Comparison of Small Scale Industries with Large and Medium Industries

Table 9 gives the gross fixed capital/employee and related figures for high tension consumers. The GFC/employee varies from Rs. 13,464 to 35,645. This shows that the variation between SSI and these industries is not very high especially if we look at the low end of the investment/employee. The table also shows that industries with a contract electricity demand of 100-250 KVA have a higher employment potential and lower energy consumption figures. These details are for the year 1978.
