Resources and industry
India is also rich in minerals. It has large deposits of coal, iron ore, oil, bauxite (from which aluminium, is extracted), manganese, chromite, mica, gypsum and zinc. Although mining activity has progressed in the last two decades, the country is still not making full use of its rich mineral resources.
Manufacturing industries of all types have developed since India started a series of five-year economic development plans. (...) Factories turn out bicycles, cars, sewing machines, aircraft, textiles, railway engines, ships and heavy machinery. You can find modern electronic factories close by small workshops where weavers work handlooms or potters turn clay pots. India has a rich tradition of crafts.
India is divided into 25 states and seven union territories. Each state has its own elected assembly and government. Every adult can vote to elect a member of the state assembly and one member of the national parliament, the Lok Sabha. The President of the Republic of India is elected by the members of the national parliament and of all state assemblies, and serves a five-year term as the country's head of state. India's parliamentary democracy is based on the British model. The country is governed by a council of ministers headed by a prime minister, who enjoys the support of the majority of the members of parliament. (Oxford Children Encyclopaedia)
