This is to ensure rapid development in the NCR region. Along with this, the Haryana government has demanded a hybrid model for Goods and Services Tax (GST), in which the production share should be included along with the consumption. This will boost employment opportunities in high producing states.

The Haryana government is buying 14 crops at a minimum support price. The government is continuously promoting projects like mushroom farming, fish farming, and dairy farming, he said.
The CM said the Haryana government is continuously increasing the health infrastructure. The Haryana government aims to open one medical college in every district of the state. “So far, medical colleges have either been opened in 19 districts, or the process of opening has started. Medical colleges will also be opened in the remaining three districts soon,” he said.
