The Indian Government donates Rs.230 million to set up an industrial estate at Atchuvely, at which 30 industrial ventures flourished before the war, said the Secretary of the Traditional Industries and Small Scale Enterprises Development Ministry. The industrial estate at Atchuvely was destroyed by terrorists activities that prevailed in the area.
Mass Holdings, Oris Apparels Lanka, Timax and Shore to Shore (Pvt.) Ltd. will invest on 25 acres of land out of 65 acres of land. The balance 40 acres of land will be leased to small scale industries said Mr.P.S.Moorthy.
He emphasises that once the industrial estate starts functioning more than 3000 employment opportunities would be created and the people in the area will be benefited.
