The process of industrial development in the state of Sikkim is a post eighties phenomenon. Prior to 1975, Sikkim was an independent separate country under the protection of Government of India. With the merger of Sikkim in 1975 with the Indian Union, the concept of industrialisation through the small- scale industries suitable to the Sikkimese ecology started in Sikkim. Among the small scale industries, the then infant tea industry of Temi of South Sikkim also attracted the attention of the Government of Sikkim. Thus, industrialising Temi called for the introduction of a manufacturing factory in 1977 at Temi Tea Estate. After the establishment of a factory, the industrialisation process having specific goals of the organisation to the customers world, the tea industry evolved into a full flazed form.
