What is “Make In India” initiative by Indian Government?
India aims to become an important manufacturing hub for global companies. Before Arabic/Turkish and European/British barbaric invasions in India, say before 1700 AD (till 1947 AD), India alone used to contribute about 35% of World GDP and about 40% of World Manufacturing at that time!

India still has great hidden potential, which many couldn’t see from abroad. Small (population) countries where local Small, Medium & Large scale companies hesitate to enter big market like India due to their various concerns. In order to address this hurdle, Make-In-India initiative is launched by Indian Government to bring together Indian and Global companies to explore possibilities of manufacture in India, supply to Indian market and also to world from same factory set-up in India. Also, to help foreign companies to take part in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) initiatives in about 25 sectors identified by Make-In-India campaign (see teaser below).
One successful example of Make-In-India type idea is – World Automobile industry situated in India. Almost all leading automobile companies (both 2 and 4 wheelers) in the world have industrial plant/ office/Innovation/ IT centre in India. They are manufacturing, Innovating and supplying to Indian as well as world market at one centralized facility.
India has all three ‘D’s required for successful global business –
Demand (India is market of 1.25 billion consumers),
Demography (with 65% population below average age of 35 years is a great advantage for companies to get/train all kinds of skilled manpower),
Democracy (India is world’s largest democracy and Indian culture is inclusive for diversity and new ideas)
