Sawhney disclosed that from the near assembly, India is currently moving in a direction to bring sub-assemblies and component manufacturing in India. The MeiTY secretary said that for the past five years he has witnessed a resurgence of manufacturing in India, starting with assembling of mobile phones, reported PTI.

With an explosion in electronics manufacturing, the government is increasingly trying to bring supply chain in the country, the secretary said. He further stated that the new technologies are of utmost importance for Digital India and delivery of e-governance services.


Modern technologies to lead the way
On this occasion, Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said it is not possible to become a manufacturing nation without adopting modern technologies like artificial intelligence or without adopting machine learning.

This message comes from Kant at a time when government’s premier think tank Niti Aayog and the ministry of electronics and IT (MeitY) are debating over the creation of an artificial intelligence mission.

Various analysts and academia stalwarts are of the opinion that the Indian industry should take the lead to invest in AI in order to bring about a holistic change in the country’s electronics ecosystem.



  1. It is very important that we make all the printed circuit boards in India as it is the basic component in any electronic equipment. we are already a printed circuit board manufacturer since 1990 and looking for the government support.

    • I fully agree with you Mrs Rao. Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is the back bone of electronics component. Without PCB manufacturing there is no real electronics manufacturing in any country. Manufacturing of Printed Circuit Boards also create huge employment opportunity as its a highly labour intensive industry. Few large size PCB manufacturing companies can generate employment for millions.
