Himachal Pradesh

 

Himachal Pradesh came into being on 15th April 1948 as a centrally administrative territory by the integration of 30 princely states. On 1st November 1966, its area was increased by merger of districts of Kangra, Shimla, Kullu, Lahaul-Spiti and some other areas from Punjab and Haryana. On 15th January 1971, Himachal Pradesh attained Statehood and today it has twelve districts.

 

The state's announcement of a new industrial policy in December 2004 has marked a watershed in its efforts to open its economy, moving to the centre stage of national and international business. The State Government is currently bringing about further changes to accelerate the process of administrative and economic reforms and strengthen the in flow of domestic and foreign investment into the state.
