NPE 2019 | National Policy on Electronics | Digital India

Under the policy, the intention of the government will be to promote the promotion of strategic electronics required for defense and other strategic sectors. The first electronics policy came in 2012.

The Union Cabinet gave its approval to the National Policy on Electronics 2019 (NPE 2019) proposed by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology on February 19, 2019. This meeting took place under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. NPE 2019 has replaced the National Policy on Electronics 2012 (NPE 2012). In order to promote chip manufacturing in the country, a proposal for the establishment of a Sovereign Patent Fund has been proposed in the new policy.

The Purpose of NPE 2019

In this policy, India, as a global center of ‘Electronics Systems Design and Manufacturing (ESDM)‘ by creating a favorable environment for encouraging the capabilities of developing important components including chipsets in the country and competing globally. It has been envisaged to be established.

Key facts related to NPE 2019

  • A globally competitive environment will be created for the competitive ESDM sector. Domestic manufacturing and export will be promoted in the ESDM’s entire value chain (Value Chain).
  • Incentives and assistance will be provided for manufacturing of major electronic components.
  • A Special package of incentives for such mega projects will be given, which are extremely high-tech and require huge investments. These include semiconductor facilities, display fabrication, etc.
  • Arrangements related to promoting new units and expanding existing units will create arrangements related to appropriate schemes and incentives.
  • Research and development and innovation will be promoted in the leadership of industry in all the sub-sectors of electronics. In the field of basic or ground level innovation and emerging technology sectors such as 5G, IOT / Sensor, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Virtual Reality (VR), Drones, Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Photonics, Nano-based devices, etc. Early phase startups are also included.
  • Incentives and assistance will be provided for a significant increase in the availability of skilled workers. It also involves ensuring the skills of the workers again.
  • Special emphasis will be on Power Electronics for the Fabulous Chip Design Industry, Medical Electronic Equipment Industry, Automotive Electronics Industry, and Mobility and Strategic Electronics Industry.
  • Sovereign Patent Fund (SPF) will be created to promote the development and acquisition of IP in the ESDM area.
  • To improve the national cybersecurity system, the initiatives related to reliable electronics value chain (value chain) will be encouraged.

Implementation Strategy

With this policy, according to the roadmap envisaged in it, a path to the development of the ESDM sector in the country will lead to a concrete shape of many plans, initiatives, projects, and measures.

Aim of NPE 2019

NPE Effect

In implementing NPE 2019, in consultation with the respective Ministries / Departments, the path of giving a concrete shape to the development of ESDM Sector in the country will give way to the concept of many schemes, initiatives, projects, etc.

This will ensure the flow of investment and technology in India, which will lead to greater value addition of electronic products manufactured in the country and more production of electronics hardware in the country as well as the way to export them. Apart from this, a large number of employment opportunities will also be created.


The implementation of various schemes/programs under the aegis of National Policy on Electronics 2012 (NPE 2012) has successfully strengthened the foundation of a competitive Indian ESDM Value Chain. NPE 2019 has been proposed to further strengthen this foundation so that the speed of development of the ESDM industry in the country can be accelerated.
