The Make in India initiative was launched in 2014, which aims at promoting India as an important investment destination and a global hub in manufacturing, design and innovation. This initiative also aims to create a conducive environment for investment, development of modern and efficient infrastructure, opening up new sectors for foreign investment and forging a partnership between Government and industry through a positive mind set. With the objective to create an assured domestic demand for manufacturers who are genuinely making in India, an enabling provision to promote domestic value addition in public procurement has been made by issuing the Public Procurement (Preference to Make in India) Order 2017 (amended on 28.05.2018)

Overall performance of manufacturing sector is an interplay of several factors like domestic demand, demand for exports, level of investment and prevailing prices. Several steps to boost domestic manufacturing are being taken as part of schemes such as Start-up India, Ease of Doing Business, Modified Industrial Infrastructure Upgradation Scheme, Business Reform Action Plan and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy.

The scheme for budgetary support to the eligible units located in the States of J&K, Himachal Pradesh, North Eastern States including Sikkim under GST regime has also been notified.
