Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari spoke with CNBC-TV18 on the government's production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme, the progress it was making and the bottleneck the government was facing in implementing the initiative.
Nitin Gadkari was speaking on the response so far from across all the sectors for which the scheme had been implemented and whether it had started off according to the government's expectations. He observed that the scheme had the potential to significantly enhance the scale of manufacturing in India.
"Our track record in meeting the targets is excellent. Under the leadership of our prime minister, we are marching towards this target. There are lots of difficulties but there are some people who turn problems into opportunities. The mission of our government is to accept the challenge, improve the situation and march towards achieving the target," said Gadkari.
