  • The Union Cabinet has approved the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy’s (MNRE) proposal for the implementation of the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) program for the ‘National Program on High-Efficiency Solar PV (Photovoltaic) Modules,’ to achieve gigawatt-scale manufacturing with an outlay of ₹45 billion (~$605 million).
  • Solar capacity addition depends largely on imported solar PV cells and modules as the domestic manufacturing industry has limited capacity.
  • Mercom’s flagship event Mercom India Solar Summit, to be held virtually on April 8th and 9th, has an exclusive session to discuss ‘Solar Modules to Make or Not to Make in India?’.
