Invest India sets up cell to support ‘Make in India’


New Delhi, Sep 26  To give a fillip to the ‘Make in India’ campaign, Invest India has set up a dedicated Investor Facilitation Cell to act as a primary support for all queries and to provide hand-holding and liaisoning services to investors.

“The queries can now be addressed to and their responses accessed from the makeinindia.com website that was unveiled with the campaign by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Vigyan Bhawan Sep 25,” the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) said in a statement Friday.

Modi’s pet campaign aims to put India prominently on the global manufacturing map and, in turn, facilitate the inflow of new technology and capital, while creating millions of jobs.

Invest India is a not-for-profit joint venture between the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), ministry of commerce and industry, state governments, and FICCI.

Operationalised in early 2010, the company has been set up as the dedicated investment promotion agency (IPA) for attracting investments in the country in a structured, focused and comprehensive manner.

The Investor Facilitation Cell will provide all information and data analysis to investors across all sectors; follow up information or approvals from all departments or government agencies on behalf of investors and the investing community, and receive investors, providing them facilitation.

It will also interact with all states in a hub and spoke model and feed the investors with state policies relating to land, labour, capital and investment; maintaining a dynamic vibrant web-portal with all the policies and incentives of the state governments and fixing meetings and appointments of the investors with different departments and government agencies, it said.
