Efforts from the Department of Sainik Welfare (DSW), Jatkar happens to be its director as well, to invite potential entrepreneurs for the plan yielded no results. Zilla Sainik Welfare Officers (ZSWO), Satara, subordinate to DSW, in a letter dated October 10, 2011 wrote to Jatkar, "An appeal was made in local newspapers asking for ex- servicemen to participate in manufacture of automobile and engineering components. The appeal has yielded no results."
