Need for a New Policy under GST - Removing CVD exemption will hurt local manufacture

New Delhi - April 10, 2017

Exemption of CVD was introduced two years ago for Mobile Handsets and Tablets and expanded last year to Mobile accessories such as Chargers, Battery Packs and Headsets as well as to Customer Premise Equipment. This gave a CVD exemption benefit ranging from 11.5% to 10.5% to these manufacturers and brought in large investments in assembly operations. The logical way forward would be to take these benefits to the next level so that the manufacturing activity could move from SKD to CKD and to manufacture of components resulting in establishment of the full eco-system in the country with the resulted benefits and boosting Make in India. ELCINA has been surprised at the announcement by the revenue secretary Mr. Hasmukh Adhia that exemption from CVD will not be allowed to IT and Telecom sector under the new GST regime. The Association apprehends that this will adversely impact local manufacturing and cause a setback to the momentum gained over last two years.

New Delhi - February 1, 2017

Budget 2017-18 put a thrust on digital economy on the back of demonetization and reduce dishonesty and the vagaries of the parallel economy in India. The Indian IT-Electronics sector has undergone transformation not only in terms of market size but also electronics hardware manufacturing capabilities have been boosted by government initiatives like "Make in India". Expressing her views on emphasis laid on digital economy, Debjani Ghosh, Managing Director of South Asia, Intel and President, MAIT said, "We are happy that the budget has laid primary emphasis on digital economy across development areas highlighted by the Finance Minister. Digital economy is now the key enabler for important development initiatives including cashless transactions and government is focusing on last mile connectivity and network penetration across India to further bolster idea of Digital India."
