Navigating the Booming Electronics Manufacturing Sector with Bhatt & Joshi Associates
India’s electronics manufacturing sector is experiencing unprecedented growth, fueled by landmark government initiatives such as Make in India, Digital India, and the National Policy on Electronics. This piece delves deep into the fabric of this burgeoning sector, unpacking its trajectory, the regulations that steer it, and how Bhatt & Joshi Associates, a premier legal powerhouse, fortifies businesses within this space.
India’s Electronics Manufacturing: A Snapshot
India’s electronics manufacturing sector, projected to soar to a staggering USD 400 billion by 2025, is especially driven by the demand for mobile devices, which alone engulfs over half the market share. Such impressive growth is a testament to the Indian government’s push towards creating an indigenous manufacturing ecosystem. While the Make in India initiative beckons enterprises to set their manufacturing bases in India, the National Policy on Electronics envisions the nation as a global electronics manufacturing nexus.
Governmental Tailwinds for the Electronics Sector
To provide impetus to the electronics manufacturing realm, the Indian government introduced a slew of policies and incentives. A flagship among them is the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme rolled out in 2020, poised to magnetize investments to the tune of USD 1 billion and forge employment avenues for over 200,000 individuals. Further bolstering the sector are the Modified Special Incentive Package Scheme (M-SIPS) – providing fiscal incentives for investments, and the Electronics Development Fund (EDF) – a catalyst for innovation and research.
Legal Landscape: Rules that Shape the Electronics Manufacturing Sector
The sector operates within the ambit of various regulatory frameworks such as the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy, the Information Technology Agreement (ITA), and the Export-Import (EXIM) policy. Notably, the FDI policy permits a full 100% FDI via the automatic channel. Meanwhile, the ITA facilitates duty-free electronic imports, and the EXIM policy lays out the rules of the game for electronics trade.
