Why Narendra Modi Make In India is indeed a step of a lion

Lets resolve to steer the country to one destination. We have it in us to move in that direction.
Come, make in India", "Come, manufacture in India". Sell in any country of the world but manufacture here. We have got skill, talent, discipline, and determination to do something. We want to give the world a favourable opportunity that come here, "Come, Make in India" and we will say to the world, from electrical to electronics, "Come, Make in India", from automobiles to agro value addition "Come, Make in India", paper or plastic, "Come, Make in India", satellite or submarine "Come, Make in India". Our country is powerful. Come, I am giving you an invitation.

And bang! Forty-one days later at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, Modi announced the launch of India’s most ambitious plan to boost manufacturing in the country in the presence of business stalwarts like Mukesh Ambani, Cyrus Mistry, Kumar Mangalam Birla and Azim Premji.

Through Make In India initiative, government will focus on building physical infrastructure as well as creating a digital network to make India a global hub for manufacturing of goods ranging from cars to softwares, satellites to submarines, pharmaceuticals to ports and paper to power.

This initiative is nothing less but a giant leap or the step of a lion. As we write this, the official Facebook page of Make In India has crossed 120K likes and its twitter handle has more than 13K followers, all this, in a day’s time. Here’s everything about MakeInIndia and why it is a stepping stone towards making India an investment hub.

What is Make In India

Make In India is a new national program designed to transform India into a global manufacturing hub. It contains a raft of proposals designed to urge companies — local and foreign — to invest in India and make the country a manufacturing powerhouse.

Sectors covered

The focus of Make In India programme is on creating jobs and skill enhancement in 25 sectors. These include: automobiles, aviation, chemicals, IT & BPM, pharmaceuticals, construction, defense manufacturing, electrical machinery, food processing, textiles and garments, ports, leather, media and entertainment, wellness, mining, tourism and hospitality, railways, automobile components, renewable energy, mining, bio-technology, space, thermal power, roads and highways and electronics systems.

The logo

The Make In India logo is derived from India’s national emblem. The wheel denotes the peaceful progress and dynamism – a sign from India’s enlightened past, pointing the way to a vibrant future. The prowling lion stands for strength, courage, tenacity and wisdom – values that are every bit as Indian today as they have ever been.

What comes in the package

Global investors have been unsparing in their criticism about complex rules and bureaucratic red tape that delay investment decisions. India ranks 134 out of 189 countries in the World Bank’s ease of doing business index in 2014. As part of Make In India initiative, foreign investment caps in construction will be eased to enable greater participation in the NDA government's 100 smart cities project and affordable housing. The initiative will also target top companies across sectors in identified countries.
