In 1605, Dutch founded their first factory in Krishna District in Andhra Pradesh, India. Also, this place is famous for trading Kalamkari textile (painting with natural and vegetable dyes on silk and cotton fabric with bamboo pen). Complete answer: Dutch East Indies Company is taken into account to be the first primary multinational corporation of the world. Option A) Nagapattinam – is that the town within the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and this place is also the administrative department of Nagapattinam District. Thus, this is an incorrect answer. Option B) Masulipatam - In 1602, the United archipelago company of European nations was formed and given permission by the Dutch government to exchange archipelago including India. The Dutch founded their first factory in Masulipatnam in the state Andhra Pradesh in 1605. Thus, this is the correct answer. Option C) Pulicat - Pulicat or Pazhaverkadu could be a historic seashore town in Thiruvallur District in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. Thus, Dutch failed to find their first factory in India in Pulicat and this can be an incorrect answer. Option D) Cochin – Cochin is a state in Southwest India’s coastal Kerala state and nowadays it is referred as Cochin and Cochin isn’t the primary place in India where Dutch found their first factory in India and this can be an incorrect answer. Therefore the correct answer is option (C). Note: In India, Dutch established their first factory in Masulipatnam in 1605. Masaulipatam is the second largest port in the province and also the port was under the control of Dutch and East Indies companies. After the setup of the first factory in Masulipatnam, they’d factories at Surat in 1616, at Bimilipatam in 1641, and Chinsura in 1653.
