      Official Cd Review:
      – Introduction gives a good sense, but the sentence restructuring would make it more better.
      – Point No 2 regarding Exports does not convey proper meaning, I think you misread the data.
      – Point No 3 regarding Software power talks only about increasing exports, but you failed to establish a link between the two.
      – You have brought good arguments, but language is a bit issue.
      – Conclusion is okay.
      – You have potential to do better

    After a continuing lead in manufacture sector for nearly 30 years there is drop in China’s low-end manufacturing, The drop is primarily caused due to ;
    -The rising wages, The average Chinese manufacturing wage is now higher than in Asia’s other major emerging economies.
    -Higher land costs and real exchange-rate appreciation over the past decade .
    Sectors with strong potential :
    -The immediate impact of such change can be leveraged from the textile, apparel and footwear sector where China took the lead till now.
    The Silver lining moment for India :How India can reap the benefits?
    -Time to reap demographic dividend-65 percent of the population under the age 35 years fulfill the labour demand at reasonable cost.
    – Government’s” Make in India ” initiative has created the right policy environment for growth in manufacturing
    -Textile, apparel and footwear are strong areas of our manufacturing capabilities and the bottlenecks need to be identified and resolved.Small-scale operations, delay in port clearance, heavy duty on man-made fibers are few examples of the problem faced by the textile Industry.
    Challenges:
    -The emergence of Bangladesh, Vietnam and other South East Asian Nations has increased competition.
    -the inclusion of countries such as Vietnam in the Trans-Pacific partnership will make low-cost advantages accruing to India an uphill battle.
    -Artificial Intelligence and Robotics-Use of 3D printers by the Nike and unveiling of a Robot which can stitch at the University of Georgia are early warning bells of danger ahead.
    Way Forward :
    -Doing away with quarterly returns and reduction of tax on yarn from 18 % to 12% is a welcoming step.
    -The government should also do away with the prohibition on private procurement of Khadi by designers thereby enhancing the market as well employment.
    -Enhancing the skill capability of the workers through skill India Mission.
    -Developing institute of the national importance of footwear and Textiles thereby increasing professionals to steer the growth.
    Manufacturing growth is a precursor to economic growth,the given capabilities supplemented with positive external environment create a strong ground for India to leverage it as a solution for unemployement prevailing in the country.

      -Don’t use shortforms in the answer. You can use them only after using a full form for first time in the answer (CMLV). GST is okay to some extent.
      – Arguments were presented in very nice manner. Language was good.
      – Your approach is general…though some of the points are good…
      – Answer is very one-sided. You failed to present the challenges that lie in India’s especially the Bangladesh and Vietnam angle. Read the given link for more details.
      – Conclusion is okay.

      Thank you for the review @ramakant-sahoo sir. Sir could please give me one example how my answer is general. I have been getting this feedback on many of my answers and I am not able to understand it with respect to my answer.

      Official Cd Review:
      -Your Introduction is not proper. First of all, see that question is not about Unemployment, it is just one of the aspects
      – First two arguments lacks any substance, just superflous ( read some other answers to know about solid arguments)
      – Last 3 arguments were good though they could have been better.
      – Answer is very one-sided. You failed to present the challenges that lie in India’s especially the Bangladesh and Vietnam angle. Read the given link for more details.
      – There is a scope of improvement in Conclusion.

      Official Cd Review:
      – Introduction should give a solid foundation to your answer, you starting with a very vague type of statement such as “In recent reports” – Quote name of report if you are starting your answer with such a statement.
      – Most of the arguments are very general, but brought two good points favouable multilateral and bilaterlal treaties and clean energy
      -You also failed to highlight the challenges and steps to overcome, that will enable India to take that share India might be losing to Vietnam, Bangladesh, etc.
      – Conclusion is good.

    Manufacturing sector assumes great importance to India.Since,manufacturing sector is the largest employment nerating sector,manufacturing led growth is crucial to face the problem of rising unemployment.India could get good opportunities to expand its manufacturing activities in coming decades,as China is slowly switching over from low end manufacturing.However,it could get stiff completion from other developing countries including vietnam and Bangladesh.
    China dominates the global market in terms of its manufacturing sector.Especially in appreal,furniture and textiles.However,according to the UN contrade,China is moving out from low end manufacturing due to the risk of increasing wages which could affect its global competitiveness.This would provide a fair opportunity to the developing countries to fill the vacumm.Given the huge amount of labour and almost flattened growth rate of wages,India would have fair opportunity to increase its manufacturing base and produce more employment.However,India could face challenge from other developing countries especially from Bangladesh and Vietnam which has already increased their manufacturing base in these areas.
    To avail this opportunity and reap the more benefits,India should follow these measures-
    1.India is ranked low in global competitive index.To compete in global economy,India should focus on quality of manufacturing which is directly linked with providing skills to the labours.
    2.Government should focus on promoting SMES in the sectors of textiles,applarel and furniture.Providing necessary skills is also important in this case also.
    3.Apparel sector has huge potential for generating employment for women.Government should focus on generating women enterprises in these sectors .
    4.Efficiency of manufacturing also depend upon other factors including labour laws,participation of women in labour,ease of doing business etc.government should focus on these issues.
    4.Large labour force is still exist in agriculture sector.focus should also be laid on transition of labour force from agriculture to manufacturing sector.This would create more labour force and thereby manufacturing sector would get boost.
    Thus,switching of China from low end manufacturing providing not only producing opportunity in terns of enhancing manufacturing activity but also provides a way to lay more focus on ongoing initiatives like ‘make in India’,’skill india’etc.India can compete in global economy and leverage the benefits of available opportunities only after addressing the challenges that presently exist in the economy.

      Official Cd Review:
      – Introduction is good, a line of some statistics would have made it better ( Manf contribution to GDP and labour absorption)
      – Wrong argument: “risk of increasing wages” The wages have actually become thrice.
      – Spell error: vacuum ( correct spelling)
      – Arguments are good, also justifies the question – full marks on that.
      -Exceeded the word limit. The expertise lies in writing exact points within word limit…
      -Conclusion is appropriate

    China is moving up the value chain create opportunities and support strong economic growth in some of Asia’s “frontier” emerging markets including India. It requires workable business environments , relative macroeconomic and political stability to complement low wages, strong demographics and geographical advantages.
    India should shift focus to low end manufacturing like China to take full advantage of its demographic dividend to avert an unemployment crisis. China lifted millions of people out of poverty in the last three decades by focusing on developing its own manufacturing industry. India’s fast pace of growth can persist depends on how quickly it realises the feasible route to inclusive growth.
    To compete with rivals like Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico and Poland which is giving India tough competition , the following measures can be taken :
    1) India can rely on the manufacturing industry to create more jobs, reduce poverty and create a middle class that can drive consumption.
    2) India should focus more on developing its low-end industries like textile, apparel and footwear , to create more jobs, especially to women workers.
    3) India can give more focus to “Make in India” initiative launched by Prime Minister in 2014 – which aims to transform India into a manufacturing powerhouse.
    4) Enhancing the skill capability of the workers through skill India Mission.
    Thus for the sake of creating more jobs to accommodate the growing working population, India should not neglect the manufacturing sector, especially low-end labor-intensive industries. This could also help absorb a large number of workers who are employed in unorganised sectors.

      Official Cd Review:
      -Introduction is good, but first statement is not making sense ( not comprehensible)
      – The second part of your answer loses the pitch of question, you are just presenting arguments which does not match with demand of question.
      – first argument needs correction since the context of question is to capture global market share (read the news link)
      – second argument is superfluous and redundant. Give some solid arguments.
      – Conclusion is also missing the tone of question. Just talking about creating more jobs and manufacturing will not fetch marks.

      Official Cd Review:
      Introduction is not interesting, very general and that too not in sync with demands of question, you didn’t even explain the reason why china is vacating this space.
      -The arguments are also general and would fetch average marks only. Some arguments should be solid, otherwise it becomes a repitition of what general answer. Read some good answers on this blog.
      – Though conclusion talks about challenges, but very briefly. A better approach would have been to write 2 -3 arguments on challenges posed by Bangladesh and Vietnam.
      – You have scope to improve your answer, read article in detail.
