Ahead of the ‘Make in India’ campaign launch at Vigyan Bhawan on September 25, 2014, the Government led by PM Narendra Modi is making all necessary arrangements for big announcements at the event.

The campaign will focus on FDI, manufacturing policy, industrial corridors and IP rights. DIPP has set up an eight-member expert panel for escalations and to handle queries and quick response time. ASSOCHAM believes that this will significantly improve ease of doing business in India and attract investments to provide a fillip to manufacturing growth.

ASSOCHAM believes that the following areas are critical for the Campaign to be a success:

  • Create appropriate channels of transportation by having a well connected arterial road network, eventually contributing to setting up of new businesses across the country, helping in decongestion of existing manufacturing hubs

  • Establish a single window system for digitization of more than 100 central and state level permits. ASSOCHAM is confident this approach will bring intelligence to the clearance process and enable ease of doing business in India

  • Relax the conditions related to the distance of projects from state boundaries and areas with critical levels of pollution

ASSOCHAM is confident that the PM’s ‘Make in India’ initiative focusing on strengthening and reviving a range of sectors such as automotive and manufacturing, renewable energy, metals and mining, textiles, biotech and pharma, defence, railways, tourism, hospitality, amongst others, is a step in the right direction towards driving job creation and investments.

Sincerely,

Rana Kapoor

President, ASSOCHAM
