The MSME ministry in cooperation with Toys Association of India (TAI) and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has planned to set up an innovation centre for toys in Ghaziabad. The initiative has been made to push the government for setting up the centre with the help of TAI, the land for which was allotted around a decade back.

 “We’re trying to bring back the initiative that began way back and get an agreement done between the government and TAI for setting up of an innovation centre for toy manufacturing,” said RK Mathur, MSME secretary while inaugurating the 6th Toy Biz International Expo at Pragati Maidan on Friday.

“While the toy manufacturers can use the ministry’s design clinic scheme for innovative designing, the domestic manufacturers need to take care while using materials, chemicals and designing toys for children,” Mathur added.

TAI at the inauguration cautioned government against cheaper Chinese toys flooding Indian market and urged it provide support in manufacturing better designed and cheaper toys.

Raj Kumar, President, TAI stated, “There’s a need for government’s support, so that recommendations made by the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion in 2009 could be in place.”

“We’ve given proposal to government to set up toy libraries and we’ll provide toys,” he added saying, “Instead of fighting over the anti-dumping duty issue to prevent Chinese toys, we want to have our own capacity-building and innovation along with educating people to go for Indian toys instead of cheaper Chinese ones.”
