Do you know which cities have the highest chance of getting a job in the engineering industry? And which trade is in high demand? Today we will talk about the Engineering Goods category included in the One District One Product Scheme of the Government of India and the Jobs and Trades associated with it.
In the One District One Product scheme, the Government of India has linked all the districts of the country with the most famous products of that district so that the ecosystem of that product can be developed rapidly. The engineering goods sector itself is a very big industry in which more than 40 lakh skilled and semi-skilled people are employed. Many engineering goods are also exported from India. Engineering goods cover a wide range of products such as metal products, industrial machinery and machine parts, castings and forgings, pumps, compressors, and auto components. The engineering goods sector can be divided into two categories – heavy engineering and light engineering.
Now let us talk about those cities or districts included in the engineering goods category in the One District One Product scheme. You will be able to know which cities have more job opportunities around. Although the engineering industry is spread in many states and cities of India, I specifically mention the names of those districts which are included in the engineering goods category in the One District One Product scheme.
Uttar Pradesh – Ghaziabad
Haryana – Gurgaon, Jind, Rewari, and Ambala
Himachal Pradesh – Una
Punjab – Mohali
Maharashtra – Pune
Gujarat – Rajkot
Jharkhand – Seraikela and West Singhbhum

Tamil Nadu – Thiruvallur
Telangana – Malkajgiri
Let’s talk about some of these districts in a little detail. Ghaziabad is a big and important city in Uttar Pradesh and is connected to the capital of the country, Delhi. Many small and big engineering industries are engaged here, in which machinery parts, metal fabrication, steel fabrication, transport equipment, auto spare parts, sugar mill machinery, and lift parts are prominent.
Gurgaon, which has been renamed Gurugram sometime back, is known as Cyber City because it is famous for the IT industry. But there are also a lot of engineering industries in Gurgaon city and its adjoining Manesar. Like Ghaziabad, Gurgaon is also well connected to Delhi.

Talk about Ambala, another district of Haryana itself. Ambala has two major industrial areas – Ambala Industrial Area and Saha Industrial Area. Ambala is very famous for Light Engineering Goods Industries. The agricultural machinery here is in demand all over India. The major engineering industries here are – Agriculture Implements, Scientific Instruments, and Metal Fabrication.
Now let’s go to Punjab and talk about Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar ie Mohali. Mohali is considered a part of Chandigarh, one of the most beautiful cities in India. The major engineering industries here are fabricated metal products, auto parts especially tractor parts, machinery equipment, and electrical machinery.
Today we talked about some of the districts included in the engineering goods category in the One District One Product scheme. This sector is a very important job sector for ITI and polytechnic people. There is a requirement for skilled and semi-skilled workers in almost all trades here.
