PLI scheme for telecom manufacturing gets DCC nod.

The Digital Communications Commission, highest decision-making body of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), has approved the nearly Rs 12,200 crore Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme guidelines for equipment manufacturing.

The DoT will seek a final approval from the Union cabinet in the coming weeks, followed by invitation of applications from companies, which could start from January 2021, said people aware of the matter.

The cabinet recently approved the broader PLI scheme worth Rs 12,200 crore to boost local manufacturing of telecom gear for both the domestic market and exports. The scheme will cover core transmission equipment, 4G/5G and next-generation radio access network and wireless equipment, access and customer premise equipment (CPE), Internet of Things (IoT) access devices and enterprise equipment such as switches and router, said people directly involved in framing the policy.
