ESDM Initiative

Electronics and Hardware Industry is increasingly finding applications in all sectors of the economy and thus is accepted as a key enabler in development of our country. The current growth trend and its existing contribution to the global electronics industry indicates that the share of IT Hardware and Electronics Manufacturing Industry in India, in terms of output and employment, has the potential to grow manifolds, driven by its emergence in the global electronics manufacturing value chain.

In order to create a conductive environment for the manufacture of high technology, capital intensive semiconductors and other high-tech electronic products, to attract global investments as well as to bridge the viability gap due to lack of adequate infrastructure and ecosystem, the Government of India has announced a number of initiatives in the country. To this aspect, there is also a need to ensure the availability of trained human resources to sustain the growth and to achieve the targets set for this sector.

In this regard, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology(MeitY), Govt. of India, has initiated a project entitled 'Capacity building in the areas of Electronics Product Design and Production Technology', being executed by NIELIT Aurangabad, C-DAC Hyderabad and NIELIT Chennai to carry out the manpower development, to promote affordable electronics design, R&D etc.
