Addressing to Domestic Industry will support “Make In India” Campaign

The electrical and industrial electronics industry has witnessed a 13% growth in Q4 of FY 2014-15. The overall growth of the industry is 9.98% in this fiscal. Although higher imports still plague the industry but policy changes and various initiatives undertaken by the industry and government are eventually showing signs of revival for the sector.
