Chhattisgarh

 

Chhattisgarh, a 21st century State, came into being on November 1, 2000. Chhattisgarh is a state in Central India. It borders Madhya Pradesh on the northwest, Maharashtra on the west, Andhra Pradesh on the south, Orissa on the east, Jharkhand on the northeast and Uttar Pradesh on the north.Chhattisgarh is truly a land of opportunities. With all major minerals including diamonds in abundance.There are mega industries in steel, aluminium and cement. The state also contributes substantially to India's human resources. Several hundred students from the state qualify for admissions in prestigious national academic institutions every year.

 

The state has low power generation cost due to pit head power generation. This is attracting many power-intensive industries. Its central location helps easy power transmission and evacuation to any part of country. There has been no labour unrest in either Bhilai or Korba, the power capital, for several decades. Twelve percent of India's forests are in Chhattisgarh, and 44 percents of the state's land is under forests. Identified as one of the richest bio-diversity habitats, the Green State of Chhattisgarh has the densest forests in India, rich wildlife and above all over 200 non-timber forest products, including medicinal, aromatic and dye plants, with tremendous potential for value addition.
