Horticulture is the pillar of this very much watered locale.

The State Industrial Development Corporation of Uttarakhand (SIDCUL) has now settled one new ‘mechanical improvement zone’ in the region, neighboring Shivalik Nagar close to Haridwar, to support industrialisation; with modern monsters like Hindustan Lever, Dabur, Mahendra and Mahendra and Havells having moved in, it is gaining the ideal ground. Not irrelevant to the locale’s economy is the commitment of Hindu pioneers who visit the heavenly places and go to the strict fairs in enormous numbers.
