The social justice, and unique assistance mission, is dedicated to becoming the most desirable facilitator for Maharashtra’s holistic development. The vision spreads across these areas below:

  • Maharashtra should reclaim its position as India’s most vibrant state.
  • The state should be considered the most investor-friendly state in India, and investors, from all over the world, should consider investing in the state.
  • Men, women, and children from all around the state should be content, prosperous, and secure. 
  • The state should pursue long-term, equitable growth. 
  • It should represent the interests of all stakeholders, at all levels, of government. 
  • The network must span, across the Global Trade and Cultural Organization, for the benefit of all the state’s stakeholders.
  • Facilitating policies to boost the state’s manufacturing sector and promote the “Made in Maharashtra” brand.

One of the main difficulties facing the state government has been to reduce unemployment. To combat unemployment, skill development of the young; is prioritized, across districts, with government institutes providing demand-based training to educated individuals. In addition, Maharashtra’s scholarships are designed to provide financial support, to deserving and impoverished students, from all walks of life. With the country’s second-highest literacy rate, Maharashtra has undoubtedly established itself as an educational hotspot.
