Production Linked Incentive (PLI)

3. TARGET SEGMENTS

Support under the Scheme will be provided to companies/entities engaged in manufacturing of components of Air Conditioners and LED Lights in India as under:

3.1 Air conditioners:

i. Air Conditioners (Components- High value Intermediates or Low Value Intermediates or sub-assemblies or a combination thereof)

  • Large Investments
  • Normal Investments

ii. High Value Intermediates (Copper Tubes, Aluminium Foil and Compressors)

  • Large Investments
  • Normal Investments

iii. Low Value Intermediates (PCB assembly for controllers, BLDC motors, Service Valves and Cross Flow fans for AC and other components)

  • Large Investments
  • Normal Investments

3.2 LED Lights

i. LED Lighting Products (Core Components like LED Chip Packaging, Resisters, ICs, Fuses and large-scale investments in other components etc.)

8. SELECTION OF BENEFICIARIES

8.1 Mere assembly of finished goods shall not be incentivized.

8.2 Selection of companies for the Scheme shall be done so as to incentivize manufacturing of components or sub-assemblies which are not manufactured in India presently with sufficient capacity.

9.2 Incentive per beneficiary: The incentive per beneficiary will be applicable on incremental sales (net of taxes) of manufactured goods (as distinct from traded goods) over base year subject to ceilings as may be decided and the beneficiary meeting the cumulative investment criteria.

10. REVIEW AND MONITORING

The Empowered Group of Secretaries (EGoS) chaired by Cabinet Secretary will monitor the PLI scheme, undertake periodic review of the outgo under the scheme, ensure uniformity of all PLIs and take appropriate action to ensure that the expenditure is within the prescribed outlay.
