How can India become a manufacturing country?
Q: How can India become a manufacturing country? – asked by Arvindh, 21-Mar-2015
A: For India to become manufacturing country many things have to change. Very good roads, railways, airports and seaports are essential. There cannot be any compromise on access to good infrastructure. The manufacturing needs to be driven by people who are near 30 years of age. They look for extremely high internet connectivity and least influence from bureaucracy. The current generation wants dominance and control over their products and are unwilling to share the entitlement with corrupt bureaucrats and greedy politicians.
There is enough room to accommodate a new thinking; a thinking that excites the competition among entrepreneurs. It is very easy to know that man has created things to consume, far more number of times than required. Now has come the time for protection of environment, green energy, waste recycling and low on stress jobs. The Governments must invest in research and development so as to create an ecosystem where high quality competition will flourish. Only then the new generation will be able to innovate and invent fresh solutions that can be consumed. The burden of regulatory norms must be replaced with incentives such as tax holidays. These above considerations will make it easy for entrepreneurs to convert India into a manufacturing nation.
We cannot claim our people are talented until they submit themselves to learn and then be skilled. The understanding of work culture that is required for a manufacturing nation is that it is work output that converts to income and compensation.
