    12th Aug, 2022

The Ministry of Heavy Industries launched automated online data transfer for capturing critical data related to domestic value addition in the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the auto sector.

  • The government has approved the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme for Automobile and Auto Component Industry in India (PLI-Auto) for enhancing India’s manufacturing capabilities for Advanced Automotive Products (AAP) with a budgetary outlay of Rs 25,938 crore.
  • The scheme has been successful in attracting proposed investment over a period of five years.


  • The new system will capture data from PLI applicant’s ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system to PLI auto portal.
  • All approved applicants of the PLI Scheme have their own ERP system.

ERP is a type of software that organisations use to manage business activities.

  • The IT-enabled system has been devised to enable smooth transfer of data from the applicant’s existing ERP system to PLI Auto portal of MHI in a safe environment.
  • The Application Programming Interface (API) will get embedded with ERP system of the applicant and will enable automaticity and paperless processing in this scheme.
  • This facility eliminates that voluminous paperwork by bringing in automation.
  • Thus, this IT-enabled system will reduce the compliance burden on the part of the applicants and it will enable faster processing.
