MAKE IN INDIA: Opportunities through Innovation

By Gopalakrishnan U (B.E.Production, 2011-15)

Innovation is the key to sustained industrial growth and penetration of the global market. Creating a robust national innovation system is one of the key elements listed in the Science Technology Innovation Policy 2013 (STIP 2013) of the Government of India. Technology innovation and its diffusion are very important for manufacturing sectors and service industries. Government of India has recently launched the campaign “Make in India” to create innovation and investment friendly environment in the country and is taking new policy initiatives to spread globally competitive technologies for enabling the country to become a strong manufacturing hub. This campaign focused on fulfilling the purpose of job creation, boosting national economy and to get global recognition to the Indian economy so that foreign investment gets impetus in realizing dreams of making India a hub of manufacturing industries.nrdc3
