Which local industries in semi-rural areas can provide job opportunities for the unemployed?
- Setting up dal mills to procure and process pulses and then sell them in the cities.
- Opening a cold storage could give an opportunity for farmers to store their products like potatoes and onions and sell them when the price is good.
- In villages near forest areas we can start honey collection centres, where farmers can come and sell wild pure honey.
- It is also possible to set up industries that process vegetables and agricultural produce like potato, sweet potato, rice, wheat, tomato, fruits, which can be sold in outside markets.This will provide employment in industries located in semi-rural areas and not necessarily in large urban centres.
