Goa State Policies

Industrial Policy of Goa

The selective approach to new industrial approval is the salient feature of the industrial policy of the state. The setting up of large and medium industries policy requires approval of high power coordination committee headed by the chief minister. The committee examines the type of unit proposed to be set up from the view point of environment and the existing infrastructure. This simplifies the process considerably and entrepreneurs need not pursue their goals with several departments.

The objective of new industrial policy of the government of Goa is to encourage setting up of industries which are non polluting and employment oriented. With the liberalization of economy, the new thrust areas in industrial growth are electronics and pharmaceuticals. In order to encourage setting up electronics industries, Goa state government has set up an electronic city in Verma Indl. estate. Another growth centre is proposed in Pernem in North Goa. Agrobased, food processing including fisheries, electronics, software development, telecommunication, bio technology, light engineering goods, wood carving, automotive parts etc. and industries having scope or backward and forward linkages and ancillarisation are encouraged. More thrust is given for tourism based industries and service industries. Pisciculture, floriculture, Tissue culture, Mushroom cultivation and processing etc. are also being encouraged in Goa state.
