The Indian Railways is planning to increase the domestic content in procurement to 50-80 per cent from 20-50 per cent under ‘Make in India’ policy.

Orders for domestic high-end engineering manufacturing companies are expected to increase with the Diesel Locomotive Factory, the joint venture between the Indian Railways and US-headquartered GE Global Souring India, at Marhowra going on stream, he said.

Pitti’s products find application in almost every equipment that rotates or generates electricity.
