The Government of India has taken several initiatives to promote a healthy environment for the growth of manufacturing sector in the country. The government has an ambitious plan to locally manufacture as many as 181 products India currently imports at a cost of at least US$ 18.1 billion. To give its ambitious Make In India programme the much needed atmosphere to succeed, the government is expected to come up with a separate set of labour laws governing the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) sector which forms the backbone of the manufacturing sector.
