To become economically self-reliant
and to diversify its activities in tune with the changing times the
Haryana Khadi & Village Industries Board has taken many new initiatives.
1. Consignment Agency
The Haryana Khadi & Village Industries Board has started the consignment
work at Faridabad by taking the consignment agency from Hindustan Zinc
Ltd., Sterlite Industries Ltd., M. M. T. C. and Hindustan Copper Ltd.
The work of Haryana Khadi & Village Industries Board at these agencies
is to sell the valuable metals like Zinc, Copper, Lead, Tin, Nickel
etc. supplied by the above companies to private large, medium and small
industries as well as to govt. purchasers. Haryana Khadi & Village
