The cabinet earlier approved the National Logistics Policy, which aims at reducing the transportation cost and improve the global performance of the sector.Modi last week unveiled the policy, which seeks to cut transportation costs by promoting a seamless movement of goods across the country. The cabinet also approved modifications in the scheme for semiconductors and the display manufacturing ecosystem with a uniform fiscal support of 50 per cent of the project cost for all technology nodes under the ambitious programme.
