Starting a business can be apparently easy and simple but when you execute a business plan then you recognise how daunting it is to establish a manufacturing business. According to a report by IBEF, manufacturing has emerged as one of the high growth sectors in India. Narendra Modi launched the ‘Make in India’ program to place India on the world map as a manufacturing hub and give global recognition to the Indian economy. The manufacturing sector’s Gross Value Added (GVA) at current prices was estimated at $350.27 billion as per the first advance estimate of FY21. The IHS Markit India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) reached 55.4 in March 2021 from 57.5 in February 2021. The manufacturing GVA accounts for 19 per cent of the country's real gross value added.

While, the report by Ministry of  of Statistics and Programme Implementation stated Industrial production in India surged 134.4 per cent year-on-year in April of 2021, the biggest increase ever, beating market forecasts of a 120 per cent gain. A low base effect from last year is weighing on the data as production fell at a record 57.3 per cent in April 2020 when the majority of the establishments were not operating and many units had no production due to the coronavirus lockdown. Big rises this year were seen for manufacturing (197.1 per cent), mining (37.1 per cent) and electricity (38.5 per cent).
