Department of Economics, Nagpur University and Shantiniketan Business School are jointly organizing a symposium on May, 24, 2014 between 4 pm and 6 pm. The symposium, under the auspices of Dr Vinayak Deshpande, Pro Vice Chancellor, has been aimed at exploring feasible solutions for a vibrant MIHAN. The symposium will be held at VIA’s Udyog Bhavan, Civil Lines, Nagpur. Eminent citizens and stakeholders have been invited to participate and contribute to a positive growth of the region.
MIHAN is the largest infrastructure project that is crucial for the development of Nagpur and Vidarbha. However, the pace of the project is very slow because of various constraints. The ongoing power tangle, culminating into termination of power supply, a couple of days back, could be the biggest hurdle that is causing a severe setback to the entire project.
If the things are allowed to move unchecked, the situation may lead to the eventual retreat of the industries from MIHAN. Such an unsolicited catastrophic situation is bound to retard the growth of Nagpur, as also Vidarbha and Maharashtra. It would also severely impair the employment potential for years to come. All these aspects are likely to be discussed in the symposium.
