The government has been implementing various schemes for promotion of industries, and as such those in the industrial sectors need to work hard to get the benefits which have been implemented for the promotion of industries, he said.
The Commerce and Industries, additional director also said that those in the industrial sector need to urge the concern authorities to provide the requirements for an industry.
