    10Make in India:

    Make in India was a type of Swadeshi movement which was launched by the Narendra Modi government in September 2014, whose aim was to encourage Indian as well as Multinational companies to manufacture in India, as well as to increase their investments. Foreign Direct Investment was increased to 100% in all 25 sectors except for space, defence and news media. As a result of the launch, a plethora of established companies decided to set up shop in India. The Japanese car company, Kia Motors invested the US $1.1 billion towards a car manufacturing plant in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. This would be the maiden foray of Kia into the Indian automobile sector. The plant is expected to hire 3,000 people and manufacture 300,000 cars annually. Kia would eventually invest the US $2 billion in India and end up generating more than 10,000 jobs in the Indian market. Thurst Aircraft Pvt Ltd has also signed a MoU with the Maharashtra government to build an aeroplane manufacturing plant with an investment of US $5.2 billion.

    Indian Army also announced an ammunition production project worth more than Us $7.5 billion. Under the project, 11 private firms will manufacture and supply ammunition for the Army’s tanks, rockets, air defence system, artillery guns, infantry combat vehicles, grenade launchers and other field weapons. Foxconn would be investing Us $5 billion in the next five years for a research and manufacturing facility in Maharashtra. Saudi Arabian oil giant, Aramco has also signed a deal with a consortium of Indian refiners to build a US $44 billion refineries on the West coast. As a result, India was instated as the top destination globally for foreign direct investments in 2015 with Us $60.1 billion received in FDI. India was able to rise 42 places on ‘Ease of Doing Business’ index, and 32 places on World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index.

    I'm a huge Nadal & Liverpool fan. A massive foodie who is crazy about GoT, Harry Potter, Calvin & Hobbes and Friends, I love reading non/historical fiction. Used to be a tennis player before work caught up. Tennis has now been conveniently substituted by cycling.I am an avid traveler who believes that the pleasure is in the journey!


    1. In parliamentary democracy one should cultivate habit of resisting opposition too.If you have only derogatory remarks for others always and round O’clock next time in future your work will also be assessed in the same manner.Who ever is our PM we must understand that citizen of country must criticize politicians but some of their acheivements be taken note of.For instance we have reached at Mars,Build our own fighter plan and navy getting robust.From zero to hero is our journey.”This is said Rome was not build in a day”.Same way who is in power does some mistakes but one shoud abstain from abusing others for what is not done instead praising what has been done.

      • Many of the targets achived are not to do with any of political agenda; so nothing great politically; rather divisive society, relationship with opposing view points are something of political value; political representation itself is the consolidation of relationship, be domestic or international, community or within family; any antagonism in such front; disaster mgt., healthcare, job creation are what Govt. and political parties to do with. In such areas our society has increasingly becoming unstable. Just forget about roads, buildings and parks which are seems to be made at the mass expense for few to enjoy; all such decorations are not going to meet the mass aspirations. Rather social fabric has been distorted away from the vision of freedom motto.

    2. This media, really making fun out of Modi, I believe. All failed deeds of modi are under the tag of massive achievement. What is it? Modi is a born liar.

    3. His greatest achievement is being the most inefficient PM India ever had. Any one with a slight intention to improve the country would have made the bureaucracy (the tool for governance) accountable and efficient. He made it far worse by doing nothing – obviously he had no intention to rule. His digital India has non functioning portals which takes minutes and hours to respond and finally telling time out – worse than the Q before the babus – His government proved that computers and portals can be made slower than an Indian government office. His government also invented portals to register complaint claiming to solve issues within 48 hours and they declare the issue solved without taking any action on the complaint – which now private companies also learned from the government portals – making life impossible for the citizens.

    4. for distributing million poor people with LPG gas, on paper looks wonderful but unfortunately for the taxpayers of India, it is a seer publicity move by BJP govt at the center at the cost of Indian Taxpayers, As first full gas cylinders, gas burners etc all are given free of cost to the poor people WITHOUT LOOKING INTO THE FACT THAT THESE PEOPLE DO NOT EARN ENOUGH TO AFFORD REFILLING GAS EVEN AT SUBSIDIZED RATE!!!
