    • Executive Summary The northern region of India comprises eight states-Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and UT Chandigarh. Though the region is popularly known for its snow capped mountains and for housing the country’s political capital New Delhi; the diverse geographic terrain, resource endowment and varied climatic conditions of these states/UT offer a variety of opportunities to investors. Together these states/UT contribute nearly 26 percent to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Further, the region contributes nearly 32 percent to the country’s agriculture sector, 31percent of the total geographical area and houses nearly 31 percent of the total population. This accompanied with rising income levels and facilitative government measures has further added to the attractiveness of the region. To add to this are the state specific strengths. Illustratively, the low temperatures of high altitude regions, such as Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have immense potential in agro & fruit processing and hydelpower. The rich mineral resources and high solar radiation in Rajasthan offer opportunities in mineral processing and solar power sectors. Well-developed infrastructure and educated professionals have led to the development of IT/ITeS sector in Delhi/National Capital Region (NCR) and Chandigarh. The neighboring Haryana has emerged as a hub for automobiles sector, while the growth of textiles sector in Punjab has been taking place over the last few decades. Availability of large labor force accompanied with other factors has made Uttar Pradesh a manufacturing hub. Further, investment opportunities in these states are neither limited to these sectors nor to their resource endowment. This can be gauged from pro-active government support on developing other sectors as well, especially IT/ITeS. Almost all states offer opportunities in infrastructure and tourism. Several important infrastructure projects have been initiated in the northern region-Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor being one of them. The project is not only expected to attract around USD90-100 billion of investment, ease freight movement and generate employment, but also emerge as a global manufacturing and trading hub. In addition to the central government projects, there are several projects and other initiatives undertaken by the state governments. While, some state governments have recently announced new policies, others are also exploring the possibility of introducing new policies or amending old policies. Further, some state governments are also working towards announcing long term measures (reforms), such as instituting single window clearance mechanism. Still others are proactively holding bilateral discussions with domestic and international investors. A case in point is the Government of Rajasthan that has successfully attracted over USD25 billion of investment from Japanese investors by demarcating a separate Japanese investment zone in Neemrana. Almost all states have demarcated industrial areas to ease investment. All this clearly underlines the vast potential of the northern region. In the past, though the region fell behind the western region in attracting foreign direct investment, pro-active government support in terms of incentives and dialogues with investors, development of infrastructure especially in power and roads and availability of educated professionals and skilled labor is expected to go a long way in attracting long-term investment inflow. This will be facilitated by growing population and income. This report aims at highlighting the advantages and the investment opportunities available in the northern region to potential investors. - 3 -

Positively, the FDI inflow in the northern region recorded a CAGR of almost 18 percent during FY09-FY13. - 7 -
    • Advantage North: Unique combination of complementary strengths The region’s high economic growth rate, abundant resource endowment, availability of skilled labor, expanding infrastructure, government support, rising consumer demand backed by increasing income are some among the many advantages offered by the northern India. Together, these factors make the region a viable investment destination. High economic growth rate As discussed earlier, the northern region recorded higher growth rate than all-India average during FY08-FY12. This has been enabled by high growth recorded by the Services sector, though Agriculture and Industry also recorded higher growth than all-India average. Abundant natural resources The northern region is endowed with abundant natural resources that offer opportunities for the development of several sectors. Illustratively, high solar radiation in Raja sthan has enabled the state to tap the potential of solar power. Capitalizing on this abundant natural resource, Rajasthan has emerged the second leading state (with 442 MW) in installed solar power capacity in India. As of March 2013, Rajasthan and other northern region states accounted for 33.3 percent of installed solar power capacity in India. 2 Likewise, abundant water resources in Jammu &Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and other states, offer immense potential for hydro power generation. With an installed hydro power capacity of 15,467.8 MW, the northern region accounted for 39 percent of India’s total hydro power capacity as of June 2013. 3 Further, the geographical terrain, soil and climatic conditions of hill states, such as Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh is suitable for production of several fruits. Infact, Jammu & Kashmir is the leading producer of almonds and walnuts in India. The state along with Himachal Pradesh leads all other states in the production of apples in the country. This not only highlights the potential for horticulture sector but also lays the foundation for Agro Processing industries engaged in manufacture of pulps, jams, jellies, etc. High agriculture produce in states, such as Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh also supports the growth of agro- processing industries on one hand and power generation on the other, as agri-residual can be used for the same. Infact, production of cotton has laid the basis for textile mills in Punjab and other states. Rajasthan, with more than 75 varieties of minerals, offers potential for development of diverse industries, such as Ceramics, Glass, Cement andSolar Equipment Manufacturing. 4 This abundance of raw materials not only offers opportunities for development of industries within the region, but also offers scope for export both of raw materials and finished goods from the state. 2 Ministry of New and Renewable Energy 3 Central Electricity Authority 4 Bureau of Investment Promotion, Government of Rajasthan - 8 -

The DMIC is a USD90-100 billion project that will cover 1,483 km, of which 52 percent will lie in the northern region. On the other hand, the Eastern DFC will cover 1,839 km, of which nearly 66 percent will lie in the northern region, while 50 percent of the 1,483 km of western DFC will lie in the northern region. Besides, several road projects and metro rail links are underway in the northern region. These projects will boost economic activity through investment inflow and employment generation. Rising consumer demand backed by higher incomes With more than 30 percent of India’s population residing in the northern region, and some of the high income states being part of this area, the potential for market development is high. Six of the eight states have higher monthly per capita consumption expenditure than the average for all India. Source: National Statistical Organisation Availability of educated and skilled workforce With rising population and improving literacy rates, the region is poised to grow further. Of the nine states/UT, six have a literacy rate higher than that of all-India average. Further, higher education institutions have been established in the northern region. The region boasts of seven Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), four Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) and the Indian School of Business (ISB). 0 500 1,000 1,500 Delhi J&K UP Uttarakhand Haryana Punjab Rajasthan Himachal Pradesh Average MPCE (INR) All India average MPCE (INR) Figure: State-wise consumption spending (INR) 2,362 1,552 1,237 1,746 1,916 1,879 1,421 2,095 2,000 2,500 Expanding infrastructure Infrastructure development, be it in power, roads or rail network or communication and technology, enables lowering of cost and time, thereby, improving investment attractiveness. Given this crucial role played by the infrastructure sector, the northern region states have been continually working towards improving the same.

    • Source: Census 2011 Government support Governments —both at the centre and those of states—have been working towards improving investor climate. While, the Central Government has been relaxing FDI limits in different sectors, the state governments have announced new policies or made amendments in old policies to announce fiscal incentives and introduce other investor friendly measures. The government support extends beyond policy measures and fiscal incentives. Almost all state governments have demarcated industrial areas/estates. The Government of Rajasthan has gone a step beyond and developed an international investment zone at Neemrana. Infact, it is the only state in India to have three international investment zones. Besides, single window clearance has been at the forefront of all state governments’ agenda. 86.3 86.4 69.7 79.6 83.8 76.6 76.7 68.7 67.1 74.081.7 81.9 56.3 71.6 76.5 67.9 69.7 55.5 60.4 64.8 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Census 2011 Census 2001 Figure: State-wise literacy rates (percent) - 10 -

    • Glass and Ceramics Rajasthan accounts for approximately 70 percent of bone china and about 40 percent of clay production in India. This has been enabled by significant reserves of gypsum, clay and limestone, found in Alwar, Bikaner, Bhilwara, Ganganagar, Nagaur, Udaipur. State has received investment proposals of more than INR50 billion in the sector across various areas ranging from industrial ceramics, potteryware, tiles tosanitaryware. The sector’s potential can be gauged from the performance of existing companies, such as Saint Gobain, Kajaria and JCPL Ceramics. In its endeavor to support the growth of this sector, State Government, through its various agencies, is developing industrial areas. One such area is Ghiloth where a ceramics and glass zone is coming up. In 2011, the Government of Rajasthan (GoR) announced a special incentive package for Ceramics and Glass sector. Textiles State is the largest producer of polyester viscose yarn and synthetics. Given this advantage, several textile units have been established in the state by ShriramRayons, Ginni International and others. Thus, areas such as Pali, Balotra, Bhilwara and Bhiwadi have emerged as industrial hubs. In order to realize the full potential of the sector, a special customized package has been announced for the sector. Further, 9 parks are being developed at a cost of INR15 billion, while 10 smart centers under Integrated Skill Development Scheme are coming up to train and employ 12,000 people. In addition, a grant of INR4 billion has been announced under Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP). Fiscal incentives under Rajasthan Textile Policy 2013 would also be applicable. Agro processing Rajasthan is India’s largest producer of rapeseed and mustard. Other key produce include coriander, soybean, groundnut and pulses. Thus, in order to tap this potential, Australian Wheat Board, ITC, Reliance and several others have established units in the state. While food processing offers immense opportunities for investment, other potential areas include organic farming, contract farming, cold chains, warehouses, testing and certification facilities. Further, given the scope in research and development and training, an International Horticulture Innovation and Training Centre have been established at Jaipur. Fiscal incentives will be provided under Policy for Promotion of Agro processing and Agri business, 2010. IT/ITeS Success of the sector in Rajasthan can be gauged from several facts such as registration of 126 STPIs, establishment of India’s largest IT SEZ Mahindra World City at Jaipur (investment of INR13.6 billion and scope for more), and presence of organizations such as Infosys, Wipro and Deutsche Bank. This success has been enabled by low cost manpower that costs 15-20 percent lower in the state than in the national capital region, wide range of opportunities that range from hardware to software to BPO to back-end operations of financial services firms, and fiscal incentives provided under IT and ITeS Policy, 2007 and Rajasthan Incentives Scheme for BPO Centres and KPO Centres, 2011. In order to further develop this sector, the state departments are likely to allocate three percent of their respective budget towards IT/ITeS. - 45 -
