'Regulatory framework for construction, mining equipment'

'Regulatory framework for construction, mining equipment'
The Centre will soon come out with a separate, transparent regulatory framework for the construction, mining and earthmoving equipment sector, Secretary, Heavy Industries, Rajan Kotoch said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a sectoral seminar organised as part of the ongoing Make In India Week in Mumbai he said: “The proposed regulatory framework is required to bring in more clarity as the concerns of the construction, mining and earthmoving equipment are not adequately addressed as per the current legislation under the Central Motor Vehicle Act.”

With renewed stress laid by the government on infrastructure development, the Indian earthmoving and construction equipment industry has been expanding volumes at a compounded annual rate of 40 per cent. “The planned increments in highways sector are likely to keep the growth momentum intact in the coming years” Katoch added.

An MoU was signed between the Heavy Engineering Corporation (HEC), Ranchi and Cummins India, Pune for manufacture of specialised engines for dozers (bulldozers).  HEC and PromTractor JSC, Russia have agreed to join hands to jointly execute a project for manufacture and assembly of dozers of different capacities for the user industries.

These Dozers require special, suitable engines and accessories which shall be sourced from Cummins India, which will be manufacturing these engines in India suitable for Indian climate and working conditions.
