After the government of India decided to hike the Basic Customs Duty on several electronic items and components, the electronic industry of India applauded the move. The Indian electronics industry believes that by discouraging imports of electronic items, local manufacturers can be provided with a breeding ground to produce electronic items that are competitive on the global stage.
Rajoo Goel, General Secretary of ELCINA (Electronic Industries Association of India) told ELE Times that the increase in BCD was a welcome move. However, he drew our attention to a rather compelling proposition. Goel called the government to subject populated PCB’s (Printed Circuit Boards) imported from overseas to the same BCD as other electronic items. If the government does listen to Goel’s recommendation, it would mean that Indian manufacturers of PCB’s will heave a sigh of relief.
