It is a good time to get into crushing and screening industry in India. Wondering why? It is because the government favours infrastructure development and sees it as a way to revive the economy, hard hit by the COVID pandemic.
In his Independence day address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that 7,000 projects have been identified across various sectors as part of the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) project which would be executed at an investment of Rs 110 lakh crore.
He also shared how his government is prioritising on improving the infrastructure for faster development with the help of NIP projects.
In PM’s words, “ NIP is a project that will revolutionise India’s infra creation efforts. Many new jobs will be created, our farmers, youngsters, entrepreneurs will benefit.”
Infrastructure development has been the central government’s focus as the NIP project was first made public by the PM during his 2019 Independence day’s speech.
It is plain truth that infrastructure is a major sector that propels overall development of the Indian economy.

She also said that the distinction between the captive and non-captive mines will be removed to allow the transfer of mining leases and sale of surplus unused minerals, leading to better efficiency and production.
