The de­part­ment of heavy In­dus­tries have ap­proved four chlo­roflu­o­ro­car­bons (CFCs) on in­dus­tries 4.0, in­formed Mr. Girish Shankar, Sec­re­tary (HI), De­part­ment of Heavy In­dus­tries, at the ASSOCHAM Man­u­fac­tur­ing Sum­mit, held on Au­gust 22, 2017."We are go­ing to con­nect these cen­ters into a hub and call it SAMARTH (Smart and Ad­vanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing and Rapid Trans­for­ma­tion Hubs) Udyog."

The gov­ern­ment is draft­ing new In­te­grated In­dus­trial Pol­icy to en­able this dream. The tar­get of 25% is one of the fac­tors re­quir­ing new in­dus­trial pol­icy. The big­gest is that a silent change is hap­pen­ing in the west to re­gain their doc­u­ment po­si­tion. It is based on knowl­edge of con­nect­ing en­tire value chain to en­able be­hav­ing as one. The con­nec­tions are be­ing pro­vided by in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies in the cy­ber phys­i­cal sys­tem. In­dia needs to be aware this change.

In our quest for gain­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing su­pe­ri­or­ity, we need to de­velop and sup­port ad­vanced, high value and in­no­va­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing. It all per­tains to pro­duc­ing tech­no­log­i­cally com­plex prod­ucts through the ap­pli­ca­tion of cut­ting-edge tech­ni­cal knowl­edge, which have strong po­ten­tial to bring sus­tain­able growth and high eco­nomic value.

We are wit­ness­ing the rise of pro­tec­tion­ism in al­most all parts of the world; na­tions want to pro­tect tech­nol­ogy, jobs by in­su­lat­ing them­selves from open glob­al­lylinked trade. Even in such an at­mos­phere, those who pro­vide the best qual­ity at the most com­pet­i­tive

price will be able to pen­e­trate pro­tec­tion­ist ten­den­cies and grow their mar­ket glob­ally.

This de­mand that in­dus­try push its pro­duc­tiv­ity by em­brac­ing lat­est tech­nol­ogy and lever­ages the use of new con­cepts such as in­dus­try 4.0. The­fourth in­dus­trial rev­o­lu­tion, in­dus­tries 4.0 de­mands the in­dus­try to be in­no­va­tive and change quickly to en­sure global com­pet­i­tive­ness.

These fac­to­ries of fu­ture will pro­vide first hand ex­po­sure to In­dian man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor. In­dus­try can ex­pe­ri­ence the pro­cesses. They can have them­selves trained in spe­cific skills and get in­dus­trial con­sul­tancy sup­port to kick start Smart pro­cesses in their own fac­to­ries.

The de­part­ment of science and tech­nol­ogy has man­dated tech­nolo gy in­for­ma­tion, fore­cast­ing & As­sess­ment coun­cil to draft a DPR for cre­at­ing 10 or 12 cen­tres of ex­cel­lence in in­dus­trial R & D ap­plied to in­dus­try 4.0 and re­lated tech­nolo­gies.

The min­istry of skill de­vel­op­ment and en­trepreneur­ship has also formed a Task Force to cre­ate skill eco-sys­tem for new and trans­formed trades re­quired for in­dus­try 4.0.

In our quest for gain­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing su­pe­ri­or­ity, we need to de­velop and sup­port ad­vanced, high value and in­no­va­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing.
