According to a PTI report, buoyed by government policies and rising economic activity, the industrial sector is poised for rapid growth and is expected to create millions of jobs in the coming years.
Propelled by recent industry reforms, including the government's Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme, robust production figures, as well as changing consumption patterns, innovative business models such as 3PL (Third-Party Logistics), and surging rural demand, the industrial sector is poised for rapid growth in the coming years, the report by TeamLease Services said.
