Prime Minster Narendra Modi had, in an address to the nation last week, urged India Inc to invest and help develop in Jammu and Kashmir after the scrapping of special status and bifurcation. He exhorted large corporations, including information technology companies, to invest in the state and generate jobs for the people from the region, and promised to step up infrastructure projects in the region.
