Centre plans to publish Make in India report card

In a bid to blunt the Opposition’s criticism on the Make in India programme, the NDA government is working towards bringing a report card highlighting investments received and jobs created in various sectors, since the launch of the ‘much-hyped’ campaign.

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), in association with various other departments, will come out with a report card detailing the achievements made, a senior official in the DIPP told Deccan Herald.

Claiming that since the launch of the Make In India campaign, a large number of foreign investors have shown interest in the manufacturing sector, an official said, adding that sectors like leather, IT, telecom, solar energy and automobile have made strides in attracting investments, said the official.

The DIPP is gathering details from various ministries about investments received by them since the launch of the campaign, and details of investments are in the pipeline. The report card will have details of investments in each sector and jobs created so far.

Since the launch of the campaign, FDI inflows into the manufacturing sector increased by an annual 45 per cent. In fact, in FY15, FDI inflows grew an annual 26.15 per cent at $31.8 billion, as against 10 per cent, a year ago, at $ 25.27 billion, said the official. The major objective behind the initiative is to focus on 25 sectors of the economy for job creation and skill enhancement. Some of these sectors are: automobiles, chemicals, IT, pharmaceuticals, textiles, ports, aviation, leather, tourism and hospitality, wellness, railways, auto components, design manufacturing, renewable energy, mining, and bio-technology.
