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.
