Industry body IESA -- India Electronics and  Semiconductor Association--   has applauded the government plans: “These key announcements emphasize the Union government’s strategic thrust to boost our economy by strengthening design led electronics manufacturing, accelerate employment generation and attract substantial foreign capital inflows into the country,” said Ashok Chandak, Chairman, IESA. “The speed and focus of Honorable Minister in capturing industry needs in the announcement on electronics sector is very heartening and is a major milestone towards vision of making India an ESDM powerhouse,” he added.
“IESA has successfully provided inputs to the Union and various state governments on policy matters and roadmap to build “High Value Added” manufacturing eco systems in India and recently announced assistance to the Government of Odisha to set up the first Greenfield EMC in Info-valley, Bhubaneswar, under the EMC Scheme of DeitY,” saidM.N.
