1. Background and Necessity:

The Industrial Policy of Mizoram State was first notified on 15.3.1989 to give direction to the strategy for Industrial development of the State. It laid stress on reducing shifting cultivation by encouraging a shift from primary to secondary sectors while protecting the Socio-Cultural and ethnic identity of the indigenous enterprise of Mizoram. The intention of the Government in that policy was not Industrial growth per se but was rather directed towards all-round development of the people of Mizoram with special focus on upliftment of indigenous people and also towards giving them gainful employment and self employment opportunities in the Industries and allied sectors. Significant growth has been experienced as a result of this policy direction during 8th Plan period.
