Main development impact
India has an ambitious plan to increase the mining of metals and minerals to service the increasing domestic demand and reduce imports. Gemco Kati has established itself as one of the leading professional and quality drilling and exploration companies servicing mining companies in India with international standards.
In addition to indirectly supporting national industrial development, the Company is an important actor in supporting local economies through jobs, salaries, domestic purchases, and taxes. It is expected that the expansion of operations will lead to an increase in the number of jobs from 280 to 680 in five years. The company relies heavily on local suppliers in its operations and 75% of the capital expenditure supported by this investment is to be used for purchases from local suppliers.
