The previous chapters in this volume have described the important aspects of the district economy such as agriculture, industry, trade, transport, banking etc. In this chapter an attempt is made to describe such economic pursuits as are not dealt within these chapters. These pursuits could be grouped under the head ‘Miscellaneous Occupations’. They have an important place in the economy of the district. Occupations also provide employment opportunities to a number of persons and many of these occupations are concerned with production of essential articles of daily use.
