150 Industries Exiled Paonta Sahib, Kala Amb

Surat Pundir

htwMany industries are facing closure in Kala Amb and Paonta Sahib, the industrial areas of Sirmour district. The condition of industries, that are providing employment to thousands of youth, is going from bad to worse here. As a result dozen of them have shifted from industrial area Kala Amb while many have shut down their business. About 150 industries have shut down business in Kala Amb and Paonta Sahib after the withdrawal of special industrial package for Himachal Pradesh. Most of the industries scaled down the production after special package term for hill state was over. However biggest reason why industrialists are leaving Himachal Pradesh is termed as state government’s failure to provide basic facilities to industries in the hill state. The government has failed to provide sewerage and drinking water facilities to industries in Kala Amb. Besides this, the condition of roads in these areas too has gone worst further hitting industrial houses.  Big industries like Indian Technomac, Malwa and Shri Krishna etc have closed their business in Sirmour thereby jeopardizing the career of more than 3000 people employed in these three industries alone. Not only these people have lost their jobs, but the state government too has lost revenue because of closure of these three industries. Himachal Pradesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Kala Amb Chamber of Commerce, Himachal Ispat Sangh, Himachal Pradesh Drugs Manufacturing Association, HP Corrugated Box Manufacturers Association and Kala Amb Pharma Association are of the opinion that outflow of industries from the state could be stopped by providing basic facilities like cheap electricity, drinking water facility, sewerage and proper road facility to the industries.

Loss of Revenue

Closure of industries has cost dearly to the state exchequer. closure of three industries namely Indian Technomac, Malwa and Shri Krishna alone will lead to a loss of about Rs. 20 crore besides numerous youth losing their jobs.

Figures Speak

About 110 industries have closed down at Kheri, Moginand, Churan and Johron in Kala Amb while 40 industries have shut their business at Gondpur, Batamandi, Haripur Tohana and Rampurghat in Paonta Sahib in last five years.
