He also appreciated the efforts of Industries Minister of J&K, Chander Prakash Ganga in the matter.

He said that the J&K State is a chiefly consumer state where the Industry has to chiefly depend upon the outside support for the supply of the raw material as well as the manpower required for the purpose. He also mentioned about the limited market for the locally produced good. The trading and the manufacturing was adversely hit in the region after the implementation of the law, which has now been rectified by the timely intervention of the Central as well as the State Governments giving relief to the industrial sector of the State, he added.
