The Department of Industries (O/o the Commissioner of Industry Udyog Sadan, 419 FIE, Patparganj Delhi, 110092 ) is nodal agency to plan, promote and develop industries in Delhi. Since Delhi is the National Capital and a Metropolis, the thrust is on encouraging modern Hi-tech, sophisticated export-oriented small scale industries in Delhi as well as those industries which do not stretch its meager resources such as land, water and electricity. The small scale sector is a free sector.
No prior registration is required to set up any small scale unit. However, the setting up of a small scale unit is subject to location restrictions since these can only be set up in conforming areas. House-hold industries can be set up even in residential areas provided they conform to set norms.
