“Being a technocrat himself, the minister shares the vision of the industry to promote local manufacturing of electronics goods by overcoming our disabilities vis-a-vis other countries and enhance India’ participation in the global value chain,” said a source related to the discussion.

Several milestones achieved by electronics players including the progress of production-linked incentive schemes were discussed during the brief introductory session, he added.
