The Prime Minister of India, Mr Narendra Modi,has
launched the ‘Make in India’ initiative to place India on the world map
as a manufacturing hub and give global recognition to the Indian
economy. As a result of this, India’s manufacturing sector could touch US$ 1 trillion by 2025. Several
mobile phone, luxury and automobile brands, among others, have set up
or are looking to establish their manufacturing bases in the country.
The focus of the Make in India programme is on 25 sectors.
Thanks to this initiative and the increase in foreign direct investment, the year 2016 is anticipated to create about 3.5 million job opportunities.
A survey conducted by the Indian arm of US-based staffing firm,
ManpowerGroup, said, employers predict an increase of almost 42% in the
hiring numbers. “Industries like manufacturing and automation will now
witness a major boost,” said AG Rao, group MD, ManpowerGroup India, at
the “Make in India” week celebration in February 2016.
Growth, Productivity, Efficiency, Return on Investment are all terms
associated with Automation. To achieve the goals that we, as a country,
have set for ourselves, Automation is a necessity. Opportunities are tremendous and growth potential is enormous. What is needed is Knowledge & Skill, which is where we come in.
