Q1 Performance Of Indian Service Industry

Q1 Performance Of The Indian Service Industry At A Glance

India has one of the most rapidly expanding service sectors in the world with the least portion of services employment, contributing to around 66% of the Indian GDP. According to data analysis, India has had a 9.2% growth in the service sector in the year 2015-16 but in the year 2014, it had the smallest share of services employment in the world. Following this, the Government made several amendments to develop India’s commercial services exports share in the global services market and this has facilitated multi-fold growth in the GDP.  If you look at the manufacturing industry too, about 34% of the manufacturing jobs are service oriented functions. The dollar’s value of final demand for manufacturers comes up to $1.48 in other services and production, thereby boosting the importance of services in the economy and in employment generation.

India’s distinctive competencies and competitive advantage formed by the knowledge-based services makes it a truly unique emerging market. Backed by several government initiatives, the services sector in India has the potential to unlock a multi-trillion dollar opportunity which can create a symbiotic growth for all nations. Here’s a look at how the Indian service industry performed in Q1, 2017.

Udyog Aadhaar Registration – Why & How

The MSME industry in India contributes to almost 40% of the gross industrial value. As a result of this, it has an extended support system from the central and state governments these days. In an effort to further simplify the processes within the industry, the Udyog Aadhaar registration was introduced. The Udyog Aadhaar (UA) is nothing but an ID for your business much like the Aadhaar cards we have for ourselves. It’s a 12-digit number that helps the government identify your company and gives you a slew of benefits under the MSMED Act of 2006.
