Govt will consider a PLI scheme for the petrochemical and chemical sectors, says Nirmala Sitharaman

The central government of India has announced its intentions to introduce a productivity-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the chemicals and petrochemicals sector. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman shared the government’s plans during an event organized by FICCI, an industry body.

As India aims to achieve energy independence and net-zero carbon emissions by 2070, the proposed PLI scheme is part of the government’s strategy to drive growth and sustainability in crucial sectors. Currently, the government has already rolled out 14 PLI schemes for various industries, including telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, and textiles.

Minister Sitharaman highlighted the importance of the chemicals and petrochemicals sectors, as they have a direct impact on various industries such as construction, packaging, textiles, and agriculture. With India being perceived as an attractive alternative manufacturing destination for these sectors, the PLI scheme is expected to further enhance investment and growth opportunities.

According to reports, India’s specialty chemicals segment has contributed a substantial $32 billion to the country’s economy, reflecting its potential for further expansion and development.

The proposed PLI scheme aims to incentivize and boost productivity, attracting investments, and fostering innovation in the chemicals and petrochemicals industry. This strategic move aligns with the government’s broader vision of transforming India into an energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable nation.

As the government continues to explore new avenues for economic growth and environmental responsibility, the PLI scheme for the chemicals and petrochemicals sector is set to play a crucial role in propelling India’s growth trajectory in the coming years.
