Uttar Pradesh


Uttar Pradesh provides employment to nearly one-third of the state's total workforce in its textiles and sugar-refining industries.

Other prominent industries in Uttar Pradesh include vegetable oil, jute, and cement. The Union Government has established a number of large factories that manufacture heavy equipment, machinery, steel, aircraft, telephone, electronics equipment, and fertilizers.

An oil refinery at Mathura and the development of coalfields in the southeastern district of Mirzapur are also major Union Government projects. The state government promotes medium and small-scale industries.
