Testimonial

test

TN Guidance Bureau is extremely supportive of the businesses who want to invest in Tamil Nadu, which is one of the highly industrialized states in the country with a favourable ecosystem. The Bureau, with its single window facility, networks with various government agencies and helps the investors with obtaining the necessary approvals from these agencies. The leadership team at the Bureau is always approachable and is ready to help. I wish all success to the Bureau in its pursuit of facilitating more investments to the state.

Mr. Ashok Muthuswamy,

AVP & Plant Head, Tata Chemicals Limited (Silica Division ) – Cuddalore.
