The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued the guidelines for the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for manufacturing solar PV modules in the country.

In the official guidelines, MNRE said that the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) will act as Implementing Agency for the PLI scheme wherein will have the right to carry physical inspection of an applicant’s manufacturing units and offices through site visits. 

Under the scheme, the manufacturing units sanctioned under the programme would be eligible for getting PLI on an annual basis on sales of high-efficiency solar PV modules for 5 years from commissioning or 5 years from the scheduled commissioning date, whichever is earlier. 

While shortlisting applications for the scheme, preference will be given to manufacturers who set up higher capacity plants. However, in order to qualify for the bid, the applicant manufacturer will have to undertake to set up a manufacturing plant of minimum 1,000 MW capacity (1,000 MW each for all individual stages included in the manufacturer’s proposal)

Additionally, preference will be given to manufacturers who propose to set up a fully integrated solar PV manufacturing plant using silicon-based technology or fully integrated thin film technology or any other technology. 

Greenfield new solar PV module manufacturing units will be eligible for PLI. Brownfield projects will also be allowed to participate. PLI rate for such Brownfield projects will be 50 per cent of the rate for Greenfield projects. 

Though a manufacturer can bid for any capacity (MW), the maximum capacity that can be awarded to one bidder under the PLI scheme is 50 per cent of the bid capacity or 2000 MW, whichever is less, to accommodate at least three manufacturers under the overall envelope of ₹ 4,500 crore. PLI will be given on actual production and sales of high efficiency modules by the selected units. 

Manufacturers will be encouraged to source their material from the domestic market. The PLI amount will increase with the increased local value addition.

An Empowered Group of Secretaries (EGoS) chaired by Cabinet Secretary will monitor the PLI scheme.
