Manufacturing capabilities in equipment, electronics, radio and optical systems will certainly get a boost," Samsung said in the letter.
According to government sources quoted in Indian media, Foxconn Technology Group company Rising Stars Mobile has also supported the scheme.
The scheme is expected to bring an investment of over $412 million into the Indian economy and generate a massive tax revenue. Global companies with a turnover of $1.3 billion, domestic companies with over Rs 2.5 billion turnover, and MSMEs with annual turnover of over Rs 100 million are eligible to participate in the scheme.
"We are pleased to note the government's focus on supporting domestic companies and MSME in this sector. We also need to support Indian companies with suitable policy intervention that will help them to build domestic research and development and design capabilities and to create an innovative product that can compete on the global stage," ICEA chairman Pankaj Mohindroo said.
