It z because the main motive of the investors n other productive agents is to maximise their profits. So in order to achieve their objectives they in most of the cases invest in capital intensive industries so as to get high returns. And the result. Thus is. What India is suffering from. !

Capital intensive industries is type of segment in which Bulk investment is required along with these setup act as backbone for any economy.But with gradual span of time industries have multiplied due to enterprenurship growth in India . Along with Globalisation that trigrred the intense competetion and the way to survie is Profit only. But India is Still Agrobased economy so this sector need emphasis.

What is the meaning of opition B C & D ?

Aditya said: (Nov 28, 2013)  
Investment patterns are only picking up off late into capital industries. Shouldn't that mean it is not the factor that is maintaining steadiness? It is the one reason for change? In the previous years. At least say last decade. We were never largely into capital intensive industry investment.

Investment in capital intensive industries mean that more capital is employed and less labourers are engaged and thus there has not been any shift from primary to secondary sector.

The answer states investment towards capital intensive industries increased. If so the occupational structure would have directed towards manufacturing industries, but still, the majority of Indians still depend on agriculture so how A?

Mukesh said: (Jun 6, 2017)  
Capital intensive industries majorly need heavy machines and non-movable assets and a lot of time to be stabalized. Also, it gives a stable economic growth. But the additional feature is that these requirements make these industries very slow growing sectors, as in technical development as well as economic growth, hence giving us a long time investment sector.

That's why if our government invested in this, then it will be in the same pattern for the long time.
