"With increasing auto production and the government giving incentives, I am sure that our principals (manufacturers) will trickle down the benefits to the end customers. This will therefore help in demand generation and help us in reviving the economy thus making us reach our prime minister's vision of USD 5 trillion economy," Gulati said.

The Union cabinet on Wednesday approved giving PLI to sectors such as auto, pharma, telecom, textile, food product and solar PV.
