The Industrial Policy Resolution 2015 has been formulated to create a conducive environment through an enabling Policy and regulatory framework to drive sustainable industrial growth in the State. The State is committed to simplify the processes and procedures and expedite project approvals and clearances.
The Policy focusses on providing quality industrial infrastructure, creation of a large land bank, financial assistance to the private sector for development of industrial infrastructure and sustainable environmental protection. The emphasis of the policy is to make Odisha “a destination of choice” for industrial enterprises.
The following sectors have been identified as Priority Sectors in the Policy:
Agro and Food Processing, Ancillary and Downstream, Automobiles and Auto-components, Manufacturing in Aviation and Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) facilities, Bio-technology, Gem stone cutting and polishing, Handicraft, Handloom, Coir and Leather products, Information technology, IT enabled service and ESDM units, Petroleum, Chemicals & Petro-chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics and Polymers, Sea food Processing, Textile including Technical Textile & Apparel, Tourism and Hospitality.
Government of Odisha has made amendments to the Industrial Policy Resolution (IPR) 2015, aiming to attract industrial investments in Mega Industries in New Age Sectors to the state.
The New Age Sectors including Electric Vehicles Manufacturing; Green Energy; Electronics and Telecommunication equipment manufacturing; Textile, apparel, wearables and luggage; Pharmaceuticals; White Goods and components; Capital Goods; Aerospace and Defense have shown immense potential to contribute towards the economic and social development of the country. While the conventional industrial sectors will serve as a platform, the New Age Sectors are set to provide an impetus for accelerated industrial growth in the coming years. Besides generating revenue and creating local employment, the Mega Industries will also be instrumental in bringing high-end technologies to the state. They will also assist in generation of ancillary industries around them, thereby having a multiplier effect on employment, revenue and overall growth in the state. Hence enhanced incentives (through Amendment dated 29th November, 2021) are being made available for investment in New Age Sectors.
