National Capital Goods Policy

Machine Tools is among the sectors in the National Capital Goods Policy aimed at making the Indian capital goods sector globally competitive.

The policy integrates major capital goods sub-sectors like machine tools, textile machinery, earthmoving and mining machinery, heavy electrical equipment, plastic machinery, process plant equipment, dies, moulds and press tools, printing and packaging machinery and food processing machinery as priority sectors to be envisaged under 'Make in India' initiative.

A boost to this sector is envisaged through this National Capital Goods Policy by providing for an enabling ecosystem for capital goods growth and ensuring sustained incentive for domestic manufacturers to service domestic as well as export market demand. The policy envisages increasing production of capital goods from ~Rs. 230,000 Cr in 2014-15 to Rs. 750,000 Cr in 2025 and raising direct and indirect employment from the current 8.4 million to ~30 million. It envisages increasing exports from the current 27% to 40% of production while increasing share of domestic production in India's demand from 60% to 80%, thus making India a net exporter of capital goods. The policy also aims to facilitate improvement in technology depth across sub-sectors, increase skill availability, ensure mandatory standards and promote growth and capacitybuilding of MSMEs.
