A significant growth of the Indian Aluminium industry has taken place in the last decade. Aluminium with its outstanding properties and the fact that it is a succe-ssful substitute for many non-ferrous base metals, in which India is comparitively deficient coupled with India's abundant reserves of high grade bauxites has drawn the attenion of the Government in recent years of the imp-ortance of this Industry.The aluminium industry in India has ' grown from 8,300 tonnes of aluminium in 1958 to 96,500 tonnes of aluminium in 1967 with an expected prod-uction of 1,19,0*0 tonnes by the end of this year. A tar-get of 3,00,000 tonnes of installed capacity of aluminim has been .visualised by the end, 1970-71 and 4,50,000 tonnes by 1975-76.
