The electronic market of India is growing and developing with rapid momentum. Understanding this growth and with the Aim to position India as a global hub for Electronics System Design and Manufacturing, Union Cabinet approved National Policy on Electronics 2019 (NPE 2019) yesterday.
This policy proposed by Ministry of Electronics and IT aims to position India as a global hub in manufacturing and designing with encouragement encouraging and driving capabilities in the country for developing core components, including chipsets, and creating an enabling environment for the industry to compete globally.
Key factors of NPE 2019-
Create eco-system for globally competitive ESDM sector: Promoting domestic manufacturing and export in the entire value-chain of ESDM.
Provide incentives and support for manufacturing of core electronic components.
Provide a special package of incentives for mega projects which are extremely high-tech and entail huge investments, such as semiconductor facilities display fabrication, etc.
Formulate suitable schemes and incentive mechanisms to encourage new units and expansion of existing units.
Promote Industry-led R&D and innovation in all sub-sectors of electronics, including grass root level innovations and early stage Start-ups in emerging technology areas such as 5G, loT/ Sensors, Artificial Intelligence (Al), Machine Learning, Virtual Reality (VR), Drones, Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Photonics, Nano-based devices, etc.
Provide incentives and support for significantly enhancing the availability of skilled manpower, including re-skilling.
Special thrust on Fabless Chip Design Industry, Medical Electronic Devices Industry, Automotive Electronics Industry and Power Electronics for Mobility and Strategic Electronics Industry.
Create a Sovereign Patent Fund (SPF) to promote the development and acquisition of IPs in the ESDM sector.
Promote trusted electronics value chain initiatives to improve national cybersecurity profile.
NPE 2019 proposes to build on that foundation to propel the growth of the ESDM industry in the country. The National Policy of Electronics 2019 (NPE 2019) replaces the National Policy of Electronics 2012 (NPE 2012).
The Policy will lead to the formulation of several schemes, initiatives, projects and measures for the development of the ESDM sector in the country as per the roadmap predicted in the policy.
The major targets drown through this policy are Promote domestic manufacturing and export in the entire value-chain of ESDM for economic development to achieve a turnover of US$ 400 billion (approximately Rs 26,00,000 crore) by 2025. This will include targeted production of 1.0 billion (100 crores) mobile handsets by 2025, valued at US$ 190 billion (approximately Rs 13,00,000 crore), including 600 million (60 crores) mobile handsets valued at US$ 110 billion (approximately Rs 7,00,000 crore) for export.
This policy will enable the flow of investment and technology, leading to higher value addition in the domestically manufactured electronic products, increased electronics hardware manufacturing in the country and their export while generating substantial employment opportunities.
