Overview of the Indian Mining Sector

The Indian mining sector is largely fragmented, comprising several small scale operational mines. It is still dominated by the mining industries both public and private, which account for about 75% of the total mining production in India. Although the industry has the large number of employees, including contract manpower totalling to about 9.5 lakhs in different trades of mining, the woeful shortage of skilled personnel in various mining trades is widely felt.

The key factors affecting the human resources and skill requirement in the Indian mining industry are technology up-gradation, increase in productivity, stringent environment and sustainable development framework, globalization and aging profile of workforce and long gestation period for skill acquisition. Given the estimated increase in the mining output as well as the expected changes in the productivity levels, the total employment in the mining industry is estimated to increase to 11 lakhs by the year 2017 and 12 lakhs by the year 2025.

Given the positive forecast for the industry, it will have a trickle-down effect on the job opportunities for a Mechanic or Fitter.
