Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Tuesday compared the industry to Lord Hanuman Ji and asked why they are finally waking up to entry and investment in manufacturing and what is stopping them.
The Finance Minister said that foreign investors keep expressing confidence in India, while there seems to be some doubt about investment in domestic investors.
He said that the government is willing to work closely with the industry and is also ready to take policy steps. It is clear that if the Finance Minister talks like this from a public forum, it must have been a deep concern. So the simple answer is that if companies do not invest in the manufacturing sector, then already the crisis of jobs will deepen, as well as the sword of inflation will be hanging, it will have a direct impact on the wheel of the economy.
The aim in the economy of 5 lakh million dollars
In the year 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi set a target of making India one man $ 50000 by 2024 by 25 and the manufacturing sector is going to play an important role in achieving one goal. Therefore, a target has been set to increase its share in GDP, which is targeted to reach 25 weeks. And the manufacturing sector has a share of 15 to 17 per cent of the GDP. from here the concern of the Finance Minister is also attached. Because if companies do not invest in the manufacturing sector, then one economy will not be able to gain momentum.
According to the data of the Center for Monitoring Indian Economy Pvt Ltd, the capital expenditure of companies on new projects in the quarter of June 2022 has been 4.30 lakh crores. Which has decreased by about 50 per cent as compared to the quarter in March 2022, during which was 8.18 lakh crores. Such a huge fall is certainly a matter of concern for the government, especially when the global supply chain has been affected due to the use Ukraine war and its effect is directly visible in inflation.
