Government Launches Three New Schemes to Boost Make in India
Ministery of Electronics and IT (MeitY) has announced three new schemes with a vision to build a robust manufacturing ecosystem which will be an asset to the global economy. The three schemes are named Production Linked Incentive Scheme (PLI) for Large Scale Electronics Manufacturing, Scheme for Promotion of Manufacturing of Electronic Components and Semiconductors (SPECS) and Modified Electronics Manufacturing Clusters (EMC 2.0) Scheme. The three new Schemes are expected to attract substantial investments, increase production of mobile phones and their parts/ components to around Rs.10, 00, 000 crore by 2025 and generate around 5 lakh direct and 15 lakh indirect jobs.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a clarion call for Aatma Nirbhar Bharat – a self-reliant India. This does not mean India in isolation but India as a major country of the world with appropriate technology, capital including FDI and extraordinary human resource contributing significantly to the global economy” said Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Electronics and IT, Government of India.
The PLI Scheme shall extend an incentive of 4% to 6% on incremental sales (over base year) of goods manufactured in India and covered under the target segments, to eligible companies, for a period of five years subsequent to the base year. The SPECS shall provide financial incentive of 25% on capital expenditure for the identified list of electronic goods, i.e., electronic components, semiconductor/ display fabrication units, Assembly, Test, Marking and Packaging (ATMP) units, specialized sub-assemblies and capital goods for manufacture of aforesaid goods. The EMC 2.0 shall provide support for creation of world class infrastructure along with common facilities and amenities, including Ready Built Factory (RBF) sheds / Plug and Play facilities for attracting major global electronics manufacturers, along with their supply chains.
According to Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, the triology of Schemes entail an outlay of about Rs. 50,000 crore (approximately USD 7 billion). The Schemes will help offset the disability for domestic electronics manufacturing and hence, strengthen the electronics manufacturing ecosystem in the country. The three Schemes together will enable large scale electronics manufacturing, domestic supply chain of components and state-of-the-art infrastructure and common facilities for large anchor units and their supply chain partners. These Schemes shall contribute significantly to achieving a USD 1 Trillion digital economy and a USD 5 Trillion GDP by 2025.
India’s production of electronics grew from USD 29 billion in 2014 to USD 70 billion in 2019 due to the government’s big efforts such as National Policy on Electronics, 2019, Modified Special Incentive Scheme (MSIPS), Electronics Manufacturing Clusters and Electronics Development Fund and etc. Promotion of electronics manufacturing has been a key component of Make in India program.
The growth in mobile phone manufacturing in particular has been remarkable during this period. From just 2 mobile phone factories in 2014, India now has become the 2nd largest mobile phone producer in the world. Production of mobile handsets in 2018-19 has reached 29 crore units worth Rs. 1.70 Lakh crore from just 6 crore units worth Rs. 19,000 crore in 2014. While the exports of electronics has increased from Rs. 38,263 crore in 2014-15 to Rs. 61,908 crore in 2018-19, India’s share in global electronics production has reached 3% in 2018 from just 1.3% in 2012.
TCL Shows Its Support Towards ‘Make in India’ Initiative
Following the recent announcement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a prime focus on boosting Indian products and services, TCL has reaffirmed its strong support towards the ‘Make in India’ initiative.
TCL’s first manufacturing unit in Andhra Pradesh (AP), started its construction on December 22, 2020, is also the largest manufacturing facility outside China. With an investment of INR 2400 Crores, the unit has a production capacity of 8 million (22-55 inches) TV screens and 30 million (3.5-8 inches) mobile screens, annually.
The plant also aims to generate more than 8000 direct and indirect jobs for residents in the city. It has been providing a major fillip to the consumer electronics sector in Andhra Pradesh and helping India revive from the on-going pandemic. Besides, TCL is planning to expand its business footprint across India by setting up an R&D centre in the nearby future.
Mike Chen, General Manager, TCL India, said, “We strongly support PM Modi’s Make in India’ initiative. Our first manufacturing facility in India has been constructed in line with this vision. Through this, we have been smoothly producing best-in-class TV and mobile screens to meet the changing needs of consumers in Andhra Pradesh. In fact, we have also given several employment opportunities to residents of AP and helping them survive the pandemic. Further, we have plans to expand our business and will also set up an R&D centre in the times to come.”
Tejasvi Surya, MP Inaugurates YULU Zones to Promote Public Transport
In one of its kind events, Tejasvi Surya, Member of Parliament showcased exemplary support to promote public transport and sustainable first and last-mile commute options for a better tomorrow. He inaugurated YULU zones at RV road metro station and his office. He took on to the roads of Namma Bengaluru to promote shared e-mobility in the country via a rally held from RV road metro station to his office. YULU plays a very significant role in strengthening the Smart city initiative by providing shared, and well-integrated mobility experience to the people.
Yulu’s traditional pedal bikes and electric-assist Miracle provide residents with healthy, sustainable options for daily work commute from public transportation hubs.
YULU organized the rally to create awareness amongst the citizens of Bengaluru ushering a sense of importance on the adoption of public transport and shared e-mobility for the first and the last mile.
With this one more launch in the city, YULU wants to transform the way people commute in India. YULU has been the only brand that has focused on micro-mobility to solve the first and last mile connectivity problems within the city and in the country. There is a need to control the traffic congestion as well as the rising air pollution, in order to make cities a better place to live in. The use of public transport and shared mobility is critical as it is the bridge between ensuring first and last-mile connectivity.
Tejasvi Surya, Member of Parliament said during the rally,” “The launch of a last-mile mobility alternative is part of the campaign to provide #EaseOfLiving in Bengaluru. I noticed the wide use of private transport by visitors to our office owing to the poor last-mile connectivity between our office and the nearest bus or metro stations. Now with the addition of these zones at our office and the public transport stations nearby, we have sustainable, non-polluting last-mile connectivity options to our office. The objective is to encourage the public to adopt mass transit options for their daily commute – be it the BMTC, metro or any of the new-age, app-based platforms.”
Hemant Gupta, Co-Founder and Chief of Operations, YULU also commented during the rally, “We are honored to receive support from Tejasvi, who has been the young torchbearer in promoting public transport and shared e-mobility for first and the last mile. It’s great to see how YULU has embarked on this journey which is translating into huge carbon emission savings along with helping citizens save time and money through the support of city, corporates, citizens and young leaders like Tejasvi”
More than 300 people participated in the event, riding YULU showcasing solidarity for the cause of moving India towards a sustainable future. Yulu aims to further strengthen its presence by penetrating deeper in Namma Bengaluru, where citizens can use the eco-friendly products for the short-distance commute.
