The potential for application of elevators and escalators in India is increasing tremendously. The state of art, however, is not satisfactory. There are several reasons, important ones are mismatch between lift selections and traffic conditions and inadequacy of existing Indian Technology to increase the reliability and reduce maintenance overheads. This paper describes relevant facts by concrete examples and stress the need of reorganising specifications for carrying capacity, speed and riding comforts suitable for Indian environment. Further authors feel that the consulting activity in this area has to be developed in India.
