PM Narendra Modi said recently that the government launched the Make in India campaign to create employment and self-employment opportunities for the youth and the government is working aggressively towards making India a Global Manufacturing Hub. He added that the government machinery will be required to make a number of corrections on the policy front and is committed to make India an easy place to do business. According to Modi, the BJP govt wants to present to the world the enormous opportunities that India offers as a base for manufacturing, design, research and development.
Interestingly enough, fintech innovator, Jignesh Shah, who created an ecosystem on the ideology of ‘Make in India’ creating millions of job opportunities for the youngsters of India, has lapped up the new growth initiatives by the PM who has also spoken about innovation in socio-agricutural activities as a business model. Jignesh Shah and his companies have also carried out various CSR activities like ‘Gramin Suvidha Kendra’ in association with India Post and ‘Pragati’ with Rotary International in the past focuing on empowering the unprivileged communities with education and training.
Over the years, Jignesh Shah has received a series of awards for his contributions towards the society. Institutional Investor had featured him among the ‘Top 30 Global Innovators in e-finance’ in 2008. He was also listed among the ‘Dominant Financial & Futures Industry Leaders for 2008’ by Futures Industry Association (FIA), Washington and was awarded the ‘Indian Express Innovation Award’ presented by the then President, Late Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. Other achievements like getting chosen among the ‘Top 20 Indians’ by CLSA and honoured with the ‘US-India Businessman of the Year’ award also proves his competency.
