Kolkata: West Bengal has secured investment commitments to the tune of at least Rs. 250,104 crore, Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee said on Saturday.

Speaking at the concluding day of the Bengal Global Business Summit, Mamata said, discussions were on for further investments in the State. Investment break-ups in many ways that are manufacturing – Rs 1,15,000 cr; power – Rs 8462 cr; animal research- Rs 45 cr. Nearly ₹ 116,000 crore of proposals were received in the manufacturing sector only. Another ₹ 8650 crore worth was received in the IT& Telecom sector.

Mamata Also said that everyone pleasantly surprised at the growth of Bengal, the infrastructural growth. Despite paying debts, we have doubled revenue collection during the last 4-1/2 years. Projects worth Rs 2, 50,104 cr in our hand, more investments on the way. With so many delegates from Asian and European countries, and from India supports us.

Mamata added that it’s like between parents (Centre) & children (States). If their relationship is good, everything is good. I think politics and development are independent of each other. We must separate the two. We’ll support GST because of our commitment. We’ll support Land Bill if our reservations & observations are considered. Mamata claim that she will support federalism. This year’s summit was better than last year’s, and next year’s would be better still. BGBS 2016 has been the best business conclave in India.
