Uttarakhand

 

Uttarakhand is the twenty-seventh state of the country. The state was created on 9th November 2000. The total population of the state according to the 2001 census is 84.89 lakh. The population density is 159 (per square kilometer). It is surrounded by China and Nepal on its international boundary. On the domestic boundary, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Nainital surround Uttarakhand.

 

In recent years, Uttarakhand has emerged as one of the most attractive industrial destinations in India.The government is encouraging private participation in all industrial activities and as a result big players such as HLL and Dabur have set up units in the state.The New Industrial Policy announced in 2003 by the state government puts in place the regulatory framework for Uttarakhand's industrialisation. The New Industrial Policy indicates that private resources may be tapped while promoting integrated Industrial Estates in Uttarakhand.
