The ‘Make in India’ initiative was launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in September, 2014, intended to boost the domestic manufacturing industry and attract foreign investors to invest into the Indian economy. Before the reader discovers how far we have progressed, it is worth reflecting briefly on how this journey began. The ‘Make in India’ program has been built on layers of collaborative effort. Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) invited participation from Union Ministers, Secretaries to the Government of India, State Governments, Industry leaders, and various Knowledge Partners. These exercises resulted in a road map for the single largest manufacturing initiative undertaken by a nation in recent history. They also demonstrated the transformational power of public-private partnership, and became a hallmark of the ‘Make in India’ program. Once the road map was in place, the program began to accelerate. The outdated frameworks of the past were rapidly dismantled and replaced with a transparent and user-friendly system that helped drive investment, foster innovation, develop skills, protect IP and build best-inclass manufacturing infrastructure. It is a powerful galvanizing call to India’s citizens and business leaders and an invitation to potential partners and investors around the world. Most importantly, it represents a complete change of the Government’s mindset – a shift from issuing authority to business partner, in keeping with Prime Minister’s tenet of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance.’

During the last decade Madhya Pradesh has gone through a wide range of economic and social changes. The state has enhanced its capacity from optimum utilization of its natural resources as well as skilled human resources. Its effort in ‘Make in India’ Project is creating a remarkable growth in various sectors like Education, IT, Manufacturing, Renewable and Reusable energy, etc. One of the major steps taken by the state is the creation of the real single – window system to grant clearances for setting up new industries. Make in India is opening investment doors, multiple enterprises are adopting its mantra. The world’s largest democracy is well on its way to become the world’s most powerful economy.
