Europe and North America have witnessed consistent decline in the manufacturing sector over a period of time. It is also evident from the existing literature that shows growth of Indian manufacturing industries is not at all satisfactory. The objective of the chapter is to analyze the manufacturing sector in India and also to highlight key factors related to the growth of manufacturing industry with special emphasis on Eastern India.

For the estimation, cluster sampling was used to collect data from 166 respondents in India. We initially sent the questionnaire to 200 entrepreneurs out of which 34 respondents did not retrograde. As a result the total sample size was 166. The scales were made operational by using 5-point Likert scales (1 = “Strongly Disagree” to 5 = “Strongly Agree”). We also followed recommended sample size for conducting multinomial logistic regression.

It is found that liberalized foreign direct investment policy, focus on export, focus on increasing rural consumption, delicensing of industries, and financial sector liberalization significantly influence sustainable economic development.
