HOW TO SET UP A MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY IN INDIA| MANUFACTURING PLANT SET UP IN INDIA

INTRODUCTION

India has a GDP of $2.3 trillion and is the world’s ninth-largest economy by purchasing power parity ($8 trillion). Despite this, manufacturing accounts for only 16 percent of the country’s GDP, compared to approximately 52 percent for the services sector. India generates barely 2% of global industrial output, a tenth of what its neighbour China does. Manufacturing expansion is critical for India’s economic prosperity. In order to take advantage of the present demographic dividend, India will need to produce approximately one million jobs per month for the next ten years. Manufacturing has the ability to give large-scale employment for the youthful Indian population, allowing a huge segment of the people to escape poverty. In order to foster and accelerate the expansion of the country’s manufacturing sector, the Indian government has adopted “Make in India” as a fundamental policy programme. India has various advantages that could help it become a manufacturing powerhouse, including a vast pool of engineers, a young labour force, salaries half those in China, and huge domestic consumption of produced goods. These variables become even more crucial as China, the world’s leading manufacturing location, faces labour shortages and pay increases that is outpacing inflation. Manufacturing has emerged as one of India’s fastest-growing industries. Mr. Narendra Modi, India’s Prime Minister, initiated the “Make in India” programme to promote India as a manufacturing powerhouse around the world.

ESSENTIALS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • Choose a Location- Because the location is such an important aspect of a business, choose a location for your factory or manufacturing unit. Decide on the market where you’ll sell your goods as well.
  • Make a proper team- After you’ve decided on a location and product line, you should hire seasoned manufacturers. Distribute tasks and duties among departments like as operations, sales, marketing, inventory management, and public relations, among others.
  • Apply for Licenses and Registrations- Any business that does not have a license or registration is deemed illegal. As a result, seek professional guidance and complete MSME/NSIC company registration in order to carry out manufacturing activities.

CONCLUSION 

India is a desirable location for foreign manufacturing ventures. Several mobile phones, luxury, and automobile brands, among others, have established or are considering doing so in the country. India’s manufacturing sector has the potential to exceed $1 trillion in revenue by 2025. With a GDP of US$ 2.5 trillion and a population of 1.32 billion people, the adoption of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) will turn India into a common market, attracting investors. Production industries differ greatly in terms of size, location, product, manufacturing process, techniques used, workforce, total product value, and societal relevance. The type of raw materials utilized in the manufacturing process, as well as the impact of the manufacturing process on the entire ecological system, have been significantly considered in recent years. Starting a new manufacturing company can be a difficult endeavour. To start a manufacturing business, one must examine a variety of aspects such as product line, market, and location. The government is focusing on establishing industrial corridors and smart cities in order to secure the country’s overall growth. The corridors will also help in integrating, monitoring, and building a favourable environment for industrial development, as well as promoting advanced manufacturing methods.
