It will be operational for five years with a total estimated outlay of Rs 1.45 lakh crore. The scheme will be implemented by the concerned ministries and departments. Savings from one PLI scheme of an approved sector can be utilised to fund another sector.
Brokerage firm William O'Neil India pointed out PLI scheme of the government aims at providing incentives to the companies with a vision of making India a hub for manufacturing and exports.
Under the scheme, eligible entities receive incentives on incremental sales from products manufactured in domestic units. The scheme has been introduced to spur domestic manufacturing and reduce import bills.
