Centre proposes setting up National Electronics Mission

In a bid to market 'brand India' in electronics, the government has proposed setting up a mission for creating a mechanism to implement various programmes laid down in National Policy of Electronics (NPE).

NPE proposes to set up National Electronics Mission with industry participation to evolve programmes in pursuit of the laid down policies and also to create institutional mechanism to advance the implementation of various programmes,’ Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad  had said in Parliament.
