CEAMA has been constantly striving to address pertinent issues and sustainable growth of the industry. CEAMA will be working very closely with the government to grow the domestic market across all key product categories in the appliance industry. Also, we look forward to more PLI schemes in other product categories which will strengthen the component manufacturing base in India to reduce dependence on imports and save valuable foreign exchange.
