Make in India


Development of a robust manufacturing sector is a key priority of Indian Government. The sector has the potential to not only take economic growth to a higher trajectory, but also to provide employment to a large pool of our young labour force. “Make in India” campaign launched on September 25, 2014 provides investors – both domestic and overseas – a conducive environment to manufacture in India and at the same time will also create job opportunities. “Make in India” also represents an attitudinal shift in how India relates to investors: not as a permit-issuing authority, but as a true business partner. Pillars of Make in India are bringing in ease of doing business; providing an enabling ecosystem; opening up and liberation of FDI in key sectors and providing deep facilitation support to investors through Invest India, the National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency.

FDI has shown an extremely positive trend since the launch of Make in India with growth of more than 50% since the launch of the initiative. Some of the global rankings where India has shown improvements after Make in India launch are highlighted below:

  • India moved up to the sixth position amongst the world’s leading manufacturers. (Source: UNIDO)
  • India has jumped 15 spots to reach 66th position in 2016 in global innovation index. (Source: WIPO)
  • India improved its performance as per the Logistics Performance Index by 19 positions (Source: The World Bank)
  • India has jumped 32 places to the 39th rank in two years in the Global Competitiveness Index (Source: World Economic Forum)
  • India was rated as the most preferred investment destination for global investors in 2015 by Ernst Young.

With the country’s economy recording a staggering 7.6% growth in the last year and investments pouring in from global industry corporations post Make in India launch (see marquee investors under Investor Desk), India is showing a future filled with opportunities.
