In a bid to build a competitive environment; industries and their ancillaries would be promoted in clusters based on the availability of raw materials, skilled labour and market potential. Under this Industrial Policy through Madhya Pradesh Audyogik Kendra Vikas Nigam Ltd (MPAKVNs) scheme, the State Government, has identified industrial clusters. Many of the industrial giants have their establishments in these areas, however 44% of

developed area is still untapped and open for investment.

Mining: Mainstay of the Indian Economy

India is endowed with significant mineral resources and produces 89 minerals classified as fuel mineral (4); metallic mineral (11); non-metallic mineral (52)and; minor minerals (22). Value of Mineral Performance in India

The mineral sector accounts for 11% of the Countrys industrial production.
The total value of mineral production (excluding atomic minerals) during 2005-06 is estimated at USD 16.7 billion, wherein fuel minerals contribute the largest share (USD 12.54 billion). During the year 2004-05, the provisional value of export of ores and minerals was approximately USD 15.41 billion, in which diamond (mostly cut) was the major export item accounting for 67.1% of the total exports, followed by iron ore (20.1%) and granite(3.7%). The key mineral producing states of the Country includes Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu etc. Various international mining companies such as BHP Minerals- Australia, Meridian Peak Resources- Canada, Metdist- UK, Phelps Dodge CorporationUSA and Rio Tinto- UK among others, have received licenses for mining in the Country.
India is the worlds largest producer of mica blocks and mica splittings; third largest producer of chromite; third in production of coal & lignite and barytes; fourth in iron ore; sixth in bauxite and manganese ore; tenth in aluminium and; eleventh in crude steel.

Value Contribution of Minerals in India

Mining: Mainstay of the Indian Economy

The public sector is a dominant player in the sector and contributes over 85% of the total value of mineral production. However, recently Indian non-coal mining sector has fully opened the doors for private investment (both domestic and foreign). The changes/ modifications in the Mineral Policy, have made India comparable to any liberal regime existing in other major

mineral producing countries in the world.

The mineral sector is highly fragmented where 95% of operating mines produce about 50% of the value of the minerals, thereby providing an opportunity of consolidation.. As a result of economy boom, resurging industrial production and rapid infrastructure development, the demand for minerals is growing fast in the Country. The emergence of a vibrant middle class has created demand for base metal products, in addition to the traditional demand for gold and silver. This has lead to the need of systematic search and evaluation of new deposits and intensive exploration of the same to boost the production of the reserves of minerals. In this regard, India is looking for state-of-the-art Status of Mineral Reserves in India

technological and management expertise, which can improve

productivity through good planning and design of mines,

reduction of costs, and optimisation of smelting and refining operations and by-product recoveries.

Mineral Based Industries in The State
Mineral Reserves & Mineral Based Industries in M.P. The land parcels in the eastern, south-eastern and western belts of M.P. are the rich in various mineral reserves. Most of these minerals are supplied to other states in crude or semiprocessed forms for commercial use and further processing. Due to the large availability of minerals, several mineral-based industries have come up in and around these areas. Some of these industries are cement, thermal power, coal washeries etc. The mining industry along with the downstream/ allied industries have been the major source of employment in the State.

MP: Mineral Hub of India

Taking Mineral Industry a Step Further
The State has proposed to set-up Mineral-based industrial parks to give an impetus to the industry. The cluster approach adopted by the Government would support the core mineral industry as well as the allied/support industries such as jewellery making, crafting, cutting, polishing etc. The units/ companies in these parks would enjoy various fiscal and non-fiscal incentives that would be offered by the State Government. Further, these clusters/ parks would have two pronged benefits for the State Government and industries wherein it will be a source of generating employment in the State and would be a source of skilled manpower required for specific industries.


In order to harness the benefits of marble deposits in and around the Katni district, the State has come up with the Stone Park at Hardua. The Park is spread over an area of 120 acres and would house 40 units. It would focus on production, cutting, polishing, finishing and export of marbles. The location is in proximity to highway and railway station making it easy for transportation. M.P. Industries Development Corporation has been appointed as agency to development the infrastructure for Stone Park.


Gems and jewellery park is proposed to be set-up in Indore. The Park would focus on cutting, polishing, designing and marketing of precious stones and gold jewellery and export of the same. Land area of about 7 acres have been proposed for the Park, which could house about 200 units. The proposed site is very close to Indore airport (2.1 km) and railway station (15 km). M.P. Export Corporation Limited would promote the park, develop the scheme and provide management for setting up units in the Park.

The Government has also proposed: - Granite Park in Tikamgarh/ Sagar/ Chhatarpur and; - Diamond Park in Panna


Location Analysis
MP belt constitutes of the oldest group of rocks comprising of Archaeans and Proterozoic formation that constitutes nearly 45% area of the State. Further, other younger formations also have a significant

presence, thereby justifying the vast and varies mineral reserves.

In addition to this, M.P. is centrally located and well connected through road and rail to other states. This makes the transportation of crude minerals/ ores from M.P. to other states relatively easier. Further, M.P. has proximity to the major industrial states of the Country such as Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh etc. The State is the major source of raw material for the sustenance of the industries in other states. It supplies bauxite, manganese, copper ore, marble etc. to various states of the Country, as shown in the figure. The vast unexploited mineral reserves in the State, offers a long term strategic opportunities to national and international mining
