The pace of Economic and Industrial progress is directly proportional to the efforts made towards Research & Development (R&D) which acts as a reliable measure of Innovation capacity. Research and Development (R&D) spend in India has grown around 0.9 per cent of India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which is 1.25 percent in Brazil, 1.84 percent in China, 2.7 percent in USA , Japan spends about 3.67 percent of its GDP and Israel is 3.93 percent.
More needs to be done to match the Government of India's target of R&D expenditure of 2 per cent of GDP that was set in 2010 and reaffirmed in 2012. In order to encourage Innovation, Government and Corporate India need to increase their R&D spend as Innovation could be the key driver for India's future growth under the "Make in India" policy.
