India Country Kit for Civil 3D

Well, as you know I am not a Civil 3D expert, I have been very impressed by this application and its capabilities. Now what make me curious to follow this product is its wealth of features which support the “Sustainability” initiatives. And good news is that recently one of our Product Managers Neeraj Dixit informed me that we have our “India Country Kit for Civil 3D 2009” now available for download
In order to understand little more about this I took time from him to understand its uses. I am sure you might find it useful in case you or your colleagues (share with them) use Civil 3D or doing Civil works. Please check the excerpts below of our discussion:
