In this short paper, a survey of non-ferrous mineral production and reserves of India is attempted,emphasizing the present deficiencies and surplus capacities in the general context of indigenous requirements and export overseas. Attention isdrawn to the possibilities of substituting available indigenous materials for those in short supply and to making the most of the metals of which resources are abundant. The general policy enumerated in the Five Year Plan of putting home use before export and of exporting semi-manufactured or fully manufactured products rather than untreated ores is endorsed. Each of the important metalliferous minerals is dealt with in turn in respect of reserves,production and the existing non-ferrous industry or that which could readily be. established- Specific lines along which advances are most probable are indicated for aluminium, copper, lead and zinc.
