Mehatpur Industrial Area was conceived and developed in the early seventies as a most suitable area in Himachal due to its location and nearness to Punjab Markets. This area was well connected by roads as well as by rail. (Rail link was up to Nangal Dam at that time - nearly 6 kms from Mehatpur). The entrepreneurs started coming to this area in mid seventies at a time when government incentives for industrial units were the maximum.|
The need for forming an association of entrepreneurs was felt in early eighties to address the common problem of entrepreneurs - be these relating to construction work, installation of machinery, financial problems or the policy matters related with the state and central government. Mehatpur Industries Association was thus registered originally under the Trade Union Act. Starting with a membership of __ now all the units of Mehatpur Industrial Area, numbering __ are all the members.
In the past our association has the credit of not only solving the problems of members but also helping the government in industrial policy formulation.
