Industries In Uttaranchal

In recent years, Uttarakhand has emerged as one of the most attractive industrial destinations in India. The government is encouraging private participation in all industrial activities and as a result big players such as HLL and Dabur have set up units in the state. The New Industrial Policy announced in 2003 by the state government puts in place the regulatory framework for Uttarakhand's industrialisation. The New Industrial Policy indicates that private resources may be tapped while promoting integrated Industrial Estates in Uttarakhand.

State Uttaranchal is a land of scenic beauty, temples, lakes, mountains, glaciers and green lush meadows. Therefore the main industry of this state is tourism industry and it had almost 80% of U.P.'s tourism centres in it before it became a separate state. But the tourism industry of Uttaranchal is legging behind in the lack of good infrastructure and facilities. The govt. has also not given proper attention to this sector. We hope the state Govt. will take appropriate action to boost this sector and one day Uttaranchal will become a major tourist destination in all over India. Although some other revenue earning sectors of state Uttaranchal are:

Industrial sector Agricultural Sector
  • Sugar Mills

Tourism Industry  
  • Hotel Industry
  • Traveling Agency etc.
  • All Hospitality Related Business
 

Uttaranchal State has come into being at a time when its extraordinally well-placed to benefit from the new information economy as it is able to play by the rules of the new era and is responsive to the demands of the global services economy, which when it seeks the best locations for itself looks for several factors. if a clean and pollution-free environment is going to serve as a competitive advantage it stands to reason that the new state will do everything it can to promote it. this might include a programme to encourage cleaner, environment-friendly transportation systems and efforts at large scale afforestation.
