What is District Industries Center? Loan scheme, application, registration information.

This program named District Industries Center i.e. District Industries Center (DIC) was started in the country in 1978 by the Central Government. The objective of this program was to provide all kinds of facilities and services at one place for the development of large scale small scale industries in rural areas. So that the entrepreneurs engaged in small enterprises in rural areas do not have to face problems.

Apart from this, the main objective of the District Industries Center program was to promote employment by setting up small scale industries in rural areas and small towns. That is to say that the main function of the District Industries Center is to develop such industrial units, which can be capable of generating huge employment opportunities in rural and small towns.

What is District Industries Center?

District Industries Center is an organization established at the district level, which works towards the development and establishment of industries and village industries applicable in that district. When District Industries Center programs were not there, a potential entrepreneur had to make visits to several government agencies to start his own venture or to gather information about it. Due to which there was a waste of his money, time as well as there was a lot of delay in starting the business.

Now many such powers and responsibilities have been given to the District Industries Center by the State Governments in many states. Due to which a potential or existing entrepreneur has started getting all the help he needs in a single agency (DIC).
