LUCKNOW: Ahead of the defence expo next year, the Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday decided to provide 25 per cent subsidy and 100 per cent stamp duty waiver for setting up defence industry in the state.
The decision was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
"The cabinet has amended the UP Defence, Aerospace Unit and Employment Promotion Policy-2018 with provision of providing 25 per cent subsidy and 100 per cent stamp duty waiver for setting up defence industry in the state," Industrial Development Minister Satish Mahana told reporters in the state capital.
Now, the companies that will set up defence industries will be provided all facilities including power, road and fencing of land, the minister added.
