Abstract

The Construction industry of India is an important indicator of the development as it creates investment opportunities across various related sectors. The construction industry has contributed an estimated US$ 308 billion to the national GDP in 2011-12 (a share of around 19%). The industry is fragmented, with a handful of major companies involved in the construction activities across all segments; medium-sized companies specializing in niche activities; and small and medium contractors who work on the subcontractor basis and carry out the work in the field. In 2011, there were slightly over 500 construction equipment manufacturing companies in all of India. The sector is labor-intensive and, including indirect jobs, provides employment to more than 35 million people. The Indian construction industry is also facing a severe resource setback in terms of skilled and semi-skilled man power. Though the above mentioned problems need noteworthy thought and time, it is crucial that increased emphasis is given to new project management strategies so that the Indian growth story doesn't meet a hasty end. After some research the medium and big firms need to look to the developed nations and also China for new strategies and implement them here.
