Make in India 2

The Minister of State for Commerce and Industry C. R. Chaudhary has given update on the Make in India initiative which was launched on 25 Sept 2014.

He updated the Rajya Sabha on 27 Dec 2017 on sectors:

1. Foreign Direct Investment

The total Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflow was US$160.79 billion between April 2014 and March 2017 – representing 33% of the cumulative FDI in India since April 2000.

In 2015-16, FDI inflow crossed the US$50 billion mark in one fiscal year, for the first time ever. In 2016-17, FDI inflow stood at a record of US$60 billion, highest ever recorded for a fiscal year ever.

FDI policy and procedure have been simplified and liberalized progressively.

2. Ease of Doing Business

Steps taken to improve ease of doing business include simplification and rationalisation of existing rules. As a result of the measures taken to improve the country’s investment climate, India jumped a massive 30 places to 100th in World Bank’s ease of doing business rankings as per World Bank Group’s ‘Doing Business 2018: Reforming to Create Jobs’ report.

This is driven by reforms in the areas of Starting a Business, Construction Permits, Getting Credit, Protecting Minority Investors, Paying Taxes, Trading across Borders, Enforcing Contracts, and Resolving Insolvency.
