Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday said India is at a "nascent stage" in industrial engineering study and research, which is essential for creating robust supply chains.

Speaking at the National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) here, Goyal said "we need to do a lot on this front and there exists a high scope for the same".

Goyal, who was earlier the Minister for Railways, recounted that the Indian Railways was struggling to get solutions on the organisation research front till IIT-Bombay came up with solutions.

 IIT's work will help the railways and soon it will be coming out with a revised timetable structure which has its roots in the research.

Goyal said the closely interconnected global economies require significant value addition on the supply chains front, like improving the processes on packaging and warehousing.

The minister said the research and planning for making supply chains should not be restricted to the private sector alone, and we need such efforts on the delivery of public services as well.
