At that time public enterprises were taken as an engine of growth due to lack of private investors. A strong industrial base is very essential in Assam, as the state holding prospects for rapid industrialization. In Assam industrialization was accelerated with establishment of a number of resource-based industries mostly in the public sector located in some of the backward areas of the state. In 1991, new economic policy gave a new approach towards public sector. Many industries could not cope up with this changing environment. Sickness became a familiar phenomenon in the public sectors enterprises. Economy of Assam also badly affected due to sickness in public enterprises. This paper makes an attempt to address such issue.
