Small Industries Development Organization – SIDO:
SIDO was established by the Act of Parliament No. 28/1973. Its main objective is to assist potential clients in the establishment of the small industries in the country. The main activities include training and advisory services, provision of work places, loans, marketing, procurement of machinery and raw materials. Its objective was to develop the small industry sector in India. It was expected to fulfill a very wide range of functions, from policy formulation to direct support to industries, to hands-on involvement in the establishment of SMEs in both rural and urban areas. Some of the best-known activities are the Industrial Estates, Technology Development Centers, Training cum Production Centers, hire purchase schemes for equipment, technology development, technology transfer through twinning arrangements and exchanges with industries in Europe and Asia, and direct marketing. These programmes were strongly supported by the Government and by donors such as SIDA, the World Bank, and the Governments of the Netherlands, India and Hungary. In the context of a centrally planned economy, the virtual absence of a private sector, and an initially very low level of industrial activity, SIDO's efforts made a key and well recognized contribution to the development of the country. SIDO's role as the Government's instrument for small-scale industrialization had been redefined to respond to the political and economic changes. In 1988, SIDO started a process of restructuring aiming at improved effectiveness and efficiency as well as long -term sustainability.
