Under “Make In India” initiative, the Indian government has announced various steps to improve the ease of doing business and attract foreign direct investment into the country.
‘Make in India’ aims at increasing the GDP and tax revenues in the country by producing products that meet high quality standards, and minimising the impact on the environment. Fostering innovation, protecting intellectual property, and enhancing skill development are the other aims of the programme according to the ‘Make in India’ website.
To keep things intact, the Government has now decided to closely monitor the promises made under ‘Make in India’ programme and State Level Business Reform Action Plan, and also rank all the states based on the performance.
It has also created two dashboards, namely ‘Make in India Action Plan’ and ‘State Level Business Reform Action Plan’ which would be accessible to all. The dashboard will provide information on state performance, score and other reform areas. These dashboards will track 21 Ministries, covering 22 sectors, and will be constantly updated by the concerned Ministries and bureaucrats.
A press statement by DIPP said, “The Make in India Dashboard will allow Ministries covered under the Action Plan to update progress made by them on short-term and medium-term targets, facilitate timely delivery of identified action points, and facilitate monitoring & identification of delays in implementation, if any.”
Besides, it will also allow PMO, Cabinet Secretariat and DIPP to monitor progress and suggest corrective course on the progress indicated.
Every user of DIPP’s website needs to create an account to access the dashboard. However, it seems that currently there is no provision to generate one.
The second dashboard for tracking Business Reform Action Plan, is live. However, the data is yet to be updated. As per the DIPP’s press statement, the dashboard shall be updated only after the data is verified by them.
As per this website, the dashboard would serve three main purposes:
- Real time ranking and tracking of the States and UTs, based on the implementation of the recommendation.
- Details of the good practices to learn and replicate from.
- Provide information on current policies and practices across the States and UTs.
