Functions at District Level

District Industries Center (DIC)
The concept of District Industries Center came during the year 1977, when Government of India announced the new Industrial policy on 23.12.1977. It laid special stress on the development of Small Scale, Village and Cottage Industries and indicated that the "District Industries Centre" would be the main focus agency for promotion of small scale, village and cottage industries. In each district, one agency was created to deal with all requirements of small and village industries.
Joint Director is the head of the District Industries Centre. The post of Joint Director is of the rank of Special Deputy Commissioner (Revenue). The Joint Director is assisted by Deputy Director/ Assistant Director, Industrial Promotion Officer and Industrial Extension Officer at taluk level.
