“Under our new start-up policy, we can motivate more and more youth to launch their own start-ups. Under the new package announced by the Government of India for MSMEs, the MSME Department of the state has taken the first step forward under which a huge online loan fair was organised and the process of giving loan to entrepreneurs has been completed. Similarly, we have carried forward many other works as well,” he said. A new startup policy for agriculture, health, education and other important sectors should be made, so that youth of the state could connect with it, he added.(UNI)
