Capital Goods and Manufacturing Industry in India

The Capital goods and Manufacturing industry in India is a strong, resilient and vibrant manufacturing sector. A robust manufacturing sector is an essential element of the Indian growth story. It is particularly important in ensuring employment for a large and growing working age population. Manufacturing, currently at 15% of GDP, needs to grow at a rate that is 2-3% higher than GDP, in order to make a significant contribution to our economy and towards employment generation. In 2011-12 the size of the capital goods industry was estimated to be 500,000 crore, the domestic demand was valued at 2, 35,000 crore and the exports were valued at 2, 65,000 crore. The government of India has announced a national manufacturing policy with the objective of enhancing the share of manufacturing in GDP by 25% within a decade thereby creating 100 million jobs.

The Indian boiler industry comes under the Indian Boiler Regulations, which was created in 15th September 1950 in exercise of the powers conferred by section 28 & 29 of the Indian Boilers Act. The Indian Boilers Act was formed in 1923, 23rd February to consolidate and amend the law relating to steam boilers. Considering the vast expending base of this industry the government had decided that the owner of any boiler which is not registered under the provisions of this Act may apply to the inspector to have the boiler register.

The job of a Boiler Supervisor who looks into the proper functioning and working of the boilers has a lot of growth scope in the future.
