The ‘Make in India’ initiative was launched by our Honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, in September 2014 as part of a wider set of nation-building initiatives. Devised to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub, this initiative was a timely response to a critical situation where India’s growth rate saw its lowest level in a decade. Make in India was launched against the backdrop of this crisis, and quickly became a rallying cry for India’s innumerable stakeholders and partners.
Make in India, represents a comprehensive and unprecedented overhaul of out-dated processes and policies and a complete change of the Government’s mindset. It is a much refreshing shift from issuing authority to business partner, in keeping with Prime Minister's tenet of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’.
