Madhya Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation Limited (MPSIDC) is the nodal agency for industrial growth in the state. It is the central point to coordinate, activate and ensure implementation of mega infrastructure projects. MPSIDC has identified 19 industrial growth centres to attract medium and large industries and non-resident Indians (NRls) to the state, and provide various facilities and concessions to them.

To ensure a balanced and sustainable growth of industry across the state, MPSIDC established seven growth centres at Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Indore, Rewa and Ujjain. These growth centres are known as Madhya Pradesh Audyogik Kendra Vikas Nigam Limited (AKVN).

The state has excellent infrastructure, with 19 industrial development parks, 129 industrial areas, six food parks, eight integrated development centres, three dry parks, one stone park, one IT park, one SEZ and an apparel park at Indore. A gems and jewellery park is being developed in Indore to promote the diamond industry in the state.

The following are some of the major initiatives taken by the government to promote Madhya Pradesh as an investment destination:

  • For a structured growth, the government has divided the state into six clusters - Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Gwalior, Rewa and Sagar.
  • MPSIDC has undertaken a US$ 13.3 million project to bring water from Narmada River to Dewas under the BOT scheme. The project would likely resolve the water problems of 460 industries and facilitate further industrialisation of the Dewas industrial belt.
  • The state is developing two SEZs at Hargarh and Umariya- Dungariya. Once operational, the Hargarh SEZ will provide infrastructure support to mineral-based industries, while Umariya-Dungariya will cater to the agriculture and food processing industries.
  • The state government has announced plans to upgrade existing apparel clusters at Indore and Jabalpur. The state government has established a textile park in Chhindwara.

  • Indore has been identified for infrastructure development under the Textiles Centre Infrastructure Development Scheme (TCIDS). Indore is a cluster of the readymade garments industry with over 1,260 garment units.

  • To attract investment into the textile sector, the government has provided an interest subsidy for five years at the rate of five per cent for textile projects and seven per cent for composite textile projects. Furthermore, the government provided 100% assistance in plant and machinery for eight years under Industrial Investment Promotion Assistance Scheme.
