    China makes much better goods for a comparitevly better price including freight, custom duty and charges.

    So yes before banning any Chinese goods Indian companies should offer an alternative.

    That is ground reality

    Indian firms in general should do something about it.

    But with tactical nuclear attacks like demonetisation, GST and overall ongoing tax terror nobody wants to risk running a factory.

    Look at Minimum Wage set in Delhi and other places. Almost double-triple of market wages and to operate in an industrial area you have to maintain registers and do ESI for employees basically hire 2 employees just to ensure compliance with countless govt. rules.

    Our garment industry has been royally fuc*ed by Bangladesh.

    Actual manufacturing has declined so much since Modi came. Every small-medium business house is abusing modi.

    Only the biggies are benefiting.

    India is becoming like the US now.

    And Patanjali is the worst example of crony capitalism.

    I am not against big business doing well but Modi has made it impossible for small business to survive.

    Until and unless India scraps Draconian Labor Laws nothing is going to change...........
    I mean who in his right state of mind set up plant or factories where labor union leaders blackmail owners that if he wants factory to be running he will have to pay to that union leader and the leader won't even come to work and draw salary for free.........

    Second the factory owners face blackmail from local politicians like Corporators, MLAs, MPs, for getting their job done or getting vital approvals on time, even some small politicians out of power for party funds and local goons for various festivals like AMBEDKAR JAYANTI from reservation Quota class. Then a few politicians will talk of reservation for job for Ambedkar chaaps quota people. Even CMs and Union govt people like Dnyanidhi Maran the then Telecom minister blackmailed and forced Maxis owner to sell his company to Aircel.........

    Now who would invest if all he earns would have to be distributed among these BASTARDS?.............

    The only way to encourage Make in India and to bring FDI and investment into manufacturing in India is creating Free Manufacturing Zones which have all facilities like 24 hrs power at cheaper rates no cross subsidy, ample water supply, no labor laws a complete freedom for hire-fire, easy access to loans, no politician or goons can even enter that zone a completely free area where even EXIM policies don't work, no restriction of capital flows. These zones should have dedicated ports, rail terminals for containers movements, high speed rail connectivity to move labor from residential zone to place of work and out. No taxation on imports and exports but GST on Indian market, Tax benefits for 5-10 years, a complete haven for industry............

    With these zones in place we should focus on Semi-conductors, electronics, consumer durable, Automobiles, Auto parts and ancillary, textiles, ready made garments, toys, household needs, etc...... This will not only create huge numbers of jobs but will also make India self reliant and earn huge amounts of forex and break back of DRAGON as India will compete for same markets and several countries having troublesome relations with china will move to India which will slow down Dragon's growth and since their whole economy is dependent on export will start crumbling. Also the demography of India is favorable as China is getting older whereas Indian population is quite young. These steps can really make India the next Big Economic Rise after China.

    You are wrong , we are adapted to informal practices so much so that formal straight pathway looks added burden .

    I hope government take steps to address that, without that it continue as public have to pay on both ways and left with nothing.

    Formal straight path makes it impossible to run a factory profitably in India in today's competitive world.

    Ask any small factory owner.

    Amount of labour dept headache is unbearable everyone has to resort to tricks which prevents long term growth

    so you mean it is as easy to start make in india as making a cup of tea , or writing a stupid propaganda post or article ?????? nehru started many good institutions ( which khangressies are very good at ) but later on their family did everything possible to ruin the institutions . and what do you expect modi to do ? tamasha like kejriwal and rahul khan , perform anti national activities like momita bano or support bihar ka lotera lalu parshad like nitish kumar , the list goes on , tell you something , modi is here to stay for another term and wait and see how the economy shoots up after one or two quarters of this fiscal , as far as investments are concerned , they always take time and will take time . anyways , everyone has right to stage a propaganda ( specially against the first patriotic prime minister of Bharat shri narendera damodar daas modi ji * ) , u2 can , bye for now .

    Right now Modi goverment is like DRDO and make in India is like LCA Tejas. Like Champion's trophy final.
    Nothing you suggest will happen unfortunately, Lot's of traders make money selling Chinese goods, and they bribe Goverment, officials... they fund the party. Importing Chinese goods makes the trader class very rich and worker class un-employed. If China earns 80 billion in trade deficit, all it has to do is spend 1 billion as bribe. Top leaders of our defence forces prefer to buy foreign hardware to get bribes and kick backs. Businessmen are like mallya, very selfish people. think trader class of Indian care for common Indian ?

    This situation in Doklam is a good situation. We should pressurize Government not to withdraw. Lets pray that situation escalates and something big happens. Shame will restrict India from importing Chinese goods. Traders opinions will not matter. Bad relation ship with China is good for Indian industry and bad traders.

    Let's pray that a small regional battle will occur between China and India.

    Labor laws is ONE of the problems.

    Have any of you try to start a business and CLOSE it? I have. Bankruptcy/Closure laws are ridiculous in India.

    He has made it easier for big business.

    And easier for big foreign companies who can engage consultants like KPMG.

    But small-medium business are under great pressure. GST although good in theory is messing up Indian true parallel economy

    What makes you think I do?

    Even if I do it's because India will become US type economy if parallel economy crashes.

    Only big business.

    Small business gets butchered
