The government is considering a proposal to give preference to domestic manufacturing in public procurement, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion Secretary Ramesh Abhishek said on Saturday.

"The government is considering a proposal to give preference to domestic manufacturing in public procurement. The Make in India Campaign has propelled significant changes in policies to strengthen the manufacturing sector," he said at the annual session of industry body Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

Abhishek said that the government is working on policies that include simplification of procedures and processes through ease of doing business, liberalising foreign direct investment, dismantling the Foreign Investment Promotion Board and reform in public procurement.

He futher noted that an investment facilitation agency is working on investments of over $70 billion during the year, which will synergise investment promotion events at the state level for better results.

Facilitating young and new entrepreneurs
Umang Mathur,Director - SPM Medicare (P) Ltd. Noida(UP) | Fri May 5 08:47:39 2017
I started manufacturing of sterile single use insulin syringes(medical devices) under Pradhan Mantri yojana scheme(make in India)about two years back. I always being missed to participate in Govt. procurement tenders because of three years ITR one of the conditions to participate in tendering. The medical devices are regularly being imported from other countries, which becomes costly and not readily available. I being the unemployed engineer and having full knowledge in manufacturing insulin syringes and set up a good modern plant in Noida(UP). I request that a clause to submit three years ITR while applying for a tender in Govt procurement of medical devices can be removed so that all young entrepreneurs like me be able to participate in tendering to fulfil the dream of our Hon'ble Prime Minister - Make in India programme
