Prof. Lord Kumar Bhattacharya, Chairman, Warwick Manufacturing Group, has said that 'Make in India' should ideally be 'Made by India', to foster the indigenous manufacturing and thereby facilitate economic growth. He stressed that India's future should be to lead global innovation and it should invest in global partnership of innovation for creation of outstanding products.

He was speaking at the CII Session on 'Make in India: The Next Wave'.

Prof. Bhattacharya praised the Government's 'Make in India' initiative and said that it has a huge momentum not only in India but abroad as well, according to a CII press release.

Reflecting on his journey as a part of the Warwick Manufacturing Group, Prof Lord Bhattacharya stressed that technology, training, skills and infrastructure had helped renew and restore Britain's manufacturing industry and Indian should learn from Britain's experience.

He compared the current positive developments in manufacturing sector in India with that in China in 1980s and felt that India's growth was looking self-sustaining at this stage. He, however, cautioned that India should not become complacent and underestimate China. Over the recent years China has adopted the culture of innovation and has moved away from the culture on imitation and India should learn from China too, he added.
