Make in India Campaign - FDI in Manufacturing increases

The manufacturing sector in India witnessed a sharp jump of 50 per cent in foreign direct investment (FDI) in the year 2014-15, thereby reflecting the traction received by the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.

The manufacturing sector continued to be the largest beneficiary and accounted for 38 per cent of the total FDI received and rose to $9.6 billion.

It is the first time in 3 years that FDI in manufacturing has witnessed an expansion. While it stood at $9.3 billion in 2011-12, it declined in the following two years to $6.5 billion and $6.3 billion in FY13 and FY14, respectively. However, as a result of the government’s push on manufacturing in India and ease of doing business initiative, the FDI in manufacturing has witnessed a boost.
