India: Make in India: Suresh Prabhu asks states to opt for local products for public procurement

25 Oct 2018: Commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu has asked states to emulate Centre’s model of giving preference to products manufactured under the Make in India initiative for public procurement to provide impetus to local manufacturing.  Besides giving a “big boost to domestic manufacturing of goods and provision of supplies, it will also lead to growth in employment and income”, Prabhu wrote to all chief ministers earlier this week.
