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?"

With regards,

NEED YOUR APPROVAL


Dear Amitabh ,


Welcome Home !


And hearty congratulations on an immensely successful tour of Ireland / USA


In B2B online database ( Who is investing in India ? ) , today we have :

>    Total News Stories........................1456     (  adding 50 + every day  )

>    Stories of US Companies.............    138     (  leading the list of 64 Countries  )

>    Story from Ireland.........................     1     (  ought to climb soon  )


Yesterday , I finally managed to speak with Ankit re-launch of revamped MakeinIndia web site

He said , he wants to get your final approval of the content before launch

I have requested him to display those hyperlinks on the home page , prominently and not hidden behind the tab , " Useful Links "

He said , this can be done but he needs your approval for this

I request you to give this approval


With regards ,

hemen / 0 - 98,67,55,08,08


PS :

" Who is investing in India ? " is the most powerful and conclusive proof that MakeinIndia initiative is resulting in tangible / specific / ground-level investments

If they don't get to see this link straight away , millions of Khuranas ( remember , Facebook Town hall meeting question ? ) , will keep wondering :

"  Is MakeinIndia , simply a hype ? Is it really producing results ? "

When we have a simple option to show this link prominently on home page , we must not take a chance that visitors will take the trouble to search under tab " Useful Links "

TREADING THE BEATEN PATH ?


TREADING   THE   BEATEN   PATH   ?

You may also call it , "  Path of the Calf " , a beautiful old poem  by ,
Sam Walter Foss ( 1858 - 1911 )

The crooked path that a lonely calf cut through the dense jungle , 100 years ago
Men followed / horses followed / carts followed / vehicles followed
Till it became a Inter State highway !
But still crooked !
Sure , it does take you where you want to go - except it takes a long time !

I was reminded of this while reading a news report which said :

*  MUDRA bank has disbursed Rs 24,000 cr to 27 lakh jobless youth to start
    micro businesses . On an average , less than Rs 1 lakh per person

*  In 2015-16 , it plans to distribute loans to 1.25 crore jobless

*  Assuming same ave amount , that would mean Rs 1.25 crore*lakh

Now recall following :

*  Some 4.3 crore youth are registered with 900 + Employment Exchanges
    of India . Perhaps twice as many have not even bothered to register ,
    since it will take 300 years to clear the present backlog , at the rate at
    which these exchanges are able to find jobs ! So , a total of 13 crore
    jobless ?

*  Some 40 crore Indians are below the poverty line . Even if only ONE in
    FOUR , wants to start a micro business , that means 10 Crore persons in
    need of MUDRA loan ?

*  So , even if Rs 10 Cr*lakh could be mobilized ,  it may take 8 / 10 years
    to give loans to these 10 / 13 crore jobless !

Now it was only yesterday that , in a meeting with America's top CEOs in New York , Prime Minister Narendra promised to fast-track the decision-making process, acknowledging that ,

" the world is not going to wait for us ". 

I have a feeling that crores of jobless Indian youth are also unwilling to wait
for 10 years !


Instead , here is what NDA government need to do :

*  Enact " Start Up Act - 2015 " suggested earlier

*  Abolish Personal Income Tax for Start Ups registering on web site of
   Income Tax department ( must file ZERO TAX return for 10 years )

*  No questions asked re source for all investments made in Start Ups ,as
   long as this cash gets deposited in the bank account of that Start Up

This will ensure that , within ONE YEAR , 30 crore bank accounts opened under Jan Dhan Yojana , will each get credited with Rs 1 lakh !

Rs 30 Crore*Lakh of  BLACK MONEY , will suddenly become  WHITE  and PRODUCTIVE  !

Let us stop trudging along the " Path of the Calf " !

SILVER LINING ?


Dear  Amitabh ,


Dark  Cloud :

    Revamped web site of MakeinIndia is still awaiting launch


Silver Lining :

   Hence it is not too late to move the link ( Who is investing in India ? ) from under tab "  USEFUL  LINKS " ( as currently envisaged ) and

   show it SEPARATELY / PROMINENTLY / INDEPENDENTLY , on the new home page


Why  ?

   Yesterday , in the town hall meeting of Facebook , Mr Khurana asked Shri Modi ( not exact words ) :

   "  Has MakeinIndia brought in foreign investments ?  Is MakeinIndia , a success ? "

   Khurana's was not a " critique ". He was just echoing the thought going through the minds of millions ( within India and abroad )

 
How  ?

    When such " Doubting Thomases " visit MakeinIndia's new web site , that independent / prominent link ( Who is investing in India ? ) , will fly in their faces and

     invite them to click  ! They should NOT have to " discover " that link

 Buried along with many other links , under that tab , it may never be found !


I request you to agree to providing this SILVER LINING to dispel all doubts !

I am sure it is still not too late for Ankit to implement


with regards,
