Growth Estimates of the Automotive Industry in India

The Automotive Mission Plan for the period of 2006-2016 aims to make India emerge as a global automotive hub. The idea is to make India the destination of choice for the design and manufacture of automobiles and auto components, with outputs soaring to reach US$ 145 billion which is basically accounting for more than 10% of the GDP. This would also provide further employment to over 25 million people by 2016 making the automobile sector the sunrise sector of the economy.

An increase in this sector will require more insurance coverage, which will increase the demand of Auto Sales Officer. Insurance cover has to be renewed from time to time so the job of a Sales Officer (Auto Insurance) becomes recurrent in nature.
