What the government is missing in formulating Make in India is design thinking
Of late, the government’s “Make in India" programme, which intends to transform India into a global manufacturing hub, has led to considerable debate. To some, it intends to foster innovation and build the economy by attracting foreign investment to develop infrastructure in the manufacturing sector. To others, it focuses on domestically manufacturing products innovated by foreign firms. However, unless R&D is strengthened and the manufacturing ecosystem for homegrown entrepreneurs is developed, Make in India will not help the nation emerge as an innovation hub.
