Policy for Assistance (Frame) for Indian Industries and those domiciled in India to make them Globally Knowledgeable and Competitive .
The Government would create consolidated Knowledge and Data Centers responsible for gathering data from across the world using all available sources and resources.
These would be subsidized by the government but part funded by industry groups and would be tasked to always know, and make available to industry groups or individual enterprises, in a 360-degree frame of knowledge, the following key industry drivers:
The technology that is available at any given point of time in a given activity space.
The technology being researched in various forums including universities, industry research organizations etc. across the world and would be tasked to dig out hidden research that may be happening anywhere in any area.
The market size for any product or industry group.
The market demographics for each activity segment.
Business to business connect opportunities available at any given point of time.
The demand-supply gaps where so ever these exist, whether in product space or that of services and jobs in various activity segments.
The socio-economic-political-geopolitical narrative of individual countries and allied national groups to identify available operating space for Indian industry groups.
New Plant and machinery that may hit the market for any given area of manufacture or activity.
Plant and machinery that may be lying idle in any country due to failure of an enterprise that may be available for buyout or may present investment opportunities for gaining a presence in such countries economy from within that fall within the Indian strategic and economic narrative at any given point of time.
The Data Dumps would use all available resources including various publications, subscription based sources, from all research groups or organizations as well as statistics and data released by all governments across the world etc. All these would be used as part of their primary sources for data and knowledge acquisition, which would be then put in consolidated dumps for analysis in various permutation-combinations as needed.
The government would create Analysts Groups to study all available data and give it usable practical shape for uptake of stakeholders.
These would be drawn from the across-sectors and would be tasked to keep all industry groups or enterprises in the loop of available information of emerging technology and demand-supply trends.
They would also home in on opportunities that may have been spotted for Indian industry to take advantage of.
They would analyze and broadcast consumer preference shifts etc.
Various industry groups such as CII, FICCI and numerous others would be pulled in to participate for the benefit of their members and integrated planning exercises alongside the government.
The government would create new integrated population-industrial belt corridors all along the huge Indian coastline.
These would be up to 50-kilometer-deep running and measured from the coast-inland and integrated townships would be developed as population-industry clusters or centers to rejuvenate our city life and socio-economic development.
These would be developed around various industry segments that are targeted for major export thrust, or where import inputs are critical.
A robust and large costal shipping base would be opened to private sector for development for the movement of goods and people along the entire coast line of India; an area that is almost virgin territory.
Such a move would give a huge boost to all sectors including manufacturing, ship building, tourism, transport, employment and reduce the burden on roads, while developing coastal India to reduce the stress on farm and agricultural land. If one were to only look at Australia, one would realize that almost the entire life of the nation is built around the coast and water.
These city builds would also focus on spots where tourism centers would thrive and develop these as tourist and leisure destinations and would be located either near places of historic interest and / or where water sports and fishing etc. can be packaged as an attraction for tourists.
All laws that cause impediments to industry other than those related to environment, pollution control would, in principle, be scrapped.
Pollution caused as a result of any industrial activity will be tackled as part of the industry’s license to operate along the following principle:
All industries would be required to build into their cost and investment structure the need to come up with as close to Zero pollution and manage their waste through third party waste management companies tied into their industry.
They would need to come up with closed loop scenarios wherein scrap, water pollution etc. would be managed on site itself through treatment or segregation for further processing narratives, and these costs, if causing burdens that impact on cost-competitiveness of given units, would be subsidized or tax incentivized by the government for a period of time that permits recovery of the investment and then reduce to zero.
It is clear that technologies are either already available or can be easily developed around waste management, which in itself can generate profitable down line industries in recovery and further conversion into saleable products. The government would give a huge push to this sector.
In recognition of the fact that all industrial activity set up and run on automation and Artificial intelligence eliminates human jobs while still deriving its “sales” or revenue and wealth from the public domain, the Government would set rules of engagement of all such enterprises and / or technologies for operating in India.
Given that under no circumstances can the wider public interest be compromised by private entities, no matter how large, they would need to become contributory entities to the Human Development Fund and safety Umbrella-Funds.
These funds would be used to re-educate or re-deploy the human capital and otherwise support the seeding of small and medium enterprises.
The treatment of fully Automated industries run through Artificial Intelligence, in recognition of the public impact they have on Jobs and Job creation, would be defined such that they become contributors to mitigate the human impact of their operations even while giving them full operational freedom to grow.
Monopolies or Cartels would be discouraging and would invite government intervention.
Such intervention would be rooted in the principle that no single individual or entity owned or controlled by a small group of individuals can grow to a size bigger than the State nor can such entity have impact on the wider public through and in whom, it derives it wealth and operational space.
Sectoral Policies would be worked out for each industry group or sector once The Rising India Party wins election within the proviso that representatives from each industry group would be called in to be part of such Policy deliberations.
