US China trade war - no gain for India? #MakeInIndia?

Out of 56 companies that relocated their production out of China in the past 1.5 years, only three went to India and two to Indonesia.

26 relocated to Vietnam, 11 went to Taiwan and 8 to Thailand.…
"On the surface, India and Indonesia both have the ideal demographics to be global manufacturing powerhouses to rival China which at the moment makes one-fifth of the world's goods. First of all, they have the second and fourth-largest populations..."…
".... Furthermore, India's labour cost is half that of China's.

So why are India and Indonesia not receiving their fair share of factories relocating from China?"…

(1/n) Why US arms suppliers are not ideal partners for Indi...yet!! @LockheedMartin @LMIndiaNews

Arms Deals are foremost about delivering trustworthy, sustainable security to customers - in peace+war.
US suppliers do this well - but for Pak, not India.…
@LockheedMartin @LMIndiaNews (2/n) US arms lobby's (LM) hardsell for supplying MLU/upgrades/new jets to Pak - from 2008 till 2016 - inspite of proliferation, OBL, etc. indicates a strong Pak bias, revealed here:

Must read for those wanting to know how US arms industry works.…
@LockheedMartin @LMIndiaNews (3/n) Refer previous.
This is a Congressional hearing which exposed Pak's proliferation record, repeated aggression against India, & fear that F16 tech would be shared with China, etc.
Not only did the sale go thru, but US adm was even ready to pay for it from US taxpayer money.

I went to the Bangalore General Post Office today to enquire about a parcel that's been stuck in transit since July. It's somewhere in there. One customs official was valiantly opening everything to determine the tax on all the $1 and $2 trinkets people order from AliExpress.
Each of those bags contains parcels from the landing ports of Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai. Anything that arrived in the past few weeks hasn't even been recorded as having arrived. They're months behind on the backlog. Here's a sample. Chennai to Bangalore took June to September.
Why is this happening? Back in 2015, a customs official showed me a memo. All personal imports above ₹2000 (i.e., you're not a registered importer) we're to be taxed at a flat rate of 40 something percent. The official explained that this was to encourage #MakeInIndia.

#FinanceMinister has today unleashed the best shot so far in #Modinomics!

This is a Yug-parivartan move. Endless dimensions on which #NewIndia will be rocketing up now! 1/n
The battle on Black-money waged by @narendramodi Ji will now find a long term leash! No one was born to be a thief. High taxes motivated people to be. That motivation is diluted big time today! An honest, compliant, economic powerhouse of a #NewIndia is now enabled. 2/n
Everyone getting amazed that this Govt. is ready to earn less and spend more is totally wrong. #Modinomics magic is not yet understood. Laffer Curve clearly stands proven over 100s of years. Convexity of Tax-collection to Tax-rate is well know. 3/n

India is cutting the corporate tax rate to 25.2% from 30%. This is to promote growth and investment.

India to allow local companies to pay income tax at 22% . The new effective rate on new manufacturing companies is 17.01%.

All part of the strategy to avoid the 5% growth trend
Indonesia is planning to cut taxes to 20% from 25% starting 2021. Both Indonesia and India are slashing tax rates to be more competitive. This is in response to entice investors to come to those countries & also to stay. @Trinhnomics stated that US tax reform'll push for this too
👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 #MakeinIndia #India

New domestic manufacturing companies incorporated after October 1, can pay income tax at a rate of 15%without any incentives.

Meaning, the effective tax rate for new manufacturing companies will be 17.01% inclusive of all surcharge and cess.

What now?

1. Reduce the GST to 16%. It will cost 1.8 lakh crores, which is roughly what the govt got from the RBI as a windfall. People spending the money has a much higher chance of driving the economy than the Centre spending it.
2. Cancel all the Centrally Sponsored Schemes. Give that money to the states, or even better to the local bodies. Public expenditure at lower levels of governance will give the economy higher velocity than the slow pace of Central expenditure.
3. India is urbanising, but the legislatures are full of candidates from rural areas. Make the Delimitation Commission permanent, and redraw constituency boundaries WITHIN states every 10 years to reflect migration to cities.

For achieving USD 5 Trillion Economy, masive investment is essential. We Indians have to learn from History. After the WW2 Japan Germany & USA had promoted investment IGNORING Source and resources of funds.
Criminalisation of commercial transactions & aspect of business have virtually killed the appetite for entreprenuership. Businessmen takes great risk by putting their life savings into their business with no guarntee that it will succeed or continue to remain successful
Govt Owned several PSU have failed and many are bleeding despite best control and having talented ppl in the management. Govt has parted with many and continue to suffer losses with rest of them. If Govt PSUs can fail then why can't Pvt businesses can fail ?

Today is #NationalHandloomDay. Handwoven textiles are the original #MakeInIndia product. The handloom sector employs the second largest no of people in India after agriculture, in weaving as well as in ancillary activities like dyeing, spinning, setting up the loom, starching etc
Every state in India has its own tradition of hand-woven textiles. The known history of Indian hand-woven textiles goes back to almost 5000 years, and many of the weaves are still continuing to be woven in an unbroken, living tradition. #NationalHandloomDay #HandloomTwitter
People from the Sindhu-Saraswati civilzation has mastered weaving weaving. A madder-dyed scrap of fabric found at Mohenjo-Dado proves that our people knew the art of growing cotton, spinning yarn, weaving cloth as well as dyeing yarn using natural colours. #NationalHandloomDay

My thoughts on the #saree. This is a rambling collection of thoughts. Please read the whole thread. Even though I always liked Sarees, I started wearing them regularly only when I turned 30
Before that, I gave myself many excuses, the saree was cumbersome, it took too long to wear, it was too much trouble to arrange for blouse, matching underskirt, the works. But as I started dealing it, realised how easy and comfy the garment was.
Today, I understand when younger women and girls tell me that they would like to wear a saree, but it takes too long. Yes, initially it does, but within a few months you will master the art of draping a saree in under seven minutes, and nothing looks more graceful on a woman.

#SupplyChains #India needs to work indipendently with #USA and #China to separate the supply chains headed in the two directions and try to shift as much of them as possible to India
3/n #SupplyChains This is the final opportunity for making India a manufacturing hub, & bring manufacture jobs to India. It would be tragic if we miss this opportunity. I suggest that the new Govt appoint a #MOS(Supply Chains)in @PMOIndia to attract Global supply chains to India.

For the first time,@chetan_bhagat seems to touch the right chord in his economic analysis that 6% unemployment rate is due to structural&functional constraints of some key benchmarks like lack of Agrculture devpt,manufacturing ecosystem&service skills.1…
The solution lies within the Country which requires deficit funding to reduce&empowering primary unit by restructuring credit line,populist measures like MSP which makes Agri market incompetent in Export market.Similar approach is needed for Manufacturing&Services.
Agri entrepreneurs&Social infrastructure needs to be promoted which means to revive small scale&cottage industries on modern market model as a well aligned ancillary or supplier of Agriculture as it was during Pre-Colonial era.These must be based on #SwadesiModel.1

1/ Most people have been watching in shock as the story of dreaded #AngelTax reared it's disgusting head. Freezing the accounts of startup @Travelkhana and @babygogo_in has resulted in an uproar across India's startup community, calling for #ShutdownIndia
2/ Though the Central Board of Direct Taxation (CBDT) has released a circular claiming that the officer in charge of this particular case did everything by the book. Founder of @Travelkhana, @pushpinder has disputed the story, claiming the officer rushed the case through.
3/ Regardless whether the case was rushed through or not, is almost irrelevant because in any logical, normal universe, the case shouldn't exist at all. Period!

Details of the Steps taken in the Decision Making Process leading to the award of 36 Rafale Fighter Aircrafts submitted by Centre to the Petitioners on SC order.
Details of the Offset clause included in the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) with regard to the induction of the Indian Offset Partner in the Rafale deal. Submitted by Centre.
Anil Ambani wrote earlier "Rafale fighter jets are not being manufactured by Reliance or Dassault Reliance Joint Venture. All 36 planes are to be 100% manufactured in France & exported from France to India." Same is reflected in docs. If so why is it being touted as #MakeinIndia?

The offset clause in #RafaleDeal is one of the best things to have happened for India's nascent Aviation industry. In the past all Aviation companies were in clutches of HAL and QA organisations.They neither had scalability or patience to burst laidback bureaucracy. @nsitharaman
Have seen many enterprising small entrepreneurs waiting for hrs to meet HAL engineers or Aviation DGQA officers which are 9-5 cushy welfare postings.HAL had more industrial canteens& cooperative societies than aircraft variants. HAL confined to few cities. Quality was casuality
India was nowhere in software scene despite CMC a GOI company was in computers in 70/80s. It needed an Infosys,Wipro,TCS, few others to stir software world. If CMC were encouraged at expense of pvt IT software domination would have been a dream. Now Indian IT is not golden goose

@arunjaitley 1/ Can Mr Jaitley, at least while he is still in government (Minister of Finance(?)) for next few months, bother to answer the questions, instead of raising 15 more to the Opposition?

We wish him plenty of time & success asking questions later.

@arunjaitley 2/ Mr Jaitley spends half of his blog talking of "Delay". Not that this justifies a hasty bad decision by the current government even if it was true, but Mr Jaitley is FACTUALLY incorrect in some places.
@arunjaitley 3/ Let us refresh the memory of Mr Jaitley with an easy to grasp timeline. The key point to see here is that in such a complex purchase, decisions/actions where pending with IAF itself & Vendors too at various times.

Heard an incredible story about bureaucracy/military procurement on recent flight back from India. In 1983, the Indian Air Force began to look for a replacement for its aging fleet of 1960s-era MiG-21 fighter jets. (1/n) #MakeInIndia
2/ The goal was for Hindustan Aeronautics to produce an indigenous fighter with first flight by 1990 and enter service by 1995.
3/ Here's how the timeline actually unfolded:
1983: Light Combat Aircraft program formed
1985: Finalized program requirements
1990: Finalized delta wing design
1993: Commenced proof of concept development and design
2001: First flight of 2 prototypes
