II. Rationale of the study
In the world of rapid growth of
globalization and changing dynamic trends, India also needs to develop its
infrastructure in order to show its presence in the global picture and to match
the high demands and the living standard of its citizens. The most important
way to keep pace with the environment for any country is to develop its
manufacturing sector. When more global and local players will invest in a
country, it will boost the trade and economic growth, develop its
infrastructure, and generate more employment opportunities for its citizens.

VI. Need and impact of Human
asset and financial services on manufacturing sector in India and overall
India’s current ranking in the
world in factory output is 10. Its overall contribution to Indian GDP is 28%
and it engages nearly 17% of the total work force. The basis of any
manufacturing organization is governed by the quantity of money it is willing
to invest and the kind of people who are going to work in it. For transforming
the health of the manufacturing sector and in order to make it a most preferred
destination for domestic as well as foreign investors and industrialists, it is
very much important to promote both fund based and non-fund based financial
services. Manufacturing firms to withstand the global competition, and to
ensure their long term sustainability, have to invest in huge quantity in
setting up and developing its infrastructure, raw material, skill development
of its human resource, and R. Hence, the manufacturing houses need such
sources which should make the finance available as and when needed. Such a
continuous need of inflow of heavy finance can only be satisfied by the
financial services. The attention of the domestic as well as foreign manufacturers
can only be sought if the investment climate is made favorable. As the
investment climate is directly proportional to manufacturers’ way of thinking,
hence, this climate needs to be favorable in every aspect. The current
technological status, available mode of finance and human resource skill set
and its availability needs to be identified along highlighting the development
initiatives and future imperatives that are required to make India a
manufacturing hub and most preferred investment destination for both local and

industry in India.
Government of India should
facilitate the promotion of more and more credit card companies and angel
investors which will benefit both the manufacturer and the consumer.
IX. Understanding the importance of human
asset in manufacturing sector in India and its impact
Besides promoting the various types
of financial services, it is also essential to tap, exploit and enhance the
immense talent and potential of the work force available in India. Rightfully
once said by the Walt Disney, “You can create, design and build the most
wonderful place in the world but it requires people to make that dream a
reality.” Indian work force is immensely talented and adaptable. In order
to develop an organization and ensure its sustained growth, it is very much
important to develop its human resource working in it. Continuous investment in
up gradation of their skills, knowledge and competencies is essential for an
organization if it wants a guaranteed survival in the immensely competitive
environment. The organization which does not understand the importance and
talent of its human asset cannot withstand the competition. A motivated, up to
date human work force will help an organization achieve its mission and vision.
Various modern HR policies include performance and career management,
development of various continuous improvement and learning programs. Focused on
the up gradation of employee’s knowledge, skill and abilities, programs such as
employee development should be promoted. Employee development is a joint,
on-going effort on the part of both the employee and the organization for which
he or she works. A highly skilled work force can accomplish higher goals than
an under skilled human asset. Employees’ performance needs to be enriched by
developing training and development programs if 100% potential of the human asset
needs to be tapped. The human potential is immense and if it is left untapped,
it will go waste. Human asset is the most valuable asset of an organization and
it needs to be continuously monitored and injected with performance development
programs, programs that increase the job satisfaction of employees, employee
welfare programs etc. The human performance can be appraised with the use of
various performance appraisal models. Organizational excellence can only be
achieved by investing continuously in the work force of the organization.
