Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme from the government aims to expand manufacturing and production in India. Firstly the scheme was introduced for only the large scale electronic manufacturing sector in 1 August, 2020. However towards the ending months of the year 2020 the scheme was introduced for over 10 other sectors nationwide.
Production Linked Incentive, or PLI, seeks to reward businesses for increased sales of goods produced domestically. PLI invites foreign businesses to open offices in India, but it also intends to incentivize domestic businesses to open or expand their manufacturing facilities, create more jobs, and lessen India's dependency on imports from other nations.
