Why Make In India -
  • The first and most important condition in order to make in India is to have a low inflation regime where policies are predictable and consistent. 
  • High inflation reduces two ingredients of a successful make in India campaign 
1) Capital accumulation &
2) The rate of change in productivity.
  • Beyond inflation, make in India investors will look for policy stability with respect to trade, duties i.e both import and export and taxation. 

Highlight’s of Prime Minister speech –

  • Need to boost investor sentiment 
  • “First Develop India ” vs. “ Foreign Direct Investment” 
  • “Corporate government responsibility” for effective governance 
  • Boost manufacturing to help growth of the middle class and create jobs 
  • Develop a growth oriented environment to enhance ease of doing business 
  • “3D” outlook : Democracy, demography and demand 
  • Channelise India’s rich demographic dividend for competitive advantage 
  • Train man power in an industry-aligned fashion 
  • Implement “Digital India” for an informed citizenry 
  • “Look East and Link West” approach 
  • Integrated clusters with roads, rails, airports and associated infrastructure 
  • State and Centre coordination for export promotion 

Contribution by the Sectors to Economy

Reasons to Choose Manufacturing Sector –

  • Manufacturing sector because major workforce of the country consists of unskilled labor which is engaged in manufacturing sector. 
  • During 2005-2012, India has only created 15 million jobs while as per the data, 10 million people join its workforce every year 
  • Manufacturing offers the surest way to employ millions of workers in middle-income jobs 
  • According to Justin Lin , a former chief economist at the world bank, China will shed 85 million manufacturing jobs in the next few years because of the fast rising wages. India can attract some of these jobs if it can cut bureaucratic hurdles that scare away new business. 

GDP Composition –

  • Manufacturing contributes 17% of India‟s GDP compared to 69% that comes from services and 14% from agriculture 
  • And, of the 474 million Indians who are gainfully employed, only 100 million do manufacturing jobs compared to 232 million who work on farms and 142 million employed in the services businesses. 
  • SME‟s contribute 90% of all industrial units and 40% export within the manufacturing sector 
  • Between 2004 and 2011 manufacturing sector has registering annual growth of around 7.25 per cent 

Current Issue –

  • India imports 65% of the current demand for electronic products, most of it from China. If the situation is left unchanged, the country’s electronics import bill may well surpass its oil import expenses by 2020 
  • While the demand for electronics hardware in India is projected to increase to $400 billion by 2020, the estimated domestic production could rise to $104 billion only 
  • India imported $38.46 million worth of USB flash drives from China in 2013-14 

How this would be achieved -

  • Skill development programs would be launched especially for people from rural and poor ones from urban cities. 
  • 25 key sectors have been short listed such as telecommunications, power, automobile, tourism, pharmaceuticals and others. 
  • Individuals aged 15-35 years would get high quality training in the following key areas such as welding, masonries, painting, nursing to help elder people. 
  • Skill certifications would be given to make training process, a standard. Currently manufacturing in India suffers due to low productivity rigid laws and poor infrastructure resulting in low quality products getting manufactured. 
  • Over 1000 training centres would be opened across India in the next 2 years. 

Benefits from Make In India Campaign -

  • This will help in creating job market for over 10 million people in India 
  • Manufacturing done here would boost India’s GDP, trade and economic grow
