$1 Billion Savings Goal: UP Government Appoints Deloitte Consultant and Signs Memorandum of Understanding



The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday signed a memorandum of understanding with Deloitte India, appointing it as a consultant to achieve the goal of growing the state’s economy to $1 trillion.

The MoU between the consultancy agency and the government was signed in the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath here, according to an official statement posted here.

The government of Uttar Pradesh has entrusted Deloitte India with great responsibility for the prosperity of the country’s most populous state, he said.

The government of Uttar Pradesh decided on July 19 to appoint Deloitte India as a consultant. The decision was taken on the recommendation of a high-level committee at a cabinet meeting chaired by Adityanath.

Speaking on the occasion, Adityanath said, “The time has come for Uttar Pradesh and by fully harnessing its potential, the state will become the most important foundation for the multidimensional development of the country.”

By 2027, Uttar Pradesh will become a benchmark of sabka saath, sabka vikas politics with a trillion dollar economy, the CM has said.

Adityanath said that within the next 90 days, Deloitte India is expected to present a future course of action with thorough deliberation after conducting a sector study.

The action plan will be reviewed by a high level committee chaired by the Secretary General. It will also be examined by a group of ministers.
