Subject: Don't depend on small incentives, subsidies; increase competitiveness:
Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday asked service exporters not to depend on small subsidies or incentives to increase exports and instead enhance competitiveness. He said the industry should work on increasing and strengthening their competitiveness to tap global markets.

Ambitious targets of exports should not be affected by "small support subsidies and incentives. That has been the bone of contention between some services sectors and the government," Goyal said.

The sector has time and again demanded continuation of Service Exports from India Scheme (SEIS). The government has discontinued the scheme.

"If I look at the records, when SEIS was there, actually your exports did not grow at all, very nominal growth was there," he said adding "you must have observed that gradually I am removing all subsidies from the export system...because this makes us uncompetitive, this holds us back".

Citing examples, he said the IT sector never asks for any subsidy and they record healthy growth rate in exports.

"How long will this mentality last that give us Rs 2, we will be able to increase exports...We need to look at our competitive edge."

On free trade agreements, the minister said India is seeking more market access for services sector.

He added that opening up of the domestic legal services sector will benefit Indian lawyers as they would get huge opportunities in other countries.

There is no consensus yet on the issue among legal professionals here and if it is made later, then "we can provide legal services in the world," he said.

He highlighted that people like chartered accountants and those in IT sector do not fear competition and are working in different parts of the world.

When asked about giving work visas to foreign students here, the minister said: "We do it bilaterally with countries because we do not want large inflows coming from only certain geographies. So it has to be seen, whom we want to give work visas".

It should not become a tool to get permanent residency in India and "people who are already illegal immigrants (here), we are trying to take (them) out of the country," Goyal said adding India wants high quality talent to come and every country protects their borders.

"I recently visited the Stanford University, they are keen to collaborate with Indian IIMs and private universities....Saudi Arabia wants IIT campus....Why can't IIT set up campus in Saudi Arabia," he added.
