Mahindra and Mahindra Swaraj | Internship Industrial Training Report
India is mainly an agricultural country. Agriculture accounts for approximately 25 percent of India’s GDP. Agriculture in India is the means of livelihood of almost two thirds of the workforce in the country and employs nearly 62 percent of the population. It accounts for 13 percent of India’s exports. About 42 percent of India’s geographical area is used for agricultural activities. It is therefore considered a vital sector of the Indian economy.
The Indian tractor industry is the largest in the world, accounting for one third of global production. The other major tractor markets in the world are China and the USA. The global spotlight on tractor manufacture in terms of unit volume seems to be swinging away from the USA, UK and Western and Eastern Europe towards India and China, where growth in the number of producers and the total volume of production in recent years has been impressive.
