High consumption of meat in the Kashmir Valley makes a huge quantity of raw material available to the leather sector, in the form of hides and skins. This offers a tremendous scope for the expansion of the industrial base in leather sector.

This was stated by Mr. S.S. Salathia, the Minister for Industry and Commerce, who informed about the government's Tannery Factory that was established at Shatleng and is not functioning at present.

The Minister further informed that a duly developed zone has been allocated at the leather zone at IGC Lassipora by J&K SIDCO. Allotment of land in this leather zone is exclusively for leather related manufacturing activities.

A Common Leather Effluent Treatment Plan (CETP) is also being established which would be utilized as a common facility by various leather processing units, both existing and those to be set up in the future.

This CETP is being established with the latest technology in technical collaboration with the Council for Leather Research Institute, Chennai and it will be equipped with the technology to treat effluents.

Besides, the government is proposing the development of a leather cluster to the Ministry of MSME, in order to organize the artisans and to avail the benefits of the latest technology.

There are two leather based ventures, which have been set up at IGC Lassipora in Pulwama; along with this more five units have been allotted land in the leather zone here to establish the tannery units.

The youngsters and the unemployed people have been motivated to establish the industrial ventures in this industry.
