MSMEs should scale up their capabilities

Mysuru, Jan 7 (UNI) Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises will have
to scale up their capabilities to design and manufacture parts,
sub-assemblies as well as complete products which requires a wide
variety of skills, said G Raj Narayan, founder and MD Radel Group
and Chief Mentor of Drone.
Speaking at a Plenary Session at the 103rd Indian Science
Congress on Aims to focus on the Make In India initiative with
particular reference to the Defence and Aerospace sector', he said
that MSMEs in India contribute more than 45 per cent of the
industrial output and hence constitute a large section of the
manufacturing chains of almost all products.
He said that 'Make in India' opens up far more opportunities of
raising their value proposition than being mere vendors to the large
DPSUs. Considering that less than 10 per cent of the engineers
churned out of Indian colleges are found to be employable in the
core engineering industries, imparting practical skills is the need
of the hour for MII to succeed. Institutions such as the Drona
School of Engineering Practice, which orients engineers to practical
hands-on exposure to high value engineering skills in an industrial
environment, are the way forward.
The ‘Make in India’ is a paradigm shift from the past two decades
of Indian obsession with IT and ITeS services during which
manufacturing industries were allowed to collapse. There appears to
be a new found realization of the benefits of manufacturing A&D
products in India for domestic consumption rather than import them.
However, ‘Make in India’ goes beyond just manufacturing, to design,
innovate, manufacture and support in India. Viewed holistically,
this has profound implications across a wide section of businesses.
It involves huge numbers of creative engineers, technicians,
professors, research scholars, sales, marketing and support staff,
etc. all of whom need to possess specialized skills, he added.
