Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said his government was ready to draft a separate policy for stainless steel manufacturers provided they were willing to foray into gymnasium equipment manufacturing and start producing toys for kids as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Modi was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of India's first four-day long stainless steel fair Indinox-2010 that commenced here today.

"Health care industry is developing at a very fast pace and youths are getting more health conscious leading to opening of gymnasiums, so if gyms exist today at say 1000 locations in another 2 to 3 years it could open at 10,000 places," Modi said.

The CM suggested that stainless steel manufacturers as part of their CSR could start manufacturing polished toys for the children so that they get ample opportunity to play in public parks, especially children parks, schools or Anganwadi centres.

"If anyone from the stainless steel sector is willing to enter these two segments (gymnasium and toys) then we could draft a separate policy for it and also give them incentives if required," Modi said.
