The approved investments of Rs 4,614 crore are likely to generate net incremental production of around Rs 81,254 crore and direct employment of about 44 thousand people.
The investments in Air Conditioners will lead to manufacturing components across the complete value chain including components which are not manufactured in India with sufficient quantity.
At present, there is insignificant manufacturing of certain high value components of ACs like Compressors, copper tubing and aluminium stock for foils. Many other components like control assemblies for indoor units (IDU) or outdoor units (ODU), display units, brushless direct current motors, valves etc. are not manufactured in enough quantity.
All these components will now be manufactured in India in significant quantities. Similarly, LED Chip packaging, LED Drivers, LED Engines, LED Light Management Systems, PCBs including metal clad PCBs and Wire wound inductors etc. will be manufactured in India in high quantities.
It can be noted that The central government has given approval to introduce the PLI Scheme for 13 key sectors with total outlay of Rs 1,97,291 crore. The decision has been taken to bring manufacturing at the center stage and emphasize its significance in driving India’s growth and creating jobs.
Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) is coordinating the implementation of all PLI Schemes. DPIIT is also the nodal department for the PLI Scheme for White Goods - Air Conditioners and LED lights sector - with an outlay of Rs 6,238 crore.
As per the information provided by Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the proposal of DPIIT for the PLI Scheme for White Goods for manufacture of components and sub-assemblies of ACs and LED Lights was approved by the Union Cabinet chaired by PM Modi on April 7, 2021.
The Scheme is to be implemented over a seven year period, from FY2021-22 to FY2028-29 and has an outlay of Rs 6,238 crore.
