On the basis of this, economic experts claimed that between April and June, under the guidelines of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, there has been an increase in the fields of agriculture, animal husbandry, fisheries, mining, water supply, manufacturing, transport, service sector and construction. Due to the work being done in the above areas, economic experts have estimated the GSDP of UP (at current prices) to be Rs 4, 05,835 crore in the year 2021-22.

State Finance Minister Suresh Khanna also agreed with this assessment of economic experts.

These economic experts gave many arguments regarding the reasons for the improvement in the economy of the state.

According to experts of the Earth and Numbers Division, economic activities came to a standstill due to the lockdown imposed during the Corona crisis last year. Economic activities were started gradually after the lockdown was lifted.

In the meantime, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held direct talks with small businessmen to big industrialists to speed up economic activities. To promote export business, many concessions were announced. Industrialists were invited to invest in IT and logistics sector and small businessmen were arranged to get loans from banks to start business. Arrangements were also made to provide loans to the street vendors. Loan was provided to the MSME sector by running a campaign. Loans of more than two lakh crore rupees were provided to this sector.

Due to this, two crore people got employment in this sector and now this (MSME) sector is proving to be the growth engine of UP’s economy.

These efforts of the state government showed better results.

Economic experts say that after dealing with the Corona crisis last year and the way Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took steps to save life and livelihood while facing the Corona epidemic this year, economic activities have been going on in the state. Industrial production is increasing rapidly in the state due to agriculture. Due to which, during the last one year, the export business of UP in the state has increased.

While the growth has increased, the export business of states like Maharashtra, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu has decreased.
