Welcome to SIMA

The UT of Dadra & Nagar Haveli was under Portuguese regime and this Territory was liberated in 1954 and became part of India. Since then our Territory is governed by Central Government through Home Ministry. Being dominated by Tribal population, various schemes for welfare and benefit of tribal have been introduced and implemented. With view to generate employment, industrialization was initiated by local Administration and first industrial estate in form of Danudyog was established in the year in 1965. But inflow of industry was very slow as there was lack of proper infrastructure, connectivity, transportation and availability of skilled manpower within territory.

In 1983 the Central Government introduced and extended Sales Tax Act in our Territory whereby growth of industries was bound to be affected badly, but the pioneer industrialists of our area represented to Government of India and with their efforts the Govt. of India declared 15 years Sales Tax exemption for the industries to generate employment in this backward area. We are proud that the said pioneer industrialists are still active and are key persons in our Association.

To promote the healthy growth and development of Industries and to encourage friendly feelings and relations amongst the industrial community, particularly of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and foster mutual co-operation amongst those engaged in Industry, Trade and Commerce.
