  • Food – Open a restaurant, sweet shop, a production unit for preserved foods or even snacks; it is sure to go a long way.

  • Paper –You could make exercise books, registers and recycled note books.

  • Chemical Products – Products like wax candles, laundry soap, safety matches, incense sticks, hand sanitizers, etc. are made with chemical compositions.

  • Glass Products – Production of glassware like crockery, show pieces and even bangles is always in demand.

  • Wood and Wooden Products –Presently the wood business is a raging small scale industry which churns out furniture like chairs, tables, wardrobes and cabinets.

  • Clothes –This industry is destined only to bloom. It ranges from fabric manufacturing, garment production to trading of designer clothes.

  • Poultry – This industry does not exactly involve active production. But rearing in and maintenance of poultry farms is a sure shot money winner.

  • Leather – Invest either in production of leather or manufacturing of leather accessories like belts, footwear, wallets, etc.

Food business is the best bet! From a small thela, dhaaba to a decent restaurant...it usually finds customers. Just a watch on hygiene and taste. Well, some people don`t even mind that. However, location plays a key role. Small to medium sized dhaabas fare really well in and around industrial / commercial centres.

Small scale industries or Laghu Udyog is gaining much importance in India. Small scale industries are those which have a budget less than five crores. A small scale industry is the best way to start a business and become an entrepreneur. For setting up a small scale industry, you will need infrastructure and ample fund to set up and run your business. Besides, you will also need to understand your customer base and their requirements and the market conditions of your region. Furthermore, you will also need to understand the statutory requirements specified by the Government of India for such a business.

You can refer to these links to understand the requirements of such a business http://business.gov.in/manage_business/small_scale_industries.php, http://laghu-udyog.gov.in/publications/books/ssi02.htm



The Government of India has set up many funding agencies and banks that can help you raise the capital you require for such a business. Some of the recommended small scale industry sectors are food, mineral water, healthcare equipments etc.

Can someone please share the formalities of availing a fund from nationalized banks for setting up an SSI?
