Regional disparities in industrial development: A geographical study of Haryana


Priti Kumari

Industrial development has been a major factor in progress of any country. However balanced industrial development in all parts of land has been a rare case. Industrial development generates employment opportunities, promotes urbanisation and other facilities. But imbalanced development leads to disparities on sectoral and spatial basis. These imbalances have led to allegations of policy discrimination on state by various stake holders in society. Present study has tried to make an analysis of disparities in industrial development at district level in Haryana. The major parameters for this study have been number of factories, number of industrial workers and industrial production. Not only there are variations in number of factories but also there are variations in kinds of production involved at district level. Physical and other factors seem to be more responsible for this imbalance. It has been found that some districts like Faridabad, Gurgaon, Panipat, Yamunanagar and Sonepat are better developed than others. Districts like Mewat, Palwal, Mahendergarh, Fatehabad, Kurukshetra etc. are seriously lacking in industrial development. Secondary data from statistical abstracts of Haryana have been used for the purpose. ARC GIS 9.3 and MS Office software have been used for mapping and statistical analysis respectively.
