Giving this information on Wednesday, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur said that this will help in increasing the manufacturing capabilities of the country.

“Promoting new age technology will help build a cutting-edge automotive value chain in the country and provide the much-needed impetus to the manufacturing of state-of-the-art automotive products in India,” ACMA President Sanjay Kapoor said in a statement.

The country’s largest automaker Tata Motors termed the PLI scheme as progressive and transformative.

Girish Wagh, Executive Director, Tata Motors, said in a statement, “The plan is both progressive and transformative. It reiterates India’s commitment to a sustainable future and moves the country towards green mobility.

He said it offered a number of meaningful incentives across the entire value chain involved in manufacturing of battery-powered electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cells, as well as their supporting infrastructure and exports.

The PLI scheme for the Automotive and Automotive Components Industry will see fresh investments of over Rs 42,500 crore over five years and increased production of over Rs 2.3 lakh crore. Along with this, new opportunities of more than 7.5 lakh jobs will be created.
