Problems & Prospects of Industrial Development in A Metropolitan City: A Case of Delhi

Omesh Saigal (Author) Prakash Kumar (Author) R K Gupta (Author) R. Mudgal (Author)
Synopsis Delhi is not only the national capital and seat of the Central Govt. of India, but it has also developed into a pulsating modern industrial city. On the one hand it saw steep rise in the population after Partition, on the other hand it saw spectacular growth of industrial activity from a mere 8,000 units in 1951 to more than 85000 units in 1991. Industries have contributed in a big way to the growth of population of the city, hence it is appropriate to give serious thought to further industrialization of the city and the manner of doing so. The present volume is substantially based on the scholarly deliberations of a seminar organized by DSIDC, which was attended by the learned representatives of the Industry, Educational Institutions, Administration & Govt. Agencies, Scientific Organisations, Planners & Architects etc. The idea was to analyse the problems facing the industries in Delhi and to hammer out solution and remedies by generating a debate amongst the various instruments and agencies of Industrial development. Some of the constructive suggestions put forward are that in future only environment-friendly high-tech industries, which are less taxing in infrastructure, be permitted in Delhi and one leading institution, like DSIDC, be declared as Nodal agency for administrating industrial growth in Delhi. It is sincerely hoped that all the deliberations and recommendations as carefully compiled in the present Volume, will be found highly informative and constructive by entrepreneurs, industrialists, academicians, economists, managers and policy planners in the field.
