Dear Siva,
The HR knowledge and basics of HR remain same, irrespective of the Industry. The working and the laws differ from Industry to industry... For example the Manufacturing have many more laws to consider than the Shops and Establishment.
So as far as you have the knowledge to deal with Unions and Govt. Officials and your basic HR knowledge is Strong and updated, there should not be any problem where in they should reject your canditure.
Kindly prepare your CV, where People Skills and Negotation Skills and the Basic HR knowledge is reflected in writing.

Dear colleague,

Yes, transition to manufacturing is possible. Though HR functions remain same in every set up, the emphasis and demands on certain functions will be more. Every HR person need to have deep understanding of how the business is organised, competition and factors that matter for its success. Most important is to find bearings of HR functions with the business imperatives and execute by aligning them for winning. If you find out how you can add value- depends on what functions are prioritised by the top man- like talent acquisition and retention,
performance management, compnsation design/ restructuring, union- management relationship apart from streamlining routine administrative functions by automising them etc.

Given basic capabilities as above, I don't believe working in any set up - manufacturing or non -manufacturing will matter.
