Matter falls under Department of Public Enterprises Feb 2013: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and Gas Authority of India Ltd.(GAIL) were given Maharatna Status.

Misc facts
Following are given directly / mentioned/ hinted in the industries chapter under India 2013 Yearbook, hence important for MCQs. (otherwise there is no end to stupid misc. facts).

India’s rank in production
Sponge Iron Jute Tractors Silk Cement Cotton Two wheeler Bicycle Salt Nitrogenous fertilizers Crude Steel Foundry 3rd (China is 1st, USA is 2nd) 4th 5th 1st 1st 1st 2nd after China 2nd after China 2nd after China. Note: Wool is the only natural fiber which India is deficient and has to import it to meet production demand. 2nd after China 2nd After China. (Punjab and TN major producers within India.)

For boilers, BHEL is the largest manufacturer in India DDT: Hindustan Insecticides ltd is largest producer of DDT in wor. The only other producer is China.

Refrigerators: DC vs FF
Direct Cool (DC) Cheaper, consumes less energy Direct cool refrigerators use natural convection, resulting in instant cooling capabilities, but that leads to frost build up. You’ve to manually defrost it. Less Rural areas=frequent power cuts. Hence villagers prefer direct cool refrigerators. Frost Free (FF) More, although price gap is declining between DC and FF given the R&D advancements and competition among companies. do not require any deicing or defrosting through manual means. It is handled automatically. better at maintaining consistent temperatures, and keeping food items fresh for a longer period of time. Preferred by urban junta.

BEE labelling
Bureau of energy efficiency under Ministry of Power More details already given on: http://mrunal.org/2012/09/econ-bee.html

Batteries: Lead acid vs Dry cell
Lead Acid storage UPS Vehicles (car batteries) Mobiles Laptops Electronic toys

Dry cell



[Economic Survey Ch9] Industrial performance, E-biz, Invest India, Manufacturing Policy, OBICUS, ASI « Mrunal

Gaston Planté (France) All lead acid storage batteries are rechargeable.

Georges Leclanché (France) Usually non-rechargeable- just use and throw. (although rechargeable varieties are also available) Zinc–carbon Alkaline (zinc and manganese dioxide)

Lead sulfate and Sulfuric acid Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) Nickel/Cadmium (NiCd)


Alkaline batteries in India
In developed countries, alkaline batteries constitute 90% of primary battery market. While in India only 2% while Alkaline is more efficient than Zinc Carbon, but also more expensive. For example Duracell (pink bunny ad) is an alkaline battery. While it runs longer but expensive compared to the zinc carbon version of Nippon, everyready and other Chinamade cells.

Foundry clusters
Cluster Coimbatore, TN Rajkot Batala, Jalandhar Famous for ___ Castings Pumpsets Diesel Engine Machinary parts and agro implements

Kolhapur, Belgaum Automobile

Water treatment plant
1. Primary treatment 2. Secondary Remove pollutants that settles or floats Degrade the biological content of seweage Clarifiers, oil-water separator devices Remove waste that was missed in primary and secondary treatment stage. Filtration, carbon absorption.

3. Tertiary

Water treatment processes
Biological Biodegradation via bacteria, fungi, algaea and yeast: to breakdown organic matters. Chemical Physical To remove organic/ inorganic matter that cannot be biodegraded. Done via Precipitation, oxidization, neutralization Sedimentation, clarification

Air pollution control equipment
Classified into five types 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Settling chambers Ventury scrubber Ionized scrubber Electrostatic precipitator Bag filters

Industrial Gears
Industrial Gears are used for two purposes 1. Rotation speed: increase / decrease 2. Power or torque: increase / decrease They’re used in elevators, kilns, cranes etc. Gearbox = metal casing in which a train of gears is sealed. Switchgears fuses or circuit breakers etc. to control and protect electrical equipment.

Measures to boost MSME sector
Public Procurement Policy for Goods= All the central ministries / departments / central public sector undertakings (CPSUs) shall

procure a minimum of 20 per cent of their annual value of goods / services required by them from MSEs. And out of that, 4 per cent procurement from MSEs owned by SC / ST entrepreneurs Govt also provides guarantee cover for loans upto 100 lakh. Capital Subsidy Scheme to help them upgrade their technology. SIDBI set up the India Microfinance Equity Fund in 2011-12

Manufacturing India is one of the top ten manufacturing countries though its share in total manufacturing value added (MVA) is only about 1.8 per cent. Due to low-level technology, higher input costs & poor quality infrastructure. While India’s performance is good in labour-intensive sectors such as textiles, wearing apparel & leather products. But Even in these three sectors India’s share was low as compared to China. Latest competitive industrial performance index (CIP) compiled by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), ranks India 42nd out of 118 countries the same as in 2005. China is ranked 5th. IIP problem Last year, IIP has been either negative or very low growth because Incoming Investment =decreased. Corporate sector’s Profit margin= decreased (thanks to inflation) Loan / credit = becoming expensive. Global economy = not yet fully recovered. Infra-bottlenecks Low output of coal = low thermal power generation= electricity shortages. rail, road, & ports projects= not finished in time bound manner. therefore crucial to accelerate the output of core sectors & speed up implementation of crucial big ticket projects. low level of R&D inadequate availability of skilled manpower. India has not improved significantly in terms of the ease of doing business & ranks very low in comparison to other industrial nations. MSME sector = multiple approval & operational restrictions. The process of setting up & exiting business is time consuming & complicated requiring expensive third party assistance. Since states have the major role in administering MSME sector. There is need to create uniform rules, processes in all states. The policy initiatives taken by the government in the recent months made the business sentiment buoyant & have generated some optimism. but there is room for lot of improvement.

Reply to this comment have a look about e– biz:As part of the UPA Government’s National eGovernance Plan, the Commerce and Industry Ministry, on Monday, announced the launch of an eBiz portal aimed at providing Government-to-Business (G2B) services for India’s investor and business communities. The portal was launched by Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma at the CII Partnership Summit here. The portal was developed by Infosys in a public-private partnership (PPP) mode. Infosys has been selected as the concessionaire/ project implementation partner, and is responsible for the design, development, implementation and maintenance of the eBiz solution. The online single-window concept was visualised to enable businesses and investors to save time and costs and improve the business environment. “The project aims to create a business and investor-friendly ecosystem in India by making all business and investment-related regulatory services across Central, State and local governments available on a single portal, thereby obviating the need for an investor or a business to visit multiple offices or a plethora of websites,” he said. eBiz will create a 24×7 facility for information and services, and will also offer joined-up services where a single application submitted by a customer, for a number of permissions, clearances, approvals and registrations, will be routed automatically across multiple governmental agencies in a logical manner. An in-built payment gateway will also add value by allowing all payments to be collected at one point and then apportioned, split and routed to the respective heads of account of Central / State / parastatal (a quasi-governmental organisation, corporation, business, or agency) agencies along with generation of challans and MIS (management information systems) reports.

Reply to this comment PMEGP a view:– PMEGP is a credit-linked subsidy programme merging erstwhile PMRY and REGP for generating self-employment through establishment of micro-entreprises, organize traditional artisans and un-employed youth, stop migration of workers and increase their earning capacity. It is a Central Sector Scheme. PMEGP virtually started after issue of guidelines on 25 September 2008. PMEGP is implemented by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) being the Nodal Agency at national level and State KVIC Directorates, State KVIBs and DICs at state level (IAs). They will involve NGOs, PRIs, SHGs, NSIC, Udyami Mitras etc in identification of beneficiaries, viable projects and training and also in implementation.
