Market Size and Expected Growth of the Indian Transport and Logistics Sector

According to a report by the World Bank, India?s transport sector is large and diverse; it caters to the needs of 1.1 billion people. In 2007, the sector contributed about 5.5 percent to the nation?s GDP, with road transportation contributing the lion?s share. Good physical connectivity in the urban and rural areas is essential for economic growth. Since the early 1990s, India's growing economy has witnessed a rise in demand for transport infrastructure and services.

Government aims to modernize, expand and integrate the country's transport services. It also seeks to mobilize resources for this purpose and to gradually shift the role of government from that of a producer to an enabler. In recent years, the Government has made substantial efforts to tackle the sector?s shortcomings and to reform its transport institutions.

The continuous efforts for improvements by the government and rise in the demand for public transport and related services have added to the employment opportunities for Ticket Examiner nationwide.
