The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) on April 01, 2020, has issued the Modified Electronics Manufacturing Clusters (EMC 2.0) Scheme. The Scheme proposes to compliment the efforts put-in by the Government to make India an Electronics Manufacturing Hub as envisaged under “Digital India” and “Make in India” initiatives. These EMCs would aid the growth of the ESDM sector, help development of entrepreneurial ecosystem, drive innovation and catalyze the economic growth of the region by attracting investments in the sector, increasing employment opportunities and tax revenues.

Under the EMC 2.0 Scheme, the Electronics Manufacturing Clusters would be established to create infrastructure with common facilities and amenities in EMC projects and upgrade the infrastructure in Industrial Estates or Parks or Areas as Common Facility Centre (CFC) for attracting investment in electronics manufacturing. The scope will cover components that are need based and identified through a feasibility study report to be prepared by the Project Implementing Agency. The financial assistance will be given for creation of world class infrastructure along with common facilities and amenities. It will be provided for setting up both EMCs and CFCs.

The application under EMC 2.0 Scheme will be submitted by the State Government or State Implementing Agency (SIA) or Central Public Sector Unit (CPSU) or State Public Sector Unit (SPSU) or Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (ICDC) such as DMICDC, etc. to Project Management Agency (PMA) along with the details of the Anchor units clearly mentioning the roles and responsibilities of Project Implementing Agency (PIA) and the relevant Anchor Units.
