“I had specially discussed the rich heritage of India in Sports and Games. The local toys of India are eco-friendly, consonant with both tradition and nature,” he said.

“Due to our Youngsters, Start-ups, and Entrepreneurs, what our toy industry has achieved, the successes we have achieved, no one could have imagined… Earlier, when toys worth more than Rs 3 thousand crores used to come from outside, now their import has reduced by 70 percent and it is a matter of joy that during this period, India has exported toys worth more than two thousand six hundred crore rupees to foreign countries,” the Prime Minister said.

He said all this happened during the Corona period.

“India’s toy sector has proven its mettle by transforming itself. Indian manufacturers are now making toys based on Indian Mythology, History, and Culture”.
