Our has historically been labor-oriented. Due to the abundance of cheap labour, lack of capital investment, and the highly fragmented character of the construction sector, mechanisation has historically progressed very slowly. Even while most industrialised nations have mechanisation levels far above 70, it is still only between 25 and 30 in the United States. Large-scale investments were made possible by India's economy's liberalisation beginning in 1991 in the areas of infrastructure, industry, housing, and agriculture. For the new-age buildings to have a viable life cycle cost, they needed to be completed quickly and to a high standard. In order to align with the overall development goal, the new scenario made it easier to create RMC facilities on a commercial scale and sped up the pace of mechanisation. RMC began operating on a large scale in India in 1993 at a single factory near Pune. It now accounts for around 15 of all concrete produced in the nation. RMC has a stake of up to 50 to 60 in several major cities including Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Chennai. If the necessary assistance is given by the regulatory bodies, customers, and decision-makers during its early years, RMC in India has immense development opportunities. In this project the critical factor causing improving productivity will indentify.
