The Make in India Policy aims to facilitate investment, foster innovation, enhance skill development and build an Eco-system for manufacturing infrastructure in the country. Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises has been implementing a number of programmes and schemes in the areas of finance, technology, infrastructure, marketing and skill development to facilitate aims of the Make in India Policy. The Ministry is proposing to rise to the challenge through action plans directed at enhancement of the provision of collateral free credit through creation of state verticals for extending guarantees to the entrepreneurs of particular state with financial support from state governments, creation of similar verticals for women entrepreneurs and youth among SC/ST and NE Regions. Augmentation of 18 existing Technology Centres (TCs) is to be supported by cluster network Managers and a National Portal. Efforts are on to bridge the gap between Research Institutions and Industries through signing of MOUs with IISc and CSIR. Defence offset policy is being leveraged for creating ecosystem of defence manufacturing by MSMEs. A comprehensive skill mapping is also proposed as a first step towards alleviating the existing skill deficit. All these initiatives would help the MSME units including the units owned by SCs/STs.
