The committee comprises Director Industries & Commerce Kashmir, Director Industries & Commerce Jammu and Director SIDCO/SICOP.

The panel, as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), has been directed to submit its recommendations to the government within 15 days.

The committee has been constituted at a time when the Jammu & Kashmir government is pushing for massive industrial development to create employment avenues for the youth.

In the past few years, the J & K government received investment proposals worth Rs 90182 crore which have potential to generate employment for 4, 01,965 youth.

Since 2019-20, an investment worth Rs.5319 crore has been made in J&K.

The Union Territory government has launched the Jammu and Kashmir Industrial Policy 2021-30 to attract new investment, create employment opportunities for youth, develop backward regions and expand existing industrial units—(KNO)
