POLICY STRUCTURE OF MAKE IN INDIA
The government of India is making a huge effort in order to reduce any type of burden on investors. Due to this, there is an arrangement of a dedicated web portal for solving all the queries from business entities. This portal is now receiving an excellent response. Government has created a dedicated back end support team, so that response can be given within 72 hours of the duration. Almost 25 key sectors like aviation, chemicals, IT, automobiles, textiles, ports, pharmaceuticals, hospitality, tourism, wellness and railways have been identified by the government to work for the investors and become world leaders.
MAKE IN INDIA IN DEFENCE SECTOR
Make in India has played a huge role in the defence industry of the country. Various companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Rafael industries, etc have invested in India and set up factories through which there is large-scale production of weapon systems for the use by Indian armed forces. Some success has been the making of attack helicopters Apaches and transport helicopters chinook and other weapon systems like AK203 rifles and much more. This has helped in providing jobs and help India in developing its defence industry on a large scale. Also, the transfer of technology from these companies is helping India becoming self- reliant in the field of defence production.
In my views, to make India free of unemployment by bringing development and growth policy is an urgent need of the hour. We can downsize poverty in India to a great level by solving the unemployment issue for youths. Thus, this campaign will help us achieve a new height. This may help in solving various economic disparities in the country.
