To give a boost to the ‘Make in India’ campaign, the Central Government has either cancelled or revised tenders worth Rs 13,000 crore.
The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) has now inserted a clause in all the tenders which will give an impetus to ‘Made in India’ goods.
The Government has already issued an order recently which asks to promote manufacturing and production of goods and services in India and enhance income and employment in the country.
As a result, a tender worth Rs 8,000 crores was withdrawn and re issued. The project was related with setting up of a urea and ammonia plant for gasification.
Another tender worth Rs 5,000 crore regarding the procurement of train set coaches was cancelled as it had restrictive conditions against domestic manufacturers and favoured foreign players.
The department of defence production will be calling for domestic players for production of atleast 90 items.
