A day after he promised government’s support for Vedanta-Foxconn investment worth Rs 2.06 lakh crore in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Wednesday paid a courtesy visit at Ratan Tata’s residence in Mumbai and met the Tata group’s former chairman. Tata Sons’ chairman Natarajan Chandrasekaran was also present on the occasion.

Shinde said that Tata heartily congratulated him and wished him the best during his tenure as Chief Minister.

Shinde’s meeting is crucial as he, along with Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, recently announced that the state government will take further steps to create an investor-friendly atmosphere in a bid to make Maharashtra a $1 trillion economy. Shinde’s ‘’courtesy’’ call on Tata came when the state government wants the group to increase its investments in the state. The state government is already wooing the Tata Group for its semiconductors venture.

‘’Ratan Tata heartily congratulated me on being elected as Chief Minister and wished me the best for my career as Chief Minister," Shinde tweeted in Marathi.
