Analyse the role of the manufacturing sector in the economic development of India. (CBSE 2017)

3. Export of manufactured goods helps in expanding trade and commerce and bringing in a significant amount of foreign exchange. Therefore, it can be concluded that India’s success lies in increasing and diversifying its manufacturing industries as quickly as possible.
