Speaking on the occasion, Rathin Sinha- said, “DCCIA has been working relentlessly to provide guidance and a platform for SMEs, Start Ups as well as Multinational Companies from in and around Pune for any business-related issues.”

H P Srivastava said, “Pune is an important industrial belt for the state and the country and hence DCCIA has been working persistently to solve the problems of not only entrepreneurs but also of other stakeholders who are equally important. Maharashtra can emerge as a primary investment destination only if we design policies that attract entrepreneurs and investors. Keeping this in mind, the Government of Maharashtra has rightly brought the “Maharashtra Industry, Trade and Investment Facilitation Act 2023” in July 23. The Act is of immense help in time bound sanctioning of permissions and licenses, required for setting up a factory, through a single window scheme which is a right step towards ease of doing business. However, the Act has still not been implemented in letter & spirit as the required changes are still under development stage under Maitri Portal' which is the nodal agency for implementation. The need of the hour is get this act implemented without any further delay and the same should be publicised widely.

Devina Rai moderated the program while Vasudev Malu presented the vote of thanks.
