Project Report

A project report gives us an overview of the business. It gives an introduction of his project, justifying how it can be a profitable venture followed by process of manufacture and market potential surveys etc.

The project report submitted to the bank is a little more detailed and contains the feasibility report. This is also known as Detailed Project Report (DPR) or Techno Economic Feasibility Report. Here is an example of the DPR of a Packaged Drinking Water Venture:-

Production Capacity (per annum):-
• Packaged Drinking Water: Total quantity x. Cost per unit: xxxx. In pouches of xxx lts.
• Packaged Drinking Water: Total quantity x. Cost per unit: xxxx. In bottles of xxx lts.
• Month and year of preparation: xx/xxxx
• Prepared by/for: (Address of the manufacturing unit as well as the office address)
• Promoter Profile: Containing bio data

Water is very essential for all living things. Drinking water contains some useful minerals such as sulphur, iron, magnesium and calcium which are essential and useful for the human body to regulate certain body functions. In addition to biological and chemical contamination, water sources are often polluted by external sources, making them totally unsafe for drinking purposes. Drinking water must ideally be free of micro organisms, excess mineral contents and it should be aesthetically acceptable to be free of turbidity, color, odour and any objectionable taste. Due to health consciousness and living standardization there is great demand for mineral water in hotels, restaurants, tourism Dept., Railway Dept. And it is also becoming fashion in conferences, parties, meetings and other celebrations.

Market Potential
Although there are many units in the country are manufacturing mineral water they are not in position to meet the increasing demand. Hence there exists good scope for setting some more units in the country provided units have to prepare quality product and has to select appropriate packaging material. In the state of xxxx there are only about 7-8 units manufacturing mineral water in small scale sector mainly located in xxxxxxx. Still there exists plenty scope for setting up small scale unit for the manufacture of mineral water in the state. The proposed scheme is prepared for mineral water packed in PET Bottles.
