Objective of Industrial Policy

Objective of Industrial Policy


The main features of the objectives of the Industrial Policy of the Government of India may be classified as follows:

  • to maintain a sustained growth in productivity;
  • to achieve optimal utilization of human resources;
  • to enhance gainful employment;
  • to attain international competitiveness, and
  • transform India into a major partner and player in the global arena
The Industrial Policy concentrates on deregulating Indian Industry, allowing the industry freedom and flexibility in responding to market forces and providing a policy regime that facilitates and fosters the growth of Indian Industry.

The Industrial policy of India was announced by the Central Government in the Resolution No. 1(3)-44(13)48 on 6th April, 1948 and was later approved by the Central Legislature. It aimed to centrally control the development and regulation of a number of important industries which affected the economy of the whole country and the development of such industries needed to be governed by the economic factors of all-India import. Thus, the Industries (Development and Regulation) Bill was introduced to achieve this objective. After being passed by both the Houses of Parliament, the Bill received the assent of the President on 31st October, 1951. Finally, it came into force on 8th May, 1952 as The Industries (Development and Regulation) Act, 1951 (65 of 1951). This Act seeks to secure the planning of future development on healthy and balanced lines by the licensing of all new undertakings by the Central Government. The Act confers power on the Government to make rules for the registration of existing undertakings to regulate the production and development of industries in the First Schedule and consultation with Provincial Governments on these matters. The Act also provides for the constitution of a Central Advisory Council. Prior consultation with the Central Advisory Council would be obligatory before the Central Government takes measures regarding revocation of a license or taking over the control and management of any industrial concern.
