The data have been analyzed using partial budgeting technique and simple tabular analysis. The results revealed that there was a shift in the cropping pattern of the farmers that before the installation of the factory, the crops like cotton (24.63%), maize (22.07%), onion (5.98%) but after the installation of factory. The crops like maize (38.01%), cotton (16.27%), onion (2.11%) were observed. It shows the area under maize has been increased after the installation of factory. Selling of maize to the starch extraction factory was increases market cost of Rs. 365.44 (Rs. 16/Qtl.) and saved amount of Rs. 1603.37. The total income increased was Rs. 3613.29 by selling maize to the maize starch extraction factory. The factory received huge quantity of maize around 8 lakh Kg per day. Therefore, maize starch extraction factory is not under loss and also beneficial to maize growers of the study area.
