There is a lot of focus on employment generation through industrial units by the J & K administration.

Recently the Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir stressed on creating a formal mechanism for regular interaction with Industries.

He asked for providing support for upscaling of MSME units for large scale employment generation

He recently held the introductory review of the Industries and Commerce Department to take stock of its working and implementation of the Industrial Policy here in the UT.

The meeting was attended by Commissioner Secretary, Industries & Commerce (I&C); Secretary in I&C; Managing Directors of the allied Corporations besides HoDs of I&C from both the Divisions of the UT.

He impressed upon the Department to create a formal mechanism for highlighting and resolution of the concerns of Industrialists. He advised to hold periodic sittings of the forum in both the divisions. The objective of the forum should be to advocate and  further the interests of stakeholders in the Industrial sector.

While appreciating the fact that MSMEs form the backbone of the Industrial sector in J&K, the Chief Secretary emphasised upon providing the necessary support to the MSME units in every sphere, so as to upgrade their status  from lower to higher stratum for large scale employment generation in J&K.

He advises for fixing timelines for completion of work on all the new industrial estates besides regularly monitoring the allotments to ensure the  timely operationalization  of the units by the aspiring entrepreneurs.
