Bhopal is the most overpopulated city & district in madhya


pradesh.reison district is just beside of bhopal district.the
population density of reisen is 157per sq km wher 854 per sq km in
bhopal. Compare to the country and State the density of population is less in
the district. Goherganj Tehsil has the density of only 73 persons / Sq KM. Major
part of the working force is engaged in agricultural activities. In the absence of
division of labour and time bound work schedule, disguised unemployment is
more in agriculture sector.

Region Demographics

Silwani block is located in the central Madhya Pradesh about 135 Km from the city of Bhopal, the
state capital. Silwani block has a tribal population of 30%. Most tribals live in hilly and forest
areas. Tribal backwardness and exploitation are prevalent. There are no urban areas or industries
in the entire block; the biggest town is Silwani with a population of 15,000. Agriculture is the most
important occupation of the people but 70% of the cultivated area does not have proper irrigation
facilities. Majority of the tribals are small farmers with five or less acres of land that is mostly not
arable. 15% of the tribals do not own land at all but depend on daily wages and collection of minor
forest produce for their livelihood. Cattle-rearing is another source of income. The literacy rate of
the area is about 60%. The level of literacy and education among the tribal is lower than that of
the other sections of the society. The facilities for higher education are very limited. There is only
one Arts College in the whole area and the faculty in the college is also very limited. Similarly the
facilities for technical education are practically absent.
Our partner NGO, RDSS has been working in the area for many years to promote education of
tribal children. Every year 15-25 tribal students from RDSS supported institutions pass 10th
Grade. In addition, 50-60 students pass 10th Grade from the five high schools in the area. A
similar number of children also complete 12th Grade every year. Due to various reasons, 60% of
the tribal students discontinue their studies after middle school and 80% after 10th grade. Less
than 5% of the tribal students who pass 12th grade go for a higher education. The situation of
girls in tribal community is worse. Due to the traditional practices, girls do not continue education
beyond primary school. Due to lack of education, they are not aware of their rights and
responsibilities. So, there is a dire need to provide some employment opportunities to the literate
and also semi-literate youth of the area.

The district is having enough forest wealth, wherein the production of Building woods,
Firewood and valuable medicinal plants are produced. Sects of population depend on
the forest for their livelihood. More industries can come up on forest based products,
which will help to improve the employment generation in the rural areas substantially.
II.Literacy:
Literacy is one of the main factors for the overall development of the area. Only
literacy can provide valuable and knowledgeable working force that is one of
the four inevitable instruments for the development. Literacy rate in the district
is 40.76% that is slightly lesser than the states literacy rate. Female literacy is
as low as 25.47%, which is only 20.45% in rural areas. Male literacy rate is
comparatively better that is 54.02%. In rural areas, Male literacy rate is 49.8%.
Highest percentage of literacy recorded in Goherganj Tehsil (44.78%) followed
by Udaipura Tehsil (41.85%). The lowest rate of literacy is recorded in Silvani
Tehsil (36.30%).
Government and non-government organisations are taking concrete efforts to
improve the literacy level in the district. As per the available information (199798) seven Professional Institutions, Eight colleges, seventy Higher Secondary
Schools, Three Hundred and Thirty six Middle Schools and thousand one
hundred and six primary schools are functioning in the district.
During the year, 123512 students were enrolled in Primary Schools out of which
48332 were girls. There were 81 students enrolled in professional institutions.
Even though technical and strategic important institutions are not established
in the district.

Material Resources:
The Nature has provided unlimited wealth in the form of land hills, forest, water etc.,
These resources are not concentrated in any one place but spread over different areas.
These resources play a vital role in the overall development of the area subject to the
optimum utilisation of the available resources.

I. Agriculture:
Agricultural is the main occupation of the district. About 70% of the working
population are engaged in crop growing activities. Agricultural activities are
carried out in two seasons namely rainy season (Kharif) and winter
seasons(Rab).
It has been observed that the tools and implements used by the farmers of the
district are comparatively few in numbers, smaller in size, crude and antiquated
in character. The ploughing is done iron-shod wooden plough with the help of
pair of Bullocks/Buffaloes and Tractors, This type of indigenous plough does
not penetrate deeply into the soil and widely enough. Use of chemical fertilisers
is widely reported in the district.
II. Land Utilisation:
The district is having different types of lands and soils, Red sols, light blocks
soils, red-core sand and small stone in the hillocks are the main combination of
soil type observed in the district. Red soil is hard in nature due to the presence
of iron ore concentration and least capable of keeping the wetness for long
time.About 75000-hectare land is available in the district for the use of activities
other than agriculture. All the Tehsils are having these types of lands, which
can be utilised for industrial development in future.
III. Cropping Pattern:
Low and arenas are used for Wheat cultivation and high land areas used for the
cultivation of pulses and other crops like maize, millets etc., Double crops are
cultivated, wherever continues irrigation facilities are available. Short term and
long term varieties of Wheat are cultivated in the district. Average productivity
in the district is about 1.5 tonnes per hectare. Paddy production is very limited
in the district.

The above table clearly depicts that the marginal farmers accounts for 17.69%
in numbers and only 2.05 % in respect of land holdings. Very small holdings are
uneconomical and major source of disguised unemployment. The whole family
marginal farmers in the district worked out as .471 hectare. This appears very
mall to carry out the activities in proper manner.
Contrarily, Large farmers accounts for 7.82 % in numbers and utilising about
34.92 % of land holdings. Increasing population and vanishing of joint family
divided into many parts on each generation. After some times the land holdings
(very small in size) may not useful for cultivation. Laws should restrict multiple
divisions.

VII.

Horticulture:
Green vegetables and fruits are widely produced in the district, Guava, Mango,
Orange and lemon are the important among fruits, Tomato (County and high
breed varieties), Onion, Potato, Brinjal, Cauliflower leaves and some local
varienties of vegetables are produced in the district.
Area under horticultural products is increasing every year. On seeing the
present status of Productions and rapid increase in area and production many
food processing industries can come up under SSI in the district, Such
Possible industries are recommended in the following chapters of this report.

VIII.

Sericulture:
Sericulture is the concept to provide employment in the rural areas and earning
for their livelihood. Madhya Pradesh is also one of the leading states on
sericulture production. But Raisen district is lacking behind on sericulture
production. Sericulture production in the district is negligible and there is no
industrial use.

IX.

Forest:
All development blocks of the district are having a considerable area under
forest. Total forest area in the district is about 333236.856 hectare out of which
about 31.7% forest land is in Goherganj tehsil and followed by Silvani tehsil
which accounts for 19.07 %. The district is having enough forest wealth,
wherein the production of building woods, firewood and valuable medicinal
plants are reported production. Sects of population depend on the forest for
their livelihood. More industries can come up on forest based products, which
will help to improve the employment generation in the rural areas.

X.

Fisheries:
Fishery is one of the major activities carried out in the district to provide
employment opportunities to rural people. The panorama depicts that the
fishery is having a vast scope in the district. As the total production goes to the
adjacent district Bhopal for direct consumption, there is no scope for industrial
use at present.
The district is having 19 water reservoirs covering 10908.08- hectare area and
312 rural ponds covering an area of 612.74- hectare area. In addition to this
about 501-Km length of rivers and sub rivers are under the active fishery in the
district.

XI.

Livestock Resources:
In the developing economy five stock resources also play a vital role. Some
countrys economy today depends on live stock. Live stock population and
dairy development depends upon the climatic condition grazing land etc. In
Raisen district, the surroundings, climatic conditions and vast forestland
favour the dairy development. It is observed that all the villages is having own
herd of animals of different varieties. The cattle are country variety gives less
milk compared to high breed variety. Dairy forming is having a good scope in
the district. If the country varieties replaced by the high breed varieties of
cattle, dairy development is possible in the district. Dairy development will
generate employment opportunities in rural areas and the standard of living of
the people can be improved.

INFRASTRUCTURE FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT


Infrastructure development is the basic need of the industrial development of any
Region/Country. Infrastructure in broad sense covers transportation, communication,
financial services, government agencies and non government bodies associated with
development works basic necessity of the public such as water, shelter, medical
facilities, educational institutions etc., All these things are essential for industrial
development apart from the raw material, labour force, enterpreneurship and
modernisation & technological upgradation.

The infrastructure development can be divided into two major heads.


a.

Physical Infrastructure

b.

Social Infrastructure
A) Physical Infrastructure:
I. Land Availability for industrial Development:
Land is one of the basic factors for the industrial development. The present
Raisen district covers seven development blocks/seven Tehsils. District
administrative offices are located in district head quarter Raisen. The
Geographical area of the district is 8466 Sq Km, out of the which 28812 non
cultivable land and 4638 hectare fallow land can be utilised for industrial
development of the district. These lands are widely spread over in all the
development blocks. To keep up the balanced development on sector and
region government has developed three industrial Estate at Begumgani and
one industrial Growth centre at Mandideep in Goherganj Tehsil. By and large
availability of land is not a problem for the industrial development in the
district.

II.

Factory Accommodation:
District Raisen is Industrial backward and most of the industrial units
established are concentrated in Mandideep Industrial Growth Centre in
Oeyadullah ganj block, There fore other development blocks such as
Gairatganj Begumganj. Udaipura and silvani remain "No Industry Blocks" in the
district. Now it is an immediate necessary to decentralise the industrial
development. Detail of availability of industrial areas its current status is given
below:

The whole area is


occupied illegally

The above table clearly depicts that the people illegally occupy the industrial
areas in Sala matpura and Gairatgani. This is a hindirance for the industrial
development of the area. Government should take necessary action to vacate
illegal occupation and should be allotted to interested entrepreneurs to set up
industrial units.
In Mandideep Indl. Growth centre is developed by the AKVN. About 350 units of
different types established in the centre. It is clearly proved that the small scale
units has become vulnerable in the changes taken place in the national
economy and many of the units closed down their activities or become sick in
this centre.
AKVN is developing one more industrial centre is Satlaspur near Mandidep.
The centre covers about 600 Acre land. It is proposed to accommodated only
Large and Medium scale units in this centre. The sheds are yet to be allotted.
III. Water Availability for Industrial Purpose:
Water is one of the inevitable factors for the development of the industries.
Rsiden district is not having stable water source. The rivers flowing in the
district are not perennial in nature. However other source such as ground water
and reserves are serving purpose. At present there is no water scarcity in the
district.
IV.

Power:
Madhya Pradesh electricity Board widely spread over their service in the
district. Generally, power in Madhya Pradesh is not well. The same condition
prevails in the district also. The following table shows the electricity
consumption pattern in the district.

About one lakh electricity consumers are reported from the district. After
Agricultural Industrial sector is the major consumer of electricity which is due
to Mandideep industrial area.
V.

Railways:
District head quarter Raisen is not connected by rail lines. But Delhi Mumbai
(Via nkhandwa), Delhi-Chennai main Board gauge railway line passes through
the district. Salamatpur, Dewanganj, Sanchi, Mandideep, obeyadullahganj and

Barkheda are some station of situated in the district. About 60 km of this Broad
Gauge line serve the purpose of active rail transportation in the district.
VI.

Road:
Road is the main source of transportation in the district. The district is having
1124 km of all weather road that is as low 13.24 km road for every 100 Sq Km
area, which is far less than the national average of 37 Km and states average of
29 Km. (State and National average data pertains to the year 1994-95).
About 1481 Km of seasonal roads also serves the purpose of transportation in
the district. State High way no. 18 Connects the district Head quarter with
Bhopal and Sagar. National high way no. 12 passes through the important town
of the district such as Mandideep. Obeyadullahganj, Badi, Bareli and Udaipura.

VII.

Road Transport:
Road transportation is the main source of transport in the district. About 80%
of the travelers use the road transport and remaining 20% uses the other mode
of transport. Road transport is having an equal importance in goods
transportation also. Buses, Taxi, Car, Scooter and other two and three wheelers
serve the purpose of people movement. Mini buses and jeeps are plying in rural
areas. Trucks are the main source of goods transport in the district. About
25,000 vehicles are registered in the district.

VIII.

Air Transport:
Bhopal is the nearest Airport, which is only 45km from the district hed quarter
Raisen.

IX.

Water Transport:
The district is a land locked and the rivers are not perennial and not having
enough depth for water transtport, there is no water transport system in the
district.
A. SOCIAL INFRASTRUCTURE:

i.

Enterprneurship:
Enterpreneurship is the quality to identity the need and necessity of the public
to present their commodities according to the requirement of the mass.
Entrepreneurship can be improved on experience. The district is having
educational institutions to impart academic education to the people. Stra
institutions like Management Institutions are not available in the district.
According to the reliable source, flow of money is more in the district.
Generally, the people are interested in business activities rather than
manufacturing activities. It is necessary to educate the young generation on
entreprenership.

ii.

Market Potenial:
Agricultural products are marketed through Madhys Pradesh Agricultural
Products Marketing Committee. The committee management is having markets
(Krishi Upaj Mandi ) at Raisen that is a "B" grade market and working around
the year. "C" grade mandis are located in Gairatganj, Begumganj, Mandideep,
Bareli and Udaipura.

Being a district head quarter Raisen is having a semi developed market Other
places like Mandideep and obeydullahganj are very near to Bhopal the market
facility has not been developed. About 70% of the population is residing in rural
areas. There is no developed market facility in the rural areas. About 40 weekly
Hat Marketes (Bazaar) serves the purpose of market in rural areas. The traders
are moving from area to area, displaying and selling their items in the Hat
markets. There is a need for improving the organised marketing facilities in the
district.
iii.

Lending Institutions:
Financial Institution is one of the major factors for the industrial development
of any area. Availability of Industrial finance according to the policy of the
Government is also plays a vital role in the development. Government of India
nominated a particular band as Lead Bank in every district to monitor the flow
of finance to different sectors. Accordingly, Central Bank of India serves as
Lead Bank of Raisen district.
There are five nationalised Banks, Regional Rural Bank, District Central Cooperative Bank and Land Development Bank branches are working in the
district. 91 branches of these banks extend the financial services in the disrict.
All development Blocks are having one of more bank branches.

During the year 1999-2000 4.675 crores of rupees targeted for rural, Cottage
and SSI sector that works out about 10.70% of the total Priority sector target.
Out of this only 26% achievement recorded. Financial flow to SSI sector is
unsatisfactory. The people and Bankers are more interested in business
activities instead of manufacturing activities. Proper guidance and motivation
is required to accelerate the industrial development in the district.
Credit plan target for the year 2000-01 is fixed as Rs. 4870.70 lakh for the
priority sector. Out of which Rs. 463.55 lakhs (9.517%) is earmarked for SSI

sector, which seems to be very less. Bankers should invest more on industrial
manufacturing activities.
Prime Minister Rojgar Yojna (Empolyment Scheme)
Government of India has brought out a scheme namely, "Prime Minister Employment
Scheme (Rojgar Yojna) to provide self employment to the educated unemployment
youths during the year 1983. The scheme is implemented through District Industries
Centre in the country. Under the scheme,the application can get loan facility upto Rs. 2
lakh for manufacturing activities and Rs. One lakh for business activities. The Scheme
is implemented in the district since its inception.
The following table shows the progress/implementation of the scheme in the district.

SISI being the nodal agency, survey team visited a number of bank branches
and inquired about the implementation of the scheme and recovery of the loan.
It is informed that the recovery of loan in very poor. The scheme is not well
published in rural areas. It is necessary to bring into the notice of rural mass
about the scheme to achieve the actual goal of the scheme.

V.

Incentives:
Small Scale Industries are playing a vital role in the national economy. On
seeing the importance, Union and State Governments providing many
incentives for the SSI sector. Rausen district falls under the "A" category of
industrially Backward District.

a) Central Incentives:
In the line of globalisation and liberalisation of the economy, Government of
India has announced its industrial Policy in 1991. According to the Industrial
Policy,
o

The Licensing system has been abolished. Establishing an industrial


unit under SSI sector has become very easy.

About 797 items are reserved for exclusive production in SSI sector at
present.

There are 354 items are reserved under government purchase scheme,
for such purchases from SSI sector government gives price preference
also.

To ensure the timely payment from the medium and large scale units,
Government of India issued a notification to establised Facilitation
Councils in the state level.

Technology Upgradation scheme is implemented. Government of India


is reimbursing 75% of the expenditure or Rs. 75000/- (Maximum) to get
the ISO 9000 certification for the SSI sector.

For more detail, Small Industries Service institute, 10 pologround Industrial


Estate, Indore can be contacted.
b) State Incentive:
The district is get all Incentives provided by the Government of Madhya
Pradesh to industrial backward "A" category district. Out of seven existing
development blocks five blocks come under "No Industry Block" as there is no
Large/Medium scale unite is established in these blocks.
According to the Industrial Policy 1994, the incentives applicable to the "A"
category of industrially backward districts in Madhya Pradesh.
o

Government of Madhya Pradesh is allotting land /shed for the


entrepreneurs on 99 years lease.

Subsidy on fixed Capital Investment @ 7.5 % to the maximum of Rs. 1.5


lakh. The maximum limit is Rs. 2 lakhs for thrust sector.

Sale tax relief on fixed Capital Investment (from the date of


commencement of production ) 150 % for seven years and 200 % for
five years in case of deferred payment. However, the units registered
after 31.12.99 and those units already registered but not commenced
the production on or before 31.12.2001 are not eligible for this relief. For
more detail Directorate of industries, Bhopal or concern DTIC may be
contacted.

Subsidy on interest is 2 % less than the lending rate. Maximum of Rs.


25,000/- per annum.

Re-imbursement of Project Report Cost of 0.5 % to 15 maximum if Rs.


3.0 lakhs.

Octroi/Entry taxes exemption on capital goods and raw materials for


five years.

In the present industrial scenario the units can not survive only with the
Government incentives. The units have to stand itself and get prepared for
cutthroat competition imposed by the multi-nationals in internal and
international market.

VI.

Technical Skills and Training Facilities:

There are seven professional institutions are working in the district. Out of
these, two in Raisen and Uadipura and one each in Begumganj, Breli and
Silvani Tehsils. During the year 1997-98, about 91 students were studying in
these institutions. Only one Industrial Training Institute is working in Raisen.
The Institute is having two trades say, Fitter and Hindi Stenography, having 32
seats and 16 seats respectively. After the introduction of computers in all level,
the students are not interested to take admission in the Hindi Stenography
course. According to the opinion of the people, it is necessary to introduce
computer training such as CAD/CAM and designing in the institute. This is the
requirement of the time.
VII.

Growth Centre/Focal Points:


There are three industrial areas and one semi urban industrial estate has been
established in the district to accelerate the industrial development. However, all
the industrial area/shed have been allotted or occupied illegally. There is only
one growth centre is established in Mandideep (near to State Capital Bhopal )
in Obeyadullaganj Block.The growth centre is having all the facilities required
for industrial development. It is situated in Broad Gauge rail line and National
High way No 12. About 350 units were established in the growth centre out of
which 58 unites fall under Large/medium category.
Present Industrial Structure:
I. General Industrial Climate:
Raisen is an agro based district and about 70 % of the population engaged in
agricultural & allied activities. Industrial development in the district is yet to reach the
optimum level. Industrial units are concentrated only in Mandideep Industrial Growth
Centre of Obeydullaganj block. Decentralisation of industrial growth is yet advantage
of transportation, as these towns are located in National High way no. 12. The district
is having fundamental infrastructure facilities for industrial development. The
entrepreneurs are more conservative in rural areas.
II. Large/Medium scale Industries:
The district achived a significant industrial growth Mandideep Industrial Growth
Centre, availing the comparative advantage of transport facility, Capital city in the
vicinity etc., But the other parts/blocks of the district could not make headway in the
field of industrial growth. Tireless efforts taken by the Union and State government, the
industrial environment has become favourable in the district. There are 63
Large/Medium scale units have been established in the district. All the unit are
established under private sector.
The following list reflects the position of large/medium scale units registered in the
district.

All the Large/Medium Scale units are concentrated in Mandideep only. Other industrial
Potential Block such as Udaipura, Badi, Silvani, Giratganj and Begumganj are
remaining no industry block in the district. Decentralisation and balanced industrial
development in the immediate necessary of the district.
The district has achieved headway in the industrial development due to the Mandideep
Industrial Growth centre. Due consideration should be given for the development of
other areas in the district also.

III. Small Scale Industries:


The development of Small-Scale sector in the district is not encouraging. Registration
of Small-Scale and cottage industries are inconsistent in the district. For the fast
development of the industries in the district, the State Government has established two
District industries Centre in the district. One is functioning in the district Head Quarter
Raisen, and serving for your development blocks name, Sanchi, Begumganj.
Gairatganj and Silvani. Another District industries Centre has been established in
Mandideep to serve Goherganj, Badi and Udaipura tehsils of the district. Small Scale
units registered under SIDO is being reflected in the following table.

As 70 % of the population is residing in rural areas. The cottage and rural industries
should play s vital role in the economy of the district. But the registration of SSI units
in the district is not having consistency. The above table depicts this fact. The
registered units very small and tiny and most agro based.
IV. Khadi and Village Industries (Gramodhyog) Board:

Khadi and Village Industries Board is working in the purview of the State Government.
Several Union Government Schemes also implemented through this board. The board
is promoting rural industries to provide employment opportunities to the rural
population. The institution financing for small establishments in rural areas having
less than the population of 20,000. About 111 items are enlisted for the production
under the purview of Khadi and Village Industries Board. Various types of industries
spread all over the district. Bricks manufacturing, stone crushing, footwear
manufacturing, Blacksmith works, Carpentry etc., activities are financed by the board
under various schemes run by the State/Union Government.
V. Handicrafts:
Forest resources are available in the district. At present a few families are engaged in
the job of manufacturing various handicraft items in Sanchi development block. Sanchi
is being a tourist centre Handicraft can be development in the district,.

Prospects of Industrial Development


The analytical views expressed in the earlier chapters shows that the district has
enormous natural resources, mainly agricultural products and horticultural products.
Even through, the industrial development in the district is not spread over the whole
area and not reached the optimum level so far, lack of initiation and enterprenuership,
shortage of skilled persons, capital and inadequacy of basic facilities and amenities
are major reasons for the slow growth of the industries in the district.
On exploitation of natural resources and optimum use of available resources and
exploration of new markets for the products, a number of small-scale units based on
agricultural, Horticulture, animal husbandry and forest can be set up in the district.
Increasing urban population and the message of using modern goods reaching the
remote villagers through effective media/communication at present a number of
demand based units can be established in the district. As the construction activity is
increasing constantly the demand construction materials.
I.

Criteria for Identifying Candidate Industries:


Generally, Industrial proposals are being made based on availability of raw materials or
demand of the product. The selection of candidature industries proposed for the
district is based on the following criteria:

I.

Availability of various raw materials

Present status of Industrialisation

Availability of skill persons and working force

Technology upgradation and likely to be available in future

Market potentiality
Small Scale Industries:

The main objective of this survey is to identify the possibility for setting up of more
industries in small scale sector. The big industries require more investment and which
proves to be capital intensive; not of labour intensive. At present, the investment limit
for Small Scale and Ancllary Industries is Rs. One Crore in plant & Machinery.
Therefore, most of the industries suggested in this report can be set up under SSI.

A.

RESOURCE BASED INDUSTRIES

a.

Agro based Industries

Pulse (Dal) Mill :


Pulses play a vital role in the food items of India society. Whether it is Kashmir
or kanyakumari the pulse consumption is constant. Different types pulses
consumed in different condition and different preparation according to the
taste of the people and region. Pulse is a dried one, which is taken to fulfil the
requirements of protein for a normal human being. Pulses are having variety
nutrients like vitamins, protein, minerals etc., which are essential for the human
being.
Pulse milling can be set up in the Small-Scale sector. The raw material
availability is not a problem in the district. About 2,00,000 MT tone of tone of
various pulses produced in the district every year. At present a few pulse mill
are working in the district. As compared to the production, the consumption of
these mills are negligible.
Marketing is not a problem in the State and in other states also. Pulse is a
stable food item and demand for pulse is increasing day by day. There is a very
good scope for pulse milling in the district.
A mini plant can be set with investment of Rs. 6.0 lakh in Plant &Machinery.
About five tone of pulse can be processed in the plant per day. As the Pulse
production in done seasonally. This type plants require more working capital.
About Rs. 50.0 lakh may be earmarked as working capital.
This type of mini pulse plants can be set up in Udaipura Bareli and Gairatganj
Tehsils, where the pulse production is e and at present there is no such
industry working

II. Wheat Flour (Atta)/Maida Mill:


Wheat Flour is one of the staple and basic food items in India, particularly in
North India. Wheat flour is manufactured from the wheat, which is cultivated in
the winter season. Consumption of wheat flour in different forms all over the
country is increasing rapidly day by day.
Raisen district is one of the leading producers of wheat in Madhya Pradesh.
The Average Productivity is also comparatively high in the district. About three
lakh tonnes of wheat is produced in the district annually. Raisen, Udaipura,
Goherganj, Silvani Tehsils are the main producers of Wheat in the district.

Raisen and Mandideep Agricultural Products Market is working throughout the


year. Therefore, raw material is not a problem in the district.
District head quarter Raisen is only 45 Km away from the States Capital
Bhopal. And also the main production centres are located in the National/State
Highway. Therefore, transportation of raw material as well as finished products
becomes easy. Marketing can be done in 5Kg or 10Kg bags for small
consumers and 50-100Kg bags for large consumers. As Bhoal is very near,
marketing is not a problem for the wheat- based flours. The demand is
increasing by 5to 10 % every year.
Mini flourmills can be set up under Small Scale sector. Compare to Cost of
machinery the working capital requirement will be more in this sector. However,
the product come under the daily use category, it is possible to manage with
minimum working capital. About 10 lakh rupees may be required for plant &
machinery, which plant ca process about 30-40 tones wheat every day. About
Rs. 25,00,000/- may be required for working capital. The units has every good
scope in the district. Raisen, Udaipura and Begumganj are suitable places to
set up such units.
I.

Lemon Squash and Syrup:


Lemon is one of the major horticulture crop in Raisen district. Bareli and
Udaipura and Silcani Tehsils are major producers of lemon. More over the
adjacent Hoshangabad district is one of the leading producers of lemon in MP.
During 1997-98 about 32 hectare land was under active cultivation of Lemon
and its production was about 512 tonne. Lemon produced in the district is
being sent to other parts of the state for direct consumption. In this process the
cultivators are not getting suitable price for their product. If the lemon is used
for industrial purpose, say making finned squash and syrups, this will make
value addition to the product and the producers / cultivators will get a good
return. On seeing the large scale production and availability of raw materials
two or three SSI units can beset up in the district. When the cultivate lemon.
Asstt. Director, Department of Horticulature, Raisen has prepared a long term
Master Plant to develop the lemon cultivation in large of scale in Badi and
Bareli areas, which is surrounded by the vindhyachal rang of hills. If the plan is
implemented, lemon production and its bye product will increase
tremendouly and rural people will get employment opportunities.
Globalisation and rapid change in economic structure brought a new
consumption pattern among the people. They prepare to consume tinned food
and drinks. The squash and syrups are having a wide range of market
potentiality as this product can be served not only in home but also in hotels,
restaurants, parties, airways, clubs etc., The scope for export is also bright in
future.
The Industrial unit can be set up with about Rs. 5,00,000 in Plant & machinery
and about Rs. 10,00,000 in working capital. Badi and Silvani development
blocks are most suitable places for setting up of such units.

II.

De-hydrated Ginger/Vegetables:
As the preservation concept is not well development in the country, the public
consumes the vegetables seasonally, which are available in the market. In this
natural process, people are not getting desired vegetable and the
producers/cultivators are not getting suitable price for their products. In the
seasonal production dumped in the market. To overcome this problem,
dehydration concept is developed. The concept of preservation by dehydration

process is to remove the moisture content of a material to a level, where micro


organism may not be able to grow and spoil it. The modern technology
developed at present, gives better flavour, colour aroma for the products. The
dehydrated vegetables are used as instant vegetables to prepare food items,
noodles soups, snacks and fast foods. The people through out the year like
these types of vegetables. This type of vegetables mostly used by the star
hotels, restaurants, for marriage and party cooking.
Dried ginger is having vast scope of marketing, as it is useful in medicines.
Raisen is one of the leading districts in horticulture crops. Vegetable like,
Potato, Tomato, Bringal, Cauliflower, Ladies finger, green peas etc. are
produced in the district. About 10,000 tones one vegetable produced in the
district every year. About 35 tonnes of ginger is also produced in the district
annually.
Availability of raw material and bright market condition is an encouragement
for the entrepreneurs to set up such units. Udaipura and Raisen will be ideal
places to establish such units. Asingle unit may require Rs. 25,00,000
investment in Plant & Machinery and Rs. 10,00,000 in working capital. The
product should conform to the specification laid down in FPO 1995.
a.

Mineral Based Industries:


Mineral sources available in the district are limited and most of the
minerals fall under minor mineral category. There is no scope for any
industries on the basis of Minerals.

b.

Live Stock based Industries:


The district is vast natural resources like forestland and grazing land.
Milk production in India is registered continues growth for the last few
decades. Generally, the milk supply in Raisen district is less. However,
in Raisen district, the milk animals now available is poor in quality and
its milk cntribution is limited. Therefore, if the variety of cattle replaced
by high milk bearing varieties, dairy development has a scope in the
district, particulary in Bareeli and silvani tehsils.

c.

Fisheries:
Fishing activities in the district is limited. The production of fishers in
the district is being consumed by the consumers of the district and
excess production goes to Bhopal, Sagar and other places for direct
consumption. There is no scope for industrial use at present in the
district.

d.

Forest based Industries:


All development blocks of the district is having enough forest land Total
forest area in the district is 333236.857 hectare, out of which about 31.7
% forest land is in Goherganj Tehsil followed by Silvani tehsil which
accounts for 19.07 %.
The district is having enough forest wealth, wherein production of
Building woods, fire woods, valuable medicinal plants, Tendu leaves
etc., are reported. Sects of population depend on the forest for their
livelihood. More industries can come up on forest based products,
which will help to improve the employment generation in the rural
areas.

a.

Wooden furniture, Door/Window frame:


As the increasing urbanisation and easy availability of loan
facilities, aware the people for constructing their own house in
the recent past. As Raisen is developing district and having a
comparative advantage of Bhopal construction activities are
increasing day by day in the district. Therefore, the
requirements of furniture and door/window frames are rapidly
increasing. The carpenters are facing a lot of problems from the
forest department officials on using the woods for
manufacturing building materials and furniture. If the
restrictions relaxed suitably the carpentry work will provide
employment opportunities to a larg number of people.

b.

Apple Culture:
Awareness on natural products and herbal medicines, the use of
honey in various medicinal formulations and direct
consumption of honey has increased tremendously worldwide.
Honey a Nautral and can be consumed fresh in canned state.
Raisen district has a vast area under forest and on the seeing
the demand, is under floriculture is also increasing gradually.
Therefore, the apple culture is one of the potential areas, which
may generate a large number of employment opportunities in
the rural areas. Badi, Bareli Sultanpur and Udaipura areas are
suitable for apie culture.
c. Honey Processing Plant:
Demand for pure and good quality of honey is rapidly
worldwide. On seeing the trend, it is suggested to establish a
honey processing Plant in the forest borne area of Badi of
Bareli. Marketing of honey is easy. It can be tinned in various
quantity, say 100Ml, 200Ml, 500Ml so on., for the use of different
category of consumers.
The unit can be established with a small investment in Plant &
Machinery and working capital. 50-100 kg honey may be
processed and marketed every day.

A.

Demand Based Industries:


i) Bakery Industry:
In India bakery industry is not new one, but for the few decade the consumption of
bakery items has increased tremendously. The main raw materials for the Bread and
bakery items are Wheat flour, which is abundantly available in the district. The survey
team visited many urban and semi-urban areas and noted that the bakery items mostly
supplied from Bhopal.
The products can be marketed not only in the district but also in the adjacent district of
Bhopal, Hoshangabad and Sagar. The unit producing about one tone per day can be
established in Raisen, because the supply of product to the State capital will be easy.
The unit can be established with the investment in Plant & Machinery of Rs.30 lakhs
and Rs. about 20 lacks in plant & machinery.
ii) Paper Shopping Bag

Awareness about the plastic and worldwide objection on using he plastic bags is
mounting up day. Therefore, the replacement for this outgoing product is to be found
out. Several states in India have already banned the use of non-industrial plastics,
which are more hazardous and making more damage to the environment. Eco-friendly
products help to keep the balance of nature. Paper bags are not new to out country.
The demand for the paper made shopping bags are increasing tremendously as the
vacancy created by the plastic bags are wide. The unit can be set up with the
investment of Rs.7 to 8 lakhs in plant & Machinery. There is a fair scope for paper bags
industry in Raisen district. This type of units can beset up at any place in the district.
However, Raisen and Goherganj Tehsils are having comparative advantage of
transportation and nearby Bhopal market.
iii) Cold Storage:
Raisen is one of the leading districts in producing different varieties of fruits and
vegetables. As these products are perishable in nature, the cultivators are compelled
to sell their produce on the prevailing market price. Consequently, the producers are
not getting suitable price for their produce.
To over come these problems, development block wise cold storage facility may be
provided. Each and every development block requires one or two cold storage units. A
single mini cold storage unit may require Rs.60,00,000/- in plant & machinery.
a.

Textile Products including Hosiery:


As the district is very near to Bhopal and Bairagarh cloth market, the Garments
market is dumped with the products. Therefore, Garments/Hosiery industry in
the district may not prove as a potential one.

b.

Chemical Products:
i) Surgical Cotton Bandage:
Surgical bandage is taken in to the medical use. Surgical bandage are the
products manufactured from white bleached cotton gauge cloth of suitable
quality and size. The width may be varied from 2.5 cm to 15 cm and length is 3
to 4 meters.
The products are packed in different quantity and marketed. Now a days
demand for the product is increasing tremendously and also have a good
scope for export. The unit may require about rs.25 lakhs in Plant & Machinery
to produce about 3 quintal per annum.

e.

Mechanical Products:
i) Stay Wire:
The stay wire is used to support the electric poles. This is produced from the
Galvanized steel wires which is protected from the rust. This type of units can be
ancillary units for MPEB. This type of units are having a vast scope in the district. The
production process in very easy. Galvanized wires are passed through the automatic
machines available for this use with the help of wire stand to make them stay. In this
process, the wire is automatically twisted and stay wire is being made.

This type mini unit may require Rs. 4,00,000/- in Plant & machinery as investment and
an equal amount for working capital. Raw material is galvanized wire measuring 3.15
mm to 4.00 mm.
This type of units should be established out of the city / town limit to avoid to noise
pollution.
ii) Aluminum Fabricators:
Aluminum fabricated items like doors, windows, staircases, hand rails, railings for
verandas, corridors etc., have become the standard accepted features in most modern
buildings. The use of Aluminum fabricated items in business and office complexes are
very extensive for functional as well as decorative purpose. Similarly in residential
buildings also aluminum doors, windows, railings, grills etc., are used extensively.
Aluminum has many advantages such as light weight, strength, corrosion resistance,
durability, easy in fabrication, attractive appearance and easy maintenance, make the
product popular in all respect.
One or two aluminum fabrication unit can be set up in the district ton meet the
demand. Such unit may require Rs. 12,00,000/- investment in Plantr & Machinery and
Rs. 6,00,000/- in working capital.
iii) Other Fabricated Items:
Raisen district is one of the fast developing district in the state. Construction of
residence, hotels, government offices in increasing day by day. Therefore, the demand
for fabricated items such as gates, grills window frames, doors, doorframes etc., that is
having a vast scope in the district, Several units can be set up in the district.
Traditional agricultural implements are used in the district. On implementing modern
methods the demand for fabrication works such as agricultural implements, tractor
trolleys etc., will increase. These type of units are having more potentiality in the
district.
