West Bengal woos private investors for setting up tourism projects

 

West Bengal government is seeking investment in tourism projects of around Rs 4,000 crore with assured availability of land. “There is no problem of land acquisition as the government has already allotted land to these projects. We want businessmen to come to the state and invest without any fear”, Amit Mitra, Minister for Finance, Government of West Bengal said recently.

Mitra said he had one-to-one interaction with a total of 35-40 serious investors in the hotel infrastructure business over two days and “many were attracted by projects proposed by us.”

“We have earmarked land at Sunderbans, Digha and many other places for setting up budget and star hotels and these projects are bankable, commercial projects in the PPP mode”, Mitra said
