India - Loss due to corrosion can be 4 per cent of GDP and no proper study available to show the exact loss, says Director, CECRI - Our comment: Establishment of collaboration is completely ignored by the concerned establishments

The annual loss due to corrosion has been estimated at about 4 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Vijayamohanan K. Pillai, Director of CSIR-Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CECRI), said and exuded confidence that the 17th National Congress on Corrosion Control, which got off here on Thursday, would evolve strategies to mitigate the problem.

Speaking at the inauguration of the three-day congress organised by National Corrosion Council of India (NCCI), in collaboration with CSIR-CECRI, Indian Oil Corporation and Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), he said scientists, engineers, technologists and industrialists would evolve strategies to mitigate different types of corrosion.

Later talking to reporters, Mr. Pillai said though there was no proper study available to show the exact loss due to different types of corrosion, it had been estimated at 2 to 4 per cent of the GDP.

  1. There are many reasons for gaps in the present approach (https://corrosionsurveyinindia.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/factors-responsible-for-flaws-and-gaps.jpg). The prime most requirement for closing these gaps is collaboration between various resources. This is completely ignored by the associated establishments.
