Indian electronics get Rs 1,000 Crore lifeline; aims for robust manufacturing & exports. 

In a recent move, the Empowered Committee of the PLI Scheme has greenlit a substantial Rs 1,000 Crore outlay to invigorate India’s electronics sector. This strategic decision comes as a response to claims surpassing Rs 3,400 Crore, highlighting the industry’s pressing demands and the scheme’s broader vision to fortify domestic manufacturing, catalyze job creation, and amplify exports.

Launched amid the 2021 pandemic, the PLI Scheme resonated with a vision for 14 pivotal industrial sectors. Ranging from medical device production to drone technology, the initiative boasted a staggering Rs 1.97 lakh crore budget.

An insider shared with PTI about the committee’s recent nod to a Rs 1,000 Crore disbursement specifically for the electronics domain. “Actual disbursement to beneficiary companies should materialize within days,” the source revealed. This fiscal quarter witnesses its inaugural government incentive distribution.

The medical, electronics, and pharma sectors have reaped the most from this initiative. Approximately 32 entities, including mobile and specified electronics component manufacturers, have earned approval. Proposals for these incentives originate from the respective governing ministries, ultimately reaching the Empowered Committee for a final say.

A composite of significant departments like NITI Aayog, the Ministry of Information and Technology, and more, the Empowered Committee meticulously vets and finalizes beneficiaries. Reports suggest their recommendations significantly influence the PLI scheme’s incentive disbursement dynamics.

By consolidating the PLI Scheme’s key players, India seeks to strategically position itself as a formidable electronics manufacturing hub, echoing the promise of self-reliance and global competitiveness.
