Also, one of the main reasons for the high per capita income in the state is the remittances sent by these expatriates, NDTV further reported. Meanwhile, the state government has taken several steps to utilise the investments of Non-Resident Investors for the state's development. 

The Chief Minister also pointed out that, among the returnees, there are a large number of professionals from overseas and other parts of the country. Being well-known for their international expertise and experience in various fields, this project will aim to harness their potential for the future of the state. 

According to government figures and stats, in 2018 Rs 85,000 crore was sent by the expatriates to the state which has now touched over Rs 1 lakh crore while their remittances in banks are 1,69,944 crore.

Further giving details about the committee, Vijayan stated that a group comprising young civil service officers, will be formed to give expert advice on the implementation of each idea. The team will evaluate the proposals and recommend this to the respective departments.
