The incentives will be provided by the Ministry of Heavy Industries. The ministry had previously selected 20 applicants under the scheme. The PLI scheme offers incentives of up to 18 per cent to encourage the industry players to make fresh investments in the indigenous supply chain of Advanced Automotive Technology (AAT) products. The government aims to reduce the auto industry's dependence on foreign-based suppliers. Also, the scheme is aimed at boosting the domestic manufacturing sector, which would make the country a major automotive supply chain player. Also, it would boost employment in the country as well.
