‘Make In India’ logo designed by foreign firm, says RTI

BHOPAL: Logo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s much-hyped Make in India initiative, which aims to brand India as a manufacturing hub is designed by a foreign company’s Indian arm, reveals a query under Right to Information Act.

Replying to query by a Madhya Pradesh-based activist, Chandra Shekhar Gaur, Union commerce and industry ministry replied, “No tenders were invited for designing Make In India logo. In 2014-15, tenders were invited by the ministry for appointing a creative agency. And on its basis, Weiden+Kennedy India Limited, was chosen. And it’s this company which designed the logo for Make In India”. Courtesy: timesofindia
