Summary of part-1

The GCSR (Global Country Study Report) is an essential part to MBA sem-3.

In this project we have to study global country industry and we have to

analyze bilateral trade opportunity between India and any other particular

country, and also we have to find trade opportunity Gujarat and Nagaland.

Here we are studying mining industry in Canada and Mining industry of India.

Mining industry in India

The Mining industry in India is a major economic activity which

contributes significantly to the economy of India.

The GDP contribution of the mining industry varies from 2.2% to 2.5%

only but going by the GDP of the total industrial sector it contributes

around 10% to 11%. Even mining done on small scale contributes 6% to

the entire cost of mineral production.

Indian mining industry provides job opportunities to around 700,000


India is the largest producer of sheet mica, the third largest producer of

iron and the fifth largest producer of bauxite in the world. India's

metal and mining industry was estimated to be $106.4bn (£68.5bn) in 2010.
