NKMP (People's Commissariat of Local Industry)

The People's Commissariat of Local Industry (Narodnii Komissariat Mestnoi Promishlennosti) was formed in August 1934 to manage industry in the USSR's regions and republics. By 1934, some local factories remained under the previously-created (and much larger) People’s Commissariat of Industry, while smaller firms were placed under the local industry subordinate.
