|PROJECT||Study on Development Possibilities at the Appropriate Technology Research & Development Centre (ATRDC), Pannala|
|CLIENT||Industrial Development Board|
|BACKGROUND||Originally, the ATRDC was established with the objectives to develop appropriate technologies which are suitable to be developed by other small industrialists to cater to the needs of the agricultural and industrial community in the country and also to identify the possibilities for training of skilled people to go into the manufacture of such appropriate technology equipment and machinery identified by the Centre.
However, this has not happened during the last couple of years and the resources available at the Centre have not been utilized substantially.
Therefore, it was requested to inspect the Centre and give IDB a report on the possibilities for improvement in the above areas.
