This project is based on the “Make in India” Initiative (2014) started by the government to boost the national manufacturing sector in India. My area of study is focused towards the Textile and Garment sector. It studies past major reforms by the government to strengthen the industrial sector, which includes Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization (LPG- 1991) and abolition of Multi Fibre Agreement (MFA- 1974-2004) by WTO to facilitate the potential of developing economies like India.
“Make in India” is not something very new announced by government, but has a better approach than the initiatives that came earlier. It talks about Make in India, not only for India, but also for the rest of the world, with good support from the government in terms of ease of doing business. This project aims to study the benefits of new policies and processes, to explore what more benefits are provided to apparel manufacturers by different government bodies, and possible hurdles and solutions. It also comes up with an idea to explore this initiative in rural India.
