In an industry which is witnessing a rapid growth, there is a growing sense that the Make in India initiative is a scam.
According to a report in the Times of India, the Make In India programme has created confusion in the minds of the Indian public, and many parents are reluctant to invest in children’s education.
The Times of the India says that the program’s promoters have created a misleading impression that the government is creating an Indian version of the Make-In-India programme, which is being marketed by companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter.
It also claims that the schemes aim at bringing in foreign labour and is in breach of the Constitution.
The report also claims the Make It in India scheme is a huge fraud.
“In reality, the scheme is only intended to create employment for foreign workers.
It is not meant to provide children with education, and it is not a government-run programme,” said Prakash K, an economist at the University of Mumbai, who has researched the Make it in India campaign.
Kumar Varma, a former senior economist at Tata Consultancy Services, told the Times that the programme is not really a scam at all.
“The whole point of Make In In India is to bring in foreign workers,” he said.
“It is not to bring back the manufacturing sector.
It does not have to do with manufacturing or the foreign investment.
The only thing is to increase the number of jobs and to create jobs in the manufacturing and service sector.”
While the MakeInIndia campaign is clearly aimed at bringing foreign workers in, some parents are not happy about it.
The paper says that about 70% of the children who enrolled for the MakeinIndia programme were from other countries.
“Parents who enroll their children in MakeInInIndia are concerned that they will be able to access the same jobs as the foreign workers who are working in India,” the report claims.
While the number who are willing to invest into the MakeItInIndia scheme has increased significantly in recent months, the parents of students from other parts of the world are now more likely to enroll their child.
“Some parents, who have opted to enrol their children into MakeIt in India, are concerned about the fact that their child might not be able access the skills they require, especially if they do not know the languages or the customs of the country in which they are residing,” the Times report claims, adding that the scheme has also resulted in a spike in enrolments from poorer families.
While some parents who enroll the children in the Makeit in India programme are concerned they might not have access to the skills required, some are also worried about the increased foreign work the scheme will bring.
“We have enrolled children in schools, and some of them are working for multinational companies like Facebook and Google.
Some of them even come from outside the country and they will now be able work in India.
This is not something we would have been prepared for,” a mother of a child enrolled in MakeItinIndia told the paper.”
But even though we have opted for it, we still feel a little bit nervous about what will happen to our children,” she said.
The MakeIt In India initiative has come under scrutiny by the National Green Tribunal (NGT), which is probing allegations of illegal practices.
According, the NGT is looking into whether the scheme, which has raised the ire of several governments, is in violation of the Right to Education Act.
