Brief about Mining Sector

Indian Mining & Minerals industry

The metallurgical and mineral industries in India form the fundamentals of its industrial growth and development. India has a resource base spread throughout the country, which provides the basic raw materials for most of the industries. India’s production of minerals consists of 84 minerals comprising 4 fuel, 11 metallic, 49 non-metallic industrial and 20 minor minerals.

For the past three decades, the Indian mining industry has been progressing at an annual rate of 4 percent to 5 percent. The Indian mining industry currently employs over 1.1 million people. There are over 2,326 private and 292 public operating mines in India, and the minerals and metals from these mines contribute about 16 percent in India's total exports. With the recent amendments and Provisions in MM(R&D) Act, October 1996, the minerals and mining sector, which was earlier reserved exclusively for the public sector, has now been opened up for the private sector and the investments in the industry are being encouraged. The Government of India is making efforts to boost up the activities like research and making the minerals industry more competitive.

Some of the major public sector companies in this sector are:
