A few changes in policies can make the PLI scheme even more efficient
PLI SCHEME COMPLEMENTING MAKE IN INDIA INITIATIVE
The Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme is a government initiative that aims to boost domestic manufacturing and attract foreign investment in India. The scheme provides financial incentives to manufacturers who produce goods locally and meet certain criteria such as minimum investment and production targets.
The Make in India initiative is a similar government program that aims to promote domestic manufacturing and reduce dependence on imports. The PLI scheme complements the Make in India initiative by providing additional incentives to manufacturers who produce goods locally and meet certain criteria. This helps to create jobs, boost economic growth, and reduce the trade deficit by increasing exports.
PLI CREATING A GROWTH ECOSYSTEM
The PLI scheme is expected to create a growth ecosystem for the economy by promoting domestic manufacturing and reducing dependence on imports. This will help to create jobs, boost economic growth, and reduce the trade deficit by increasing exports. The scheme is also expected to attract foreign investment in India by providing financial incentives to manufacturers who produce goods locally and meet certain criteria such as minimum investment and production targets.
In order to make the PLI scheme even more efficient, some changes in policies that could be recommended are –
Simplification of the application process: The application process for the PLI scheme could be simplified to make it easier for manufacturers to apply for incentives.
Increase in the number of sectors covered: Currently, the PLI scheme covers only a few sectors such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, and textiles. The scheme could be expanded to cover more sectors such as renewable energy and electric vehicles.
Increase in the incentive amount: The incentive amount provided under the PLI scheme could be increased to make it more attractive for manufacturers.
Reduction in compliance burden: The compliance burden for manufacturers could be reduced by simplifying regulations and procedures.
Promotion of research and development: The PLI scheme could be used to promote research and development in various sectors by providing incentives for innovation and technology development.
MSME & Start-up – Involvement of MSMEs and start-ups is missing although they contribute approx 40 % of India’s GDP.
