Baramulla sans Industrial Estate
Baramulla, July 13: In absence of an industrial estate here, hundreds of enthusiastic youths ambitious to start their industrial units in this north Kashmir district find themselves in quandary.
District President, Chamber of Federation Baramulla, Muhammad Ashraf said the district administration sometime back had identified certain spots including Delina, Jihamma and Tangmarg for the establishment of an industrial estate, “but the non-seriousness on the part of the authorities came in its way.”
Many youth interested to set up their units expressed their dismay with the absence of the IE in the district. “After finishing my post graduation, I made up my mind to go for self-employment. Without wasting any time, I prepared a project report for establishing a unit here,” said Firdous Ahmad of Khawja Bagh Baramulla, adding that his plan however could not fructify due to non-availability of industrial estate in the district.
“Had there been an industrial estate in the district, I would have been able to get the land and establish my unit,” he added.
General Manager, District Industries, Baramulla, Nazir Ahmad Baba acknowledged that in the absence of an industrial estate, “the industrial growth in the district has been hampered.”
“The number of unemployed educated youth who want to establish their units is increasing every day. If an industrial estate is established here it will definitely help create a lot of employment” Baba said.
