India National Manufacturing Policy - CLUSTERING AND AGGREGATION Policy and Programmes

9. CLUSTERING AND AGGREGATION: NATIONAL
INVESTMENT AND MANUFACTURING ZONES
The National Investment and Manufacturing Zones (NIMZs) will be developed as
integrated industrial townships with state-of-the art infrastructure and land use on the
basis of zoning; clean and energy efficient technology; necessary social
infrastructure; skill development facilities, etc., to provide a productive environment
to persons transitioning from the primary sector to the secondary and tertiary
sectors. These NIMZs would be managed by SPVs which would ensure master
planning of the Zone; pre-clearances for setting up the industrial units to be located
within the zone and undertake such other functions as specified in the various
sections of this policy. To enable the NIMZ to function as a self governing and
autonomous body, it will be declared by the State Government as an Industrial
Township under Art 243 Q(c) of the Constitution. In sum, the NIMZs would be large
areas of developed land, with the requisite eco-system for promoting world class
manufacturing activity. They would be different from SEZs in terms of size, level of
infrastructure planning, and governance structures related to regulatory procedures
and exit policies.
9.1 Land for NIMZs
(a) Size of land for NIMZ – An NIMZ would have an area of at least 5000
hectares in size.
(b) Availability of land
i. Government owned land;
- The State Government will be responsible for selection
of land suitable for development of the NIMZ including land acquisition if
necessary. The land may constitute:
ii. Private lands falling within the proposed NIMZ, to be acquired by the State
Government;
iii. Land under existing industrial areas/estates/sick and defunct units including
PSUs.
Guiding principles
i. Preferably in waste lands; infertile and dry lands not suitable for cultivation;
- Following guiding principles will be applied by the State
Government for the purpose:
ii. Use of agricultural land to the minimum;
iii. All acquisition proceedings to specify a viable resettlement and rehabilitation
plan;
iv. Reasonable access to basic resources like water;
v. It should not be within any ecologically sensitive area or closer than the
minimum distance specified for such an area.
(c) Ownership
i) Keep the ownership with state government itself;
– It is left to the State Government to adopt a model that it
considers most workable. It may:
ii) transfer the ownership to a state government undertaking;
iii) Have joint ownership with a private partner;
iv) Adopt any other appropriate model.
(d) Irrespective of the model adopted, the state government will ensure that the
land can be mortgaged by the prospective allottees for securing financial
assistance from banks/FIs.
(e) After identification of the land, it will be the responsibility of the state
government to get the environmental impact study conducted for a
prospective NIMZ. DIPP in consultation with Ministry of Environment &
Forests will notify designated agencies for conducting the study.
(f) At least 30% of the total land area proposed for the NIMZ will be utilized for
location of manufacturing units. The states may reserve a certain
percentage of the land as appropriate, in a zone, for MSMEs.
(g) The State Government will bear the cost of the resettlement & rehabilitation
package for the owners of acquired lands, if any. An arrangement to recover
the costs could be put in place in collaboration with the SPV.
9.2 Administrative Structure for NIMZs
The administrative structure of NIMZ will comprise of a Special Purpose Vehicle, a
developer, State Government and the Central Government.
9.2.1Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV):
The Central Government shall, by notification in the Official Gazette, notify an NIMZ.
An SPV will be constituted to exercise the powers conferred on, and discharge the
functions assigned to it under this Policy to manage the affairs of the NIMZ. Every
SPV shall be a legal entity by the name of the NIMZ. This SPV can be a company,
including a Section 25 company depending upon the MOU between stakeholders.
9.2.2Constitution of SPV
Keeping in view the financial participation of different stakeholders (govt., public
sector or private participants), an appropriate financial and administrative structure of
the SPV will be agreed to among different stakeholders giving due representation to
nominees of different stakeholders on the Board of SPV. The CEO of the SPV will
be a senior Central/State government official. The SPV will include an official/expert
conversant with the work relating to pollution control/environmental protection.
There shall be a provision to have a suitable representation of the allottees and
subsequently the industrial units.
9.2.3
1. Master planning of the Zone.
Functions of SPV
Each SPV will undertake such tasks/measures as it thinks fit for the development,
growth, operation and management of the NIMZ. These tasks/measures will include:
2. Preparation of a strategy for development of the Zone and an action plan for
self regulation to serve the purpose of the policy. These shall be submitted to
the Board of Approval.
3. Selection of Developer/Co-developers for the development and maintenance
of infrastructure internal to the NIMZ;
4. Formulation of rules and procedures for development, operation, regulation
and management of the NIMZ;
5. Enforcement of the above rules and Master Plan;
6. Obtaining prior environmental clearance under the provisions of EIA
Notification 2006, if the area is more than 500 ha and the clearances under
the Air and Water Act as applicable to an individual unit, which clearances
would be expedited/facilitated by SPV.
7. Working out an arrangement with the State Government regarding revenue
streams including levy of user or service charges or fees or rent for the use of
infrastructure/properties in the NIMZ and creation of specific mechanisms for
specialized services. As far as possible, land to manufacturing industry will
be provided on land cost plus development charge basis with the option of
payment in installments. Workers’ housing will be provided at reasonable
rates with cross subsidization from high end residential/commercial areas, if
necessary.
8. Promotion of investment, both foreign and domestic, into the NIMZ;
9. Implementation of Resettlement & Rehabilitation package;
 10. Any other function as may be decided mutually between state government
and other stakeholders.
9.3. Developer
SPV can take up the work of development on its own through various
agencies/contractors or take up the development in partnership with a developer
who shall be selected through a transparent process. Development can be in
stages.
9.4. State Government:
9.4.1 Water Requirement
In keeping with the overall master plan, the SPV will work out the requirement of
water both for industrial and housing activities. The state government, as far as
possible, will allocate surface water from sources from which it would be viable to
draw water for the NIMZ. The NIMZ would be enabled to have/own facilities for
tapping/extraction, treatment and distribution of water. There should be a long term
agreement with SPV on water rate payable on raw water linked to WPI or any other
suitable index.
9.4.2 Power connectivity
i. State Government will facilitate the creation of captive power plants by Private
Players (including the SPV of the NIMZ) with full authority for generation,
transmission and distribution. The units will also be allowed to seek open access
as per the regulations of the State Electricity Regulatory Commission;
- The generation, transmission and distribution of
electricity in NIMZ will be facilitated as follows:
ii. The SPV or its agent, for the NIMZ shall be deemed to have license to supply
electricity and develop the distribution network for the same and shall be
deemed to be a licensee under section 14 of Electricity Act, 2003;
iii. The SPV or its agent will have an option to purchase electricity for NIMZ from
any State Electricity Company/Corporation or any other generator of electricity
including Central PSU.


9.4.3 Infrastructure linkages -
The State Government, applying for NIMZ, will ensure that after notifying the area, all
physical infrastructure and utilities linkages under its jurisdiction are provided within
one year from the date of notification failing which the NIMZ may be denotified.
9.4.4 Any other functions as mentioned in specific sections of this policy.
9.5. Central Government: The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion will
act as the nodal agency for the central government in matters pertaining to the
NIMZs.
The application for setting-up of NIMZ will be forwarded by the state to the DIPP for
approval. DIPP will constitute a Board of Approval, which will consider all
applications for establishment of NIMZs and approve such proposals as are found
feasible. Each NIMZ will be notified separately by DIPP.
In case an amendment is required to the concept and design of the project, as
encapsulated in the preliminary project report submitted by the State Government,
the same will be considered by the Board of Approval.
9.5.1Role
i. The Central Government will bear the cost of master planning for the NIMZ;
:
ii. The Central Government will improve/provide external physical infrastructure
linkages to the NIMZs including Rail, Road (National Highways), Ports, Airports,
and Telecom, in a time bound manner. This infrastructure will be
created/upgraded through Public Private Partnerships to the extent possible.
Viability Gap Funding through existing schemes will be provided. Wherever
necessary, requisite budgetary provisions for creation of these linkages will also
be made;
iii. The Central Government through its institutions and schemes will provide
institutional infrastructure for productivity, quality (testing facilities etc.) and
design capabilities, encouraging innovation and skill development within the
NIMZ;
iv. The Central Government will undertake, along with the State Government
concerned, the promotion of domestic as well as global investments in NIMZs;
v. Any other role as mentioned in specific sections of this policy.
9.6.
Infrastructure development in an NIMZ would require large investments which cannot
be drawn solely from public financing. Such projects have long gestation periods and
substantial lead time before income streams commence. While latent demand may
exist for the zone, its actual materialization will take place only when the
infrastructure projects have been implemented and technical tie-ups have been
made. It is envisaged that the infrastructure development of the zone will in a large
number of cases be undertaken by private developers. Given the afore-stated nature
of this activity, there is a need to provide appropriate financial support/incentives to
the developers.
Funding of internal infrastructure in an NIMZ
9.6.1 For this purpose:

i) Viability Gap Funding (VGF): Under the Ministry of Finance ‘Scheme for Support to
Public Private Partnerships in Infrastructure’ in the form of capital grant at the
stage of project construction will be given as per the VGF guidelines. The total
Viability Gap Funding under this scheme shall not exceed twenty percent of the
total project cost. Additionally, the State Government or its agencies may also
provide funding out of their budget as may be feasible.
ii) Long term soft loans from multilateral financial institutions: Soft loans from
multilateral institutions will be explored for funding infrastructure development in
NIMZ. Assistance would be provided for negotiating non-sovereign multilateral
loans by providing back-to-back support, if necessary.
iii) External Commercial Borrowings: The developers of NIMZs will be allowed to
raise ECBs for developing the internal infrastructure of the NIMZs.

मंच पर विराजमान मंत्रि परिषद के मेरे सभी साथी, उद्योग जगत के सभी मित्र भिन्‍न भिन्‍न देशों के सभी राजदूत और बहुत बड़ी संख्‍या में पधारे हुए नौजवान दोस्‍तों,

मैं श्रीमान रविशंकर प्रसाद और उनकी टीम को ह्दय से बहुत बहुत अभिनंदन करता हूं बधाई देता हूं कि उन्‍होंने comprehensive integrated approach के साथ भारत के भविष्‍य को बदलने का एक खाका खींचा है और जिस बारीकी से सारी योजनाओं की रचना की है, मुझे विश्‍वास है कि करोड़ों देशवासी जिन सपनो को संजो रहे हैं वे सपने साकार हो कर रहेंगे।

उद्योग जगत के कुछ मित्रों को यहां मंच पर, डिजिटल इंडिया के संदर्भ में वे क्‍या सोचते हैं वे क्‍या कर सकते हैं के विचार हमे सुनने को मिले। हमारे रविशंकरप्रसाद जी हिसाब लगा रहे थे बैठे बैठे, कि वो क्‍या बोल रहे हैं और उन्‍होंने मुझे बताया है कि करीब करीब साढे चार लाख करोड़ रूपये का investment.. और करीब करीब 18 लाख लोगों को रोजगार.. और यह तो जो ऊपर बैठे हैं उन्‍होंने बताया हैं और नीचे बहु‍त बड़ी मात्रा में बैठे हैं.. उनका अभी सुनना बाकी है। यहां बहुत बड़ी मात्रा में इस क्षेत्र में पहले से ही काम करने वाले उद्योग जगत के मित्र बैठे हैं।

वक्‍त बहुत तेजी से बदल चुका है। पहले हम लोग कभी किसी परिवार में जाते थे और छोटे बच्‍चे से बात करते थे तो बच्‍चा क्‍या करता था? अगर आपका चश्‍मा है तो खींच के ले जाता था या आपकी जेब में पेन है तो उसको उठाता था। लेकिन आज आप मार्क करना कि वह न चश्‍मे को हाथ लगाता है न पेन को हाथ लगाता है वह आपका मोबाइल फोन छीनता है। मोबाईल फोन हाथ में आते ही ठीक से पकड़ता है, आप मार्क करना.. और अपना शुरू कर देता है और अगर, जैसा चाहे वैसा आपरेशन नहीं होता तो रोने लगता है यानी बाकी वह कुछ समझे या ना समझे डिजिटल ताकत को समझता है। समय की मांग है कि हम इस बदलाव को समझें और अगर हम इस बदलाव को नहीं समझेंगे तो हम कहीं पड़ रहेंगे कोने में दुनिया दूर चली जाएगी और हम देखते ही रह जायेंगे एक समय था कि सदियों पहले लोग बसते थे, नदी के तट पर। गांव बसते थे, शहर बसते थे नदी के तट पर या समुंदर के किनारे पर।

वक्‍त बदल गया बाद में जहां जहां से हाइवे गुजरते थे, शहर वहां बसना शुरू हुए लेकिन अब मानव जा‍ति वहीं पर बसेगी जहां से ऑप्टिकल फाइबर गुजरता होगा। ये बहुत बड़ा बदलाव आया है और इसलिए अगर विश्‍व के अंदर सवा सौ करोड़ का देश, अपनी ताकत का अहसास कराना चाहता है तो जो हजारो साल पुरानी महान संस्‍कति है.. हम सवा सौ करोड़ देश वासी हैं, हम 65 प्रतिशत 35 साल से कम उम्र के हैं, ये गीत गाने से बात बनने वाली नहीं है। ये जो भी विरासत है, जो सामर्थ्‍य है, उसके साथ आधुनिक विज्ञान को, आधुनिक टेक्‍नॉलॉजी को जोड़ना अनिवार्य है। अगर demographic dividend.. इसको अगर digital strength नहीं मिलेगी तो ये demographic dividend ..हम global level पर जितनी मात्रा में फायदा उठाना चाहिए नहीं उठा पायेंगे। इसलिए देश को तैयार करने की आवश्‍यकता है। आज हमारे देश में करीब करीब 25 करोड़-तीस करोड़ internet users हैं। users की संख्‍या में तो दुनिया में ये संख्‍या बहुत बड़ी है लेकिन जो इससे वंचित है वो संख्‍या भी दुनिया के हिसाब से बड़ी है। जिनकी अपनी पहुंच थी जिनकी अपनी ताकत थी जो खुद कर सकता था, जिसको ज़रूरत थी, उन्‍होंने तो अपना कर लिया। लेकिन जो खुद नहीं कर सकता है, उसको उसके नसीब पर छोड़ देना चाहिए क्‍या? देश का एक तबका.. वो तो Digital world के साथ बहुत तेज गति से आगे बढ़ता हो और देश का बहुत बड़ा तबका उससे वंचित रह जाए तो जो अमीर और गरीब की खाई के कारण समस्‍याएं पैदा होती हैं, शहर और गांव में सुविधा के कारण जो खाई पैदा होती है, उससे भंयकर स्थिति Digital Divide के कारण पैदा हो सकती है।

इसलिए यह हमारा दायितव बनता है, हमारी जिम्‍मेवारी बनती है कि हम इस आधुनिक विज्ञान, जो कि मानव की आवश्‍यकताओं की पूर्ति का एक बहुत बड़ा catalyst agent बना हुआ है, उससे गरीब से गरीब भी वंचित नहीं रहना चाहिए। यह सुविधा जब तक हम गांव, गरीब, किसान तक नहीं पहुंचाएंगे तो यह विकास की जो बातें हैं, न वो उसका लाभ उठा पाएगा, न हम उसको सेवा दे पाएंगे। इसलिए इस चुनौती को हमने स्‍वीकार किया है कि आने वाले वर्षों में, दूर-सुदूर गांव में भी गरीब से गरीब व्‍यक्ति को भी इस platform को उपलब्‍ध कराना चाहिए, जिस platform से वो अपनी आवश्‍यकताओं की पूर्ति का माध्‍यम..आवश्‍यकता के अनुसार उपयोग करता रहे। दुनिया जिस प्रकार से बदल रही है, आपने देखा होगा आपको घर में.. मान लीजिए कभी तय करें कि चलो भई किसी restaurant में आज अच्‍छा खाने जाना है, परिवार के चार लोग बैठकर के चर्चा करें कि कहां जाएंगे और आपका 15-16 साल का बच्‍चा है, वो सुनता है, तो वो क्‍या करता है.. तुरंत वो Google गुरू के पास जाता है। Google गुरू से पूछता है कि नजदीक में अच्‍छे से अच्‍छा restaurant कौन सा है, अच्‍छे से अच्‍छा menu कौन सा है? और वो table पर वहां बैठे बैठे बुक करा देता है। यह इतना बड़ा बदलाव है, इस बदलाव को समझते हुए हमने भी अपनी व्‍यवस्‍थाओं को विकसित करना चाहिए। minimum government maximum governance, इस सपने को साकार करने में technology बहुत बड़ा रोल प्‍ले करती है। e-governance, सामान्‍य मानव की.. जो शासकीय सेवाओं में उसका हक है, उसको प्राप्‍त करने के लिए उत्‍तम से उत्‍तम मार्ग है। e-governance बहुत ही तेजी से m-governanceमें बदलने वाला है। ‘m’ does not mean Modi Governance, it is mobile governance. सारा कारोबार, सारी आवश्‍यकतांए, सारी व्‍यवस्‍थाएं मोबाइल फोन के ईद-गिर्द.. पूरी सरकार आपके मोबाइल फोन में मौजूद होने वाली है, वो दिन दूर नहीं है।

लेकिन इसके लिए हमें अपने आप को सजग करना होगा, व्‍यवस्‍थाएं विकसित करनी होगी। e-governance easy governance, is economical governance.. आर्थिक रूप से अनुकुल यह governance.. और उसको हम जितना बल दे सकें, हमें उसको बल देना है। उसी प्रकार से हमारे सामने समस्‍या रहती है, सरकार में, एक ही काम के लिए इतनी multiple activity करनी पड़ती है, इतना समय बर्बाद होता है। आधुनिक विज्ञान के माध्‍यम से conversion इतना सरल होता है.. और जैसा अभी आपको presentation में बताया कि आज सरकार में 10 जगह पर 10 काम हैं तो सारे certificate दस जगह पर देने पड़ते हैं। अब वो सारी मुसीबत चली जाएगी। जब व्‍यवस्‍थाएं खड़ी हो जाएंगी तो आपके एक Digital number से उसको सारी चीजें उपलब्‍ध हो जाएंगी और कारोबार आगे चलता चला जाएगा। आने वाले दिनों में.. आज हम चर्चा करते हैं कि बच्‍चों को इतना बोझ उठाकर के स्‍कूल जाना पड़ता है। उनके बक्‍से में उनके वजन से ज्‍यादा किताबों का वजन होता है। इन बालकों की समस्‍या का समाधान भी Digital India में है। सारा syllabus एक छोटे से equipment में वो अपने साथ लेकर के घूम सकता है। इसलिए कुछ लोग, ऐसी जब बात होती है तो उनको लगता है कि यह तो बड़ा elite class के लिए काम है, बड़े लोगों के लिए काम है.. हकीकत नहीं है।

जब satellite छोड़े जाते थे, आज से कुछ वर्षों पहले, तो कुछ लोग डिबेट करते थे कि भारत जैसा गरीब देश! यह satellite किस के लिए छोड़े जा रहे हैं! क्‍या उपयोग है! लेकिन आज वही satellite, weather forecast अगर सही ढंग से करता है तो सीधा-सीधा फायदा गरीब किसान को होता है। जब खर्चा करते हैं तो आलोचना होती है लेकिन वही बाद में मानव की आवश्‍यकताओं की पूर्ति करता है। यह सारी योजनाएं जो आपने देखीं.. अब देखिए आज, तो बैंक में जाना वगैरह सब है लेकिन वो दिन अब दूर नहीं है कि बैंक पेपर लेस होने वाला है, बैंक premises less होने वाला है। पूरा बैंकिंग कारोबार आपके मोबाइल फोन से चलने वाला है।

यह जो बदलाव आ रहा है, इस बदलाव के लिए हमें अपने आप को सजग करना चाहिए कि नहीं करना चाहिए। अगर हम देखें तो हम 19वीं शताब्‍दी से.. तब से इन कामों को तेज गति से आगे बढ़ाने की आवश्‍यकता थी। जब दुनिया ने Industrial revolution देखा, हम पिछड़ गए, क्‍यों? क्‍योंकि हम गुलाम थे। औद्योगिक क्रांति का हमें लाभ नहीं मिला। लेकिन आज जब IT revolution आया, हम आजाद हैं, हम youthful nation हैं और हमारे पास talent है। जहां तक IT की बात होगी, दुनिया हिंदुस्‍तान का लोहा मानती है। हमें यह मौका गंवाना नहीं है। गुलामी के कालखंड में हमने जो मौका गंवाया, यह मौका हमें IT revolution में गंवाना नहीं है। इसके सामने कुछ और चीजों पर भी बल देने की आवश्‍यकता है। Petroleum Import की हमारी मजबूरी है, ऊर्जा की आवश्‍कयता है, जरूरत पड़ती है, हमारे पास source कम है, लाना पड़ता है। लेकिन यह बात गले नहीं उतरती है कि हिंदुस्‍तान का second highest import electronic goods हैं। क्‍या यह देश, जहां पर इतने IT Professionals हो, जहां इतनी बड़ी मात्रा में उद्योगकार हों.. और कोई इतनी बड़ी technology भी नहीं है। क्‍या हम हमारे देश में electronic goods इतनी बड़ी मात्रा में न बना पाएं कि जो qualitatively globally competitive हों, और भारत का बना हुआ हो ताकि भारत को कभी बाहर से import न करना पड़े।

Digital India के माध्‍यम से हम electronic good को हिंदुस्‍तान में manufacture करने की दिशा में आगे बढ़ सकते हैं। हम देश के उद्योग जगत को निमंत्रित करना चाहते हैं। मैं नौजवानों को भी, start-up के लिए जो मदद चाहिए, सरकार देने के लिए तैयार है। और आज दुनिया में start-up की दिशा में हिंदुस्‍तान के नौजवानों की संख्‍या बहुत बड़ी मात्रा में है। आने वाले दिनों में शायद अमेरिका के बाद हम नंबर दो पर आ जाएंगे, start-up के लिए। लेकिन इसे और बढ़ाना है। मैं देश के नौजवानों को भी चुनौती देता हूं, अगर IT Professional हमारे हैं, दुनिया के IT कंपनियों में ढेर सारी मात्रा में भारतीय मूल के लोग नजर आते हैं, लेकिन क्‍या कारण है कि Google का innovation हमारे यहां नहीं होता है। क्‍या कारण है कि innovation बाहर होते हैं। Digital India के माध्‍यम से हम देश के नौजवानों कोinnovations के लिए आह्वान कर रहे हैं, कि आप आइए, इस चुनौती को स्‍वीकार कीजिए।

भारत जैसे देश को सबसे पहली आवश्‍यकता है.. जैसे Make in India का महत्‍व है, वैसे ही Design in India भी उतना ही महत्‍वपूर्ण है। हमारे देश के नागरिकों की रूचि, प्रकृति, प्रवृति के अनुसार हमारा प्रोडक्‍ट तैयार हो। वो जिस भाषा में समझता है, उस भाषा में प्रोडक्‍ट तैयार है। जिस age group को address करना है, उसकी आवश्‍यकता है के अनुसार प्रोडक्‍ट तैयार हो। सवा सौ करोड़ देशवासियों का बाजार है। हमारे देश के नौजवान अपने talent का उपयोग करते हुए, innovations को ध्‍यान में रखते हुए Design in India.. इस concept को पकड़ते हुए Digital India के अंदर नई ताकत, नए प्राण भर सकते हैं.. और उसको बल देने के लिए मैं देश के नौजवानों का आह्वान करता हूं। विश्‍व की ओर नजर करें, मैं मानता हूं कि भारत को एक बहुत बड़ी जिम्‍मेवारी अदा करने का समय आ गया है। हम देख सकते हैं कि दुनिया में रक्‍तविहीन युद्ध.. और मैं बहुत जिम्‍मेवारी के साथ बोल रहा हूं, रक्‍तविहीन युद्ध के बादल मंडरा रहे हैं। इस रक्‍तविहीन युद्ध के जब बादल मंडरा रहे हैं तो ऐसे में सुख-चैन की जिंदगी जी सके, क्‍या भारत इसका नेतृत्‍व कर सकता है कि नहीं कर सकता है?विश्‍व को सुख-चैन की जिंदगी जीने के लिए रक्‍तहीन युद्ध से सुरक्षा देने के लिए क्‍या भारत का talent काम आ सकता है कि नहीं आ सकता है? मैं जो रक्‍तहीन युद्ध की बात करता हूं, वो मु्द्दा है – cyber security का, उस पर हम बल देना चाहते हैं। और आज जब हम इस Digital India को launch कर रहे हैं तब उनको सपनों को साकार करने का हमारा प्रयास है तब मैं जरूर कहना चाहूंगा...

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where:

High-speed Digital Highways unite the Nation

एक जमाना था Highways के लिए मांग होती थीअब अकेले Highways से चलने वाला नहीं है। Highways भी चाहिए और information Highways भी चाहिए

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: 1.2 billion Connected Indians drive Innovation

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Knowledge is strength – and empowers the People

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Access to Information knows no barriers

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Government is Open - and Governance Transparent...और मैं जब कह रहा हूं भ्रष्‍टाचार के खिलाफ लड़ाई लड़ने में technology बहुत बड़ी मदद कर सकती है। सारे लीकेजेस को रोका जा सकता है। हमने जो अभी कोयले का auction किया सारा Digital platform का उपयोग किया था। अनेक खादानों का auction हुआ, लाखों करोड़ों का काम हुआ, लेकिन यह सरकार पर एक भी इल्‍जाम नहीं लगा। क्‍यों, क्‍योंकि हमने इस Digital platform का उपयोग किया, सम्‍पूर्ण रूप से transparency पर हमने बल दिया। और इसलिए भ्रष्‍टाचार को रोकने के लिए भी information and communication technology एक बहुत बड़ा instrument के रूप में उपयोग किया जा सकता है।

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Technology ensures the Citizen-Government Interface is Incorruptible

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Government Services are easily and efficiently available to citizens on Mobile devices

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Government proactively engages with the people through Social Media

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Quality Education reaches the most inaccessible corners driven by Digital Learning

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Quality Healthcare percolates right up to the remotest regions powered by e-Healthcare

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Farmers are empowered with Real-time Information to be connected with Global Markets

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Mobile enabled Emergency Services ensure Personal Security

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Cyber Security becomes an integral part of our National Security

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: Mobile and e-Banking ensures Financial Inclusion

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: e-Commerce drives Entrepreneurship

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: the World looks to India for the next Big Idea

I dream of a DIGITAL INDIA where: the Netizen is an Empowered Citizen

Thank you.

‘डिजिटल इंडिया’ पर राज्‍यों के सूचना प्रौद्योगिकी मंत्रियों का सम्‍मेलन

केन्‍द्रीय संचार, सूचना प्रौद्योगिकी और विधि व न्‍याय मंत्री श्री रवि शंकर प्रसाद ने 26 अगस्‍त, 2014 को राज्‍यों/केन्‍द्र शासित प्रदेशों के सूचना प्रौद्योगिकी (आईटी) मंत्रियों और आईटी सचिवों के सम्‍मेलन की अध्‍यक्षता की। इसमें ‘डिजिटल इंडिया’ कार्यक्रम पर चर्चा की गई। दस राज्‍यों जैसे आंध्र प्रदेश, बिहार, गोवा, गुजरात, जम्‍मू-कश्‍मीर, मध्‍य प्रदेश, मेघालय, ओडिशा, तेलंगाना और उत्‍तर प्रदेश के आईटी मंत्रियों ने इस सम्‍मेलन में शिरकत की। आईटी सचिवों और 33 राज्‍यों/केन्‍द्र शासित प्रदेशों के आईटी विभाग के वरिष्‍ठ अधिकारियों ने भी इस सम्‍मेलन में भाग लिया।

‘डिजिटल इंडिया’ भारत सरकार की एक नई पहल है जिसका उद्देश्‍य भारत को डिजिटल लिहाज से सशक्‍त समाज और ज्ञान अर्थव्‍यवस्‍था में तब्‍दील करना है। इसके तहत जिस लक्ष्‍य को पाने पर ध्‍यान केन्‍द्रित किया जा रहा है, वह है भारतीय प्रतिभा (आईटी) + सूचना प्रौद्योगिकी (आईटी) = कल का भारत (आईटी)।

‘डिजिटल इंडिया’ एक व्‍यापक कार्यक्रम है जो अनेक सरकारी मंत्रालयों और विभागों को कवर करता है। यह तरह-तरह के आइडिया और विचारों को एकल एवं व्‍यापक विज़न में समाहित करता है, ताकि इनमें से हर विचार एक बड़े लक्ष्‍य का हिस्‍सा नज़र आए। डिजिटल इंडिया कार्यक्रम का समन्‍वय डीईआईटीवाई द्वारा किया जाना है। वहीं, इस पर अमल समूची सरकार द्वारा किया जाना है।

Building India - Make in India - Expand Public Sector



Government of India has budgeted Rs. 36,000 crores as dividend receipts from Public Sector. It will go towards reducing fiscal deficit.

http://indianexpress.com/article/business/business-others/finmin-asks-central-psus-to-pay-30-dividend-issue-bonus-shares/

Instead Government should investment Rs. 25,000 crores in new public sector units out of the dividend and start one PSU with Rs. 1000 crore equity in each state.

Government should not shy away from PSUs. Government involvement in economic activities is an age old practice in India. Chanakya wrote elaborately on King's economic activities in Artha Shastra.

Government will be able to know the likely malpractices that businessmen can resorts and also know the difficulties of businessmen by having its own PSUs. While we have moved away the old thinking of commanding heights of the economy being in the hands of PSUs, we still have to develop the competency to run our PSUs with adequate effectiveness and efficieny.

Rational public sector investment is needed.

If public sectors units cannot be planned and managed by Government to the extent they are required for a meaningful involvement in economic activity of the country, it is a failure of political and administrative wings of the Government.

Can Public Sectors Units be Closed?

Yes. When economic organizations are started there is a big risk of failure. If the failure materializes, the government is free to close the unit. Failure of business organizations is part of competitive business economy and government units also fail. Failure should not held against government. The specific errors committed can be identified and rectified in the future.

Failure of certain units should not mean Government has to run away from PSU investment. Every body needs to know that Tatas and Birlas have many failed businesses in the groups and many of them are closed. The arguments for reducing the size of PSU investment has won the day and served its useful purpose. Now the argument has to be in favour of Government reigniting growth  by finding investment opportunities and in manufacturing sector and investing in it to a minimum threshold level.


Rational public sector investment is needed.

Closure of failed PSUs ok. But start new PSUs.

Start one PSU in every state each year with investment of Rs. 1000 cr in each.

Housing - Modi Govt. Economic Policy and Programmes - BJP Election Manifesto



BJP Manifesto : Lok Sabha Elections 2014





Housing - No Longer a Mirage

We will roll out a massive Low cost Housing programme to ensure that by the time the nation completes 75 years of its Independence, every family will have a pucca house of its own. It will be an innovatively designed scheme that dovetails various existing programmes and also encourages the housing sector by appropriate policy interventions and credit availability including interest subventions, where necessary.


Our proposed programme will further ensure that these houses are equipped with the basic facilities of toilet, piped water supply, electricity and proper Access. To do this we will amongst others:
- Prioritize all our resources towards this goal.
- Leverage on land as a resource in urban areas and demand for unskilled labour in the rural areas.
- Innovatively structure the programme to converge and dovetail various existing programmes, while adding the missing links.
- Simultaneously encourage the overall housing sector, through appropriate policy interventions and credit availability and interest subvention schemes.

BJP Manifesto : Lok Sabha Elections 2014




Labour Force - The Pillar of Our Growth

BJP recognizes the fact that the labour is the key to the revival of the economy and so are the laws governing them. We believe in promoting a harmonious relationship between labour and the industry, with both playing an important contributory role in economic growth and development.
We will ensure that the interests of labour in the unorganized sector are protected.
For the organized labour, we propose to encourage industry owners and labour to embrace the concept of 'Industry Family'. This concept, in which industry owners and labours bond as a family, is guided by the principles of efficiency, skill development and upgradation, productivity, appropriate wages and perquisites, and security towards this end. We will:
- issue identity cards to the unorganized sector labourers, and arrangements will be made to provide them good quality health and education services. Also, their skills will be upgraded through appropriate training programs.
- extend access to modern financial services to labour - including considering the option of setting up a dedicated Workers Bank.
- bring together all stakeholders to review our Labour laws which are outdated, complicated and even contradictory.
- strengthen the Pension and Health Insurance safety nets for all kinds of labourers.

Services - Modi Govt. Economic Policy and Programmes - BJP Election Manifesto




BJP Manifesto : Lok Sabha Elections 2014

Services - Driven by Quality and Efficiency

Business and Trade
The modern era is an era of exchange. Over-regulation needs to be addressed to stop the harassment of the businessmen and traders. At the same time, we have to set up transparent systems, which ensure credibility of our goods and services. At the same time, the bottlenecks in transporting and exporting them have to be removed. Also, the flow of information about our tradable items has to be made available to the rest of the world.
- Focus on Zero defect products.
- Build world class Ports; connecting them with roads and rail to the hinterland so as to drive the maritime trade of the country.
- Air Cargo facilities will be enhanced throughout the country.
- An Export Promotion Mission will be established integrating all stakeholders.
- Current accounts deficit will be brought down aggressively by focusing on exports and reducing the dependency on imports. Value addition on our products will be the biggest task.
- We shall work with the State governments to usher in the GST in an appropriate timeframe. For implementing the same, a robust IT network system will be put in place.
- We will embark on the path of IPRs and Patents in a big way.
- Take all necessary steps to protect the interest of retailers, small traders and small vendors and equip them with the latest techniques and methods to modernize them and make them competitive.
- Commit to ensure that the retailers and SMEs don't have to spend time and money for seeking multiple licenses to start the business. There will a system in place to avoid harassment of small traders.
- Ensure easy availability of institutional credit.
- Review obsolete and multiple laws to reduce and simplify them.
- Remove ambiguity in rules to make way for prompt decisions without any scope for discretion.
- Telecom revolution has touched length and breadth of the country but there is significant scope and necessity to improve the quality of voice and data to fully leverage the potential.

Tourism - Untapped Potential

BJP recognizes the role tourism and hospitality can play as a foreign exchange earner and its ability to create millions of jobs every year. Tourism plays a key role in socio-economic progress through creation of jobs, enterprise, infrastructure development, and foreign exchange earnings.
BJP realizes that the tourism sector needs a clear plan for growth, and BJP commits to initiate a mission mode project to create 50 tourist circuits that are affordable and built around themes like: a.) Archaeological and Heritage, b.) Cultural and Spiritual, c.) Himalayan, d.) Desert, e.) Coastal, f.) Medical (Ayurveda and Modern Medicine), etc. This will lead to creation of infrastructure and employment around each tourist circuit and help in boosting revenue generation.
Specialized course in tourism will be started for capacity development. Safety and Security of tourists would be accorded due priority.

Industry - Modi Govt. Economic Policy and Programmes - BJP Election Manifesto

BJP Manifesto : Lok Sabha Elections 2014


Industry - Modern, Competitive and Caring

We should no longer remain a market for the global industry. Rather, we should become a Global Manufacturing Hub. We have to encourage our industry to innovate and collaborate internationally. We have to encourage industry to produce efficiently and cost-effectively.
Economic freedom implies that Government will not get in the way of the freedom of individuals to start and operate legitimate businesses. Increased economic freedom will break open the economic space to new entrants, especially in the form of small and medium-enterprises, creating jobs and prosperity. Particularly:
- We will ensure that a conducive, enabling environment is created making 'doing business' in
India easy.
- We will focus on cutting the red tape, simplifying the procedures and removing the bottle- necks.
- We will ensure logistics infrastructure, including stable power.
- Our attempt will be to move towards a single-window system of clearances both at the centre and also at the State level through a Hub-spoke model.
- We will put in place a mechanism that will ensure that the Central and state governments work in close coordination and synergy while giving clearances to mega projects.
- Decision-making on environment clearances will be made transparent as well as time-bound.
- We will set up World class Investment and Industrial regions as Global Hubs of Manufacturing.
- We will set up a task force to review and revive our MSME sector (Micro and Small Medium scale
Enterprises); enabling it with better access to formal credit and technology for modernization.
- Frame the environment laws in a manner that provides no scope for confusion and will lead to speedy clearance of proposals without delay.

Manufacturing

A strong manufacturing sector will not only bridge the demand-supply gap leading to price stabilization, but also create millions of jobs and increase incomes for the working class. Above all, it will increase the revenue for government and lead to import substitution to bring down the import bill. We will make India a hub for cost-competitive labour-intensive mass manufacturing. To give boost to manufacturing, BJP will:
- Accord high priority to the growth of manufacturing, so that we can create enough jobs in the country. This sector must grow fast to ensure employment and asset creation.
- Take steps for Interest rate rationalization and have a clear tax policy to remove uncertainty and create investor confidence.
- Take all steps; like removing red-tapism involved in approvals, to make it easy to do business, invest in logistics infrastructure, ensure power supply and undertake labour reforms, besides other steps to create a conducive environment for investors.
- Increase the public spending on R&D and Incentivize R&D investments by the industry to increase the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector.
- We will facilitate setting up of software and hardware manufacturing units.
- Encourage Indian companies to go global and we will support Indian companies in this endeavor.
We believe that Indian entrepreneurs have the capability to take on global markets.
- Set up trade facilitation to ensure easier customs clearances and visas for business travel.
- Initiate a Government - Industry Dialogue, a channel for regular interface with the industry.


MSMEs (Micro, small and medium enterprises)

BJP considers that the role of SME sector is crucial for the economic development of our country. The sector needs to be developed by providing international linkages for exports, availability of credit through a dedicated SME bank, supply chain efficiencies, adoption of IT, support in R&D and innovation, and a policy support for enhancing the mandate to purchase from SME for large scale projects. Overall goal is to enhance the competitiveness of the SME sector leading to a larger contribution to our economic growth and employment generation.

Cooperative Sector

Every effort will be made to encourage the cooperative sector. BJP commits to review the existing laws with regards to the cooperative sector, and will amend the multi-state cooperative act to remove lacunae and anomalies.
