Yet another piece of ignorance


Er Rajesh Pathak

With the awareness of the country in general and its  achievement in particular  Rahul Gandhi seems to want to remain stranger forever. Country has seen much of it; and the allies of INDI Alliance either. More than the seat sharing tussle, the issue of Rahul as a PM, therefore,  has made them keep falling  apart despite Congress party's factious  display of  indifference.

And now this notion about Rahul gets to be more firm when he gives yet another piece  of his ignorance by telling with utter contempt  that Chinese phones are there in the  hands of the people in  the country in an election rally in MP. But now he is left with no option but to be rubbing the pain of counter attack of Modi's jibe of ‘ Moorkhon ke Sardar' (‘Chieftain of imbeciles').

Modi is not wrong. PLI [Production Linked Incentive] scheme was launched to promote mobile manufacturing inside the country soon after post Covid days that country knows. Under this the production of electronic components and semi-conductors is targeted to undergo manufacturing inside the country itself. The scheme is of 41 thousands crores. Among the proposals came presently so far are from the domestic and foreign companies in general; and contract manufacturers of Apple in particular- such as  Foxcon, Vistron, Pagtron, Samsung, Lava and Dixon. They are mostly those companies that want to take their out of China to other destinations. These companies applied for the production of mobile phones with the cost of 15 thousand or above. However no such limit of cost is set for Indian companies. From this scheme almost 12 lakhs people in country would get employment in the next 5 years.

The result is there for all to see. Today mobile-manufacturing has touched the figure of 4 lac crores in the country. Apple today is making its latest IPhone in . Samsung Giga factory is also working with record production. Once totally dependent on import, India today has become second best ‘Mobile – manufacturing hub' of the .  So says none other than Ashwini Vaishnav, electronics and information minister. The export of IPhones made in the country has touched the amount of 23,000 crore rupees, which is half of the total export from the country so far. By the end of the fiscal year 2022-2023  the total amount earned from export would get to be  1lakh crore by the end of this year, according to a report.

But like mobile phone, the production of laptop, computer and tablet may also   flourish   in the country itself as their import is now banned. Two years back a PLI scheme was started in this sector, the result of which has now begun to be appeared. Hope this time Rahul would not be caught unaware of the report of the performance ever published in this new emerging sectors.
