In this paper, we are making a water purifier which works on solar

energy. The basic principle behind this project is reverse osmosis. The solar
radiations are collected by solar panel. This energy is then stored in a battery.
The battery is connected to the purification unit through a electromagnetic
relay. The purification unit consists of high pressure motor , reverse osmosis
system and the water tank. The high pressure creates the necessary pressure
required to carry out reverse osmosis. The microcontroller PIC keeps a watch to
the level of water in the water tank and prevents it from over flow. Through this
process we obtain the purified water in the water tank.


The decreasing availability of water has necessitated in the search for

fresh sources of drinking water. The available water in many areas in the
country is brackish, saline or impure. Salinity is a major problem in the coastal
areas of Kutch and Gujarat. In our country pure drinking water is a major
problem in tribal/rural area .There are many processes available for purification
of drinking water like Chlorine tablets , Pot chlorination of wells, Slow and
rapid sand filters, Fluoride removal , Reverse osmosis plants, etc .In this
project, we are making a water purifier which works on solar energy. The basic
principle behind this project is reverse osmosis. We are using solar energy
which is a renewable source, abundant and cheap. In case of power failures, this
purifier will continue to work as solar energy can be stored. Here, we use
microcontroller PIC which prevents the water from over flowing. This purifier
can be used in remote and rural areas where there is no electricity. It can also be
used in places affected by natural disasters. It also reduces the salt content in
sea water. It provides pollution free operation.

The solar radiations are collected by solar panel. This energy is then
stored in a battery through a charge controller. The charge controller prevents
the battery from getting overcharged. The battery is connected to the
purification unit through an electromagnetic relay. The battery is also connected
to a voltage regulator. The voltage regulator converts 24V to +5V,which is
required by the microcontroller. The purification unit consists of high pressure
motor , reverse osmosis system and the water tank. The high pressure creates
the necessary pressure required to carry out reverse osmosis. The
microcontroller PIC keeps a watch to the level of water in the water tank and
prevents it from over flow. Through this process we obtain the purified water in
the water tank.

Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, has been harnessed by
humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar
radiation, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wind and wave
power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available
renewable energy on earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar
energy is used.
Solar powered electrical generation relies on heat engines and photo
voltaic. Solar energy's uses are limited only by human ingenuity. A partial list of
solar applications includes space heating and cooling through solar architecture,
potable water via distillation and disinfection, day lighting, solar hot water,

solar cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes. To
harvest the solar energy, the most common way is to use solar panels.
Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or
active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar
energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar
thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include
orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass
or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

Energy from the Sun

The Earth receives 174 peta watts (PW) of incoming solar radiation
(insulation) at the upper atmosphere. Approximately 30% is reflected back to
space while the rest is absorbed by clouds, oceans and land masses. The
spectrum of solar light at the Earth's surface is mostly spread across the visible
and near-infrared ranges with a small part in the near-ultraviolet.

Earth's land surface, oceans and atmosphere absorb solar radiation, and
this raises their temperature. Warm air containing evaporated water from the
oceans rises, causing atmospheric circulation or convection. When the air
reaches a high altitude, where the temperature is low, water vapor condenses
into clouds, which rain onto the Earth's surface, completing the water cycle. The
latent heat of water condensation amplifies convection, producing atmospheric
phenomena such as wind, cyclones and anti-cyclones. Sunlight absorbed by the
oceans and land masses keeps the surface at an average temperature of 14 °C.
By photosynthesis green plants convert solar energy into chemical energy,

which produces food, wood and the biomass from which fossil fuels are

The total solar energy absorbed by Earth's atmosphere, oceans and land
masses is approximately 3,850,000 exajoules (EJ) per year. In 2002, this was
more energy in one hour than the world used in one year. Photosynthesis
captures approximately 3,000 EJ per year in biomass. The amount of solar
energy reaching the surface of the planet is so vast that in one year it is about
twice as much as will ever be obtained from all of the Earth's non-renewable
resources of coal, oil, natural gas, and mined uranium combined.Solar energy
can be harnessed in different levels around the world. Depending on a
geographical location the closer to the equator the more "potential" solar energy
is available.

Applications of solar technology

Solar energy refers primarily to the use of solar radiation for practical
ends. However, all renewable energies, other than geothermal and tidal, derive
their energy from the sun.
Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive or active
depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute sunlight. Active solar
techniques use photovoltaic panels, pumps, and fans to convert sunlight into
useful outputs. Passive solar techniques include selecting materials with
favorable thermal properties, designing spaces that naturally circulate air, and
referencing the position of a building to the Sun. Active solar technologies
increase the supply of energy and are considered supply side technologies,
while passive solar technologies reduce the need for alternate resources and are
generally considered demand side technologies.


A solar panel (photovoltaic module or photovoltaic panel) is a packaged,

interconnected assembly of solar cells, also known as photovoltaic cells. The
solar panel can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system to
generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential applications.

Because a single solar panel can produce only a limited amount of power,
many installations contain several panels. A photovoltaic system typically
includes an array of solar panels, an inverter, and sometimes a battery and
interconnection wiring.

Theory and construction

Solar panels use light energy (photons) from the sun to generate
electricity through the photovoltaic effect. The structural (load carrying)
member of a module can either be the top layer or the back layer. The majority
of modules use wafer-based crystalline silicon cells or thin-film cells based on
cadmium telluride or silicon. The conducting wires that take the current off the
panels may contain silver, copper or other conductive (but generally not
magnetic) transition metals.
The cells must be connected electrically to one another and to the rest of the
system. Cells must also be protected from mechanical damage and moisture.
Most solar panels are rigid, but semi-flexible ones are available, based on thin-
film cells.

Electrical connections are made in series to achieve a desired output

voltage and/or in parallel to provide a desired current capability.

Separate diodes may be needed to avoid reverse currents, in case of

partial or total shading, and at night. The p-n junctions of mono-crystalline
silicon cells may have adequate reverse current characteristics that these are not
necessary. Reverse currents waste power and can also lead to overheating of
shaded cells. Solar cells become less efficient at higher temperatures and
installers try to provide good ventilation behind solar panels.

Some recent solar panel designs include concentrators in which light is

focused by lenses or mirrors onto an array of smaller cells. This enables the use
of cells with a high cost per unit area (such as gallium arsenide) in a cost-
effective way.

Depending on construction, photovoltaic panels can produce electricity

from a range of frequencies of light, but usually cannot cover the entire solar
range (specifically, ultraviolet, infrared and low or diffused light). Hence much
of the incident sunlight energy is wasted by solar panels, and they can give far
higher efficiencies if illuminated with monochromatic light. Therefore another
design concept is to split the light into different wavelength ranges and direct
the beams onto different cells tuned to those ranges. This has been projected to

be capable of raising efficiency by 50%. The use of infrared photovoltaic cells
has also been proposed to increase efficiencies, and perhaps produce power at

Currently the best achieved sunlight conversion rate (solar panel

efficiency) is around 21% in commercial products, typically lower than the
efficiencies of their cells in isolation. The Energy Density of a solar panel is the
efficiency described in terms of peak
power output per unit of surface area, commonly expressed in units of Watts per
square foot (W/ft2). The most efficient mass-produced solar panels have energy
density values of greater than 13 W/ft2 (140 W/m2).


When two solutions of different concentrations are separated by a semi-

permeable membrane, solvent (water) flows from a region of lower
concentration to higher concentration. This process is called osmosis. This
driving force in this called osmotic pressure. If a hydrostatic pressure in excess
of osmotic pressure is applied on the higher concentration side, the solvent flow
is reversed i.e., solvent flows from higher concentration to lower concentration.
This process is called reverse osmosis. Thus, in the process of reverse osmosis
pure water is separated from salt water.



 Cost of production is very low.

 It is an advanced and latest technology.
 Production time is very less.
 It improves the efficiency of the host machine tremendously.


Embedded System is a small computer system that is generally hidden

inside equipment [machine, electrical appliances, or electronic gadget] to
increase the intelligence of the equipment for better or more efficient
functionality. This kind of system always involves both the software and the
hardware co-development.
Embedded Systems are often easier understood in terms of Smart
devices, intelligent or automated equipments. Embedded Systems do not need a
complete operating system, but only the basic functionalities of an operating
system. Hence Embedded System can be defined as follows:

 It is embedding or inserting human intelligence by means of software into a

Microcontroller chip and designing hardware for the purpose.
 It is a combination of software and hardware with automatic working
without user interface.

 It performs specific functions in host systems like satellites, remote
controllers, televisions, robotic vehicles, ATMs, pagers, laser printers,
missile launch systems, etc.
 It is a closed loop system i.e., change in the input will not affect the output.

An embedded system is a combination of computer hardware, software

and additional mechanical parts, designed to perform a specific function .An
embedded system is designed to do a specific task within a given time frame,
repeatedly, without human interaction. Embedded system do not need a
complete operating system, but only the basic functionalities of an operating
system in a real-time environment, that is, a real time operating system.
(RTOS). Frequently, embedded system does not have a user interface.

Application Area of embedded system include aerospace/defense

systems, telecommunication equipments and switches, mobile computing,
broadcast, automotives, industrial process control and monitoring, medical
electronics, consumer electronics, etc. Main hardware components of an
embedded system are microprocessor or micro controller, and supporting ICs.
The combination of micro-controller and ICs are application specific.
Commonly used microprocessors include the following. Motorola 680XX
series, IBM PowerPC series processors, MIPS processors, Intel 386 and
compatible CPUs, ARM processors, Sun SPARC series, etc. Embedded systems
need memory for storing programs and data, and usually programs are stored in
ROM or EPROM. Often these systems have a serial port network interface, I/O
interface for interacting with sensors and actuators in the case of process
controlling systems.


Microcontroller is a general-purpose device which has an in-built

CPU, Memory and peripherals, which make it, function as a mini computer.

Both Microcontroller and microprocessor can be employed for designing

products or applications in Embedded System. But Microcontroller has its own
advantages over microprocessor. They are as follows:

 For transfer of data from external memory to the CPU,

microprocessor needs many operational codes. But in Microcontroller, one
or two codes are enough.
 Microcontrollers have many bit-handling instructions, but microprocessors
have only one or two.
 Microcontrollers have built-in peripherals whereas microprocessors lack in-
built peripherals.
 Microcontroller work faster than microprocessor because of rapid movement
of bits within the chip.
 Microcontrollers have simple circuit structure compared to microprocessor.
 Microcontrollers have only 35 instructions whereas microprocessors have
 Microcontrollers are costly when compared with microprocessor.
 Microcontroller can function as a mini computer without any additional parts.
 Microcontroller instructions are simple, single word instructions.


This powerful yet easy-to-program (only 35 single word instructions) 8-

bit microcontroller packs Microchip's powerful PIC architecture into an 40- or
44-pin package and is upwards compatible with the PIC16C5X, PIC12CXXX
and PIC16C7X devices. The PIC16F917 features 256 bytes of EEPROM data
memory, self programming, an ICD, 2 Comparators, 8 channels of 10-bit
Analog-to-Digital (A/D) converter, 2 additional timers, the synchronous serial
port can be configured as either 3-wire Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI™) or the
2-wire Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C™) bus and a Universal Asynchronous
Receiver Transmitter (USART). All of these features make it ideal for more
advanced level A/D applications in automotive, industrial, appliances and
consumer applications.



The PIC16F917 has 40 pins. These 40 pins can be connected to different ports
like PORTA, PORTB, PORTC, PORTD and PORTE. Apart from these it can be
used for transmitting and receiving different analog signals. Oscillators,

Capacitors, Resistors of varying value can be used with this. The ports in this
can be configured as either an output port or as an input port .If it is configured
as output port either LED’s or LCD’s or seven segment displays can be used to
view the output. If the ports are configured as input then signals can be received
by using keys. These ports have 3-8 pins. Port A, B, C, D has eight pins each
and Port E has only 3 pins. Supply of +5v are used in pins 1 and 32 where a
resistor of 1K is used in pin 1.Similarly pin 31 is used as ground. This IC is
particularly used for storing values in its memory. RTC (Real Time Clock) is an
added feature. When there is a need to use five ports or lesser than five ports we
can always go for 877 since it gives us an advantage to use EEPROM, RTC and
different types of input and output.


There are 4 common oscillator modes that are available on most PIC
micro devices. HS, XT, LP and RC.
These modes support crystals, canned oscillator modules, some
resonators or the use of an external resistor and capacitor as a clock source.
When using a crystal or resonator, other components such as capacitors may be
needed. The XT mode stands for “Crystal” mode and will produce a medium
drive level. It is designed to be used with crystals and resonators of about 1 to 4
MHz XT mode has moderate power consumption since its drive level is lower
than that of HS mode, and because a lower clock speed is produced. Remember,
as a rule: the faster the clock used, the more current the application will require.

Master Clear Resets (MCLR)

Resets can be caused by a signal on the MCLR pin, by powering up

the device, by a Watchdog timer timeout, by a Brown-Out voltage Reset (BOR),
by a software reset instruction, or by a stack overflow or underflow reset. The
MCLR pin can be used to generate a reset. On most PIC micro devices the
MCLR pin is always active. When the MCLR function of the pin is enabled, it
is an active low Schmitt trigger input. This means that to ensure a reset, the
voltage on the pin must be lower than the maximum input low voltage

Every electronic system we need low voltage DC power supply in
different electronic circuits operated in different power supplies, the ratings
depending upon load current and voltage. The load current depending on load
resisistance i.e. load current is inversely proportional to load resistance. So the
matched designation of power supply is very important to every electronic

In this circuits we need two power supplies .All ICs are worked on
regulated DC power 5v with GND. Relay derive worked on dc 12v with
GND .This unit consist of transformer, rectifier, filter & regulator. AC voltage
typically 230v RMS is connected to a transformer which steps that AC voltage
down to the level of the desired Ac voltage .A Diode rectifier then provides a
bridge rectified voltage that is initially filtered by a simple capacitor filter to
produce a DC voltage. This resulting DC voltage usually has some ripple or Ac
voltage variations. A regulator circuit can use this DC input to provide DC
voltage that not only has much less ripple voltage but also remains the same DC
value even the DC voltage varies somewhat,. OR the load connected to the
output DC voltages changes.


Transformer Rectifier Filter Regulator

A Transformer is a static (or stationary) piece of which electric power in
one circuit is transformed into electric power of the same frequency in another
circuit. It can raise or lower the voltage in a circuit but with a corresponding
decrease or increase in current. It works with the principle of mutual induction.
In our project we are using step down transformer for providing a necessary
supply for the electronic circuits .In our project we are using a (12-0) v/500mA.

The Dc level obtained from a sinusoidal input can be improved 100%
using a process called full wave rectification. It uses 4 diodes in a bridge
configuration. From the basic bridge configuration. we see that two diodes
(say D2 &D3) are conducting while the other two diodes (D1&D4) are in “off”
state during the period t = 0 to T/2.Accordingly for the negative of the input the
conducting diodes are D1&D4.Thus the polarity across the load is the same.

The filter circuit used here is the capacitor filter circuit where a capacitor
is connected at the rectifier output, and a DC is obtained across it .The filtered
wave form is essentially a dc voltage with negligible ripples, which is
ultimately fed to the load.

The output voltage from the capacitor is more filtered and finally regulated. The
voltage regulator is a device, which maintains the output voltage constant
irrespective of the changes in supply variations, load variation and temperature
changes. Here we use one fixed voltage regulator namely LM7805.The IC 7805
is a+5 voltage regulator.

3-Terminal Positive Voltage Regulators

The LM341 and LM78MXX series of three-terminal positive voltage

regulators employ built-in current limiting, thermal shutdown, and safe-
operating area protection which make them virtually immune to damage from
output overloads. With adequate heat sinking, they can deliver in excess of 0.5A
output current. Typical applications would include local (on-card) regulators
which can eliminate the noise and degraded performance associated with
single-point regulation.

 Internal thermal overload protection

 Internal short circuit current-limiting
 Output transistor safe
 ea compensation
 Available in TO-220, TO-39, and TO-252 D-PAK packages
 Output voltages of 5V, 12V, and 15V
 Output current in excess of 0.5A


Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) have materials which combine the

properties of both liquids and crystals. Rather than having a melting point, they
have a temperature range within which the molecules are almost as mobile as
they would be in a liquid, but are grouped together in an ordered form similar to
a crystal.

Liquid crystal display

An LCD consists of two glass panels, with the liquid crystal material
sand witched in between them. The inner surface of the glass plates are coated
with transparent electrodes which define the character, symbols or patterns to be
displayed polymeric layers are present in between the electrodes and the liquid
crystal, which makes the liquid crystal molecules to maintain a defined
orientation angle.
One each polarisers are pasted outside the two glass panels. These
polarisers would rotate the light rays passing through them to a definite angle,
in a particular direction When the LCD is in the off state, light rays are rotated
by the two polarisers and the liquid crystal, such that the light rays come out of
the LCD without any orientation, and hence the LCD appears transparent.

When sufficient voltage is applied to the electrodes, the liquid crystal

molecules would be aligned in a specific direction. The light rays passing
through the LCD would be rotated by the polarisers, which would result in
activating / highlighting the desired characters.

The LCD's are lightweight with only a few millimetres thickness. Since
the LCD's consume less power, they are compatible with low power electronic
circuits, and can be powered for long durations. The LCD's don't generate light
and so light is needed to read the display. By using backlighting, reading is
possible in the dark. The LCD's have long life and a wide operating temperature
range. Changing the display size or the layout size is relatively simple which
makes the LCD's more customer friendly.

The LCDs used exclusively in watches, calculators and measuring in

aments are the simple seven-segment displays, having a limited amount of
numeric data. The recent advances in technology have resulted in better
legibility, more information displaying capability and a wider temperature
range. These have resulted in the LCDs being extensively used in
telecommunications and entertainment electronics. The LCDs have even started

replacing the cathode ray tubes (CRTs) used for the display of text and graphics,
and also in small TV applications.

Interface PIN Connection


A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes under control of

another electrical circuit. In the original form, the switch is operated by an
electromagnet to open or close one or many sets of contacts. It was invented by
Joseph Henry in 1835. Because a relay is able to control an output circuit of
higher power than the input circuit, it can be considered, in a broad sense, to be
a form of electrical amplifier.


When a current flows through the coil, the resulting magnetic field
attracts an armature that is mechanically linked to a moving contact. The
movement either makes or breaks a connection with a fixed contact. When the
current to the coil is switched off, the armature is returned by a force
approximately half as on as the magnetic force to its relaxed position. Usually
this is a spring, but gravity is also used commonly in individual motor starters.
Most relays are manufactured to operate quickly. In a low voltage application,
this is to reduce noise. In a high voltage or high current application, this is to
reduce arcing.

If the coil is energized with DC, a diode is frequently installed across the
coil, to dissipate the energy from the collapsing magnetic field at deactivation,
which would otherwise generate a spike of voltage and might cause damage to
circuit components. If the coil is designed to be energized with AC, a small
copper ring can be crimped to the end of the solenoid.

This "shading ring" creates a small out-of-phase current, which increases
the minimum pull on the armature during the AC cycle.

Pole & Throw

SPST - Single Pole Single Throw.

These have two terminals which can be switched on/off. In total, four
terminals when the coil is also included.

SPDT - Single Pole Double Throw.

These have one row of three terminals. One terminal (common) switches
between the other two poles. It is the same as a single change-over switch. In
total, five terminals when the coil is also included.

DPST - Double Pole Single Throw.

These have two pairs of terminals. Equivalent to two SPST switches or
relays actuated by a single coil. In total, six terminals when the coil is also
included. This configuration may also be referred to as DPNO.

DPDT - Double Pole Double Throw.

These have two rows of change-over terminals. Equivalent to two SPDT
switches or relays actuated by a single coil. In total, eight terminals when the
coil is also included.

QPDT - Quadruple Pole Double Throw.
Often referred to as Quad Pole Double Throw, or 4PDT. These have four
rows of change-over terminals. Equivalent to four SPDT switches or relays
actuated by a single coil or two DPDT relays. In total, fourteen terminals when
the coil is also included.

Normally Open (NO), Normally Closed

The contacts can be either Normally Open (NO), Normally Closed (NC),
or change-over (CO) contacts. Normally-open contacts connect the circuit when
the relay is activated; the circuit is disconnected when the relay is inactive. It is
also called Form A contact or "make" contact. Form A contact is ideal for
applications that require to switch a high-current power source from a remote

Normally-closed contacts disconnect the circuit when the relay is

activated; the circuit is connected when the relay is inactive. It is also called
Form B contact or "break" contact. Form B contact is ideal for applications that
require the circuit to remain closed until the relay is activated.
Change-over contacts control two circuits: one normally-open contact and one
normally-closed contact with a common terminal. It is also called Form C
contact or "transfer" contact.

Relay application considerations

Selection of an appropriate relay for a particular application requires

evaluation of many different factors:

Number and type of contacts - normally open, normally closed,
changeover (double-throw) In the case of changeover, there are two types. This
style of relay can be manufactured two different ways. "Make before Break"
and "Break before Make". The old style telephone switch required Make-
before-break so that the connection didn't get dropped while dialing the number.
The railroad still uses them to control railroad crossings.

Rating of contacts - small relays switch a few amperes, large contactors

are rated for up to 3000 amperes, alternating or direct current Voltage rating of
contacts - typical control relays rated 300 VAC or 600 VAC, automotive types
to 50 VDC, special high-voltage relays to about 15,000 V Coil voltage -
machine-tool relays usually 24 VAC or 120 VAC, relays for switchgear may
have 125 V or 250 VDC coils, "sensitive" relays operate on a few mill amperes
Package/enclosure - open, touch-safe, double-voltage for isolation between
circuits, explosion proof, outdoor, oil-splash resistant Mounting - sockets, plug
board, rail mount, panel mount, through-panel mount, enclosure for mounting
on walls or equipment Switching time - where high speed is required "Dry"
contacts - when switching very low level signals, special contact materials may
be needed such as gold-plated contacts

Contact protection - suppress arcing in very inductive circuits Coil

protection - suppress the surge voltage produced when switching the coil
current Isolation between coil circuit and contacts Aerospace or radiation-
resistant testing, special quality assurance Accessories such as timers, auxiliary
contacts, pilot lamps, test buttons Regulatory approvals Stray magnetic linkage
between coils of adjacent relays on a printed circuit board.


The electromagnetic relays give a transition from ON to OFF when the

coil is energized or reenergized. The main feature in a relay is contacts that
close or open an electric circuit under the control of electromagnet.

We use the UN scaled general purpose relay and is very simple in design.





When a DC current is passed through a coil the iron core get magnetized
and attracting armature towards it. The moving contact is attached to the
armature. Therefore the switches can operated with the help of this make

Typical switching capacities

Normal duty contacts : 5 amps 24Vdc
1 amp 250Vac

Heavy duty contacts : 10 amps 24Vdc

5 amps 250Vac


The transistor BC 547(NPN) is used to switch the LED displays. The simplest way to
use a transistor as a switch, meaning that we operate it at either saturation or cut-off, when a
transistor is saturated; it is like a closed switch from the collector to the emitter. When a
transistor is cut- off it is like an open switch.



BC 547 VCC / RC

MPLAB is a Windows program package that makes writing and developing
a program easier. It could best be described as developing environment for
some standard program language that is intended for programming a PC
computer. Some operations which were done from the instruction line with a
large number of parameters until the discovery of IDE "Integrated Development
Environment" are now made easier by using the MPLAB. Still, our tastes differ,

documented help is also available.

and abundant, it can be used everywhere where electricity is not available.
Here, the microcontroller which is used also prevents the water from
overflowing. Moreover, reverse osmosis is a good disinfectant process .This

be useful in the near future.


Basics of Entrepreneurship

It is a well-known fact that the scope of for absorbing the ever increasing
number of unemployment in government departments is very much restricted
on account of various factors. Absorption of unemployment people government
service takes place either on account of retirement of the existing staff or due to
launching of development programs. The employment so generated covers only
a segment of the unemployed. The private sector is also offering very little
opportunity to the young unemployed people due to various reasons. In such
adverse situation the Indian youth has to wage a bitter fight to solve the
problem of unemployment.

The plan document of our country lays emphasis on self-employment to

reduce unemployment in the country. We are a developing country and there is
a wider scope for the development of self employment to all types of job.
Industrial development in a country depends greatly upon the type of human
resources the country possesses. A country may be rich in material resources
and capital, but if entrepreneurship is lacking, the utilization of resources would
not be as expected. The developing economics of resources would not be as

Entrepreneurship prevails environment in a country. Entrepreneurship being an
innovator who introduces something new into the economy, a method of
protection not yet tested by experience in the branch of manufactured
concerned, a product with which the consumes are not familiar, a new source or

Product Selection

A prospective entrepreneur should first prepare a shore list of product

lines that he wants to establish. Then, he should select the product to be
manufactured based upon market survey and demand survey, financial
implementations involved, technical know-how available, and his own
experience in the line.

Market survey involves the following:

 Study similar product available in the market that can be probable

 Analyze them in regards to their utility, quality and cost.
 Check whether it is a seasonal product or needed throughout the
 Find the probable extend of the market.
 Find whether the product can be exported.
 Explore the possibility of manufacturing in collaboration with a
foreign company.
 A demand survey is made to determine
 Whether survey demand for the product is or inelastic.
 The trend of the demand.
 The composition and pattern of the potential users.

Site Selection
The important factors to be considered in selecting the site for an industry
are given below.
 Nearness to raw material: It will reduce the cost of transportation
of raw materials to the factory.
 Nearness to market: It will reduce transportation cost of the
finished products and also help to catch the share of the market.
 Easy availability of labor: If highly skilled workmen are required,
it is better to locate the plant near a large town.
 Availability of power and fuel: Electrical power and fuel required
for the plant should be easily obtainable in the area, Reliability of
power supply must be ensured.
 Availability of water: Water for drinking and for other purposes
should be easily available. If the process requires large quantity of
water, then the plant should be located near a major water source.
 Land-topography: Cost, probability of floods. Earthquakes, etc are
to be considered.
 Industrial areas: Notified industrial areas will be advantageous due
to the availability of ready infrastructure and other benefits.
 Other major factors: Presence of related industries, facilities for
expansion, housing facilities, and nearness of public amenities like
hospitals and schools, security problems, local and attitude of local

Plant Layout
Plant layout means the disposition of the various (equipments, material,
manpower, etc) and services of the plant within the area of the site selected.
Plant layout begins with the design of the factory building and goes up lathe
location and movement of a worktable. All the facilities like equipments, raw
material, machinery, tools fixtures,
Workers, etc, are given a proper place. In deciding the place for equipment, the
supervisors and workers who nave to operate them should be consulted.

There are three types of plant layout:

1. Process Layout (functional layout) in which all machines or
process of the same types is grouped together in the same area.
2. Product Layout (line layout) in which equipments regardless of
process is arranged as per the sequence of operations in which a
given product will be manufactured.
3. Layout by fixed position (static product layout) in which the
product is too big (e.g. ship, airplane) or too heavy to be moved
from one place to another and is consequently fixed in one place,
and men and machines are brought to the product to perform the
required operations. Whatever by the type required, certain basic
principles must be observed. While preparing the plant layout.

These are:
1. Placement of facilities in a logical and balanced manner.
2. Minimum movements for workers and materials
3. Smooth and continuous flow of operations
4. Optimum space utilization.
5. Flexibility

choices of the type of the organization will primary depend upon the nature of
the business to be started and his own preferences together with the amount of
capital he can contribute.

special regulations. However, to facilitate identification, the Directorate of
Industries (through District Industries Center - DIC) issues certificates
registering a unit as a Small Scale / Ancillary / Tiny Unit.
Registration is done is two stages, Via, provisional and permanent. The
issue of Provisional certificate almost automatic, with Unit / ail validity of 6
months and with a further extension for another 6 months.
