BIOTECHNOLOGY-Weak Monitoring

had 10.7 per cent of the factories, 6.8 per cent! of fixed capital and 4.9 per cent of factory employment. A second deleterious effect is in the disappointing performance of major engineering items whose physical output figures in 1992- 93 were in many cases less than half of what they were in 1990-91. The worst performance being in the electrical machinery industry. The output of ASCR and A AC conductors in 1990-91 was 67,623 tonnes, a capacity utilisation of 45.6 per cent in that year. In 1992-93, its production stood at 24,279 tonnes, a capacity utilisation of just 16.4 per cent. Other important electrical machinery and component industries experiencing drastic reduction in output during the period are: dry cells (12,35,659 in thousand numbers to 11,92,464 in thousand numbers), power capacitors (33.58.629 KVAR to 30,12,163 KVAR), welding electrodes (5,65,506 thousand run mt to 5,13,087 thousand run mt), electric motors (7,90,885 to 2,43,135), alternators/generators (48.82,702 KVA/25,97,879 KVA), transformers KVA), circuit-breaker switchgears
