In order to expedite the
growth of medium, small and tiny industries in a
decentralized manner, the Government of India launched the
scheme for developing industrial estates/areas in the
fifties. For promoting the growth of industrial activities
in the state, state Government initiated action plan for
development of vast plot of land at Dukli near Agartala into
an Industrial Area in 1980s.
The responsibility and maintenance of Dukli Industrial area
was handed over to Tripura Industrial Development
Corporation Limited (TIDCL) in 1982-1983. Initially 37.17
acres in Dukli and Madhuban Mouja was allotted to TIDC for
development and subsequently TIDC acquired further lands. At
present, the total availability of land is 44.88 acres.
The area enjoys locational advantage like 5 KM from the
National Highway, proximity to State capital Agartala,
proper transport and communication facilities, close to the
Agartala railway station, nearness to ONGC for gas pipe
line, proximity to Land Customs Station at Akhaura etc.and
other requisite infrastructure facilities.
The whole area has been divided into 4(four) blocks namely-
A, B, C and D. All the blocks are linked by facilities like
internal roads, electricity, water connection, gas pipelines
etc. The category of units operating in the estate are
mainly engineering units, foundry works, plastic mfg. unit,
rubber based unit, chemical based industries etc. TIDC has
one site office at Block-D covering an area of about 500
sq.ft. TIDC has also taken up steps to acquire more land
adjacent to the existing estate apart from developing other
necessary infrastructures due to the growing demand for
setting up industries in the estate.
