Transforming India

With investments in new manufacturing processes and latest technologies, Tata companies are pushing the Make in India agenda vigorously

Tata Chemicals:
Innovation attention

By providing innovative solutions to tackle challenges in agriculture, industry and also the daily lives of Indians, Tata Chemicals has garnered a strong position in the nutrition and chemistry solutions domain. This is how we are engaging actively with the Make in India story - R Mukundan, managing director, Tata Chemicals


Titan Company:
Time to watch this space

The launch of the Make in India initiative has come at an opportune time for the country, especially because the global economy has been seeing tremendous volatility. Aimed at bringing India to the forefront of economic growth, we are confident that this crucial national effort, which is particularly focused on developing infrastructure, will help tackle this challenge — Bhaskar Bhat, managing director, Titan Company


Tata Elxsi: Design rules

We need to go beyond investing in skills development and manufacturing technology. We need to provide for capabilities in design, technology and engineering to facilitate a higher order of value addition. This will also ensure the design competiveness of domestic products that compete in the Indian and global markets. If not, we will be just a nation of makers, not creators — Nitin Pai, senior vice-president, marketing, Tata Elxsi


TAL Manufacturing Solutions:
Source code

Thanks to the Make in India programme, long-pending defence contracts are being signed, giving the much-needed impetus to manufacturing in the defence and aerospace sectors. With global competition, there is a higher emphasis on the quality of products and services. The manufacturing sector is being reignited and the true results of the campaign will be seen and felt over the next few years — Rajesh Khatri, executive director and chief executive, TAL Manufacturing Solutions


Tata Advanced Systems:
World stage beckons

We follow a two-fold approach. One, to work with the best global original equipment manufacturers as partners and feeders to their supply chains, by meeting world-class standards of delivery and quality. And two, to develop indigenous capabilities to meet the requirements of India’s defence forces. The Make in India initiative is aligned with our approach. We believe in the capabilities that we have built and are building further. We are creating a strong base for making in India, for India and for the world — Sukaran Singh, chief executive, Tata Advanced Systems


Tata Motors: Pathway pioneer

Leadership in the automotive industry in India with a 60 percent market share in commercial vehicles and a range of passenger cars; a global player, selling its India-made vehicles across Asia and in Africa, South America and other parts of the world; defence-related projects in partnership with India’s Ministry of Defence, government research bodies and other companies — is the context prompting Ravi Pisharody, executive director, commercial vehicles, Tata Motors, to say the company is a great example for the government’s Make in India programme
