Make in India (MII) is an initiative by the Government of India (GoI) to encourage companies to develop, manufacture and assemble products made in India and incentivize dedicated investments into manufacturing. To provide impetus to the initiative, GoI has launched Production Linked Incentives (PLI) scheme which offers financial incentives to boost domestic manufacturing and make it more resilient to supply chain disruptions. After the success of mobile phone manufacturing, PLI scheme was launched for IT Hardware, Telecom & Networking. VVDN is an approved beneficiary under the PLI scheme of Govt. Of India.
