Quarrying of granite in India is conducted in Rajasthan, Bangalore, Chickmaglur, Hassan, Kolar, Mysore, Mandhya Tumkur, Bellary Raichur districts and at many other locations.
There are very few quarries that have have mining machinery, such as compressors and drilling machines for drilling and blasting, cranes for lifting big blocks, and dampers and trucks for transport. Hence the mining and processing of the granite is done manually. Even the drilling and channeling are done by hand chisels and hammers.
