Objectives: To know the opinion about possibilities of Make in India program and to study the awareness of Logistics, Quality Management and Production Planning and control concepts among respondents. Methods/Analysis: Descriptive research design was used. The primary data was collected from Urban and Rural areas around Thanjavur city from 390 respondents using structured questionnaire adopting simple random sampling technique. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, one-way Analysis of variance and Multiple Regression. Findings: Only 31.53 % of the respondents believe it is possible to make in India. This shows that the study respondents feel that it is impossible to make in India with the present knowledge about the modern manufacturing concepts. Adequate knowledge about the concepts of Logistics Quality Management and Production planning and Control were not found among the respondents. The respondents were also not much aware about the adoption of production concepts in the Indian manufacturing industries. The study revealed that there is no significant difference in the knowledge about the manufacturing concepts between the Rural and Urban people.
