The Haryana government has roped in consulting firm Mott MacDonald for carrying out a fresh survey of industrial units including micro, small, medium and large enterprises.

Stating this, a senior official of Haryana Industries Department said that the consulting firm, with which a memorandum of understanding would be signed soon, would submit its final report of within six months.

The survey would throw light on number of functional industrial units, employment generated by them, level of investments and production and exports. This data, once it is ready, would help the state government in framing policies and initiative for industrial development, he said.

Though Haryana had been maintaining the database of industrial units established in the state, but it had become outdated with the change of definitions of various categories of industrial units during last 15 years, dispensing with the compulsory registration of industrial units and some industrial units having been closed down.

Moreover, fresh survey was also necessary in view of the changed nomenclature and definitions of enterprises, as under the MSME Development Act, 2006.

The number of large and medium enterprises in Haryana stands at 1,212 with capital investment of Rs 225 billion while employing 2 lakh people and producing goods with Rs 12,800 crore per annum, according to a report prepared by Assocham and Yes Bank.

The number of micro and small industries in the state is 80,000 units, producing goods worth Rs 4,500 crore per annum with employment of 8.7 lakh persons, as per report.
