The Commerce and Industry Ministry today said the Make in India logo has been designed by “young Indians”.

Responding to media reports, Secretary in the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) Amitabh Kant said: “Logo has been designed by young Indians led by an Indian creative director. This is the Indian subsidiary of W & K (Weiden+Kennedy).”

“Logo a perfect example of #MakeInIndia. World is welcome to come and make in India using Indian talent and resources!,” Kant said in his tweet.

According to media reports, the logo of Make in India is designed by a foreign company’s Indian arm. The report has quoted an RTI reply by the ministry.

Last year too saw similar issues raised about the logo.

At that point, the government had dismissed the reports that the logo was inspired by a Swiss bank advertisement, saying the symbol has a ‘vibrant and dynamic’ lion as against a ‘dull and boring’ picture in the Swiss ad campaign.

    Land of Koop Mandooks ( Frogs in the Well ) ? How else can you describe some people trying to raise a controversy around the fact that the LION logo of " Make in India " initiative was designed by the Indian Subsidiary of an AMERICAN Company ? Meaning ? National honour was lost ? It speaks poorly of the Koop Mandook mentality of some of us that Shri Amitabh Kant ( architect of Make in India initiative ) had to " defend " this by tweeting : " Logo has been designed by young Indians led by an Indian creative director . This is an Indian Subsidiary of W & K " I get a feeling that those people trying to rake up a controversy must be thinking : " Ah ! This has to be some sinister plot of imperialist powers trying to subvert the Indian democracy Like the Trojan Horse of the past , American ( W&K ) capitalists seems to have conspired to defeat Indian manufacturing by hiding evil software code inside that LION logo image , using secret Steganography " These small-minded people are forgetting that : * Some 16 million Indians ( largest diasporas in the World ), are working abroad * Annually , they are remitting to India , approx $ 70 Billion * Of these , 7 million Indians working in Gulf are remitting $ 40 Billion * An overwhelming majority of Indians working overseas are highly qualified professionals * Many are occupying the CEO positions in big American Companies(Google / MS / PEPSI ) * A huge number of Indians are working in USA subsidiaries of INDIAN Companies * They are designing world-cl products / services for their AMERICAN clients , including USA government ( Space / Defense / Energy Solutions / Cyber Security etc ) * Many Indians have even reached high ranking positions in USA government * Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister of Singapore, are of Indian origin ( country which is always at rank # 1 in Ease of Doing Business ! ) * National Health Service of UK is heavily dependent on Indian doctors/nurses * Foreign countries are proud of the contribution that Indians make locally in their countries * Even today , Americans are grateful that it was the COBOL knowing ,Indian Software engineers who saved the collapse of American economy in 2000 , during Y2K crisis ! When will our narrow-minded citizens stop looking at the nationality / language / religion etc of a person who is contributing to our progress ? Are they forgetting that, at the very heart of the " Make in India " initiative is invocation of : " AHI DEVO BHAVA " inviting FOREIGN companies to set up their businesses in India ? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ hemen parekh 15 Jan 2016 / blogs

    If Udaya Kumar of IIT Guwahati could design the Indian Rupee logo (₹) in 2010 through an open compeion among Indian residents, why not "Make in India" logo?
