Rajkot pump set industries


The industrial city of Rajkot is one of the largest producers of submersible pumps for the agricultural and domestic sectors, as well as centrifugal pumps for domestic and industrial usage. There are about 1000 pump set manufacturing units in Rajkot, with production levels ranging from 500 to 3500 pump sets per month. The units produce pump sets of two different levels of quality—colloquially referred to as ‘premium’ (those meeting the standards set by Bureau of Indian Standards, BIS) and ‘commercial’ (below BIS quality). About 350 units have at least a few BIS-certified pump sets in their product range. About 350 more units are capable of reaching BIS quality standards with some technical support. The remaining 300–400 units in the cluster are very small and in the unorganized sector; they manufacture very low-cost, low-quality pump sets.
