Opportuniti es

continuous private sector housing boom will create more construction opportunities.   Public sector projects through Public Private Partnerships will bring further opportunities.   Developing supply chain through involvement in large projects is likely to enhance the chances in construction.   Renewable energy projects will offer opportunities to develop skills and capacity in new markets.   More flexible training delivery techniques are now available.   Financial supports like loan and insurance and growth in income of people is in support of construction industry.   Historical cultural heritages like the TAZ MAHAL encourage and provide a creative platform for the industry.   Remote areas in the country are easily accessible and plenty of land is available in the country.

Problems construction industry is facing
Our construction industry suffers from capacity constraints, lack of trained manpower and managerial skills with performance much below international level. The industry is starved of finance. Small and medium contractors do not have the wherewithal to upgrade their capability, both hard and soft, to undertake high value time bound projects. Quality, safety, environment and social aspects are also not being addressed appropriately.

Though there are islands of excellence in a sea of mediocrity, our companies must become global players by modernising, intensive training of their manpower, enhancing their turnover and change of mindset.

positive development of the construction secto

•A positive image of the construction industry as a career choice. •Adequate training facilities to cope with increasing demands for Modern Apprenticeships. •A workforce that is suitably skilled and qualified. •The transfer of skills from other sectors, such as agriculture, fishing, aquaculture and forestry, to the construction industry. •Local employers able to effectively compete for the large scale construction contracts.

Conclusio n
In the years ahead, the construction industry in India has to overcome various challenges with respect to housing, environment, transportation, power or natural hazards. Technocrats associated with the Indian construction industry need to employ innovative technologies and skilled project handling strategies to overcome these challenges. The outstanding performance under demanding situations in the past will stand in good stead and give confidence to the Indian construction industry to bring about an overall development in the infrastructure of the nation. The gains of large investments in the mega-projects eventually will feedback to the construction industry itself in the form of better economy and improved work conditions.
