    Very nice information shared here. I would like to add that Sugar Industry is situated in Una and Ponta Sahib in Himachal Pradesh. Besides this, the state is also famous for handlooms and textiles. Baddi in Himachal Pradesh is a major industrial hub, where most of the products are manufactured.
