What is Make in India?

Make in India is a quite popular initiative. Very rarely though, we come across questions like, “What is Make in India all about?” So, we thought of explaining the campaign to you anyway!

The Make in India program was launched in New Delhi by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 25 September 2014. This was an initiative to invite the main business investors from all over the world (national and international) to invest in India. But this is a big opportunity for all investors to set up their business in any sector in the country (production, textiles, automobiles, construction, retail, chemicals, IT, ports, medicine, hospitality, tourism, health, railways, leather, etc.). This attractive scheme for foreign companies has a resource-rich proposal for setting up manufacturing powerhouses in India.

To make it a global hub for trade (from satellite to submarine, from car to software, from medicinal to port, from paper to energy, etc.), with the improvement of the digital network market in the country, India is focused on building effective physical infrastructure.

 The Make in India campaign symbol (derived from the national emblem of India) is a huge lion with many wheels (indicating the path of peaceful progress and bright future). A lion with multiple wheels indicates courage, strength, tenacity and intelligence.
