The Andaman and Nicobar Islands have been recognised as an ‘Aspiring Leader’ in the latest States’ Start-up Ranking of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), officials said.

“We are delighted to receive the prestigious title of ‘Aspiring leader’ (in the 4th edition of the States' Start-Up Ranking). The recognition fits very well with our consistent and persistent efforts to establish Andaman and Nicobar Islands as a thriving hub for startups across various domains and sectors,” Nikhil Kumar, commissioner-cum-secretary (Industries), Andaman and Nicobar Administration, told PTI. 

“The administration is leaving no stone unturned in fostering a positive, conducive,, and vibrant start-up ecosystem in the islands backed by enabling legal, structural, and policy-related interventions,” he said.
