Here are few excerpts of the interview.

How far have government provisions such as National Highway expansion program, State Highways development programs and rural roads development programs contributed to the potential growth of backhoe loader demand?

Government initiatives over the past three years have made a considerable contribution to the growth of Earthmoving and Construction Equipment industry. Roads and Highways sector has been one of the primary growth drivers for this sector followed by sectors such as Railways, Irrigation and Affordable Housing, etc.

The Backhoe Loader has been one of the most widely used Construction Equipment in India for over four decades. It has played an important role in the development of India’s infrastructure. JCB pioneered the concept of Backhoe Loaders in India almost four decades ago in India and till date, has sold over 2,25,000 machines in India.

Given its versatility and mobility, the machine finds great use at almost every construction site, in both urban and rural India. This multi-purpose machine performs a variety of tasks at sites and is primarily used for digging, dozing, levelling and in general site applications.

Owing to the allocation committed towards rural development in the recent Union Budget, Backhoe Loaders will continue to find great utility in rural projects especially in the construction of roads under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY). It also contributes to the development of other physical infrastructure such as schools, medical centres, etc. Road projects, both in urban and rural areas, National and State Highway projects coupled with Government’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan will be the prime growth drivers for this versatile product.
