The Salem District Small-Scale and Tiny Industries Association (SADISSTIA) has begun a study to carry out a survey to identify the potential entrepreneurs who are interested in setting up micro, small and medium enterprises with stainless steel as raw material.
Association president K. Mariappan invited registration of entrepreneurs for further processing. He said that preliminary discussions to set up an industrial estate in 100 acres exclusively for the downstream industries, which could use stainless steel products manufactured by the Salem Steel Plant were on.
He had already discussed about the formation of the proposed industrial estate under Public-Private Partnership scheme with the Salem Steel Plant management and the District MSME Association and also by involving either the Tamil Nadu Small Industries Development Corporation Limited (SIDCO) or the Tamil Nadu State Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd..
For this purpose, a proposal had to be submitted to the authorities to justify the requirement of the developed lands for allotment. The study would collect information about the total number of beneficiaries and entrepreneurs interested in availing this scheme.
An awareness seminar would be organised for this purpose on February 14 at Sona College of Technology.
Those interested can approach the Salem District Small Scale Industries Association, opposite Alagapuram police station, for registration and for collecting details on or before February 10, Mr. Mariappan says.
