there. Mr.Modi said "We want to withdraw octroi but we are finding some alternative way to settle the issue."


Mr.Modi also disclosed his long cherished dream of having the tallest building of the country in Gujarat.

He also mentioned that the Jyotirgram Yojana which would provide 24 hrs electricity to 18000 villages of the state. The expenses are going to be as big as Rs.1200 Cr. to make this scheme operational.

In the "Vibrant Gujrat Investors Summit" Gujarat is expected to sign some 1,75,000 MOUs.
