I) The Particulars of Organisation, functions and duties.
The growth of Small Scale Industries in our country since
independence is rightly regarded as one of the most significant features
of planned economic development. The very concept of small-scale
industries, as we know, was not in vogue on the eve of independence.
Rural and Cottage industries, which constituted the indigenous sector
of our industries, were wide spread throughout the length and breadth of
our country. Various programmes to sustain, modernise and further
develop this group of industries were initiated soon after the
independence and the modern small-scale industry scheme has
gradually emerged out of this programme. The Small Scale Industries
have provided opportunities for self employment to educated young
men and experienced technicians from the middle level of society and
contributed full to the growth of industrial entrepreneurship in our
country. Today small-scale industries is regarded as power tool for
balanced regional economic development. These achievements are
primarily due to the dynamic enterprising spirit of the small-scale
industrialists themselves. A positive programme for assistance of smallscale industries was initiated towards the end of 1954 on the basis of a
suggestion made by the international planning team sponsored by the

Ford Foundation at the request of Govt. of India. Further, on the basis of

the recommendations of the central small scale industries advisory
board the state level organisations to assist the small scale industries
for procurement of scarce raw materials establishment of industrial
