The manufacturing industry, as the backbone that defined India’s growth in the 1980-90s. While India gained global prominence due to the rapid growth of the service Industry, the manufacturing industry has all the qualities to further enhance the economic development of the country. In fact, it is this sector that is fueling growth, employment and enhancing the other industries such as agriculture and service. To accelerate the efficiency and competitive performance of the manufacturing industry, it is essential to modernise their infrastructure.
