Indian government wants its IT hardware industry to be as globally successful as #TCS, #HCLTech and #Infosys — announces PLI scheme worth ₹7,250 crore


By @pabsgill Image
@pabsgill The Indian government announced a new production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for IT hardware today. It includes products like laptops, tablets, all-in-one personal computers (PCs) and servers.

@pabsgill “This completes the triangle of electronic manufacturing in India,” said Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad during today’s #UnionCabinet briefing.

@pabsgill The other two corners of the triangle are the PLI for mobile phones which was announced in April last year and the PLI for telecom gear announced last week.

@pabsgill According to Prasad, the Indian government’s aim is to make Indian IT hardware as successful as Indian IT services — which includes companies like Tata Consultancy Services (@TCS), @hcltech, @Infosys_GSTN, @Wipro and @tech_mahindra — on a global scale.

@pabsgill @TCS @hcltech @Infosys_GSTN @Wipro @tech_mahindra “Ten target sectors along with specific product lines having high growth potential were identified by @NITIAayog for implementation of PLI Schemes. PLI Scheme for IT Hardware is a further step in that direction,” said Prasad.

@pabsgill @TCS @hcltech @Infosys_GSTN @Wipro @tech_mahindra @NITIAayog The government will provide incentives worth ₹7,350 crore over the next four years. It estimates that production will hit ₹3.26 lakh crore with exports worth ₹2.45 lakh crore led by five global champions and ten national champions.

@pabsgill @TCS @hcltech @Infosys_GSTN @Wipro @tech_mahindra @NITIAayog “Right now, the value addition of IT hardware is around 5-10%. In the next five years, this will increase to 20-25%,” said Prasad.

@pabsgill @TCS @hcltech @Infosys_GSTN @Wipro @tech_mahindra @NITIAayog The direct and indirect revenues generated from production under the new PLI scheme are expected to be ₹ 15,760 crore over next 4 years. It also is expected to generate over 1,80,000 jobs during the same time period.

#Datacracy | #Whatsapp, #Signal and #Telegram face a catch-22 situation as India’s new social media rules threaten encryption

@KhaitanCo @SFLCin @IndusLaw @CounterPointTR @SA_LawFirm @internetfreedom @pabsgill Encryption is a safety blanket for many. It is the night light to keep nightmares away. But, that may no longer be the case with India’s new social media regulations.

@KhaitanCo @SFLCin @IndusLaw @CounterPointTR @SA_LawFirm @internetfreedom @pabsgill @Tarunpathak It claims that it does not care about what messages are being passed around, but if an incident is found to have been instigated through social media, they want to know who started it all — they want to find the ‘first originator’.

#Facebook and #Twitter have a ton of new rules to abide by in India ⁠— #WhatsApp may find itself in the toughest spot of all…

By @pabsgill Image
@pabsgill Along with the rules, came a stern message from the Minister for IT, Ravi Shankar Prasad, who essentially told these platforms to brace for increased scrutiny and compliance.

@pabsgill #WhatsApp will be in the toughest spot of all with the government mandating the tracking of ‘first originator’ or the ‘creator of mischief’, which would mean breaking the end-to-end encryption.
