Industrial Policy in Punjab: A Case Study of Sundar Industrial Estate

Punjab’s industrial policy, industrial enterprises and particularly
industrial estates are in a dire need of reassessment, redesigning
and rejuvenation. The case of Sunder Industrial Estate exemplifies
the dilemmas and promise of industrialization in Punjab. In
this preliminary and exploratory study Ms. Hajra Zafar, Research
Associate at CPPG, has made a critical appraisal of infrastructure,
identified challenges that entrepreneurs face, and the facilitation
that the Punjab government could provide. The study highlights
some of the successful models from the region, which can be instructive
and helpful for improving the functioning of Sundar Industrial
Estate.
