Shinde said upcoming projects will generate more jobs in Maharashtra.

“The Union government has approved the state urban development department's proposal to undertake Rs 14,000 crore worth of works. The Bandra Kurla Complex (in suburban Mumbai) has been declared a central business district,” the chief minister said.

“A Japanese company is investing nearly Rs 2,000 crore in the state, which will generate employment for 5,000 to 6,000 people. A cabinet sub-committee has sanctioned various new projects as well,” Shinde said.

Maharashtra is the first state which has responded positively to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal to provide employment to 10 lakh people as the country is celebrating 75 years of its independence, Shinde said.
