NKMP (People's Commissariat of Local Industry)

НКМП (Народного комиссариата местной промышленности)

The People's Commissariat of Local Industry (Narodnii Komissariat Mestnoi Promishlennosti) -- abbreviated NKMP -- was formed in August 1934 to manage industry in the USSR's regions and republics. While some local factories remained under a previously-created (and larger) People’s Commissariat of Industry, smaller industrial firms in the USSR typically were under the NKMP.
