    “The Automotive PLI scheme of Rs 26,058 Crores launched by the Union Government is all-inclusive. It provides incentives for incremental performance by the OEMs, as manufacturers move towards making India a strong hub for Electric Mobility while also looking at harnessing the potential of Hydrogen energy for automotive applications. It will also support other advanced automotive technologies. PLI has the potential to substantially increase volumes and will provide a huge opportunity for exports to grow. This scheme is being announced at an opportune time for India as the auto industry realigns its supply chain globally. India can therefore capitalise on this changing scenario, to become an integral manufacturing base for the world.”
