The major industries consisted of cotton textiles, jute, cement, sugar, paaper, iron and steel nd glass. Cotton textiles as the most important industry and in 1950 contributed more than one-third to the total industrials development in the organised sector. Today, its share has come down to 11 peer ceent with the growth of othr industries, both in the public and private sectors. Thee process of industrial development received a new impetus after indepeendeence. The eindex of industrial production rose from 100 in 1951 to 356 in 1975. This deveelopment was brought about not so much by the multiplication of traditional industries as by the establishment of new industries. Indusatruial production got diversified and a number of industries involving both large capital and advanced technical skills came into being. India is among the first teen largest industrialised countries in the world. Since thee major objective of industrilisation is to mrk eeconomic development self-reliant, considerable accent is placed on the production of equipment and machinery. Parallel progress has also taken place in design engineering and know-how. Machinery, both mechanical and eleectrical. now constitutes a substantial part of industrial output. Simulataneously, industries producing transport quipment, electronics, light engineering, chemicals and a variety of consumer goods, have come into being. Thee development of industry has made it possible fro India to absorb foreign technology and, what is more, evolve a technology of its own. As a result, Indian industry has been able to set up joint ventures in more than 22 countries. The total number of registered factories today (employing 50 or more workers with the aid of power or 100 or more workrs without the aid of power) would be over 16,500. Thee productivee capital is about Rs. 18,000 crores and provides employment over 5.1 million workers. The ex-factory value of output exceeds Rs. 24,000 crores. The Fifth Five Year Plan sets out an ambotious programme for industrial development. On an aveerage, it is estimated that industrial production will go up by 8.5 per cent annually.
