Mr. P.V.Ramdev, MD,
Everest Engineering Equipment Pvt. Ltd.
We welcome the much awaited decision of "Make in India" concept and its sincere implementation in next 10 years. This was supposed to be done in 1980's when China started this. Still, we can achieve this if the new government is able to turn down several hurdles one by one.

If we discuss about tower cranes and passenger hoist manufacturing, we are still following some other countries' design standards. We do not have manufacturing plants suitable for the foreign design standards and sizes. So we have to import the raw material like angle steel, square tube….etc. Therefore, we have to start developing from the raw materials or we have to standardize the design according to the Indian standards and available materials in India. Similarly, the tower crane mechanisms are still getting imported from China and other countries. Currently, India is a fabrication workshop with imported steel and mechanisms. To come out of it, we have to start developing our own design according to the Indian standard raw materials, own mechanism, own slew rings and own joystick controls. Even the multiple cam limit switches, crane duty multiple pole motors and forced cooling VFD motors are not available in India.

Our Bureau of Indian standards does not have an updated design standard for tower crane and passenger hoist with latest technology. We do not have a specific safety standard for design, testing and using of such equipment. This presents the need to start from the scratch.

Expectations of a manufacturer:
  1. Government has to identify and set up manufacturing zones near the cities with proper availability of electricity, water, roads and a welcome approach from the local bodies. To start manufacturing in India, we have to run behind several local bodies, state govt. offices and several central govt. offices. This lengthy procedure must be reduced.
  2. Availability of trained workforce should be increased to meet the current requirement. But a manufacturer has to take care of Employees PF, PT, WC policy, Welfare fund, etc. with a lot of split accounts and paper work. We expect a single window, single account and single paper to deal all payments related to an employee through latest software developed by government.
  3. A manufacturer has to pass through excise, local sales tax, central sales tax, LBT, octroi, income tax and TDS, etc. The whole taxes will come about 30% on the equipment cost. The complication on each tax is so high that each manufacturer has to spend lots of manpower and papers to manage these government taxes. If the government works seriously to reach single window single paper for all the above taxes through a newly developed software, then nobody can stop the pace of India. Over and above this, manufacturers have another 30-35% expenses for transportations, advertisement, sales, service, warranty parts, distributor commissions, etc. So we can image at what price the customer can get this equipment!
  4. The settlement of economical offences does not have any time frame in India. It can be lifelong and the accused will attain his life span without any recovery / punishment. Now the government has to change the law and specify the exact time frame for the settlement / punishment for economical offences like 6 month to 1 year maximum. Quick response and decisions are another requirement for the success of the "Make in India" initiative.
