Several AC manufacturers show interest in PLI scheme

52 companies have filed their application with committed investment of Rs 5,866 crore under the PLI scheme to incentivize the domestic manufacturing of components of White Goods (Air conditioners and LED lights), applications for which closed on 15 September, 2021.

Several companies like Daikin, Panasonic, Hitachi, Mettube, Nidec, Voltas, Bluestar, Havells, Amber, EPack, TVS-Lucas, Dixon, R K Lighting, Uniglobus, RadhikaOpto, Syska among others have applied for manufacturing critical components of Air conditioners and LED Lights.

Applications have been filed for production of components which are not manufactured in India presently with sufficient capacity. For Air Conditioners, several companies will be manufacturing compressors, copper tubing, aluminium stock for foils, control assemblies for IDU or ODU, Display units, BLDC motors among other components. Similarly, for LED Lights 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.

The Union Cabinet has given approval to the Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme for White Goods (Air Conditioners and LED lights) to be implemented over FY 2021-22 to FY 2028-29 with an outlay of Rs. 6238 Crore on 7th April 2021.
