Though cotton and jute are grown in very small quantities but there are four cotton textile/spinning and three jute mills operating in the district. Other important units are one sugar mill, two cement units, one soda ash and two vegetable ghee manufacturing units. The existing units reflect good prospects for other integrated industries like hosiery, bed sheets, jute floor mats, and machine made carpets, polypropylene woven bags, etc.

Demand Based Industry
