The centre has identified television sets and ACs among the electronics it wants India to build self-reliance and boost export potential in, according to Commerce & Industry Minister Piyush Goyal.
“Television is one of the areas identified by our ministry to focus on and see how we can get back. Televisions, air conditioners, closed circuit TVs — all of these equipment, where there’s no rocket science. And I know for a fact that digital lenses are made in India which are being (exported) even to the United States … But I don’t understand why we are still dependent on imported products for such very elementary stuff,” he said at a virtual interaction with the Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council on Tuesday.
