Automotive Sector in India

In India, the automotive industry is one of the largest industries showing impressive growth over the years. Presently, India is the world's second largest manufacturer of two wheelers, fifth largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles as well as largest manufacturer of tractors.

The Indian automotive industry has already attained a turnover of 1,65,000 crore (34 billion USD) and has provided direct and indirect employment to 1.31 crore people in the country. The announcement of 'Automotive Mission Plan' for the period of 2006-2016 is a major step taken to make India a global automotive hub. The mission aims to make India emerge as the destination of choice in the world for design and manufacture of automobiles and auto components, with output reaching a level of US$ 145 billion (accounting for more than 10% of the GDP) and providing additional employment to 25 million people by 2016.
