THDC India Ltd is a joint venture with the Union and the UP government for 75% stake.The stake had been transferred after Uttarakhand was established, but it has yet to materialize in the last 22 years, according to the CM.Around 70% of THDC India Ltd's projects are located in Uttarakhand.The state is also faced with challenges relating to rehabilitation, law and order, and other social and environmental issues that result from the above initiatives.

He demanded PM Modis' help in transferring THDC India Ltd's 25% interest stake from UP to Uttarakhand.Also, for a period of five years (during the implementation of GST), arrangements were made to reimburse states for the GST for a period of five years (through June 30,2022).However, the anticipated growth in the states' revenue could not be realized after the implementation of GST due to a low consumption base, a deficient service base, and other factors.Given the state's limited financial resources, the CM asked for a reconvection of the GST payment period beyond June 2022.

About 20% of India's total drug consumption comes from manufacturing units.In the three major industrial complexes in Dehradun, Haridwar, and Udham Singh Nagar, more than 300 pharma plants have been established.Over a lakh people are employed by these businesses.PM Modi was also informed that a tender process for delivering fixed-wing (aircraft) flights from Pithoragarh has been completed.
