Small scale industry (SSI) though sounds small but has a pivotal role in the sustenance of a nation's economy. But unfortunately many traditional SSI have gradually plunged towards darkness and lost in the past. Jari industry is one of the traditional SSI existing in India, especially in Howrah, Bengal. The study portrays number of problems appearing forth in the smooth journey of a progressed rural economy depending on the jari industry in the context of Howrah district. Unlike many other traditional crafts, the jari industry gave the bent down torso of rural economy a steadiness to stand against in the battle with their underdeveloped standard of life. But jari industry, a very old but important in terms of its popularity and low pollution, is under the threat of destruction like many others in the past, and puts up a question whether the vintage SSI can be saved from being extinct or not.

Abstract


Small scale industry (SSI) though sounds small but has a pivotal role in the sustenance of a nation's economy. But unfortunately many traditional SSI have gradually plunged towards darkness and lost in the past. Jari industry is one of the traditional SSI existing in India, especially in Howrah, Bengal. The study portrays number of problems appearing forth in the smooth journey of a progressed rural economy depending on the jari industry in the context of Howrah district. Unlike many other traditional crafts, the jari industry gave the bent down torso of rural economy a steadiness to stand against in the battle with their underdeveloped standard of life. But jari industry, a very old but important in terms of its popularity and low pollution, is under the threat of destruction like many others in the past, and puts up a question whether the vintage SSI can be saved from being extinct or not.
