SALT INDUSTRY IN TAMIL NADU: A REVIEW

. Robin Brahma

Abstract


Industrial growth and development have a vital role in the economic development of the country, especially the developing country like India. The salt industry is one of the oldest industries in the country and provides livelihoods for millions of poor people throughout the country. The government of India has made significant efforts on the overall development of the industry since independence as it is central subject to the constitution. This article attempts to examine the current state of Salt Industry in Tamil Nadu. Despite the remarkable growth of the country’s salt industry, it has been found that the current position of the salt industry of the state is critical because both salt producers and workers face various problems even after many schemes implemented for the overall development of the industry. A detailed study needs to be done for the state’s salt industry, and effectiveness of schemes.
