All About Mining Engineering

According to ICRA the Indian mining industry currently employs over 1.1 million people in both the public and private sector.'

'Demand for mining products like coal petroleum will only increase with time as long as a better alternative fuel is produced or found. This in turn increases the demand for people to work in the industry.'

'According to BBC News over 90% of mineral resources in India are still unexplored making it officially a good industry in terms of employment.
