Atmanirbhar Bharat

Atmanirbhar Bharat is not a new movement rather it is an advanced version of movements like the Fourth Five year Plan (1969-1974) and swadeshi movement.

  1. The fourth five-year plan was introduced by Indira Gandhi which stated two major objectives:

• Stable Growth of India
• Self Reliant India

  1. Swadeshi movement is also known as MAKE IN INDIA movement launched in the year 1905 by mahatma Gandhi which instructed to boycott British products and put into use the products made in India

And the current pandemic situation has made us again to get along with the previous plans to make our country self-sufficient. Hence our honorable prime minister Narendra Modi Ji has launched a mission well known as Atmanirbhar Bharat(self-reliant India). This mission has been interpreted by some people as a re-packaged version of the Make in India movement using new catchphrases such as ‘Vocal for Local’.

The purpose aim of this plan is two-fold. The primary measure such as liquidity infusion and immediate cash transfers for the poor which will work as a trauma shield for those in critical density.

The secondary measure to ensure long-term reforms in growth-critical sectors to make them globally competitive and attractive.

Together, this move may bring back the economic activity, affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and generate new opportunities for better growth in sectors like coal and mining, power, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), agriculture, aviation, and defense,etc. Still, many challenges are required to be directed to attain the vision of this master plan.

On May 12, 2020, our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, proclaimed a particular economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore (equivalent to 10% of India’s GDP) focusing to build the country self-sufficient against the tough race in the global supply chain and to help out in authorizing the migrants, poor and laborers who have been adversely affected by COVID pandemic. The Prime Minister’s address also emphasized that the MSME sector will act as the substructure for economic improvement. Intending to get back the MSME sector back on its feet, the Prime Minister proclaimed the MSME sector to be within the compass of the Atma-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan (ANBA).

This mission requires India to boycott Chinese merchandise (and promote AN Atmanirbhar India instead) and much tough within the short term for the country as India imports $75 billion prices of products once a year from China, to the extent that elements of Indian business.

Following the Galway depression skirmish on 15 June 2020

Indian troopers died, was serious concern creating the country self-directed, Chinese firms should not be given plans and projects like the Delhi-Meerut RRTS.

A large number of firms with weak balance sheets in aviation, hospitality, and tourism zones hit the toughest with little hopes of a revival. While the reforms have mainly addressed supply-side issues via a liquidity boost, it’s didn’t address industry-specific demand for a rescue package. Injecting money into businesses directly has not happened.

furthermore, in a short term, any move towards autonomy can bring back at the value of shoppers, United Nations agency can either pay additional for associates degree Indian different or deal with a less economical Indian alternative rather than enjoying the simplest product at the most cost-effective costs attainable.

Within weeks or months later, we expect a fixed strategy move towards achieving the objective of Atmanirbhar Bharat because, without them, it will redo the apathetic pathway of the Make In India initiative.

Let us hope the current plans and strategy under this mission do not hitch India’s economic progress like what happened just after the independence of India.

Renewable sources- Future of India

Imagine waking up one day, without any natural non-renewable resources left on this earth, how will it feel? Certainly, in a sense, we will be half dead.

Without any resources,without any foundation to support livelihood on this earth, survival of the humans is equal to null. The reason for which its important today to utilize the natural resources in such a manner that it becomes a boon for the generations to come. Provision of renewable resources by the nature itself, is a remedy for the same.

In case of a country, like, India, its a icing on the cake, surrounded by water on all the three sides, bestowed with a range of seasons in the country, the location on the world map is quite advantageous for India. The presence of oceanic water and large number of rivers in the country, is a significant edge in providing with hydroelectric power to the country;along with blowing winds, at the time of autumn and winter, that is a great opportunity to grasp the use of wind energy, in performing various tasks;also, the hot summer season, when sun is at the peak, is probably best suitable in providing the solar energy to the country, that directly comes from the nature, without harming any livelihood.

Renewable sources of energy –

  • Water resources –

Water, one of the basic necessities of any humans’ life, is considered as a renewable material when carefully controlled usage and treatment is followed. If it not, it would become a non-renewable resource at the location. Hydroelectricity, is generated from the fast flowing water, which becomes a renewable source. In India, projects like, Bhakra Nagal, Damodar Valley corporation, the Kopili Hydel project, are currently in working, but a lot more can be produced using Tidal waves, which is currently in not a much use, as it could be.

  • Solar Energy

India being a tropical country, has enormous possibilities of tapping solar energy. Photovoltaic technology converts sunlight directly into electricity. Today, the solar energy is used mostly by the people living in remote and rural areas, which contributes to environmental conservation and adequate supply of manure in agriculture. The largest solar power plant of India is located at Madhapur, near Bhuj, here solar energy is used to sterlise milk cans.

  • Wind Power

India stands as a wind super power in the world. In most of the states in the country, such as, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat, Kerala, Rajasthan, and even Lakshadweep, have the largest wind farm cluster which are well known for effective use of wind energy in the country.

The above stated are the major sources of renewable energy, apart from these, Biogas, and Geothermal energy, are major renewable sources that are helpful in generating mass energy, as well as electricity. Being a progressive country, India is heading towards the development of these resources that can help control the exploitation of other natural non-renewable resources.

Where are we lagging?

Despite having the largest availability of natural renewable sources of energy, India is producing less than what its capacity enables it to. Every state of the country has some or the other resource accumulated within it. But, due to –

  • Lack of technology
  • Lack of human approach to the resources
  • Lack of precise knowledge of resources
  • Lack of interest of financial institutions to fund projects
  • Safe guard duty on imported solar panels
  • Ambiguity over goods and services tax on solar equipment
  • Low investor sentiment due to delay by discoms to clean energy developers

It has become difficult to use them, also, the presence of other natural resources that are in use, currently, people are not inclined towards using these renewable energy resources.

Plans and programs –

India’s installed capacity touched around 86GW by November end. This includes solar, wind, small hydro, biomass, waste to energy and others. Around 30GW renewable capacity including 18GW solar and 10GW wind energy is under implementation. Besides, around 40GW including 36GW solar and 3.4GW wind energy, is being tendered.

https://m.economictimes.com/industry/energy/power/india-set-to-cross-100gw-renewable-energy-capacity-mark-in-2020/articleshow/72977561.cms

Schemes such as, PM-KUSUM, SPDA, PRAAPTI, have helped the private sectors to pull up their socks and work in the director that would make the country self reliant, or Atam nirbhar. The future certainly depends on these energy resources, bringing a new stream of development into the country.

Prevention from depletion of natural resources from the earth is a step ahead, by installing the new type of techniques for the development of human race.

India -china on going relation.

India and China are going in locked in an eye ball to eye ball face off in Laddakh with each other.Since 5 May,2020 chinese and indian troops have engaged in face-offs and skirmishes at location along the Sino Indian Border, including near the disputed Hanging lake in Ladakh.In May, chinese objected the construction of Indian road in Galwan river valley.On 15 of June 20 Indian personnel including a colonel,were killed in a clash with Chinese troops in Galwan valley.The clash resulted in biggest confrontation between the two militaries.Indian goverment has taken a decision in order to respond to the border dispute with China.Prime minister Naredra Modi said, has taken a decision of boycotting Chinese application in India ie,zoom ,tik-tok,shareit along with that bycooting chinese goods and this teach “China a lesson”. However various types of action are taken on the economic front including cancellation of certain contacts with Chinese firm.

The Chinese Invasion

The Covid-19 virus, the Ladakh standoff and the Indian Prime Minister’s stress on self-reliance have led to multiple calls for the boycotting of Chinese products and the Asian country in its entirety. With the government announcing a 20 lakh crore package and Sonam Wangchuk detailing the various reasons to boycott Chinese products, the call for self-reliance has only gotten stronger.

The Make in India campaign has so far been unsuccessful in fulfilling the vision that the BJP led Indian government had set out to accomplish. However, it was a step in the right direction as the much-needed impetus for the Indian economy. Yet a total boycott of a country and it’s products is not feasible for a country like India and will take time. The superior quality Chinese products at affordable pricing are what led to the invasion of Chinese products in almost all countries including India. The “Atmanirbhar Campaign” will act as a catalyst to the dwindling “Make in India Campaign” that has underperformed.

However, a total like to like replacement of the Chinese hardware and software will take a lot of time. The current Indian hardware and software fail to match up to the Chinese standards. Yet the Indian industries will fail to develop and mould itself quickly unless there is a surge in demand and a dire need to do so. Thus the exclusion of Chinese products is a necessity for the Indian industries to develop which in turn will lead to a creation of jobs that will serve the economy and aid in much faster growth.

Indian citizens have been quick to attack Chinese products and softwares from its creation of the, “Remove China Apps” app that removes Chinese applications installed in your phone. TikTok, a Chinese app that has 467 million Indian users has contributed substantially to the revenue generated by the Chinese application. Initially, Indian netizens had first attacked the Chinese application over a feud between a TikToker and a Youtuber which led to the app being downgraded to a 1.3 rating from its initial 4.9 ratings. However, Google was quick to remove all the recent one-star ratings from the application. With Google pulling down the recent 1-star ratings, Indians have started uninstalling TikTok along with other Chinese applications like UC Browser, CamScanner etc over the Ladakh feud and with Sonam Wangchuk leading the campaign to remove Chinese apps within a week and Chinese hardware in a year. India imports goods worth more than 50 billion dollars from China in contrast to a miserly 2.5 billion dollars in exports to China.

If India proceeds with putting a halt to the Chinese invasion in its market, India would suffer from a paucity with regard to capital goods, machinery, electricals, chemicals to go along with intermediate and consumer goods. India’s heavy reliance on China makes it difficult to put an end to imports cold turkey. India should focus on a gradual decline in imports while developing a sustainable infrastructure for the production of goods in their own country. A sound infrastructure and production in India will give a major boost that India is in desperate need of. India can then finally be independent and their over-reliance on FDI can diminish.
