PLI Schemes for Making Large Electronics extended by One Year: FM Nirmala Sitharaman

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, on June 28, announced that the duration of the Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) mass production program had been extended by one year.

The program would run from 2020-21 and continue for a period of five years. The Minister of Finance said the program would continue until 2025-26.
Participating companies will receive any five years to meet their production targets under the program.

“The stimulus was effective for the last year of 2019-20. However, companies were unable to raise funds for the sale due to the closure of COVID-19,” he added.
In November 2020, the Union Cabinet approved the 10-sector PLI plan.

The PLI white goods program came into effect on April 1, 2021. Under this program, qualified players working in the air-conditioner and LED production facility will be awarded incentives worth R23,238 million over a five-year period.
In addition, the Laptops and IT Hardware scheme has a total size of approximately Rs 7,350 crore over four years.

It also puts an encouraging 4-6 per cent increase in additional sales made for the 2019-20 foundation year, five years. This means that companies will only be able to receive incentives if they exceed the basic production year numbers.
