For nearly 14 years, Manish Bhaiya rode his bike into hell and back, every day. The trek to his rail wagon components factory in Urla from his Raipur home felt like he was travelling into the rural heartland. In fact, the bumpy, kuchcha path that led to his unit in sector B hardly qualified as a road. No wonder he fell down thrice from his motorcycle in a span of two years, breaking a bone each time. “There was no street lights, and I often came across cattle or skidded due to the mud after rains,” recalls the 43-year-old founder of Eastern Fabritech. Repeated requests by him and the Urla Industries Association to the Chhattisgarh Industrial Development Corporation (CSIDC) went unheeded.
