Indian mining industry to face skilled manpower shortage

India, ranked among the top five global players in production of several major minerals, is poised for rapid growth in its mining industry – about five percent of the GDP.

However, lack of skilled workers is set to hit the industry, creating a demand-supply gap of over 2,200 people by 2025, according to a study on mapping of human resources and skills for the mining industry in India by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
