These include granting the sector "industry status" (which would help it secure project funding, tax benefits, concessional power tariffs etc) and exempting it from entertainment and luxury tax for a period of 10 years.

Chhattisgarh: A True Eco and Ethno Ecstasy.
It's covered with nature's canopy of sal, teak and bamboo trees, and carpeted with lush vegetation. It's got a bio-diversity hot spot, 3 National Park and 10 Wildlife Sanctuaries. Its people revere the land — for them, each day is a celebration of life, in which you are welcome to participate. Welcome to Chhattisgarh, the land that's full of Surprises. One of India's youngest states, Chhattisgarh has the country's densest jungles, rivalling those of the Amazon - 44% of the state is under forest cover. Spectacular waterfalls - the horseshoe- shaped Chitrakoot; Tiratgarh, which splits into multiple falls as it descends; and many more dotted all over the countryside -sustain the greenery, as well as an amazing variety of Nature's creatures, including the Bastar Hill Mynah bird, which is said to be able to mimic the human voice. Put on your explorer hat as you step into the massive limestone caves of Kutumsar, Dandak and Kailash, buried deep in the ground at the Kanger Valley National Park in Bastar. Wrap your mind around the aeons it took to build the humongous stalactites and stalagmites found here. Indigenous people live here in harmony with the land, one with nature, as they have done since ancient times. The tribes of Gond Maria, Muria, Dorla and Baiga, India's oldest... each has its distinct culture, manifested through cuisine, music, dance, dress and crafts. Decades of isolation from urban "civilization" have ensured that all have retained their essential simplicity. Dassera is celebrated in Bastar as in all of India; it does not mark the triumphant return of Lord Rama (the hero of the epic Ramayana) to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. Bastar Dassera is celebrated as a congregation of Devi Maoli (Bastars native deity, revered as the "elder sister" of Devi Danteshwari, the family goddess of the ruling Kakaliya family), and all her sisters. Hundreds of priests bring flower — bedecked local deities to the Danteshwari temple in Jagdalpur.
A land where nature and her descendents still live in harmony ...that's Chhattisgarh for you, an Eco-Ethno Fantasy!
