The Ground Reality Of ‘Make In India’ In The Consumer Electronics Space

In September 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched one of the flagship projects ‘Make In India’ among a host of other initiatives to build the digital economy. By July 2015, the launch of Digital India backed the Make In India ambitions and together the two projects looked to transform India into a global manufacturing and tech hub.

And in recent times, the Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative also emphasises on transforming India into a global consumer electronics manufacturing hub with an eye on exports and reducing the reliance on imports from countries like China, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Taiwan among others. From a vantage point, it looks promising. But in reality, can this make India 100% self-reliant? Also, are Indian consumer electronic products really ‘Made in India’? 

“Currently, a lot of integral parts we need for creating the best tech for our consumers are not available in India,” said Amit Khatri,
