Besides, it received investment enquiries worth Rs 1.5 lakh crore.

"The multi-sectoral Make in India Week has been a great success. We've managed to get investment commitments to the tune of over Rs 15.2 lakh crore from the event," DIPP Secretary Amitabh Kant told reporters at the closing press meet at the MMRDA Grounds yesterday.

Out of the total investment commitments, the host state made up for more than half, at Rs 8 lakh crore, Kant said, adding that Maharashtra could become the gateway for the rest of the country.

Out of the total commitment pie, 30 percent have come from foreign players.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on February 13 inaugurated the maiden Make in India Week at the MMRDA Grounds at BKC in Central Mumbai.

The summit, despite a reasonably good participation from Corporate India and global companies, had its own share of shortcomings, with poor coordination among various agencies such as DIPP, PIB and industry lobby CII coming to the fore.
