Industrial Corridors in India
This study identifies industrial corridors (two or more contiguous districts) in India with a special emphasis on their further potential. Using Principal Component Analysis, the study finds that there are five major and three minor industrial corridors in the country. The distribution pattern of these corridors reveals the domination of the western and the southern part of India. The northern region does have a large corridor around Delhi. The western coastal region is found to be the region with the highest level of industrial activity in the country. The southern part of the country has the maximum proportion of districts covered by a major or minor corridor. The eastern region however has only two corridors -- a major one around Calcutta, and a minor one in the north-east.
