Biotechnology Policy

Chhattisgarh along with being one of the largest states of India is also one of the richest in terms of mineral resources and biospheres in India, and is endowed with about twentytwo varied forest types. These have naturally occurring varieties of herbs and shrubs, with proven medicinal and aromatic ingredients. We have over thousands of square kilometres of virgin forest that are yet to be scientifically surveyed. A wealth of varieties of indigenous rice as a source of unexplored gene pool occurs naturally. Established traditional knowledge systems of self- healing and nutrition that are based on knowledge of the Bio-wealth, is a unique feature of various communities of Chhattisgarh. The State provides good governance and excellent infrastructure for industries in biotechnology.


Excise Policy 2018-19

Under entry No. 51 of list II of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India, States are empowered to levy duties on the following goods manufactured or produced in the States: Alcoholic liquors for human consumption. 2. Opium, Indian hemp and other narcotic drugs and narcotics. Although consumption of alcoholic drinks has been prevalent since time immemorial, excessive consumption carries with it the danger of negative social and physiological impacts. Since prohibition alone cannot decimate the demand or need for consumption of alcoholic drinks and beverages, the State has to ensure supply of quality beverages from legitimate sources to meet this demand.

Environment Policy

Chhattisgarh lays emphasis on developing the State's rich mineral, forest and other natural resources on a sustainable basis to achieve the targets of rapid economic and social growth. Sustainable development is the delicate balance between the demands of economic development and the need for protection of the environment combining elements of economic efficiency along with intergenerational and social equity. The concept of sustainable development is particularly applicable in Chhattisgarh where in

  • 80% of the State's population is dependent on agriculture for livelihood.
  • More than 44% of the State's geographical area is under forest cover.
  • The State's industrial foundation is based on minerals and mining.
  • A very large proportion of the population belongs to scheduled tribes and scheduled castes. Given the need to balance the benefits of development with the need to maintain and improve the environment, the State has prepared its Environmental Policy that is aimed at
  • Ensuring sustainable development with an emphasis on social and intergenerational equity
  • Enhancing environmental performance as a means of competitive advantage for the State.
  • Improving the quality of life of citizens.


Solar Energy Policy 2012-2017

A clear vision of India is developing to reduce its dependence on conventional energy sources and become a leader in renewable energy with increased global awareness on environmental concerns and energy security. The promotion of renewable energy sources and technologies is one of the crucial strategies to bridge the demand — supply gap in the power sector in an environmentally sustainable manner as well as to pave the way for a strategic shift from future import dependence on fossil fuels from the energy security angle.


Industrial Policy 2019-24

To attain the dream of (Creating a New Chhattisgarh), the State is poised to use its own internal potential & natural resources to the fullest by aligning and synergizing with the innovative techniques of national & multinational corporate giants to make Chhattisgarh State a self-reliant and a consistently progressing economy to uplift the living standards and to bring happiness in the lives of the common people of the State. To enhance necessary infrastructure in identified industrially backward development blocks & to provide maximum incentives/facilities to develop the industrial ecosystem so as togenerate more job opportunities over there.


Information Technology and ITES Policy

Chhattisgarh State with wide-ranging socio-economic disparities is now witnessing the ongoing Information Technology (IT) revolution. The Government of Chhattisgarh visions 'Vikas mool mantra, Aadhar loktantra' ('Driving Development through Democratic Governance') and believes Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a particularly important medium for the state in reaching out and improving livelihoods specially for its overwhelming SC / ST population across 44% forest area, which had largely remained untouched by modern development.

The purpose of this policy document is to set expectations for quality and excellence in state government services to citizens, state transactions with citizens and businesses, and internal state governmental operations / functions through the strategic deployment of information technologies, and a concentrated focus on the opportunities of the information and communication technologies.


Innovation & Entrepreneurship Development Policy 2015

India, with a strong GDP growth forecast in coming years and a population of 1.2 billion, is one of the best markets for growth and investments. Further, it is also the fastest growing and 3rd largest Start-Up Ecosystem globally (NASSCOM Start-up Report 2014) with more than 3100 startups (2014), and set to increase to 11,500 by 2020. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), as of April 2015, the Indian economy is nominally worth US$2.306 trillion; it is the 7th largest economy by market exchange rates, and at US$7.996 trillion, is the third-largest by purchasing power parity. India, poised to surpass USD 3 trillion mark in less than five years, is the third largest smartphone market in the world after China and the U.S.


Mineral Policy-2007

The State of Chhattisgarh was carved out of erstwhile Madhya Pradesh to provide deference to its distinctive historical, social background and natural resources. It is paradoxical that the State with richest natural endowments is amongst poor in the country. The basic purpose of its formation would be defeated if the natural resources are not used due to constraints of stringent forest laws and environment problems. To ease these strains and to provide accessibility in the benefit of natural resources utilization to the deprived class of the region, it has become imperative to evolve a suitable mineral policy for the nascent State.


Women Empowerment Policy

The Government of Chhattisgarh is firmly committed to capitalise on its 'new State advantage'. The State has taken a conscious decision to do away with past legacies and to adopt a fresh approach to economic and social development. This Women Empowerment Policy is not a modification of any earlier policy, but is based on the state's specific geographical, social and cultural characteristics. This policy seeks to address the unique situation and issues facing women in Chhattisgarh across urban, periurban, rural and tribal areas. It is based on a comprehensive analysis of the best practices of other Indian states and countries from where positive elements have been culled out and suitably incorporated keeping in view the State's unique features. The commitment of the State towards empowerment of women is evident from the fact that the Government has already set up a high level committee under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister to define and review the achievable and measurable goals for the newly formed State.
