So far as the industrial sector of Dadra & Nagar Haveli is concerned, it is in very critical stage, because industries of Dadra & Nagar Haveli are depending over other states for their requirement of RM & PM etc. as well as sale of their finished goods causing logistical disadvantage.  

Considering the said critical situation, all the three associations had marathon discussion among them and it was concluded by all three association i.e. SIA, DNHIA and SIMA that, it is high time for them to come under one umbrella of Federation of Industries Associations, Silvassa and represent the pathetic condition of the industries to Govt. of India, local administration, elected representatives and the various apex body of such industries association at National Level.
