Rajasekara Murthi and Naresh Gujral. Dr. Ashwani Kumar, Minister of State for Industry, Shri Ajay Shankar, Secretary, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion; and Shri G.K.

While welcoming the Members Shri Kamal Nath explained that the primary responsibility for development of infrastructure vests with the State Government and State Industrial Development Corporations provide basic infrastructure to industrial units by setting up industrial estates in self-contained geographical areas.
