Arora, chairing a meeting of the newly-appointed chairmen, vice-chairmen, directors concerned with districts and members of various boards and corporations, said that the Industry and Commerce Department is working as a team to ensure that the permissions sought regarding establishing new industrial units are accorded in time.

He asked the new appointed chairmen to exhort the youth of the State to start their own micro, small and medium enterprises.
