Role of service sector is important towards making strong Uttarakhand.
Some six proposals were approved in the Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Tuesday at the Secretariat. Chief Secretary Dr. SS Sandhu said that the Cabinet has approved the Service Sector Policy-2023. The service sector is growing rapidly in the state. It is believed that the role of service sector can be very important in making the state a strong Uttarakhand.

These eight major areas are included in this policy-

Skill Development.

Separate policy of tourism and AYUSH
Since tourism and AYUSH have separate policies, these two sectors have not been included in it. This policy has been made till December 2010. In this, a minimum limit has been kept for investment in plains and hilly areas in every service sector. On this basis, investors will be given capital subsidy as incentive or land will be allotted. Capital subsidy has been kept at 25 percent of the total investment. If someone buys land, the price of the land will be decided at the market rate. If the investment limit exceeds the land price then the remaining amount will be given to the investor in the form of capital subsidy. This subsidy will be available only when the residents of the state are provided employment as per the arrangements decided under the policy.
