which are not only popular in the other parts of the country but also are exported
abroad. The manufacturing of carpets and durries and their subsequent marketing
and selling give many job opportunities to many people. The city is the biggest
center in the country for producing low priced blankets. It is a traditional supplier
of barrack blankets to the armed forces of the nation.
The blankets are low priced but high in quality and can be supplied to many places
apart from the army. The supply of blankets is a very viable proposition for the
people. Since 1947 Achar Pachranga is a well known pickle brand. The pickle is very
famous in nearby areas of the city. But the demand of pickle is present around the
world as Indians have settled in all parts of the world. Thus, there is a potential

where the market has not been tapped.
