Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

Teach them to Fish


We have all heard the old adage :

Do not give fish to a hungry beggar : teach him , how to fish


When it comes to applying this simple truth to Indian Economy , I believe , the highest Corporate Social Responsibility ( CSR ) , of India's large companies, is to teach the MSME SECTOR ,


"  HOW  TO  BECOME  MORE  EFFICIENT  ?  MORE  PRODUCTIVE  ?  MORE  COMPETITIVE  ? " ,

by imbibing the SYSTEMS  / PROCEDURES / PRACTICES etc , which helped them become large themselves .


Dear Presidents of  FICCI  /  ASSOCHAM  /  CII :

I had sent to you my following suggestion  TWO  YEARS  back . Now I send it once again , hoping that , this time you will take the initiative to debate its feasibility . 

Let me know if I can help in any way - including design of the portal


On 17 Nov 2014 , when I wrote to Shri Amitabh Kant ( - the then Secretary , DIPP ) , to build this feature as part of " Make In India " web site , not only he found time to read my email , but also replied within 2 days :

Dear Hemen,


This is a mobile first initiative. The site has to be kept extremely light in content. We will be happy to do it on DIPP.com. Too much content will make it too heavy.

Regards,

Amitabh Kant

My suggestion will help " TEACH " the MSME of our country , " How To Do / What To Do ( - the KNOW HOW ) "

And only , your Associations can implement this !

BENCH-MARKING  INDIA  INC


Launching of  MakeInIndia web site was a great initiative


It can be made greater if its scope gets expanded to enable millions of SME ( Small Medium Enterprises ) to quickly learn / absorb the best Manufacturing / Management practices of India's most successful companies


Over 20 / 30 / 40 years , these companies have developed / evolved , some of the best practices in different functional areas , such as :




* Project Planning / Execution

* Financing / Fund Raising

* Long Term Strategy

* Cost Accounting

* Capital Budgeting

* Dealership Network

* Supply Management

* Subcontracting / Outsourcing

* Vendor Development

* Statistical Quality Control

* Tendering

* Human Resource Development

* Maintenance Management

* Logistics Planning

* Salary / Wages Structuring......etc etc



In each of these Functional Areas , these Companies have created  :


*   Standard Office Procedures

*   Approved Shop Practices

*   Operation Manuals

*   Forms ( Online / Offline )

*   Documentation

*   Software Tools

*   Brochures / Pamphlets

*   Agreements / Contracts

*   Legal Undertakings / Notices

*   Board Resolutions

*   PERT Charts

*   Process Monitoring Graphs......etc


And which are these " Successful " Companies ?


* L&T  /  Reliance / Birla Group / Adani Group / Infosys / Wipro / and hundreds of others



Can they be persuaded to share these data by uploading on
MakeInIndia web site ? - for 25 million SME to download / modify and implement in their own companies ?



I am sure if our PM , Shri Narendrabhai Modi , makes such a request to
ASSOCHAM / FICCI / CII and other similar organizations , these companies would gladly come forward to share with the rest of the Indian Corporate , the KNOWLEDGE / WISDOM  that lies captured in the above mentioned documents / manuals


It is high time , we think " Out Of Box "


It is time to convert
Private Intellectual Property ( PIP ) , into National Intellectual Property ( NIP )


I am not suggesting that any Company should reveal any of its " Trade Secrets / Patents "


But if MakeInIndia has to become a resounding success , successful companies must undertake to mentor 25 million SME
