The Secretaries to the Government Finance, Revenue, Commerce, Textiles and Industrial Policy & Promotion as well as the Member Secretary of the NMCC are the other Members of the Committee.

The following are the terms of reference of the Group:
a) to suggest policy measures and a continuing mechanism to ensure sustained growth of the Indian manufacturing industries for the next 10-15 years;

b) to suggest policy measures and immediate steps to reverse the recent deceleration in the growth of the manufacturing industries;

c) to suggest policy measures and immediate steps to boost exports of Indian manufactured goods in the face of appreciation of the rupee and high interest rates, particularly with respect to labour intensive sectors like textiles, leather and handicrafts;

d) to suggest policy measures to leverage FDI to modernize manufacturing in India and create a strong technological base.

The Group is required to submit its report and final recommendations within 3 months. The Group would be making interim recommendations which require early action.
