What does Maharashtra have that others don't?
Take a look at these images from the Magnetic Maharashtra stall at the Make In India Week.

The Make In India Week began well for Maharashtra with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announcing Anil Agarwal's plans to invest $10 billion in the state to manufacture LCD units.

The state also signed a flurry of memoranda of understandings with Coca-Cola and Jain Irrigation that will support the orange growers of Vidarbha and an MoU with Raymond to set up the Rs 1,400 crore (Rs 14 billion) Nandgaon Textile Unit.

So, what does Maharashtra offers investors who will throng its stalls at the Make In India Week event at the Bandra-Kurla Complex in suburban Mumbai?
