The government has placed electronics manufacturing on high priority with a major focus on initiatives such as Digital India and Make in India.
The draft national policy on electronics that has seen multiple consultations so far will soon be finalised and taken up by the cabinet, IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on December 14.
The government has been working to make the country a $1 trillion digital economy. With the focus on export-oriented initiatives in electronics, the new policy will help in making India a hub of electronics manufacturing to serve domestic and the global markets.
"Production of hardware manufacturing has increased over three years. This shows that India is capable of producing globally competitive products. Medical electronics, defence electronics, and automotive are the three areas that are going to bring excitement in the electronics industry in the coming time," said Prasad at Electronics Summit organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
The government has placed electronics manufacturing on high priority with a major focus on initiatives such as Digital India and Make in India.The industry must now keep a mass movement approach, in terms of creating more human resources, while also moving from scaling up to skilling the industry, the minister added.
