The Uttar Pradesh government on 4 December 2012 decided to issue Golden Cards to industrialists and industrial associations for easy access to its offices.
The Golden Card facility is part of the larger effort of creating an industry-friendly environment in Uttar Pradesh.
A Golden Card will be like an identity (ID) card with the holder's photo. It will allow entry of industrialists to the state secretariat and government departments on priority basis without hurdles. The right to visit card will be treated at par with ID cards issued by the secretariat.
The outstanding fact is that, the cardholder's issues too will be taken up on priority basis and is going to be resolved in time-bound manner.
The Golden card facility is supposed to be available to state presidents and general secretaries of national-level industrial associations such as the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), PHD Chamber of Commerce & Industry (PHDCCI), Indian Industries Association (IIA), Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Assocham) and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). The cards will also be issued to national presidents of these associations on demand.
Reputed investors, who propose to invest more 200 crore rupees in Uttar Pradesh, will also be issued the cards. Promoters of such projects or their nominated representative will be able to avail this facility.
