Rgulatory For CE, mining and earthmoving equipment
The Government of India may soon come out with a separate, transparent regulatory framework for the construction, mining and earthmoving equipment. This was announced and discussed in the DHI-FICCI Session on Construction Equipment & Technology as part of the ?Make in India Week?. The session was jointly organised by Department of Heavy Industry and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI). Dr Rajan S. Katoch, Secretary, Department of Heavy Industry, Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, inaugurated the session.
The proposed regulatory framework is required to bring in more clarity as the concerns of the construction, mining and earthmoving equipment are not adequately addressed as per the current legislation under the Central Motor Vehicles Act.
Also, an MoU was signed by Vedajna Vittal, Cummins India and Avijit Ghosh, Chairman Heavy Engineering Corporation Ltd, during a session in the presence of Dr Rajan Katoch, and Vishvajit Sahay, Joint Secretary, DHI. HEC and Promtractor JSC Russia ?Chetra? have agreed to jointly execute a project for manufacture and assembly of dozers of different capacities for the user industries.
