Union Minister for Electronics and IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has said the Electronics Manufacturing Industry has committed and assured 300 billion US dollar revenue by 2025-26. He said, India has witnessed unprecedented growth in electronics manufacturing in the last five years under the initiatives of Digital India and Make in India programmes.

In an event organized in New Delhi today, Mr. Vaishnaw said, India is taking a lead in the telecom sector and the country’s 5G stack will be the first virtualized 5G stack in the world. He said, India can think of manufacturing at a different scale because the world will move towards ecosystems where our companies will be managing telecom networks across the world.

Ashwini Vaishnaw also awarded 18 ESDM companies for their contribution in electronics manufacturing.
While felicitating the awardees, Ajay Sawhney, Secretary, MeitY said: “We have seen a tremendous impetus to electronics. This is a phase of optimism and growth and electronic sector cannot be missed at all. When all the stakeholders come together, the impact will be entirely different. No country can do it all. No country can have all electronics and complete independence from any part of the world. We can’t depend on someone else for our imports; export is competitive and we have to be there. We do not have to be at a place where we are dependent on imports. We need to be at a place where someone else is dependent on us for exports. Therefore, it is important that we do this together & pull up as Team India: we pull as India Manufacturing Group”.

An exhibition was organised with 18 companies from the ESDM and Emerging Technology sectors showcasing their innovative products and technologies.
