Govt reopens PLI window for ACs, LED lights – Times of India
NEW DELHI: The government on Monday said it has reopened the application window for its Rs 6,238-crore production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for air-conditioners (ACs) and LED lights with an aim to accommodate more players as several firms have expressed interest for the initiative.
Already 42 firms, including Daikin, Panasonic, Syska and Havells, with committed investment of Rs 4,614 crore, have been provisionally selected as beneficiaries under the PLI scheme for the white goods sector (AC and LED lights).
The commerce and industry ministry said the application window for the scheme will now open again from March 10 to April 25 this year. No application will be accepted after the closure of this window.
“Additional applications are invited under…the scheme guidelines for investments under the scheme on the same terms and conditions as stipulated in the scheme guidelines…The incentive shall be available only for the remaining tenure of the scheme,” it said.
The Cabinet had on April 7, 2021 given approval for the PLI scheme for white goods for manufacture of components and sub-assemblies of ACs and LED lights.
